Kansas City Chiefs are the outright favourites to win this season’s Super Bowl, with the team heading the betting market after being widely considered to have the best NFL squad this season. Andy Reid’s team were the top-ranked outfit in the AFC Championship play-offs last term and navigated their way through to the 2020 Super Bowl before being soundly beaten by Tampa Bay Buccaneers.

However, Kansas could potentially go one better this season, with the team having overcome Cleveland at the Arrowhead Stadium en route to the big showdown. This was an exciting 22-17 win and the bookies anticipate another close match when the teams meet in this NFL opener, although they give the visitors the edge.

We think that it could be defences on top in this clash, with the points line looking a touch too high on the basis that only 39 points were scored collectively when they last met, with this being a better alternative to punting Kansas in a parlay where they might end up playing a close match.

Cleveland won eleven of their sixteen games in the AFC North last season and they are viable contenders this time around. The bookies think they could easily get to the post-season bracket and compete hard at the latter stages themselves.
