How to bet on the Kansas City Chiefs
The moneyline is the simplest of bets, decided by the straight-up winner and loser of each game. Consider the following example:
- Chiefs -185
- 49ers +310
The Chiefs are considered heavy favorites in this matchup (indicated by -185), requiring a $185 bet to win $100 (plus the initial bet back). The 49ers are the underdog in this matchup, paying out $410 total for a $100 bet ($310 in winnings). How much either team wins or loses by does not matter in moneyline betting, the payout remains the same.
Betting on the point spread is determinant on how many points a team wins or loses by. Take the following example:
- Chiefs -7.5 (-110)
- Patriots +7.5 (-110)
In this example, Kansas City is favored by 7.5 points, indicated by “-7.5.” If the Chiefs win the game 30-21, the Chiefs (-7.5) win the bet and would have a total payout of $19.09 on a $10 bet ($9.09 in profit). If the Patriots keep the game within eight and lose 28-24, the Patriots (+7.5) would win, and the payout would be the same as listed above.
Point total (over/under)
The point total refers to the over/under line set by books. This number projects the total number of points scored in a game and, like prop betting, is bet whether one thinks the score will go over or under the set point total. For example, the Chiefs’ Week 6 matchup with the Buffalo Bills had a projected point total of 59.5 points. Kansas City won the game 26-17, totaling 43 points. Those who bet under the point total in this game would have cashed out.
The Chiefs’ explosive offense and ability to score bunches of points in a short amount of time often gave them a higher than league average for over/unders. In 2020, it wasn’t uncommon to see point totals like the aforementioned 59.5 points and that’s expected to continue into 2021 as long as Patrick Mahomes plays at an elite level.
Live betting and in-play
Sometimes, the most thrilling and rewarding bets are bets made while games are being played. These are referred to as live bets or in-play bets. Odds are ever-changing during games, which would prove to be fruitful for sharp and prepared bettors. For example, if the Chiefs (-255) were heavily favored against the Giants (+190) before kickoff, a payout on a $10 bet on the Chiefs to win would win just $3.92.
However, say the Chiefs fell to a big 17-3 deficit in the first half despite controlling the overall game (due to a costly turnover or special teams gaffe). Odds may swing in favor of the Giants, who may be a -110 favorite at halftime. Taking the Chiefs to come back and win the game could present plus-odds (say, +130). Should a bettor take Kansas City (+130) at halftime and the Chiefs pull off the comeback, winners would win $13 instead of $3.92 (plus the initial $10 bet).
This could also be an effective way to “hedge” your bet; say a bettor took the Giants (+190) in that game, but Kansas City jumps out to a 21-0 first quarter lead and is controlling the overall feel of the game, bettors could hedge by throwing some money down on Kansas City (-320) to return some of the inevitably-lost bet.
Parlays and teasers
You can always string bets together in the form of parlays or teasers. Usually during busy Sundays, bettors can parlay several teams to win or cover against the spread and if all bets are successful, the payouts are multiplied. Teasers function similarly, except they allow bettors to move each point spread to a more favorable line in exchange for diminished odds.
Futures are long-term bets that can range from an offseason to a full season (or beyond). Team win totals, award winners, and player performance are common futures.
