In advance of their Divisional Round matchup with the Cleveland Browns, the Kansas City Chiefs have attracted 46% of the bets and 54% of the money thus far. (oddsFire)

Betting Impact:

The Chiefs are -9.5 point home favorites over the Browns, per BettingPros consensus odds. This line is back exactly where it first opened earlier in the week, despite spending the majority of the week at Kansas City -10. It is interesting to see the Browns as such a public 'dog, but bettors are clearly impressed with the way they manhandled Pittsburgh last week. This type of betting split is an oddsmaker's dream, as there does not appear to be any real liability with either side covering the spread. However, oddsmakers will likely still be rooting for the Browns to cover or even win outright considering how many teasers, parlays, and straight up moneyline bets there are on Kansas City.
