With NHL free agency now in full swing, we are at the point of the year when the odds for every team in the league begin to shift, sometimes quite dramatically. The biggest changes come with the teams that make a massive splash in free agency, which is why the Tampa Bay Buccaneers suddenly became the biggest mover and shaker on the board when they landed Tom Brady. As free agency continues and we head toward the draft, the odds will continue to move, so it’s good to pay attention to the changes so that you know when you should make your wagers to win divisions or the Super Bowl. After 1 week of free agency, let’s take a look at what the defending champion Kansas City Chiefs are up to. Here’s an overview of the Kansas City Chiefs and their NFL Odds as it stands.
Kansas City Chiefs Odds After Free Agency Week 1
Player Movement and Possible Future Moves
It was always going to be a busy offseason for the Chiefs, as they knew that they had no less than 19 different players set to become unrestricted free agents. The Chiefs have already made some moves, but given that there are still deals to be made and potential holes to be filled, we have probably not yet seen the last of the movement in and out of Kansas City.
The Chiefs had a pair of cornerbacks set to hit free agency, with one of them already on the move to another team. Bashaud Breeland is still with the Chiefs and looking for a big payday, while Kendall Fuller is now with the Washington Redskins. Another big loss for the Chiefs is pass rusher Emmanuel Ogbah, who will be in Miami with the Dolphins last season. Ogbah was a bit of a fan favorite, so that loss stings a little.
One the offensive side of things, Stefan Wisniewski is also gone, heading to his hometown of Pittsburgh, but the Chiefs were quick to fill that hole, landing the services of veteran offensive lineman Mike Remmers. Job #1 for the Chiefs is to protect Patrick Mahomes, so Remmers should be able to help with that. As far as backup QB’s go, the Chiefs have given a new contract to Chad Henne, while also making it clear that they will be cutting ties with Matt Moore, who might well end up as the backup for the New York Giants.
Also, on the offensive side of things, LeSean McCoy is still a Chief for now, but he will not be that way for much longer, as the KC brass have made it clear that they will be moving on from him. Xavier Williams is another player that will not be in KC tis coming season, with the remaining free agents still up n the air at the moment.
The Kansas City Chiefs Odds to Win the Super Bowl
The Kansas City Chiefs hit the board as the favorites to win the upcoming Super Bowl and that has not changed. As long as they keep Mahomes and their key personnel, the Chiefs are once again going to be the team to beat this season. They are currently in at +500 to win it all.
