2018 Kansas City Chiefs NFL Betting Odds and Schedule
Gambling sites for NFL are not too sweet on the Kansas City Chiefs. Could that have something to do with the end of the Alex Smith era? Which is also the start of the Patrick Mahomes era. Fellow NFL players may have snubbed Smith from the top 100. However, that doesn’t change the fact that you can mention Smith’s name in the same breath as Tom Brady and Russell Wilson. Smith may not have as long as arm as those two. Still, only Brady and Wilson won more games than Smith during the latter’s five seasons in Kansas.
All good things come to an end, though. On March 14, Kansas traded Smith to the Redskins in exchange for a 3rd round pick in the 2018 NFL Draft. Last season, in Week 17 and with a playoff berth secured, head coach Andy Reid rested Smith and gave Mahomes his first professional start. With Smith out of the picture, Mahomes will, barring any unforeseen event, land the gig permanently.

Common wisdom says don’t count your chickens before they come home to roost. Notwithstanding that, Chiefs outside linebacker Tamba Hali is already in awe of Mahomes. “You’re going to get a complete player,” Hali said. “I mean, he’s a smart player. He can throw the ball. Athletically, he’s gifted. You don’t have to coach it. I don’t want to hype him, but I compare him to Brett Favre.” You mean that guy at the end of There’s Something About Mary? Seriously though. Hali is not the first to see the resemblance. Nonetheless, gambling sites for NFL don’t seem to see it.
