Kansas City Chiefs vs Detroit Lions Odds

0-1TEAM RECORD1-0

How bad was Kansas City's Week 1 home loss against the Bills?

Bad enough that oddsmakers opened them as double-digit road underdogs and get this - against Detroit.

So one week after losing 41-7 to the team many felt would be the worst in the league, they are 10-point underdogs at perennial doormat Detroit, a team that eked out a win at Tampa Bay last time out.
