Kansas City Chiefs Odds, Players, and Bet Types
The Kansas City Chiefs have been one of the NFL’s most complete teams over the past few years. After a win in Super Bowl LIV, the Chiefs went 14-2 in 2020 and were AFC champions once again. Despite being favored by three points in the Super Bowl, Kansas City lost 31-9 against Tampa Bay. Though the loss soured an otherwise dominant season, the Chiefs are back and more than capable of being the last team standing on the final day of the season.
If you want a short answer to why that is, it’s because the Chiefs have Patrick Mahomes . The fifth-year pro went 14-1 as the starter during the regular season, throwing for 4,740 yards and 38 touchdowns against only six interceptions. His completion percentage was a career-high as were his 308 rushing yards. Mahomes will turn 26 in September 2021 having already won MVP and played in two Super Bowls.
The Chiefs also went out and upgraded an offensive line that only allowed 24 sacks last year. General manager Brett Veach lured former All-Pro guard Kyle Long out of retirement in addition to trading for Orlando Brown and signing Joe Thuney . Neither Brown nor Thuney has missed a game in their careers to date. That’ll also benefit second-year running back Clyde Edwards-Helaire , who averaged 4.4 yards per carry as a rookie.
Let’s not forget about Kansas City’s two All-Pro receivers. Tight end Travis Kelce was a unanimous first team choice after racking up 105 catches for 1,416 yards and 11 touchdowns. Tyreek Hill also made the first team with 87 catches, 1,276 receiving yards and 17 total scores.
And for the second straight year the Chiefs finished with a top-10 scoring defense. All-Pro safety Tyrann Mathieu and defensive tackle Chris Jones lead that unit as two of seven returning players to make double-digit starts last year. Mathieu recorded a team-high six interceptions to go with 62 total tackles and nine pass breakups. Jones anchored the pass rush with 7.5 sacks, four pass breakups.
The Chiefs open the 2021 NFL season at home against the Cleveland Browns. You can view the Action Network’s top odds for the game below in addition to an NFL odds comparison for every Week 1 game right here.

Betting on the Kansas City Chiefs
Kansas City Chiefs Point Spreads
Betting point spreads are wagers based on the expectation that a team will win or lose by a certain number of points. Despite a 14-2 overall record, the Chiefs were just 7-9 against the spread. Kansas City’s 14 wins were by an average of 9.7 points while its two losses were by 12.5 points. Those wide margins often prevented Kansas City from covering.
Here’s an example:
- Raiders +2.5 (+110)
- Chiefs -2.5 (-110)
In this situation, the Raiders are 2.5 point underdogs against the Chiefs. If Kansas City wins the game by three or more points, a $100 wager on the Chiefs would come with a payout of $90.91. If Las Vegas won the game outright or lost by two points or less, the same $100 wager would net $110 plus the original $100 for a total of $210.

Kansas City Chiefs Over/Unders aka Chiefs Totals
Over/under, also called a point total, is a wager placed on the combined scoring of a single game. Bookmakers come up with a number and you can either bet the over or — you guessed it — the under. Here’s how it works:
Let's say the Chargers play the Chiefs and the over/under is set at 62 points. A wager on the over would require Kansas City and Los Angeles to score 63 total points or more to win. Betting the under is an expectation that the two teams would score 61 or fewer points. It's also possible for the bet to push, which would happen if the game finished with exactly 62 points scored.
In 2020, Kansas City averaged 29.6 points per game (6th-most) and allowed 22.6 points (10th-fewest). The Chiefs were a .500 team when it came to point totals, hitting both the over and under in 50 percent of their games.
At 14-2, Kansas City was the best NFL team to pick in 2020 when using the moneyline. It’s as straightforward as it gets when it comes to betting. The only thing to do here is pick the winner. Check out this example:
- Chiefs -110
- Broncos +220
The minus (-) and plus (+) signs distinguish the favorite from the underdog, making Kansas City the favorite in this scenario. Odds can be understood more clearly if you think in terms of $10 or $100 increments. A wager on the Chiefs odds would mean every $110 bet nets $100. And it's the opposite for underdogs: Here the Broncos moneyline was set at +220, meaning a $100 wager would profit $220.
Moneylines are also commonly used when making parlays, which are multiple bets tied into one. Let’s say you bet the Chiefs moneyline and a -2.5 point spread, Los Angeles would need to win by three points or more for that bet to be successful. The risk is greater, but so is the reward with increased odds. Use our Odds Calculator to calculate any bet amount or conversion.

Kansas City Chiefs Props
Player props are wagers on a single player, and they're tied to a single stat found in the box score for a game or even the whole season. These are among the most fun to bet on, especially if you're already playing fantasy football and like the player-specific focus it offers. Check out a hypothetical example below:
- Patrick Mahomes 2021 passing yards: 4,800.5
Let’s break it down a bit. Mahomes averaged 316 passing yards per game in 2020, slightly down from his MVP pace in 2018. Assume the number drops to 305. If Mahomes sustained that pace over 16 games, he’d be up to 4,880 yards and be over his projected mark. Now remember the NFL added an extra regular season game in 2021. Mahomes hasn’t played every game in either of the past two seasons. If he sits out the final week with first place locked up, he’d still hit his mark. If he needed to play in Week 18, he’d exceed this prop comfortably.
Futures are somewhat similar to prop bets in the way that both are monitored over the course of a season. Except most future bets are focused on end of season success. Examples of futures are:
- Kansas City Chiefs odds to win the AFC West
- Kansas City Chiefs odds to win the AFC
- Kansas City Chiefs odds to win the Super Bowl
- Patrick Mahomes’ odds to win MVP
- Tyrann Mathieu’s odds to win Defensive Player of the Year
If you’re confident that the Chiefs are going to win the AFC West for a sixth straight season or that Mahomes is going to pick up his second MVP award, this is the place to be. For a full list of NFL futures, click or tap here.
Chiefs Team Rivals
The Chiefs have firmly established themselves as the team to beat in the AFC West. Kansas City went 14-2 in 2020 to win its fifth consecutive division title. In that time, it has also won a Super Bowl, played in another and reached an AFC Championship Game.
Well behind Kansas City last year were the Las Vegas Raiders in second place at 8-8. The Raiders started 6-3 but fell apart down the stretch as they’ve made one playoff appearance in the last 18 seasons. The Los Angeles Chargers placed third at 7-9 after winning four games in a row to close the year. And in fourth place was the Denver Broncos at 5-11.
