If you didn't see the Kansas City Chiefs' 11-win effort coming last season, you weren't paying attention to what happened in the previous season. They solidified their stance as one of the NFL's best two way teams and most consistent weekly betting options. It all starts with quarterback Alex Smith, who remains one of the most underrated arms in the game. He isn't the big time playmaker that Tom Brady or Andrew Luck is, but he's a solid game manager. He completes a ridiculous percentage of passes and limits the amount of turnovers.

How To Win At Kansas City Chiefs Betting
On the weekly betting front, view the Kansas City Chiefs as strong under wagers unless they prove otherwise.
There are two reasons why you should use them as consistent under gambles.
First and foremost, their defense is strong. They ranked seventh in points allowed per game last season and weren't bleeding players over the offseason. The Chiefs only allowed 19.4 points per game.
Second, and perhaps most importantly, the Chiefs offense is efficient, not potent. There is a difference.
Head coach Andy Reid prefers to burn the clock. He has Alex Smith manage the game with an above average number of handoffs and short yardage throws. The Chiefs like to control the possession time every game, and this is a great way of doing it.
Most of their offensive drives, regardless of whether they end in a touchdown or field goal, take ample time off the game clock. That limits the number of possessions for both teams, thus driving down the total score.
Pair this offensive play style with the Chiefs' defense, and you have one of the most dependable under plays in the NFL.
Big picture futures are anything but sure bets. Still, you need to play them for lucrative returns, and there are only a handful of teams worth using as division, conference and Super Bowl plays.
The Raiders are probably better suited to win the AFC West in 2017, though.
The Chiefs are probably less likely to win the AFC than they were in 2016. They are still a good long shot pick but the likelihood of them coming out of the AFC is minimal.
The Chiefs, like the Raiders, won six games both at home and on the road. It doesn't matter where this team plays, as their possession game is a perfect way to quiet an away crowd. One of the most impressive thing about this team is how the Chiefs performed against fellow AFC West teams in 2016.
The Chiefs went a perfect 6-0 against AFC West teams. You cannot overstate how amazing a record that is. Playing in Denver and Oakland is no easy task, yet they walked away from both hostile environments with wins. We can't see this trend continuing in 2017. However, if it does look for the Chiefs to make a deeper run in the playoffs.
