NFL 2020 Week 1 Odds: Kansas City Chiefs should be on your betting slip
The start of the 2020 NFL season may be months away, but week one odds are already up on a lot of sportsbooks. With oddsmakers already posting opening week 1 lines, there are loads of opportunities to jump on early value. We have already taken a look at the best Week 1 NFL bet, but what other teams should already be on your betting slip months before kick-off?
Let’s take a look at the matchup between the Houston Texans vs. Kansas City Chiefs as there is a huge lean for one team.
At the moment, you can currently get the Kansas City Chiefs as a 10.0 point favorite against the Houston Texans. Even though double-digit lines may turn away the average bettor, this number could rise near opening kick-off. Getting the Chiefs as a 10.0 point favorite has so much underlining value to it. Head Coach Andy Reid is one of the best coaches to bet alongside heading into the new season as he is 6-1 straight up in Week 1 games since arriving in Kansas City. Everyone saw the magic Kansas City carried when they took down the Texans in the playoffs in 2019, just wait until you see the type of magic the Chiefs can bring to kick-off the season. Looking at those six weeks one wins for head coach Reid, the Chiefs have an average margin of victory of 13 points. Last year, the Chiefs beat the Jacksonville Jaguars on the road by 14 points in week one.
With having an impressive win-loss ratio in week one, Reid also holds a 5-2 against the spread record in those games as well. It may seem crazy to bet on Kansas City so early before the season begins, but this matchup could easily see the Chiefs as 13 point favorites before kick-off. The chalk is going to be so heavy here that it’s worth to be one of the few to jump on it first before the line becomes too much to handle. Adding onto Reid’s success, Kansas City is also coming in as the defending champions as they tore up the playoffs at home. Kansas City won it’s last three home games by a combined score of 94-33 with easily covering the spread in those three contests. Kansas City also comes into this game with winning six straight games and covering in each of those as well. It’s scary to even ponder going against the Kansas City Chiefs as the defending champions should be on your betting slip as soon as possible. Getting the Chiefs as 10.0 point favorites is a straight-up steal.
