The Kansas City Chiefs quest for playoff glory begins on Saturday, January 4th when they face the Indianapolis Colts at Lucas Oil Stadium. Andy Reid's squad is listed as a slight +2 against the spread underdog in the game, which explains, in part, Kansas City's long 2014 Super Bowl Odds. Other than their division rival San Diego, the Chiefs are considered the least likely Lombardi Trophy winner in this year's playoff field with a +3200 Super Bowl money line listing ($100 wins $3200).
Kansas City, which owns the fifth seed in the AFC Playoffs, certainly faces a tough road to New York. Should the Chiefs, who finished the regular season with an 11-5 record after Sunday's overtime loss to the Chargers, find their way past the Colts, they will, in all probability (if Cincinnati beats San Diego), earn a meeting with the AFC's top seed, Denver, at Mile High. The Broncos defeated the Chiefs twice in the regular season, and they topped them 17-27 in Denver.
In the event Kansas City defeats Indianapolis and does, indeed, meet and knock off Denver, it would then face either the Bengals in Cincinnati or the Patriots in New England (again, this is all predicated on Cincy topping San Diego in the Wild Card round). Consider that those two teams were a combined 16-0 at home this year, and the Chiefs +1600 AFC Championship Odds make even more sense.
Kansas City Chiefs 2014 Super Bowl Odds:
To beat the Indianapolis Colts in Saturday's Wild Card Playoff Game +100
To Win the 2014 AFC Championship Game +1600 (five of six)
To Win Super Bowl XLVIII +3200 (11 of 12)
