The Chiefs aren't the offensive juggernaut they've been in past years, but they're still one of the hottest teams in football and come into the game in awesome form. As for the Chargers, they've had an up-and-down season, but a win tonight would put them in awesome position to make a playoff run.

So, with so much on the line, what are the most popular bets for tonight? Let's take a look at the five most popular bets for Thursday Night Football in Week 15.

Chiefs -3

As I said, the Chiefs are one of the hottest teams in the NFL right now, so it makes sense to see them being backed so heavily. As just 3-point favorites, bettors are running to the window to back them. 78% of all spread bets are on the Chiefs, but we've seen another interesting trend. Even though such an overwhelming amount of bets are backing the Chiefs, only 43% of the money is on KC. Does sharp money know something we don't?

Chiefs -343%78%

Over 52

When it comes to the total on Thursday Night Football, it seems that just about everyone is on the same side. Hammer the over. since betting opened on this game, 89% of all bets on the total have been on the over. Not to mention that 95% of the handle is backing the same side. The over/under opened at 50.5 but has since been bet all the way up to 52. If you want to back the over on Thursday Night Football, you better get on it now before it goes up more.

Over 5295%89%

Travis Kelce to score 1st Touchdown (+800)

This is an interesting one. There is no denying Travis Kelce's talent, but he hasn't been finding the end zone this year as much as he has in the past. Through 13 games, Kelce has just five receiving TDs . Now, I understand the play from a value perspective. You're getting +800 on a guy that has 109 targets this season. I just don't know if it makes sense from a trends perspective. Either way, it's the most popular prop bet for Thursday Night Football.

Chiefs to win and both teams to score 20+ points (+180)

Based on everything we've told you so far, it makes sense that this bet would be one of the more popular wagers for TNF. We already know that 78% of the people are on Chiefs -3 and 89% of bets are on the over. So, why not combine a Chiefs win with points being scored for +180 odds? The one thing I would worry about is the fact that the KC defense has been fantastic of late. It may not be easy for LA to get to 20 points tonight.

Travis Kelce to score and Chiefs to win (+105)

Another popular prop pick that isn't the least bit surprising. Kelce is being bet heavily and so are the Chiefs, so makes sense to see them combined in this prop. I like this one much better than the Kelce first TD bet. The chances of him finding the end zone first tonight aren't great, but he could get in there over the course of the game. If you like the Chiefs to win, consider this one.
