Chiefs 2013-14 NFL Season Odds
KANSAS CITY, MO (The Spread) - Could the Kansas City Chiefs be a sleeper with a new head coach and new quarterback?
According to oddsmakers from online sports book Bovada.lv, the Chiefs are 50/1 long shots to win the 2014 Super Bowl and 25/1 to win the AFC Conference this season. They're also +400 to win the AFC West Division and have an over/under total of 7.5 for number of wins this season.
The Chiefs had an active offseason, first naming Andy Reid head coach and then hiring John Dorsey as general manager. Doug Pederson and Bob Sutton were also hired as the offensive and defensive coordinators, respectively, and then the team acquired quarterback Alex Smith from the 49ers. Dunta Robinson, Donnie Avery and Sean Smith were some of Kansas City's bigger free agent signings, and wideout Dwayne Bowe signed a new five-year deal back in March.
In the draft, the Chiefs selected Central Michigan offensive tackle Eric Fisher with the first overall pick. They also selected Cincinnati tight end Travis Kelce and Arkansas running back Knile Davis in the third round, as well as Alabama linebacker Nico Johnson in the fourth.
The Broncos remain the favorite to win the AFC Conference so they'll be tough to unseat in the AFC West. But the Chiefs are viewed as a sleeper under Reid and if Smith can have a good season, there's no reason to believe that this team can't challenge for at least a wild card spot. The talent is certainly there.
