With Prime Video paying the NFL a whopping $13 billion for the right to stream Thursday Night Football for the next 11 years, gone are the days of boring midweek matchups. Tonight, Prime kicks things off in style with the high-flying Los Angeles Chargers visiting the high-flying Kansas City Chiefs. And we have our favorite top bets and DraftKings promo bonuses for WHN readers, as well.
Buckle up. And start streaming.
The Chiefs are at home and are a four-point favorite and -195 on the moneyline.
Patrick Mahomes certainly did not look like he missed Tyreek Hill all that much last Sunday as he lit up Arizona with five touchdown passes.
The Chargers come in ready to steal some of KC’s thunder in the AFC West and have a formidable gunslinger in Justin Herbert who threw three touchdowns against the Raiders.
This could be a classic game — one we’re not used to seeing on Thursday night in Week 2.
When it comes to getting some bang for your buck, there are two DraftKings promos to snag tonight.
The first is to bet $5, and you get a $200 bonus.
The second DraftKings promo: When you bet the moneyline and if at any point your team goes up by 10, you win. Instant payout–get both!
Those who took the Bills last week loved this promo, that’s for sure. Click here
As far as the Commanders go, they are 1.5-point underdogs heading into Detroit on Sunday.
Thursday Night Football Bets We Like:
— Mahomes over 2.5 touchdown passes (+120)
Counting the three playoff games, Mahomes is averaging four touchdown passes in his past four games — including five last week. He’s on fire. He also had three touchdowns in both of his games against Los Angeles last season.
— Mahomes & J. Herbert: 700+ Pass Yards & 7+ Pass TDs Combined (+900)
If you think this is going to be an arial show in Kansas City — and I sure do — this looks like a fun play which could cash out nice. It means a lot of passing touchdowns (the two would have to combine for eight to cash) but why not? It’s a short week and that favors the offenses.
— Chiefs moneyline and Over 54.5 (+195)
There are not many good ways to make money on the Chiefs in this game, but this bet gives decent value if you’re digging the home team.
