Vegas Sports Betting Odds and Season Preview: Kansas City Chiefs

The Kansas City Chiefs had a remarkable season last year; their new head coach Andy Reid was a big part of this success as he was able to shock the entire world by starting the season off with 9-0 record. Though after coming back from their bye week, the Chief went 2-5 and finishing off the season with a 11-5 record allowing them to advance to the playoff. In their first post-season matchup, the Chiefs seemed to have momentum against the Colts as they were in the lead by 28 points; however, the Colts found a way to switch that momentum to their side and were able to come back from a 28 point deficit; Andrew Luck and team were pulled off the second biggest comeback in NFL post-season history, eliminating the Chiefs from the playoffs.

This year, not much has changed with the Chiefs offense; they are sticking with quarterback Alex Smith to lead this Chief team. Jamal Charles is coming back from a stunning year and is looking forward to getting back on the field; Charles was one of the top running backs last season and is highly recommend for your fantasy team as he was the leading running back for the 2013 season. Also, the receiver mix has not changed much since last season. Dwayne Bowe is set as the leading receiver; however the veteran receiver has issues to deal with the league as he has gotten suspended for one game for violating the NFL substance abuse policy; Bowe will therefore miss the season opener. The only major change that happened to this Chiefs offense was losing WR/RB Dexter McCluster who had a somewhat of a good 2013 season in Kansas City in addition with tackle Branden Albert.

As for their defense, well they lost a couple of key names to their defensive mix. Part of this group involves defensive tackle Tyson Jackson who will now be replaced by newly acquired DT Vance Walker originally from Oakland. They also lost linebacker Akeem Jordan and safety Kendrick Lewis. It will be exciting to see how Coach Andy Reid will adjust this defense considering his losses. In my opinion, the Chief will not have a season like they had last year as the odds table show.

Key Losses:

T Branden Albert
WR/RB Dexter McCluster
DT Tyson Jackson
G Jon Asamoah

QB Aaron Murray* (207th Overall / Georgia))
