Just how bad of a beatdown do oddsmakers think the Chiefs are going to put on the Jets in Week 4?

Anyone who was trying to ring alarm bells around the Chiefs after a Week 1 loss looked mighty silly on Sunday when the Chiefs slaughtered the Chicago Bears. That's obviously not an impressive opponent, but the Chiefs did what good teams do against weak opponents.

And they're projected for more of the same in Week 4 against another weak opponent.

Here's what the opening betting odds have to say against the Chiefs vs. Jets Week 4 Sunday Night football matchup.

Chiefs vs. Jets Opening Odds Week 4

The Chiefs have opened as 9.5-point favorites over the New York Jets, with -430 moneyline odds. The Chiefs' side of the spread is slightly favored as well, predicting a win by at least 10 points on Sunday night.

The game is not projected to be a shootout either, with just a 43-point over/under.

Despite losing in Week 1, the Chiefs are one of only six teams in the NFL (pending Monday Night Football's results) with an average scoring differential of at least +10.0 on the year, while the Jets rank 24th in that stat at -6.3.

The Jets just suffered a 5-point loss at home against the New England Patriots, who have looked really bad to start the season. The Chiefs are a much bigger threat to drop a big score on the Jets, and it would be no surprise if this looked more like New York’s 20-point loss to the Cowboys from Week 2.
