Best Chiefs Betting Lines 2022

The Kansas City Chiefs were viewed as the NFL’s next dynasty following their Super Bowl 54 victory, however, they have yet to win another ring since. And while the Chiefs made it back to the Super Bowl the following season, they most recently were bounced from the playoffs in the AFC Championship Game by the Cincinnati Bengals.

Kansas City left the 2021-22 season with more questions than answers.

The early (by their standards) postseason exit triggered the organization to make changes, notably trading WR Tyreek Hill. They also lost pass-catchers Demarcus Robinson and Byron Pringle in free agency along with top-tier safety Tyrann Mathieu.

While the Chiefs lost above-average talent, they also filled their voids with WR Marquez Valdes-Scantling, WR JuJu Smith-Schuster, RB Ronald Jones, and S Justin Reid.

Kansas City’s reload didn’t stop there. In the 2022 NFL Draft, they attacked defense early with CB Trent McDuffie and DE George Karlaftis, while adding WR Skyy Moore on Day 2. The Chiefs also got some elite value in the form of Justyn Ross as an undrafted free agent.

If Ross can overcome his spinal injury, which made him fall out of the draft altogether, the Chiefs may strike gold.

Chiefs Super Bowl 57 Odds

Chiefs to Win Super Bowl (+1000)

The Chiefs have the third-best odds to win Super Bowl 57 behind the Bills and Buccaneers. And while the Buccaneers have the second spot with (+750) odds, you can make the case that you’re betting Kansas City to win the upcoming Super Bowl at a value.

Are the Bucs really better than the Chiefs? Or do they merely have Tom Brady and an easier path to the Super Bowl? I tend to lean on the latter.

Sure, the Chiefs have lost a pair of marquee players on either side of the ball but they replaced them with a slew of talent, hoping a few of their new additions will ultimately pop.

The Chiefs still employ the NFL’s holy trinity of Patrick Mahomes, Travis Kelce, and Andy Reid, giving them a competitive edge over most at quarterback, tight end, and head coach.

I love the (+1000) value for the Chiefs to win it all.

Chiefs AFC Championship Odds

Chiefs to Win AFC Championship (+500) 

Overall, the AFC vastly improved this offseason. I can make a case for the Raiders, Chargers, Bills, Bengals, Broncos, Browns, and the Chiefs to win the Super Bowl for various reasons.

However, the Chiefs have been mainstays in the AFC Championship game and until I see otherwise, they will remain my favorite to not only get there, but to bounce back and win it.

Kansas City’s offense will never be in question, even without Hill. Kansas City’s defense has been its handicap. But after adding talent in the draft and free agency, we can expect a better defensive product from the Chiefs in 2022, which should catapult them back on top of the AFC.

At (+450), you are getting the Chiefs to win the AFC at a value just like you are with their Super Bowl odds since the Bills are in the top spot at (+350). Sure, the Bills are deserving and have the firepower to get the job done. But the difference is that Mahomes has been there and done that, while Josh Allen has not.

Chiefs AFC West Winner Odds

Chiefs to Win AFC West Championship (+155)

The AFC West is no longer a lock in favor of the Chiefs, though the odds reflect that. However, until one of their division foes knocks them off the top spot, they will remain my favorite to win the AFC West once again.

While the Raiders, Broncos, and Chargers could all win it in 2022, I will continue to favor the team, quarterback, and head coach that have done it before time and time again.

The difference between 2022 and past seasons is because there is more viable completion, you are now getting the Chiefs at (+150) odds to win the West. Normally, there is a minus sign in front of their number.

The Chargers may give the Chiefs a run for their money in December, but I will err on the side of the superior quarterback and Hall of Fame head coach until I see otherwise.

Chiefs Make Playoffs Odds

Chiefs to Make Playoffs (-225)

It would take a catastrophic collapse from the Chiefs if they miss the playoffs. Even if they fail to win the AFC West, they are near a lock to secure a Wild Card berth. It would take a Mahomes injury to knock them off their pedestal.

There is no value here. At (-225) odds, you will need to pay up for any type of a decent return with this wager.

Chiefs Win Total Bets 2022

Chiefs: OVER 10.5 Wins (-115)

The Chiefs’ are slated with a win total of 10.5 games. They have gone over that total in seven of their past nine seasons, including four in a row. You’d have to go back to the Alex Smith era to find the last time the Chiefs failed to record at least 11 wins.

I expect that trend to continue with Mahomes under center. It may be closer this year than in others considering the competition in the AFC West is steeper, but at (-115) odds, it is a wager I am willing to go all-in on.

Chiefs Prop Bets 2022

AFC West Dual Finish: Chiefs/Chargers (+470)

This is one of my favorite team prop bets to make as I am uber-high on both the Chiefs and the Chargers. Although the Broncos and Raiders will be in the mix, I do believe the Chiefs and Chargers are the superior teams in the West. It’ll be a fight to the end, but I like the Chiefs to win the AFC West followed by the Chargers to finish second.

The Chiefs employ experience while the Chargers may deploy one of the best rosters in the NFL. The Raiders and Broncos made improvements, but they still have work to do.

Patrick Mahomes to Win NFL MVP (+800)

If the Chiefs are going to make another Super Bowl run, it will be on the shoulder of a presumably more focused Patrick Mahomes. And if Mahomes has another miraculous season, he will do it without Tyreek Hill and with a new group of pass-catchers outside of mainstays Travis Kelce and Mecole Hardman.

The path to the Super Bowl will not be an easy one for Mahomes in a loaded AFC. So if he does lead his team there, we can expect another MVP award for the young stud signal-caller.

His (+800) number ranks just behind Josh Allen (+700), who hasn’t won anything yet outside of championships for his fantasy managers.

How to Bet Chiefs Moneylines

An NFL moneyline wager is the most straightforward football bet you can make. You’re only required to pick the team you think will win a game. If that team triumphs, you win your bet.

Since all the team has to do to cash your bet is win, you will see the odds for NFL moneylines fluctuate based each team’s implied probability of winning (or losing) that game. A favorite will be identified by a minus symbol (-200), whereas an underdog is represented by a plus symbol (+200).

If the Chiefs are a (-200) favorite, you have to bet $20 to win $10. If they’re a (+200) underdog, you can win $20 off a $10 bet.

How to Bet Chiefs Spreads

Spread betting is the most popular way to bet on NFL games. This wager presents two evenly priced options, regardless of talent disparity between two teams.

The spread, which is set by oddsmakers, is essentially the number of points the favorite is expected to win by against the underdog.

If the Chiefs are 3-point favorites over the 49ers, the spread would look something like this: Chiefs -3 (-110) vs 49ers +3 (-110).

In this scenario, the Chiefs would have to win by more than a field goal to cash your bet. If they win exactly by three points, your bet is a push and you would receive your initial stake back.

How to Bet Chiefs Over/Unders

If you prefer to “fade" the Chiefs spread or moneyline in a certain game, you can still get involved by betting on the total number of points scored.

Oddsmakers will set the line for how many total points they expect to be scored, and then you can bet on either the Over or the Under.

If you have faith in the KC offense and foresee a lot of points being scored, then you’ll want to take the Over. If you think it will be more of a defensive game, then take the Under.

  • 2021 Chiefs Over/Under Record: 10-7
