Hot On Both Sides Of The Ball
Many might be surprised that the Chiefs are as hot as they are considering they got off to a slow 2-3 start to the season. The Chiefs offense has been a top-10 offense in the league over the last five seasons and this season has been no different.
The Chiefs are seventh in points per game as they average 27.5 ppg, third in passing yards (287.4 pypg), and third in total yards per game (397.2 ypg).
As for their defense, they have only been in the top 10 in points allowed two times over the last five years. The last time they finished the season in the top-10 in points allowed in 2019, they won the Super Bowl.
The Chiefs defense is letting up 21.1 ppg, their secondary is tied for fifth in interceptions (14), third in interceptions for a touchdown (2), and in the top-15 in interception yards (160). The secondary is not the only part of the defense that has thrived as they are third in the league in forced fumbles (16), second in fumbles recovered (11), and tied for second in fumbles recovered for a touchdown (1).
With the Chiefs taking down anyone in their path at will, a bet on them to win the Super Bowl sooner rather than later could be one of the smartest bets to make. $100 on the Chiefs would profit $500.
