The latest odds are available to wager on for the AFC. The Kansas City Chiefs are looking for their third consecutive appearance in the Super Bowl.

However, they have plenty of work ahead of them before they get the opportunity to play for the Super Bowl. The Patriots were recently the favorite to win the AFC and represent the conference in the Super Bowl.

Here are all the latest odds for the Chiefs entering Week 15 of the NFL season.

AFC Championship Odds

We have a new sheriff in town, and the Chiefs may not be looking back. Many did not notice the Patriots’ odds to win the AFC have been among the top few favorites for a month.

They have been the favorites for the past few weeks at SportsBetting.ag and a few other outlets.

+240 +260 +650 +850

The Chiefs have had their odds shorten a little bit since Week 8. Every week they have improved, but the value has worsened. The more victories they have piled up, the more inclined betters look elsewhere.

We could see juice involved once the playoffs begin. There is only one team (like last) to have a bye week. The top seed earns a trip to the Divisional Round.

A victory there would put them in the AFC Championship matchup. Whoever gets the top seed will benefit with an extra week of rest on top of home-field advantage.

AFC West Odds

The divisional odds have changed throughout the season. Kansas City has been the favorite for consensus sportsbooks since around Thanksgiving. The Chargers had a slight lead, but we have not seen Kansas City lose since Week 7 against the Titans.

The Chiefs have won six in a row and have turned the corner. They are one of the hottest teams in the league and have their eyes set on their sixth straight AFC West crown.

The Chiefs have caught fire, and they have a few vital games on the schedule. KC will see a few potential playoff teams on the slate. They will head on the road to face the Chargers on Thursday Night Football.

Avenging a loss earlier in the season will be on the minds of Kansas City. A sweep for Los Angeles could give them the division crown.

However, the Chiefs are the favorites and have the firepower on offense to go along with a surging defense.

Chiefs-250
Chargers+210
Broncos+2200
Raiders+15000

Super Bowl LVI Odds

The Chiefs are in the thick of things as they attempt to become the fourth team to reach three-straight Super Bowls.

  • Miami Dolphins: 1971-1973
  • Buffalo Bills: 1991-1994
  • New England Patriots: 2016-2018

The current odds have Kansas City near the top of the odds list. The Chiefs have been led by their defense as of late, allowing fewer than 18 points in six straight games.

Tyreek Hill has been a star for them over the years, and his numbers have been remarkable. Hill will have a chance to set career-highs in receptions, yards, and touchdowns. He has already hauled in 90 receptions, which is the most of his career.

Kansas City has the goods to contend with any team in football, especially if the opposition has to travel to Arrowhead Stadium. The Chiefs are only behind the Buccaneers, and they would love to get another crack from their debacle against them last year.
