Cold weather forecast bad news for Dolphins bettors against Chiefs in Kansas City

Meteorologists are forecasting the game-time temperature at Arrowhead Stadium to be right around zero degrees with wind gusts up to 30 mph that will make feels like temps even more chilly.

The Chiefs, who for years now have played deep into the winter months, seem to enjoy playing in the cold.
Theyve won nine of their past 10 games in Kansas City in which the temperature was less than 40 degrees.
