Vernon, Illinois "it Colts 11-Point Favorite Chiefs Rate 3 Point Edge Against Oakland By DICK COUCH Associated Press Sports Writer It'll be no great surprise if the Kansas City Chiefs try to sock it to Oakland's defending American Football League champions with a ball-control offense in Sunday's Western Division title playoff. The Minnesota Vikings also figure to play it close to the vest when they tackle high-powered Baltimore for the National Football League's Western Conference crown. But, whatever the' garr- plans, the oddsmakers like Kansas City's chances a lot more than Minnesota's. The Chiefs are rated 3%-point favorites to knock off the Raiders at Oakland while the Colts are 11-point picks to oust Minnesota at Baltimore. The Vikings-Colts survivor will meet the winner of today J Eastern Conference showdown between Dallas and Cleveland on Dec. 23 for the NFL title of the Easter champs' home field. The New York Jets will entertain the Kansas City-Oakland winner the same day for the AFL championship. Kansas City, which finished 1 the regular AFL season in a 12-2 first-place tie with Oakland for the Western lead, found ball- control a potental in the first of two meetings with the Raiders. Len Dawson threw just three passes, but the Chiefs' running backs led the way to a 24-10 victory. Oakland's explosive offense rebounded to smash the Chiefs 38-21 in the re-match. But the Raiders, who have scored more points, 453, and averaged more yards per-game, 406.9, than any other AFL club, wound up their regular schedule with three close-shave victories while Kansas City breezed past its last five opponents. Quarterback Daryle Lamoni- attack against a formidable Kansas City defensive unit that yielded an AFL low of 170 points and led the league with 37 pass interceptions'. Dawson also led the AFL passing standings, although Lamonica had 75 more completions and hit for approximately 1,100 more aerial yards than the Chiefs' signal-caller. The Vikings' best-laid ball control plans went awry in their only regular season collision with Baltimore. The Colts, on the way to a 13-1 finish, won 219, limiting Minnesota to three Fred Cox field goals. They out- gained the Vikings 413-229, with a 70-51 edge in offensive plays. But Colts' pilot Don Shula expects plenty of trouble from the Vikings, 8-6, who beat out Chicago in the Central race for their first division title ever. "The Vikings seldom show you anything fancy," he said Friday. "They like to play ball-control with a just a lot of hard-hitting, sound football." Minnesota quarterback Joe Kapp has thrown 10 touchdown passes—16 fewer than the Colts' Earl Morrall, the league leader. Vikings Coach Bug Grantadmits his club can't match the Coastal kings' knack for scoring "with a haymaker—hte long pass, the big play." Up front, however, the Vikings' defensive front four of Carl Eller, Jim Marshall, Alan Page and Gary Larsen could' give Morrall—and possibly Johnny Unitas—the same kind of BOWLING WHIRL-A - WAY -LEAGUE High Series: Pat Levall 562; Pack Henry 527; Doris KcO 482; Lindell Levall 481.
