Panthers-Chiefs odds: KC is a home underdog ... again

The Panthers are 2.5-point favorites.

Earlier this week I was looking at the Kansas City Chiefs 2012 schedule trying to figure out if the Chiefs would be favored in ANY remaining game. 1-10 teams aren't favored to win games often, I know. I thought the Panthers game might be the last shot to be a home favorite but unfortunately that's not the case.

The Panthers a 2.5-point favorite over the Chiefs on Sunday at Arrowhead Stadium.

After Carolina, the Chiefs go on the road to face the Browns and Raiders. I can't imagine they'll be a road favorite in any of those games.

After that, the Chiefs host the Colts at home. Barring an Andrew Luck injury, they'll be 'dogs in that game, too.

And then the season finale, in Denver, the Chiefs will be big underdogs as well.

So the Chiefs should, according to the oddsmakers, lose the rest of their games, which sets themselves up for the No. 1 pick. The way this season has gone, I expect blowout losses against Carolina, Cleveland and Oakland before keeping things close, but ultimately losing, to the Colts and Broncos.

That sound about right?
