If you're new to sports betting, here is a quick guide to help you bet the Chiefs.
How do I bet the Chiefs Spread?
Betting the Kansas City Chiefs against the spread is easy! Let's imagine Kansas City is a -6.5 home favorite tonight. The number, -6.5, means the Chiefs needs to win the game by a touchdown to win your bet. If their opponent who is a +6.5 road underdog either wins the game or loses by six points or fewer, your bet would lose.
How do I bet the Chiefs Over-Under?
Another popular bet to make is the Kansas City Chiefs game total. Let's imagine the Chiefs are playing tonight and the total is 43.5 points. You can simply bet over 43.5 points or under 43.5 points. So if you think Kansas City and their opponent will score a lot of points, you'd need 44 total points scored to win your bet. If you think the Chiefs will have a bad game, you'd need both teams to score 43 points or less.
How do I bet the Chiefs Moneyline?
Betting the Kansas City Chiefs moneyline means you expect the Chiefs will win the game outright. Using the example above, if Kansas City is a -6.5 point favorite, their moneyline odds would be -280 and their opponent would be +230.
This means you would have to bet $280 on Kansas City to win $100. If you wanted to bet against the Chiefs, you would win $230 if you bet $100 on their opponent.
How do I bet Kansas City Chiefs Props?
There are many types of prop bets, but here, we'll only focus on team props and player props.
How do I bet Kansas City Chiefs Futures
Kansas City futures bets are a fun way to make long-term bets. For example, before the season starts you can bet over or under Chiefs season win total or bet on the Kansas City Chiefs to win the Super Bowl, conference title, or division.
The biggest drawback to betting futures is having your bankroll tied up for long periods of time, but the payouts can be significant.
How do I bet the Chiefs in-game
How do I read Chiefs betting lines?
Betting sports looks more complicated than it actually is. You will see odds listed like Chiefs -6.5 (-110). The -6.5 portion means Kansas City is favored and needs to win by seven points to cover the spread so you can cash your ticket. The -110 portion is the cost of the wager. When it's negative, that means you need to bet $1.10 to win $1.00. If the number positive, like +110, it means for every $1.00 you bet, you win $1.10.
You may also see things like Kansas City Chiefs 53.5 (-110). The 53.5 is a reference to the total. Choose if you think more or less than 53.5 points will be scored. Similar to the spread, you'll need to wager $1.10 to win $1.00.
Sometimes the betting board will have moneyline odds like Chiefs -250. This is a straight bet to win the game. For this bet, you'll need to bet $2.50 to win $1.00.
What does Chiefs +150 mean?
This means if you bet $100 on Kansas City and they win the game, you will win $150.
What does Chiefs -150 mean?
This means if you bet $150 on Kansas City and they win the game, you will win $100.
How do Chiefs odds work?
Timing is everything in sports betting. Sportsbooks provide betting odds on games so bettors can make wagers on them. If Kansas City played on Sunday, most sportsbooks will post odds for their next game on Monday.
Once the market opens, bookmakers start taking bets on the next Chiefs game. It's important to understand that bookmakers need to minimize their risk (also called exposure) on each game. The books will try to get a balanced amount of money on both the Chiefs and their opponent.
Let's imagine the Kansas City Chiefs open as -4.5 favorites on Monday morning, but on Wednesday an important player like the quarterback is put on the injury list. Because of the injury news, the sportsbook may lower the odds to Chiefs -1.5.
Bettors who bet Kansas City -4.5 early in the week are stuck with a bad "off-market" number. Likewise, bettors who bet the opponent +4.5 now have a good number.
Learning how betting markets move and shift with news and information is what sets apart the professional gamblers from the average recreational bettor.
