Kansas City Chiefs NFL Week 3 Betting Lines

Kansas City Chiefs NFL Betting Online

The Kansas City Chiefs turned the page on their disappointing home opener against the Detroit Lions by going into Duval County and coming out with an impressive 17-9 win and cover against the Jacksonville Jaguars. While the offense still looked to be finding itself under new OC Matt Nagy, Steve Spagnuolo’s defense rose to the occasion to allow for the team to get out of dodge with the win and cover against the NFL odds in tow. The NFL betting market is banking on Kansas City logging another win in Week 3 with the Chiefs looking like they’ll be one of the bigger liabilities of the week for the online sportsbook. Who can blame them as bad Chicago has looked in every phase of the game through the first two weeks?

Kansas City Chiefs Week 3 Matchup

On Sunday, September 24, 2023, the Kansas City Chiefs will host the Chicago Bears from Arrowhead Stadium in Kansas City, MO. Kickoff time is set for 4:25 p.m. ET with television coverage on FOX. The betting line for this non-conference clash hit the board with Kansas City laying 11.5-points and the total set at 50. The number to beat has since climbed to a week-high -13 with linemakers getting absolutely zero attention from NFL bettors who watched Chicago kill itself with turnovers and nauseating offensive play over the last two weeks. So much so that the total has been blitzed with under money to the point that linemakers dropped it 2.5-points to 47.5 with over 90 percent of the action and handle expecting the final outcome to be of the lower scoring variety. Kansas City is no stranger to laying copious amounts of chalk in front of the hometown faithful. Dating back to November of the 2020 season, the Chiefs have done so ten times and came out the victor on each and every occasion. They only went 4-6 against the closing NFL odds in those matchups, but each and every triumph came in the last six occurrences with Mahomes under center. Under tickets cashed six times with an average of only 43.1 points scored. Regardless of supposedly shoring up the offensive line in the offseason, Chicago rates out with one of the worst front walls in the game through the first two weeks with it already allowing Justin Fields to get thrown to the turf ten times. That should be music to the ears of Chris Jones and Co. who got back to getting after the quarterback last week with the Pro Bowl DL back in the mix against the Jaguars.

Kansas City Chiefs Week 2 Recap

Travis Kelce returned to the fold for the Kansas City Chiefs in last week’s run-in with the Jaguars in Duval County. Though his presence didn’t do much of anything to improve upon the overall scoring output, the future Hall of Fame tight end was a sight for sore eyes for Mahomes who targeted him a team-high nine times with one turning into what proved to be the game-winning touchdown strike at the outset of the third quarter. With the defense holding Trevor Lawrence and Co. to 271 combined yards and 4.2 yards per play, it proved to be enough to help lead Kansas City to the 17-9 win and cover as 3-point favorites per the closing NFL odds. The triumph proved to be one of the few to cost the online sportsbook in Week 2 with 63 percent of the bets and 58 percent of the money expecting KC to even up its overall record after dropping a tough decision at home to the Detroit Lions the prior week. The story of the game proved to be the defense which flexed its muscles en route to holding Jacksonville out of the end zone on three red zone penetrations as well as preventing it from moving the chains on nine of 12 third down tries and forced a turnover on downs the two times Doug Pederson decided to go for it on fourth down. Provided the defense continues to flex its muscles, Kansas City will live up to its Super Bowl LVIII billing once the offense gets into a rhythm. Let it be known Kadarius Toney hauled in all five of his targets for 35 yards, and Skyy Moore turned his three receptions into 70 yards and a touchdown saunter.

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.
