2012-2013 Regular Season: 2-14 SU | 5-11 ATS
The Chiefs were one of the bottom-feeders in the NFL last year with a 2-14-0 SU record – tied with the Jacksonville Jaguars for worst in the league. Against the spread they weren’t any better going 5-11-0 ATS for third worst in the league. However, things are looking up for the Chiefs in the upcoming season as they have three key new personalities trying to rebuild the franchise, starting off with the acquisition of former Philadelphia Eagles head coach Andy Reid.
Other than Reid, the Chiefs also got a bargain in getting QB Alex Smith, who had a good run with the SF 49ers. Before Smith was replaced at QB he logged in respectable 104.1 QB Rating as a starter. Third, they had the overall #1 pick in the recent NFL Rookie Draft and which they used on Eric Fisher, the Central Michigan offensive tackle, who was named Second-Team All-American and First-Team All-Mac in his last year in college. Kansas City hopes that these offseason transactions can lead them to more wins. The 2013 regular season total wins odds list their line at 7 wins. The Kansas City Chiefs are priced at +5000 to win the 2014 Super Bowl.
Week 3 of the Chiefs’ schedule pits them against the Philadelphia Eagles which Reid coached for the last 13 years. The Chiefs are only 1-4 ATS in their last 4 games against Philadelphia but they are coming off back-to-back ATS wins against NFC East teams.
Key NFL Betting matchups of 2013 NFL Season:
Week 2 vs. Dallas Cowboys: the Chiefs are 2-0 ATS in their last 2 meetings against Dallas.
Week 7 vs. Houston Texans: the Chiefs have won against the spread in 2 of their last 3 games against Houston.

– Whether the arrival of Andy Reid and Alex Smith can make this team more competitive next season.
