Kansas City Chiefs Player Stats
Kansas City Chiefs
The Kansas City Chiefs' 2020 season ended in heartbreak with a 31-9 loss in the Super Bowl to Tom Brady and the Tampa Bay Buccaneers, but the season overall was a resounding success. The Chiefs finished the regular season with a franchise record 14-2 mark and took home the AFC West crown for the fifth straight season.
The Chiefs have built a potential dynasty around superstar QB Patrick Mahomes, and oddsmakers are expecting no dips in performance in 2021. The Chiefs lead the league in projected win total, and they're solid favorites to take home the Lombardi Trophy again.
Kansas City Chiefs Point Spreads
The Chiefs lost only two games in the regular season, but that doesn't mean bettors always cleaned up wagering on them, especially on the spread. That's because spread bets -- the most common bet type in the U.S. sports betting market -- are margin-of-victory bets and tied to expectations. The Chiefs were the best team in the league, and that was accounted for in their odds.
Here’s a brief example of a spread for a Chiefs game:
- Chiefs -11.5 (-110)
- Raiders +11.5 (-110)
The way to read the odds is that the minus sign (-) indicates which team is the favorite and "laying" points; the plus sign (+) indicates which team is the underdog and "getting" points. In this example, the Chiefs are 11.5-point favorites vs. the , so a Chiefs would cash if Kansas City won the game by 12 points or more. If the Raiders won the game or just kept it within 12 points, the Chiefs spread bet would be graded as a loss.
Kansas City Chiefs Over/Unders
If you aren't sure how much the Chiefs will win by, and the moneyline is a little too expensive for your liking, might be the way to go. Over/under wagers, also called totals, are bets on the combined point total of the game. It doesn't matter which team wins or loses, and the spread is also meaningless for over/under bets.
Here's an example: The Chiefs vs. game at Arrowhead Stadium might have an over/under of 49 points. That's the key number you're betting against, and you can take a position on either side. If you wanted to bet the over, you would cash your wager if Kansas City and Denver combined for 50 or more points; an under bet would likewise cash if there was 48 or fewer points. It's possible the game could land on exactly 49 points -- think a 31-18 game -- which is called a and all wagers would be refunded.
Moneyline bets are also very popular, and they're more simple than spread bets. You're just betting on which team will win the game, whether it's by a point or 40 points.
Of course, those moneylines are set against expectations, which means the Chiefs will have high marks in most games. For example, the Chiefs in a game against the Raiders might be -300, which means you would have to bet $30 to win $10. The Chiefs won't be underdogs very often, but those odds would have a plus sign (+) next to the number, and you can read it in reverse. For example, a Chiefs moneyline of +150 means you would profit $15 for every $10 you bet on them to win.
Kansas City Chiefs Props
Chiefs players like Patrick Mahomes, Tyreek Hill, and Travis Kelce are some of the most popular draft picks in fantasy football. That's also true in player prop betting, which are wager types around the statistical performance of a single individual playing.
For example, you can bet on a ton of things that revolve around Mahomes, including whether he'll rush for a touchdown, throw a touchdown, how many yards he'll throw for, and more. Some other Chiefs props include Hill to have over/under a set amount of receiving yards, Kelce to catch a TD, and more.
Think the Chiefs are going to rebound this year and Mahomes and Co. will grab another Super Bowl victory? You can bet on that at any sportsbook, and it's called a futures bet. Those refer to pretty much any wager that settles at the end of the season rather than a single NFL Sunday.
