Kansas City Chiefs Super Bowl Odds

The Kansas City Chiefs offense will look different come September after a busy off-season. Even with a new offense, the Chiefs’ Super Bowl 57 Odds are still favorable. 

Kansas City finished last season with a 12-5 record, winning their sixth straight AFC West Division title and hosting their fourth consecutive AFC Championship Game, but they failed to make it to their third straight  Super Bowl after losing the AFC Championship to the Cincinnati Bengals in overtime. 

Andy Reid will return to lead the pack as head coach, with Eric Bieniemy returning as offensive coordinator and Steve Spagnulo coming back as defensive coordinator. After a chaotic off-season for the entire AFC West, the Chief’s new lineup will need to be ready to take on the stiff competition in the division.

There is a glimmer of hope, too, that Kansas sports betting will be legalized in the near future. That means Chiefs fans could be placing wagers on their favorite team as soon as this fall.

Kansas City Chiefs Super Bowl Odds And Other Futures

The most notable lineup change is the absence of superstar WR Tyreek Hill, who the Chiefs traded to the Miami Dolphins in March. Despite that, Kansas City is still among the favorites to win the Super Bowl at the end of next season.

Chiefs Offensive Changes

Of course, quarterback Patrick Mahomes will still be piloting the offense, but he will be throwing to some different wide receivers due to the departure of Hill, Byron Pringle, and Demarcus Robinson. 

Kansas City picked up two new receivers who bring a whole new set of diverse skills. They include speedster Marquez Valdez- Scantling, who is tough to take down, and JuJu Smith-Schuster, who is a powerful route-runner with great awareness, and physicality. 

Mahomes still has his trusty tight end Travis Kelce to make plays with, too. Wide receivers Mecole Hardman and Josh Gordon will also be returning to the lineup.

As for the running backs, Clyde Edwards-Helaire and Derrick Gore will be back. Free agents Jerick McKinnon and Darrel Williams’ final landing spots are still up in the air, but the Chiefs did sign Ronald Jones from the Tampa Bay Buccaneers who is known for his fierce running style and efficiency between tackles. 

The Chiefs revamped their offensive line last year and studs like Creed Humphry, Orlando Brown Jr., Joe Thuney, Andrew Wylie, and Trey Smith will be back to bring their power and strength.

Chiefs Defensive Changes

It’s the same old tune when it comes to the Chiefs’ defense — it needs some work. 

The Chiefs did add some talented defensive players with the signings of safety Justin Reid and Deon Bush. Bush will also bring value to Kansas City’s special teams. Reid had seven interceptions, two forced fumbles, three fumble recoveries, and a pair of sacks during his four seasons on the Houston Texans.

With the departure of safety Dan Sorenson and most likely Tyrann Mathieu, Reid and Bush will pair up well with Juan Thornhill. 

Playmaker CB Charvarius Ward signed with the San Francisco 49ers, but the Chiefs still have LB Nick Bolton, LB Willie Gay, CB L’Jarius Sneed, CB Rashad Fenton, DT Derrick Nnadi, and most importantly, DT Chris Jones and DEFrank Clark. 

The Chiefs also added linebackers, Elijah Lee and Jermaine Carter. The team is still waiting to hear what will happen with free agents DE Melvin Ingram, LB Anthony Hitchens, and LB Ben Nieman.
