The Kansas City Chiefs have fallen on hard times in recent NFL betting seasons. Now the franchise is hoping that the addition of head coach Andy Reid will help turn things around and get them back to where they want to be. Originally founded in 1960 as the Dallas Texans’ franchise by owner Lamar Hunt, the team moved to Kansas City three years later and became the Chiefs of the AFL. The AFL-NFL merger in 1970 included the Kansas City Chiefs, but it also turned the page on a team that had enjoyed some success prior to the changes. Kansas City had won the AFL Championship on three occasions from 1962-69, including the fourth AFL-NFL Super Bowl championship in 1969. However, following the complete merger under the NFL banner the Chiefs have yet to even get back to the Super Bowl, a sports betting plight that Reid will be tasked with helping to turn around.
The Chiefs are still valued at around $1 billion by Forbes magazine, even though the glory days of the Betonline franchise are well in the past. Kansas City was just the second team after the New York Jets to defeat an NFL franchise and win the Super Bowl, but that victory on January 7, 1970 remains the team’s last championship victory. The second team to appear in more than one Super Bowl after the Green Bay Packers, and the first team to appear in the championship game in two different decades still hasn’t made it back there, and now it’s Reid who will be responsible for turning things around for the franchise.
