Kansas City Chiefs NFL Week 13 Betting Lines

Kansas City Chiefs NFL Betting

Since dropping that 24-20 decision at home to Josh Allen and the Bills back in Week 6, the Kansas City Chiefs have rattled off five straight wins to take over the top spot in the AFC standings. After scoring the 26-10 win over the Los Angeles Rams on Sunday, Andy Reid’s squad is now the odds-on favorite to win Super Bowl LVII. While no doubt an exciting turn of events for the franchise considering online sportsbooks expected the franchise to take a step back this NFL betting season, the good fortune hasn’t translated into much success for its wagering supporters. In failing to cover the closing line against the Rams, KC has only managed a point spread cover once in its last seven tries. Early betting reports don’t’ expect them to cover in Week 13 either with the betting market liking the matchup for Joe Burrow and the host Cincinnati Bengals.

On Sunday, December 4, 2022, the Kansas City Chiefs will hit the road looking to avenge last year’s AFC title game defeat to the Cincinnati Bengals. Take it all in live on CBS at 4:25 p.m. ET from Paul Brown Stadium.

Kansas City Chiefs Week 13 Matchup

The lookahead lines initially had the Chiefs laying 2.5-points and the total lined at 51 for this epic AFC standoff. Though the Chiefs enter this huge grudge match smoking hot, it’s the Bengals NFL bettors have attached their wagons to per early week wagering reports. Though its only garnered 52 percent of the early bets, nearly 80 percent of the money booked has taken the points with the home team forcing linemakers to cut the number to beat down to -2. Though Kansas City has been a huge money burner of late, it’s fared extremely well laying three or less points on the road. This scenario has seen it go 8-2 SU and 7-2-1 ATS the last 10 times. It clocked San Francisco in the lone 2022 occurrence bludgeoning the 49ers 44-23 as short 1-point favorites. Though last year’s meetings split against the O/U, total bettors expect this go-round to be of the higher scoring variety with upwards of 80 percent of the bets and 75 percent of the money banking on the over cashing in. The total has swelled to 53 because of it.

These teams played to 34-31 and 27-24 (OT) decisions a season ago with the latter being the more important of the two finals. The three-point loss is likely still one Travis Kelce and Co. are kicking themselves over after allowing Joey Brrrr and his mates battle back from a 21-10 halftime deficit to spring the upset. You can’t help but think the team will go for the jugular this time around if given the chance; easier said than done however with the Chiefs recent issues in the red zone a concern. It only managed one touchdown in six penetrations against the Rams on Sunday, and the prior week only converted half of their four opportunities against the Chargers. Cincinnati boasts the league’s No. 6 ranked red zone defense.

As prolific the Chiefs offense has been to date with it ranked 1st overall in both total and scoring, the Bengals got one heck of an attack themselves with it ranked amongst the top-6 in both statistical categories. And to think it’s still been able to get the job done without the services of Ja’Marr Chase who is expected back for this matchup after missing the last month! Kansas City also sports the lesser of the two defenses with it stout against the run (No. 5) and a sieve against the pass (No. 21). Cincinnati ranks in the top-15 in both statistical categories and enters this tilt playing its best at home where it’s only given up an average of 19.0 points per game. Mahomes – the running favorite to win the MVP Award – is about to be tested!

Kansas City Chiefs Week 12 Recap

Kansas City more or less sleepwalked its way to the 26-10 victory over the Rams to push their win streak to five straight. Unfortunately, the final 16-point margin of victory wasn’t enough to cover all numbers across the board. While the defense surrendered fewer than 200 combined yards and 3.6 yards per play, it was highly evident the unit took LA for granted in allowing it to even put 10 points on the board with Bryce Perkins under center and Cooper Kupp roaming the sideline. It allowed LA to convert all three of its fourth down tries and also allowed its lone red zone penetration to result in a touchdown. Play like that this week against the Bengals and you can kiss that win streak goodbye!

The Kansas City Chiefs were founded in 1960 as the Dallas Texans and charter members of the American Football League. Owner Lamar Hunt was also the founder of the AFL. Shortly after Hunt formed the AFL and his franchise, the NFL counter-attacked with a declaration of war. The Dallas Cowboys were created to fight the Texans in the Dallas and Fort Worth area. Following their 1962 AFL championship, the Texans were wooed to Kansas City, where they became profitable.

The Kansas City Chiefs were one of the greatest teams in NFL history from 1966 through 1971. The Chiefs played in the first Super Bowl, losing to the Green Bay Packers. Kansas City then beat the Minnesota Vikings in Super Bowl IV. The AFL and NFL merged after that game.

Those Chiefs teams were loaded with Hall of Famers such as coach Hank Stram, quarterback Len Dawson, kicker Jan Stenerud, linebackers Willie Lanier and Bobby Bell, defensive backs Johnny Robinson, and Emmitt Thomas, and defensive linemen Buck Buchanan and Curley Culp.

The Chiefs went into a dark period from 1974 through 1988 before new team president Carl Peterson and coach Marty Schottenheimer made them into perennial contenders in the 1990s.

But it was not until Andy Reid arrived as head coach that the Chiefs returned to the Super Bowl and won it 50 years after their first title. Quarterback Patrick Mahomes surpassed Len Dawson as the best in franchise history.

The Chiefs are a proud legacy franchise. In fact, the AFC championship trophy is named after their late great Hall of Fame founder Lamar Hunt.
