Kansas City Chiefs vs Jacksonville Jaguars Odds

2-14TEAM RECORD2-14

The Kansas City Chiefs make their debut under new head coach Andy Reid when they pay a visit on the Jacksonville Jaguars Sunday afternoon (1 pm ET, CBS).

With a week to go before kick-off the Chiefs, who hit bottom last year by going 2-14, were favored by four points over the home-dog Jags, who also happened to go 2-14 last season and are also playing their first game under their new head coach, former Seattle assistant Gus Bradley.

While many observers predict the Jaguars will be terrible, they have been a great bet in Week 1 (12-2 ATS past 14 season openers). When they open at home, they are on an 8-1 ATS run.

The Chiefs are 1-7 ATS as chalk and have not been a road favorite since 2010.
