The Kansas City Chiefs are coming off another Super Bowl win. Despite Travis Kelce claiming that everyone was writing of the team, they finished with a 14-3 record and won the AFC West. They did have a bad loss to the Indianapolis Colts, but I doubt they are complaining too much after hoisting the Lombardi Trophy.

The Chiefs have some decisions to make this offseason. Left tackle Orlando Brown has already played under the franchise tag and logged 98.4% of offensive snaps this past season. Right tackle Andrew Wylie, S Juan Thornhill and WR JuJu Smith-Schuster are also all set to become free agents.

Kansas City is the favorite to win the AFC West at DraftKings Sportsbook with -120 odds. They have the best odds to win the AFC at +350 and Super Bowl 58 at +600.
