How to Bet on the Chargers-Chiefs Odds
Moneyline: This method is for betting on which contender outright wins the match. The team considered the favorite has odds denoted with a minus (-) sign, while the underdog’s odds have a plus (+) sign.
Let us take the following NFL teams as a moneyline example:
- Arizona Cardinals -269
- Philadelphia Eagles +241
Placing a $269 bet on the Cardinals will earn you $100 if the Cards win the game. If you choose the Eagles instead, a $100 stake will give you $241 if the Eagles win.
Point spread: In this betting method, you predict how many points a team has to score over the other for your bet to win.
Below is a sample betting line showing point spread odds:
- Tennessee Titans -2.5
- Pittsburgh Steelers +2.5
If you bet on the Titans, the team must win by three points or more over the Steelers. If you bet on the Steelers, they must either win the game straight up or lose by two points or fewer.
Over/under: The O/U is a bet against a predetermined score set by oddsmakers. Bettors predict whether the combined score of both teams will be over or under the predetermined score.
For example, a New York Giants vs. Los Angeles Rams game has an O/U of 49.5. If you place an “over” bet, the combined score must be 50 points or higher for you to win. If you bet “under,” the score has to be 49 points or fewer.
Prop bets: Bettors may bet on specific milestones that may or may not be connected to a game’s final outcome. Examples of prop bets are:
- Will the Chiefs head coach Andy Reid wear a red jacket during their first match?
- Will the Green Bay Packers quarterback Aaron Rodgers achieve 5,000 passing yards for the first time in the next regular season?
- Will the Chargers surpass their last season’s total interceptions in the next NFL season?
