How To Profit On Kansas City Making SB56, But Losing

  • The Kansas City Chiefs have +350 odds to make the Super Bowl and lose.
  • They also are +180 to win the AFC Championship.
  • It could turn out to be more profitable to bet on them to win the AFC Championship and then bet on their opponent.

KANSAS CITY, Mo. – The Kansas City Chiefs are among the favorites to win the Super Bowl. However, those who don’t believe in them can find an alternative way to profit.

Betting On The Chiefs To Make The Super Bowl, Then Lose

The Chiefs are no stranger to making postseason runs over the last few years. They’ve made the Super Bowl in each of the last two years and have reached the AFC Championship in each of the last three.

Their proven success is likely why the team has such short odds on online gambling sites to win the AFC Championship.

AFC Conference 2021/22 – Champion Odds

  • Kansas City Chiefs +180
  • Tennessee Titans +300
  • Buffalo Bills +375
  • Cincinnati Bengals +800
  • New England Patriots +850
  • Las Vegas Raiders +2000
  • Pittsburgh Steelers +3000

Given that the NFC is so much stronger from top-to-bottom than the AFC, many bettors may believe the Chiefs can make the Super Bowl but lose it. Luckily enough, there are odds for it.

  • Yes +350

Whether or not this bet carries value will ultimately be determined by the opponent, but there are scenarios where each one is the better bet to make.

Where Is The Value?

It’s possible that betting on the Chiefs to win the AFC, then just bet on their opponent in the Super Bowl would bring more value than the +350 prop. However, it’s largely dependent on the opponent.

The line of the Chiefs opponent would need to be around +175 for it to make more sense, but considering NFL betting sites have favored the Green Bay Packers to be the team to make and win the Super Bowl, it’s unlikely.

The NFC is much deeper and loaded with more talent than the AFC and it’s tough to see either the Packers, Tampa Bay Buccaneers or Los Angeles Rams being +175 or longer on the moneyline against the Chiefs.

Barring a miracle run from one of the NFC teams with longer odds, it seems to make more sense to simply bet the +350 line rather than splitting it into two separate bets.
