Odds Favor Kansas City Chiefs But Loss Today Would Likely End Their Season

We check a bit of history and the line from bookies . . . 

To be fair, most expect a tough but fiery victory after the home opener shocking defeat.

Here's the numbers game to help put everything in perspective . . . 

Teams that start 0-2 are historically a terrible bet to make the playoffs. Before last season, only 9.5% of 0-2 teams made the playoffs. The Cincinnati Bengals were the only one of five 0-2 teams to make it last season. It's not a death sentence, especially for a team like the Chiefs, but it's not a hole they want to be in.

It's also not a hole anyone expects them to be in after Sunday, especially with three extra days of rest.

The Chiefs don't have an easy test in Week 2 though. They travel to play at the Jacksonville Jaguars, the clear frontrunner in the AFC South. The Chiefs are 3.5-point favorites at BetMGM.

The Chiefs were favored by just 2.5 as the week started, but that was before some good news. Defensive lineman Chris Jones ended his holdout. The Chiefs defense played pretty well without him and will be better with Jones on the field. Then tight end Travis Kelce returned to practice. There's no guarantee he'll play Sunday but it seems like he's trending in that direction.
