Kansas City Chiefs NFL Betting

The Kansas City Chiefs have a great quarterback in Patrick Mahomes, a great tight end in Travis Kelce and an explosive receiver in Tyreek Hill, but in Super Bowl LV, the Chiefs were exposed as a team that does have weaknesses. The Chiefs rolled through the 2020 regular season, going 14-2 and they were able to get past Cleveland in the Divisional Round even after Mahomes was injured and Kansas City outscored Buffalo to win the AFC Championship Game. Injuries to the offensive line really hurt the Chiefs in Super Bowl LV, as they couldn’t protect Mahomes and the Chiefs were routed, losing 31-9. Kansas City will need to address their offensive line problems in the off-season and find another playmaker or two on offense if they are to win Super Bowl LVI.
