The Kansas City Chiefs suffered another loss at the hand of the Cincinnati Bengals in Week 13 and will be in full bounce-back mode against the Denver Broncos in Week 14. Despite the loss, the Chiefs are still a front-runner to win the Super Bowl and are heavily favored in this game. The Broncos haven’t won since October and will be hard-pressed to keep this game within two touchdowns.
Let’s check the latest NFL odds, stats, injury reports, and NFL lines for Chiefs vs Broncos. We’ve plenty of Vegas NFL odds and NFL week 14 picks for you to consider.
Chiefs vs Broncos Betting Lines
Chiefs Primed for Bounce-Back
The Chiefs suffered a rare loss in Week 13 in what is becoming a worrying trend whenever they face the Cincinnati Bengals. It was the Chiefs’ first loss since the end of October and likely served as a wake-up call to this team.
With the Bengals potentially standing in the Chiefs’ way of a title run, KC has to figure out its defense and make other adjustments to beat Cincy.
This is a phenomenal matchup to work out the defensive kinks for the Chiefs. While there are many, the Broncos do not have the offensive skill to capitalize on any level.
While the Chiefs are winning a ton straight-up, their return on investment (ROI) against the spread (ATS) is among the bottom third of the NFL (-21.05). On the road, that figure improves drastically to a nearly profitable 5.26%.
Even with a decent ROI on the road, the Chiefs are 0-3 ATS in the last three weeks and have yet to cover a double-digit spread in 2022.

Broncos Don’t Fail to Fail
The Broncos continue to find new and unique ways to lose games week to week. In Week 13, the 3-9 Broncos lost to the Baltimore Ravens when backup quarterback Tyler Huntley tossed a game-winning TD with 28 seconds left.
Denver led the entire game up until that point.
On the bright side, it was the first time the Broncos covered a spread since the end of October. But that is where the good news ends. Denver enters Week 14 with a 1-3 ATS record in their last four games and with the NFL’s third-worst (ROI) against the spread (37.08%).
Last week’s loss to the Ravens was the largest spread the Broncos have seen this season (+8.5). While they did cover, it’s important to remember it happened against Baltimore’s backup QB.
With Denver’s horrifically bad offense, we don’t hold out much hope for them to turn things around against a Super Bowl favorite.

Chiefs vs Broncos Picks & Prediction
Predicted Score: Chiefs 23, Broncos 20
- Worth Betting on the Moneyline?
No. The only value is on the Broncos to win outright, but we don’t foresee that outcome coming to be.
- Worth Betting ATS?
Yes. Despite the Chiefs’ rocky ATS record, we feel good about them bucking that trend in Week 14. They are motivated, coming off a loss, and will take out that frustration on Denver.
- Worth Betting on the Totals?
Yes. Because the Broncos’ offense is so bad, they have only played one game in their previous 11 that went over the total. Denver’s defense is top-three in the NFL and should be able to keep Mahomes and Kelce from running up the score.
