    Team Outlook and Scouting Report

    SEASON FORECASTS AND FUTURES PICKS

    The Chiefs were a neutral zone infraction away from going to the Super Bowl and acquired Frank Clark to help shore up the defense. The Chargers are without Derwin James for most of the season. Motivation and talent carries them to a Top 2 seed in the AFC and they are our Super Bowl favorite. Oddsmakers and our simulation say Chiefs have the best chance to win the Super Bowl (6/1, 14.3%). Even with the juice, the Chiefs are a good betting value. Their 18.2% chance to win the Super Bowl (based on simulations) is #1 in the league. They are also a good bet to win the AFC at 11/4, 26.7%. Their sim chance is 29.2%. The Chiefs are averaging 10.9 wins per sim which makes them a decent bet to win over 10.5 games. At -500 the Chiefs are a good value to make the playoffs with a 87.1% chance. Their odds of winning their division are 1/2, 66.7%. They win the division in 60.8% of simulations. Their average wins per simulation puts them at #2 in the AFC.
