    Bills vs Chiefs: Buffalo Small Underdog

    https://www.buffalorumblings.com/202...d-betting-odds

    This Sunday night in the divisional round of the NFL Playoffs, according to DraftKings Sportsbook. Thatís not a surprise. What is a slight surprise is how small the line is; Buffalo started as a 2.5-point underdog and the line has already moved down to 2 overnight.

    Kansas City gets the home field, which usually accounts for 3 points, so on a neutral field, the Bills would actually be favored in this game.

    The over/under is the highest itís been in a while. With two prolific offenses, the total points in the game is set at 54. All told, bettors predicted a 28-26 win for the Chiefs.

    Plus the media keeps feeding Allen that this is thir 4th meeting in 15 months and Allen has only won one of those games so far. This will fuel him: the equalizer.

    Always play smart and be aggressive when you have the opportunities they give.

    Early weather forecast: Day time high temp in low 40s. Partly cloudy and winds 10-15 mph. I haven't seen a game time prediction, but I'm guessing the temperature will start out in the upper 30s - maybe 37 and drop to close to freezing by the games end. Balmy compared to what Buffalo has had to deal with already.
    I've made up my mind. Don't confuse me with the facts.

    I'm the most reasonable poster here. If you don't agree, I'll be forced to have a hissy fit.

    Re: Bills vs Chiefs: Buffalo Small Underdog

    This is the game the entire organization has been working for, starting as soon as the final whistle blew in the conference championship game last year.

    Getting better than KC fueled free agency, re-signings, the draft, OTAs, training camp, etc etc.

    They kind of met their goal in a less meaningful regular season game, but you have to be better when it's win or go home.

    The result of this game will either justify everything McBeane and Co have done in the last 12 months, or stain the same as a failure.

    Will be a terrible shame though if we conquer this mountain to find out we're not so prepared for the one behind it, Tennessee.

    Maybe Cincinnati beats Tennessee.

    early indications are clear, temp 25-30 around game time, minimal wind.

    Most importantly, a waning gibbous moon.

    Last year's AFCCG had a waxing gibbous moon.

    Both games in the AFC oddsmakers set tight.

    Green Bay is a 5.5 point favorite over the 49ers.

    Re: Bills vs Chiefs: Buffalo Small Underdog

    2 point dog on the road? That means we'd be a 1 point favorite at home.

    Basically this is a pick em.

    I fully agree with that.

    Now the Pack 49ers matchup? Pack will win by double digits.

    Books giving Bills a lot of respect. More respect then the asswipe OP.

    2.5 point dogs on road. Covers. Com says 55% of tickets on buffalo. It's early tho.

    Re: Bills vs Chiefs: Buffalo Small Underdog

    I know its probably irrelevant, but I hate to think that the betting lines might inspire KC to feel disrespected. I think this is a pickem matchup on an even field, but I would much rather the Chiefs go into this thing with everyone in the world telling them that they can't lose. Money doesn't lie though and if we're getting most of the action, they're going to recognize that. I'd feel disrespected if i was them and didn't have at least a 3 point edge by the oddsmakers and betting community.
    All Hail Josh Allen! Savior of the Buffalo Bills!

    Freedom for the Ukraine. Down with Putin and every traitor in this country that supports him.

    If it closes at 2 or 2.5 that screams the books want you to Take KC. Holding it there is to get kc money expecting 3 point win. Let's see if it moves
