KANSAS CITY, Mo. — The Kansas City Chiefs enter the bye week with a 5-2 record and sole possession of the lead in the AFC West and odds-makers have gone back and forth on a betting odds for the end of the season.

For starters, though the Chiefs were favorites to win the division at the beginning of the season, the margin was much smaller due to the belief that the division would be much more competitive with all the additions to Kansas City’s rivals.

Right now, the Chiefs are two games ahead of the second place Los Angeles Chargers. DraftKings gives KC -450 odds to win the division.

  • Chiefs: -450
  • Chargers: +500
  • Raiders: +1400
  • Broncos: +3000

Kansas City’s performance this season has earned them the second-best odds to win the AFC, behind only the Buffalo Bills.

  • Bills: -120
  • Chiefs: +350
  • Ravens: +900
  • Bengals: +1200

Subsequently, it gives the Chiefs the third-best odds to win Super Bowl LVII, trailing the Bills and the Philadelphia Eagles.

  • Bills: +250
  • Eagles: +500
  • Chiefs: +700
  • 49ers: +1500

Quarterback Patrick Mahomes leads the league in passing yards (2,159), passing touchdowns (20) and passer rating (109.5) through seven games and his play has made him a favorite for end-of-the-season passing totals.
