The NFL is wrapping up its Week 1 Sunday slate and Sunday Night Football and Monday Night Football remain. In the meantime, we’ve got some early odds to get you ready for Week 2. The Los Angeles Chargers and Kansas City Chiefs will face off this coming week, with kickoff set for 8:15 p.m. ET on Thursday, September 15.

Patrick Mahomes threw for 360 yards and five touchdowns in the Chiefs’ road start against the Cardinals on Sunday. Mahomes’ favorite 2021 target Tyreek Hill’s absence was not deeply felt by Kansas City, the preseason concern completely averted by the Chiefs’ performance today.

The Chargers were able to hold off the Raiders on Sunday in their season opener. Khalil Mack was a revelation in his first start for LA, racking up three sacks. Justin Herbert’s 279-yard, three-touchdown day was helped on by three interceptions from the Chargers’ defense.

DraftKings Sportsbook posted opening odds for this matchup earlier this week. Here’s a look at what the odds opened at and where they re-opened at for the Chargers vs. Chiefs Week 2 matchup.
