The Chiefs' full 2024-25 schedule has officially been released and there are tons of exciting games to look forward to, ranging from AFC West showdowns to primetime matchups against contenders and beyond.

Sportsbooks expect another dominant season from Patrick Mahomes and Kansas City, with the Chiefs being favored in 15 of the 17 games as of this writing.

We've already looked at games the Chiefs need to win at all costs, but what about some easy wins too? Despite the difficult schedule overall and tough start, there are still some seemingly guaranteed victories ahead to look forward to.

3 Guaranteed Wins on Chiefs' Schedule

1. Week 8 - @ Las Vegas Raiders, Oct. 27, 3:25 PM

Patrick Mahomes has famously never lost in Vegas after winning the Super Bowl at Allegiant Stadium. The Chiefs will want revenge after falling to the Raiders on Christmas Day and this represents the perfect spot for vengeance.

Las Vegas is still in a rebuilding mode with either Gardner Minshew or Aiden O'Connell expected to be under center. Kansas City will be coming off a tough matchup with the 49ers, though they'll have a full week of rest and have their bye week prior to the San Francisco contest.

Considering how hard the opening stages of the schedule is, this will be the easiest game of the first two months for the Chiefs.

Chiefs players and coaches would be the first to tell you that last year's Christmas Day loss was an embarrassment. The team didn't look focused and I believe they'll correct those mistakes against the Raiders this year. Kansas City had six straight wins over Vegas prior to this loss, so they'll want to get a new winning streak going.

Betting odds at DraftKings Sportsbook have the Chiefs favored by five and I think we'll see a victory by at least a touchdown.

With how good this defense should be, along with an improved offense, there's no excuse for Kansas City in this one. This could represent the return of DE Charles Omenihu as well, giving the Chiefs even more firepower to punish the Raiders with.
