Kansas City Chiefs Super Bowl Odds Sit at 33/1

Bovada, an online Las Vegas sports book, has released a fresh slate of Super Bowl odds now that the NFL draft and free agency are completed. Kansas City’s odds are a bit of a long shot but they are better than you might think.

Vegas sets the Chiefs odds at 33/1, on par with the Pittsburgh Steelers and ahead of the Arizona Cardinals, Atlanta Falcons, Baltimore Ravens, Cincinnati Bengals, and Dallas Cowboys. Only the AFC West’s Denver Broncos (7/1) have better odds than the Chiefs.

If you break it down simply by the AFC, here are the rankings:

Denver: 7/1

New England: 15/2

Indianapolis: 20/1

Kansas City: 33/1

Pittsburgh: 33/1

Baltimore: 40/1

Cincinnati: 40/1

Houston: 40/1

San Diego: 40/1

Cleveland: 50/1

Miami: 50/1

New York Jets: 66/1

Buffalo: 75/1

Tennessee: 75/1

Jacksonville: 100/1

Oakland 100/1

By this standard there is reason to believe the Chiefs should be serious playoff contenders in 2014. While the Chiefs are probably looking at trying to get in via the wild card again, assuming these odds stay true, there is reason to believe Kansas City ranks well when compared to other AFC teams.

Hey, it isn’t perfect, but it is something.

    “While the Chiefs are probably looking at trying to get in via the wild card again….” Nah, I say they just go all out and win that pig.They can do it, they have to believe they can do it and stay consistent.

      I like the way you think.

    I think it will either be Denver because they are the best, New England with the upset, or Baltimore as the sleeper. However, I think KC is at least on equal footing with Indy. Indy may be more powerful, but they are inconsistent. We’ll see.

    Playoffs, baby! Interesting Vegas thinks so highly of KC Given the strength of our schedule. Perhaps it’s not just the kool aid I drink.
