“Eleven-to-one for the Chiefs, sitting at 3-4, the place they’d doubtless be a considerable underdog, or not less than they need to be for those who take a look at their schedule arising,” Clay mentioned. “They need to beat the Giants, then they’ve bought three actually robust video games. I believe the possibilities of them successful their division are literally fairly low. It’s like folks received’t give up on the Chiefs.”
So, are they still overvalued at 11-1?
“I might guess them at 11-1 so far as the Lombardi Trophy is worried,” Fuhrman answered. “Clearly there are larger points that they should repair — the offense urgent within the wake of a few of their defensive shortcomings, the offensive line that hasn’t come collectively as rapidly as plenty of Chiefs followers and the group believed it may … with so many contemporary faces, I don’t assume it’s so simple as waving a magic wand.
“However there’s no incentive for the books to drop Kansas Metropolis quickly down. As a result of in the event that they had been to go to 20-, 25-, perhaps 30-1, the legal responsibility in going to a Patrick Mahomes-led crew with Andy Reid on the sideline would ratchet up fairly rapidly. So somewhat than discarding them, you might even see them inch down steadily.”
However even Fuhrman has his doubts.
“I’d most likely be more inclined to bet them to overlook the playoffs than I might be to take the 11-1 (and decide them to win the Tremendous Bowl,” he concluded.
