Buffalo Bills See Big Action

Buffalo Bills Vs. Kansas City Chiefs Odds, Sunday, October 10, 8:20 PM ET, NBC

  • Moneyline: Chiefs -145, Bills +125
  • Spread: Chiefs -3.0
  • Totals: O/U 56.5

Of the total bets on this big matchup, the Bills have been getting 83% of the wagers. While this is not uncommon for an underdog team to see a lot of action by sports bettors looking to cash in, the real story is the betting handle.

Wagers on this game have 74% of the total money being placed on the Bills. This means that the bigger bets, or the sharp money, are leaning in favor of Buffalo.

More hardcore betting fans believe the Bills can come out on top and it is likely due to the Chiefs struggling so far this season.

Kansas City is currently sitting at the bottom of the AFC West with a 2-2 record having lost to the Baltimore Ravens and the Los Angeles Chargers while being favored in both games.

Starting QB Patrick Mahomes has been off to a great start, leading the league in TDs at 14 and QBR at 83.0, but the Chiefs defense has been struggling.

The Chiefs are the third-worst team in passing yards allowed and the fourth-worst ranking in rushing yards so far this season.

On the other end of the field, the Bills are a top 10 passing team and a top 5 rushing team this season. With the Chiefs’ poor defense, they can and will be easily exploited by the Bills.

What’s been keeping the Chiefs afloat is their offense. Both the Chiefs and the Bills tie for the third-most points this season at 134 and Kansas City is fourth in the league in total yards gained.

With both these teams being strong offensively, and the Chiefs, in particular, being one of the worst defensive teams in the league, betting fans have been smashing the OVER. The OVER 56.5 at (-110) odds have seen 85% of total bets and 88% of the total handle for this matchup.
