Kansas City Chiefs have already announced that wide receivers Tyreek Hill and Sammy Watkins will not be available for their Week 17 meeting with the Los Angeles Chargers. The big questions that have been swirling around is whether the Chiefs will sit starting quarterback Patrick Mahomes or not. As of Friday Mahomes is still projected to be the starter versus the Chargers.
Los Angeles Chargers will be without their top wide receiver Keenan Allen. They will also be without key pieces to their defense. The Chargers are hoping to end the 2020 NFL Season on a four game winning streak.
This game would be a good game to stay away from when it comes to betting odds. The spread is low but with all the missing pieces on the Kansas City Chiefs offense it would be tough to pick them.
Lets take a look at how the betting odds will playout in the Week 17 meeting between the Chiefs and Chargers.

Los Angeles Chargers vs Kansas City Chiefs Spread

Kansas City is going to be missing Tyreek Hill, Sammy Watkins, and potentially their starting quarterback Patrick Mahomes.
