NFL Week 5 picks, predictions:

The Arizona Republic: Chiefs 40, Raiders 28

Jeremy Cluff writes: "After somehow losing to the Colts, the Chiefs looked more like the Chiefs in their Week 4 win over the Buccaneers. We think the Week 4 team will show up in Week 5 against the Raiders."

Bill Speros writes: "Patrick Mahomes was in full Slytherin form against the Buccaneers Sunday night. If he uses half the wizardry in Kansas City against the no-one-can-believe-they-actually-won-a-game Raiders, the Chiefs could put this one away early. The Chiefs at -6.5 looks good for our NFL Week 5 best bets."

Will Patrick Mahomes and the Kansas City Chiefs beat the Las Vegas Raiders on Monday Night Football in NFL Week 5?

It writes: "The Raiders offense boasts tremendous potential, it’s clear that Josh McDaniels is still working to find a balance between beating teams through the air and staying true to the ground game. Meanwhile, the Chiefs seem to have not missed a beat even with the departure of Tyreek Hill. The last time these two played Kansas City came out on top 48-9, and while it may not necessarily be another blowout the Chiefs clearly have an advantage when playing at Arrowhead. Las Vegas could make it interesting, but the Chiefs should be equipped to cover on Monday night."

Fan Duel: Chiefs will cover vs. Raiders in Week 5

Larry Rupp writes: "The Chiefs could pull away in this one with the crowd support behind them, according to the opening betting lines. ESPN's FPI seems to also think Kansas City wins big and I agree. Quarterback Patrick Mahomes has torched the Raiders throughout his career, going 7-1 with a 22:3 TD/INT ratio in 8 matchups. Las Vegas has struggled to gel in the early going."
