The Chiefs are a Blue Chip Stock

Apple, Amazon, Disney, and the Kansas City Chiefs.

With Patrick Mahomes’s new ten year extension on top of the two years left on his rookie deal, the Chiefs just guaranteed 12 more years of winning football in Kansas City. While us here at The Back Judge try and provide you with the angle that the usual media members don’t see, there’s not another angle here. Andy Reid is an elite coach, and Patrick Mahomes is the league’s best quarterback. End of discussion.

If you ever thought to yourself “man I should have just bet the Patriots to win the AFC East every year they had Tom Brady”, here’s your phone a friend. While the Chiefs will never yield high returns, any bet placed on them while Mahomes is their QB is a safe one.

Per FoxBet, the Chiefs win total for 2020 is at 11.5. The Chiefs won 12 games last year, even with Mahomes missing 2 games. With the over comes a -120 kicker, with the final math being a bet of $100 gets you a net return of $83. While getting bigger returns will require betting a higher volume, sometimes it’s worth it to put money into a thoroughbred.

Say Less.

The Raiders, Chargers, and Broncos all have potential to be frisky next year, but none of their rosters can compete with the talent and pedigree the Chiefs have. The AFC West is the Chiefs’ to lose.

I know I used my last post to encourage betting on the 2-14 Bengals to win 6 games in 2020, and I still stand by that. But for every $1 you invest in blockchain, you should invest $5 more in Amazon, ain’t that right Murray brothers?

Cleveland Browns Sign Woman Kicker Kareem Hunt

In November, TMZ released security footage of Kareem Hunt kicking a woman in a Cleveland hotel in the 2018 off-season. The Chiefs promptly released him, and Hunt spent the rest of the NFL season at home on the couch.

There was an immediate ESPN sit-down interview, which Hunt and his management team clearly were ill-prepared for. He wavered on whether he had or hadn’t started counseling, and just generally didn’t come off as remorseful.

Now Hunt has signed with the Browns, and the Kansas City connection remains with now Browns GM John Dorsey being the one who drafted Hunt in 2017. Hunt is still on the commissioner’s exempt list and faces at minimum a 6-game suspension from the NFL, but I’d like to see him get upwards of 8-10.

Hunt is a supremely talented player and paired with rookie standout Nick Chubb the Browns now have the best backfield duo on paper in the NFL. Freddie Kitchens got pretty creative with his running back formations last year when he became the OC, and now he has an extra car in the garage to play around with.

Hunt signing with the Browns only hurts the ever-growing rap-sheet of NFL teams not caring about their players hitting women. Only Hunt knows whether he’s remorseful or not. Even if he is remorseful, it’s debatable if he deserves a second chance.

Ultimately, I think it’s possible to win Super Bowls in the NFL without signing or keeping players who physically hurt women.
