The Kansas City Chiefs continue to be the underdog despite having one of the best records in the NFL. Todd Haley’s team is currently being given five points by the wonderful folks in Vegas.
You can see the logic here. The Chiefs were considered to be a bad team so they were naturally underdogs, even at home, against the Chargers to open the season.
The next week they went on the road to face a Cleveland team that torched them on the ground just a few months earlier. They Chiefs won ugly.
In their third game, the Chiefs were underdogs at home against the 0-3 49ers. This one is a head scratcher. I guess the Cleveland win wasn’t as convincing for Vegas as the 49ers’ loss to the New Orleans Saints the same week.
The Chiefs covered the spread. And then some.
More after the jump.
Last week the Chiefs were on the road in Indy and were 8-point underdogs. Thought they played better than anyone really expected, KC still lost by ten.
I think the Chiefs have a much better chance against the Texans than they did against the Colts but I can see why Vegas has the Chiefs as the underdogs once again.
My guess is that the Chiefs won’t be favored until next week when they return home to take on the Jacksonville Jaguars.
What do you think Addicts? Do you like the Chiefs as the underdog or do you think Vegas should give them more respect?
