Skip to comments.Chiefs Are 20.5-Point Betting Favorites Over Jets, One Of 10 Biggest NFL Spreads Since 1976

The phrase any given Sunday was coined by Bert Bell, who served as NFL commissioner in the 1940s and 1950s, and immortalized in a 1999 Oliver Stone movie by the same name. It represents the idea that any pro football team could beat another team, even as a big underdog. But Sundays matchup between the defending Super Bowl champion Kansas City Chiefs and 0-7 New York Jets puts the cliché to the test. The Jets opened Monday as 20.5-point underdogs, the tenth-biggest spread since at least 1976, according to sports betting outlet TheLines.com.

So were the colts in the 69 super bowl. We know how that ended.
Does anyone know how it can be that Adam Gase is still employed as a head coach? If you do, please explain it to me!
take the Chiefs and lay the points...could be and should be the last game Adam Gase is a head coach in the NFL.
From what I heard the Jets owner Woody Johnson being US Ambassador in London has delayed major decision concerning staff.
I thought that was an 18 point spread in 1969?
Must be sleeping with the owner!
There’s always rugby.
I was out in vegas about five years ago and took the saints at -16.5 ...I think it was. They covered but what was I thinking? I never lay more than -6.5 in pro and am usually taking the points (on the house side). Haven’t been betting this season much really.
The thing is that Mahomes is so good that all of Reid's flaws, which he still has, don't come into play as much.
I still say that I'd take the 20 points and bet J-E-T-S Jets Jets Jets.
Always nice to see people who successfully overcame anorexia.
depended on the book where you lived. Near NYC it was about 17.5. Elsewhere it was close to 20. I think LV had it at 19 or so. Get this, my dad bet the Jets straight up!
He laughed for a month while saying never doubt Broadway Joe. Biggest upset since Clay beat Liston.
He forgot to put sun screen on the face.
This is why the left always, always, eventually wins. Our side has real conviction for about 12 hours. Then it’s back to normal, intaking regular infusions of leftist propaganda and continued support of far left businesses and programming. Our side is so pathetically weak.
I would put $10 on the Jets and take the points. If you want to have some fun bet on a college game underdog that is supposed to be beaten by 38 to 40 points. Take Slippery Rock plus the points.
The Andy Reid you speak of no longer exists. Go Chiefs!!!
Does he have to buy two tickets?
What is this “NFL”?
