Kansas City Chiefs Considered Super Bowl Favorite For Second Straight Year

The Kansas City Chiefs are the favorites to win the Super Bowl for the second year in a row after defeating the Texans 51-31. Right behind them are the San Francisco 49ers who dominated the Vikings 27-10 Saturday night.

According to Caesar’s Sportsbook, the Chiefs are at 11-10 to win Super Bowl 54 at Hard Rock Stadium on February 2. The 49ers are listed second at 7-5 odds, in front of the Tennessee Titans at 15-2 and the Green Bay Packers at 17-2.

The Chiefs trailed the Texans 24-0 early in the second quarter of Sunday’s game, but made a historic comeback en route to a stunning victory behind five touchdowns and 321 passing yards from Patrick Mahomes. Travis Kelce lead Kansas City with 10 catches for 134 yards and three touchdowns.

During October the eventual AFC West Champions were fifth among the favorites to hoist the Lombardi Trophy behind the Patriots, Saints, 49ers and Packers, according to Caesars. During that stretch, Mahomes was nursing a knee injury. Following his return the Chiefs won six straight games to claim first place in the division. Their last loss was against the Titans in November, who they face next week at Arrowhead Stadium in the AFC Championship game.

Prior to the season at the MGM Sportsbook in Nevada, Tennessee was the only team to not receive a bet to win the Super Bowl, according to ESPN. In October their chances were 400-1 and the odds remained in triple digits through December. The Borgata Sportsbook in Atlantic City, NJ offered bets that included picking two teams to reach the Super Bowl. No bets were taken that included the Titans.

“We’d lose a pretty good amount to the Titans in Mississippi,” Alan Berg, senior oddsmaker at Caesars Sportsbook, told ESPN. “In Indiana, we would lose a pile if the Titans won.”

Tennessee enters next week’s AFC title game as 7.5 underdogs. The 49ers are 7-point favorites over the Packers as they host Green Bay in the NFC Championship game.
