Chiefs vs. Broncos odds: Kansas City huge underdog for finale

The Kansas City Chiefs aren't expected to win -- or really compete -- by oddsmakers.

The Denver Broncos are still playing for home-field advantage, which is bad news to the Kansas City Chiefs. The two teams close their regular seasons against each other on Sunday, and all that's left to decide for the Chiefs is whether or not they'll lock up the No. 1 pick in the NFL Draft with a loss.

Suffice it to say, Vegas thinks they'll lose. The Chiefs have opened as a 16-point underdog, a line that's moved to as high as 17 on some sites. The over-under is around 42.5.

The seasons for these two teams couldn't be much more diametrically opposed. The Chiefs (2-13) actually had playoff aspirations coming into the season, but an unsettled (to be kind) quarterback situation was just one reason why their offense and their season never took off. Meanwhile, AFC West rival Denver (12-3) has thrived under first-year quarterback Peyton Manning and is looking for a win and a Houston Texans loss to get home-field advantage throughout the AFC playoffs.

Sunday's game kicks off at 3:15 p.m. CT and will be televised by CBS.
