Welcome to The Bet Club NFL Kansas City Chiefs betting guide for 2023.

The Kansas City Chiefs’ recent victory in Super Bowl LVII and their status as favorites for Super Bowl LVIII in the upcoming 2023 NFL season are well-founded. With Patrick Mahomes at quarterback and key players like Travis Kelce returning, alongside the continued leadership of head coach Andy Reid, the core of the Chiefs remains solid and competitive.

Kansas City Chiefs 2022 season recap

During the regular season, the Chiefs didn’t exhibit dominance despite their impressive 14-3 record. They often appeared to toy with lesser opponents and struggled to cover the spread, posting a 5-11-1 ATS record. However, what stood out was their ability to win close games, which served them well in the playoffs.

Kansas City’s knack for coming out on top in tight contests became especially valuable in the postseason. They narrowly defeated Jacksonville 27-20 in the divisional round, secured a close 23-20 victory over Cincinnati in the AFC Championship, and ultimately triumphed over Philadelphia in the Super Bowl with a hard-fought 38-35 win. This demonstrated their resilience and ability to perform under pressure when it mattered most.

Kansas City Chiefs 2023 NFL season predictions

As the odds suggest, Kansas City is poised to be one of the top, if not the top, teams in the NFL. With Mahomes orchestrating the offense and Reid leading from the sidelines, it’s almost a given that this franchise will remain a contender year in and year out. Given the roster’s resemblance to those of previous years, there’s no compelling reason to anticipate a decline for the Chiefs in the 2023 season.

With that in mind, here are a couple of our predictions related to Kansas City for the upcoming season.

Best bet: Kansas City Chiefs Over 11.5 wins (-140)

The Chiefs going over 11.5 wins at a price of -140 appears to offer excellent value. With the NFL now featuring 18 weeks and 17 games per team in a season, expecting the cream of the crop to secure at least 12 victories doesn’t seem overly demanding. A 12-5 record is undeniably strong, but not an extraordinary feat. Remarkably, Kansas City has achieved the 12-win mark in five consecutive seasons (including three with just 16 games) and in six of the last seven seasons.

Analyzing their schedule, the Chiefs’ road matchups appear favorable, with key games against the Bengals, Bills, and Eagles all being played at home. Given their historical performance and the schedule outlook, it’s reasonable to anticipate that they will surpass the 11.5-win threshold, likely with some margin to spare.

Kansas City Chiefs season record predictions

Agreeing that the over is a favorable option for the Chiefs this season, targeting a record of 13-4 at +500 odds indeed appears to be a savvy move. While the defending Super Bowl champions might have the potential to reach a record of 14-3 or even better, the smart play seems to be a prediction of 13-4.

The Chiefs’ schedule does present some challenging matchups, and if they secure the AFC West title and their playoff seeding early in the regular season, there’s a possibility they might rest key starters, including Mahomes, in the later games. In such a scenario, achieving a 13-4 record seems both feasible and strategic. Betting on this outcome at +500 odds could yield a nice return if things play out as anticipated.
