The Kansas City Chiefs will meet the New York Jets on Sunday and oddsmakers have posted an eye-popping point spread for this Week 8 matchup.

Clearly the gap between these two teams is massive, with the Chiefs the current Super Bowl favorites at 4-1 while the winless Jets’ 1500-1 odds are the worst in the league.

Kansas City is a whopping 20.5-point favorite (see live NFL odds here) against New York, which is one of the biggest spreads tracked by our Bet Labs software.

Here’s a look at the largest spreads in our database, which tracks historical NFL betting information since the start of the 2003 season:

Game Year
Jaguars at Broncos (-27) 2013
Eagles at Patriots (-24) 2017

Dolphins at Patriots (-22) 2019
Jets at Patriots (-20.5) 2019
Colts at Patriots (-20.5) 2011
Jets at Patriots (-20.5) 2011

The Cowboys were the only favorites of the seven above to cover the number, beating the Dolphins 31-6 last season.
