Will the Kansas City Chiefs go over or under their win total in 2021?

The Chiefs are already better than they were last season and they made it to the Super Bowl.

The reigning AFC champions fell just short of repeating as Super Bowl champions last season, but they’ve already made a big effort to improve what was already an absolutely stacked roster.

We’ll take a look at the latest DraftKings Sportsbook lines and predict if the Chiefs can beat their 2021 win total. The odds below are as of May 24, 2021.

AFC North win totals

Kansas City Chiefs 12.5 (Over +123, Under -150)
Los Angeles Chargers 9 (Over -110, Under -110)
Denver Broncos 8.5 (Over -134, Under +110)
Las Vegas Raiders 7 (Over -115, Under -106)

Notable offseason moves

Kansas City added OG Joe Thuney, OT Orlando Brown (trade), OG Kyle Long, DT Jarran Reed, LB Nick Bolton (second-round pick), OL Creed Humphrey (second-round pick)

Kansas City Chiefs prediction:

The one fatal flaw in the Chiefs roster last season was on full display in the Super Bowl. Their offensive line was unable to give QB Patrick Mahomes any time to find open receivers or throw the ball. They were able to address that in a big way this offseason, shedding weak pieces on the line and bringing in players to provide an immediate upgrade. With an additional game on the schedule this season and for a team that already won 14 a year ago, I have no problems hammering the over here.
