Kansas City Chiefs Betting

For the first time in 50 years, the Kansas City Chiefs are Super Bowl champions. The Chiefs beat the San Francisco 49ers 31-20 in Super Bowl LIV, claiming the Lombardi Trophy for the second time in the franchise’s history. Patrick Mahomes’ incredible fourth quarter led to the 2018 NFL MVP being named the Super Bowl LIV MVP, and that has led to many whispering that the Chiefs will be the NFL’s next dynasty. However, they are not the favorites to win it all per the Super Bowl LV betting odds, as the San Francisco 49ers have been installed as the team to beat.

Season Recap

Kansas City was one of the favorites to win Super Bowl LIV coming into the year, but the Chiefs had to overcome some adversity in the middle of the season. They won their first four games as Mahomes threw for over 300 yards in each outing, but they lost at home in back-to-back weeks to Indianapolis and Houston in early October. The Chiefs stopped the skid the following week with a 30-6 victory over Denver, but it appeared that Mahomes might be lost for the season after dislocating his kneecap.

Mahomes missed the next two games due to the knee injury, and he was expected to miss at least four weeks. However, he made an improbable return in Week 10. Kansas City lost to Tennessee in Mahomes’ first game back from injury, but he threw for a season-high 446 yards and showed that he was still the best quarterback in the league. That defeat turned out to be the Chiefs’ last loss of the season.

The Chiefs won their final six games of the regular season to earn the No. 2 seed in the AFC. Kansas City avenged last season’s AFC Championship Game loss to New England by beating the Patriots in Foxboro, and that helped the Chiefs earn the right to host both of their AFC playoff games.

Although Arrowhead Stadium did not present the home field advantage that Chiefs fans are used to in the regular season, it was a house of horrors for Houston and Tennessee in the playoffs. Kansas City fell behind Houston 24-0 in the Divisional Round of the postseason, but the Chiefs erased that deficit before halftime. Mahomes showed us why he is considered the best signal caller in the league, eviscerating the Texans’ defense over the last three quarters to lead Kansas City to a 51-31 win.

Kansas City fought back from a 10-point deficit to beat Tennessee in the AFC Championship Game. The Chiefs once again came back to take the lead just before halftime, as Mahomes dazzled us with his wheels. His 27-yard touchdown run with 11 seconds left in the second quarter took the heart out of the Titans’ defense, and he was as solid as ever in the passing game to lead the Chiefs to their first Super Bowl appearance in five decades.

The Super Bowl betting odds only had the Chiefs favored by a point ahead of Super Bowl LIV, and it appeared that Kansas City was in real trouble after falling behind 20-10 entering the fourth quarter. However, Mahomes turned it on when it mattered most once again in the final 10 minutes. He threw two interceptions and no touchdowns in the first three quarters, but he shook that off to throw two touchdown passes in less than four minutes to give the Chiefs the lead before Damien Williams sealed the victory with a 38-yard touchdown run. It was the fifth time this season that Mahomes led the Chiefs back from a double-digit deficit to get the win. That victory also gave Andy Reid his first Super Bowl title.

2020 Season Preview

As long as Mahomes is healthy, the Chiefs are a frontrunner to win it all. He has already staked his claim as the best quarterback in the NFL, and he has two fantastic weapons to beat defenses in Travis Kelce and Tyreek Hill. Kelce is the best receiving tight end in the league, while Hill’s explosive speed helps Mahomes take the top off defenses.

Kansas City will be a heavy favorite to win the AFC West per the NFL futures odds. Las Vegas, Denver, and the Los Angeles Chargers are all well behind the Chiefs in many areas, and the Chiefs are 11-1 against their division opponents since Mahomes became Kansas City’s starting quarterback.
