Last week a person at the Grand Sierra in Reno wagered $400 at 500-1 odds that the Kansas City Chiefs would win the Super Bowl. At that time, the Chiefs were 0-3 and that person’s undeniable optimism would have been defined as genuine "chutzpah," $200,000 worth.
One week later, the Chiefs are now 1-3 after defeating the winless Minnesota Vikings. That said, we have not heard of a rush to the windows for futures bets on the Chiefs.
Through three games, KC was outscored 129-27. This week the Chiefs are 2-point underdogs at Indianapolis, which has a short week coming off the Monday nighter with Tampa Bay.
Taking the "glass half full" instead of "half-empty" view, KC could be 2-2 heading to the bye week. However, the next home game at Arrowhead is not until Oct. 31.
