Kansas City Chiefs vs Los Angeles Rams Predictions
Key Stat: Chiefs find their form and return to the Super Bowl
- The Kansas City Chiefs run in the AFC continues with a trip to the Super Bowl
- Patrick Mahomes continues MVP form
- Chiefs defense improves and they get off to a quick start during season
With the NFL season right around the corner, we have been sharing our Futures predictions for the 2022 season. We are now picking the Super Bowl winner for the upcoming season. The Kansas City Chiefs are picked to be one of the elite teams this year, but with such a big overhaul to their roster in the offseason, many prognosticators are unsure what to think of the Chiefs Super Bowl hopes.
The biggest off-season loss for Kansas City was losing Tyreek Hill to the Miami Dolphins. Hill was the Chief’s most dangerous receiver, and his explosive plays will be hard to replicate. The Chiefs added plenty of offensive targets to try and replace Hill. Ju-Ju Smith Schuster and Marquez Valdez-Scantling are free agent pickups, and we think they will make the Chiefs offense even more dangerous than in years past. Patrick Mahomes will have so many targets that he won’t need to focus on one receiver, making the receiving core tougher to cover. Kansas City will still have their All-Pro tight end Travis Kelce as an offensive target as well.
Defensively the Chiefs added Justin Reid at safety to replace veteran Tyrann Mathieu. They also drafted George Karlaftis at defensive end, who they are counting on to make an impact this season. The AFC is extremely tough this year, with a legitimate 6 teams with a strong chance to get to the super bowl. However, we think Patrick Mahomes retains his MVP form, and Andy Reid helps the offense become the force it was a couple of years ago. We are taking the Kansas City Chiefs to reach the Super Bowl.
Key Stat: Chiefs defeat the Rams in the Super Bowl
- Chiefs new look receiving core becomes more effective
- Kansas City has a revamped defense that improves
- Los Angeles Rams defense isn’t as dominant
The last futures bet we are looking at is the winner of the Super Bowl. We are predicting a Kansas City Chiefs vs Los Angeles Rams Super Bowl. Kansas City regains its effectiveness on offense with new wide receiving weapons in Schuster and Scantling. Mahomes can attack the Rams defense and outscore the L.A. offense.
Los Angeles will feel the loss of Von Miller, Robert Woods, and Andrew Whitworth. Von Miller was the perfect compliment to Aaron Donald, but without Miller, offensive lines will be able to focus more on Donald to limit his effectiveness. Patrick Mahomes will develop chemistry with his new receivers and should be as dangerous as ever by the time of the Super Bowl.
Kansas City is coming into the season with the third-best odds to win the Super Bowl this year. The value for Kansas City is as high as +1100 to win the championship, and we think it’s the best bet in the league. We are taking the Kansas City Chiefs to be your Super Bowl champs for the upcoming NFL season.
