The Chiefs have made some changes this offseason. They have added a new coach in Andy Reid, and he is one of the most respected coaches in the game. On top of that, they have added a new QB in Alex Smith. Both coaching and quarterbacking was a problem last year, so the Chiefs figure to be improved over the next few years. So how will this impact you as a bettor? Are the Chiefs going to be a force or are they going to be the same old Chiefs?
The truth is that the Chiefs are likely to come into next season underrated. They lost a lot of games last year, but that team has a lot of talent. It was not long ago that they were a league average club. If they draft well this spring, they might go into the next year as a team poised for a nice run. You can probably make some good money betting the Chiefs over the first few weeks of the season.
You should watch very closely to see how the media perceives this team. If ESPN and the other talking heads are pumping this team in a big way, then there is a good chance that they won’t be a good value. It is up to you determine where the public perception is going to be. If the public jumps on the Chiefs, then the value will go away in a hurry. But if they fly under the radar, then you might have some good opportunities to bet the Chiefs early next year.
