The Buffalo Bills are among the NFL teams favored to win this week. Buffalo is a 2½-point favorite against Kansas City in the NFL Divisional Round matchup. This is a pretty even playoff matchup, so we are going to focus on the top player props.
Here are my NFL predictions for the best player props in the Chiefs-Bills matchup.
Bills RB James Cook Over 61.5 Rushing Yards (-109)
The Bills have been heavily leaning on their rushing attack during the team’s resurgence. Cook posted 18 carries for 79 yards in the Bills initial playoff win over the Steelers.
The running back had success against Kansas City in the regular seasons despite limited touches. Buffalo has a better chance of having success on the ground in this matchup. Bet online the over on Cook’s rushing yards.
NFL Player Prop: James Cook
Bills QB Josh Allen Over 45.5 Rushing Yards (-114)
It is a similar thought process for this NFL bet as well. Allen tends to use his legs in the playoffs as evidenced by his 74 rushing yards against the Steelers.
For this to cash, Allen just needs to hit one or two long runs. We like the over on Allen’s rushing yards.
NFL Player Prop: Josh Allen
Chiefs TE Travis Kelce Over 63.5 Receiving Yards (-114)
It has become popular to pile on Travis Kelce, but the star is still Patrick Mahomes’ security blanket. Who do you think Mahomes is going to rely on in his first road playoff game?
Kelce posted 71 receiving yards in the freezing cold against the Dolphins in the Wild Card round. The Kansas City tight end posted 6 catches for 83 yards against Buffalo in the regular season.
We’re taking the over on Kelce’s receiving yards in this matchup.
NFL Player Prop: Travis Kelce
Chiefs RB Clyde Edwards-Helaire Over 7.5 Rushing Yards (-120)
We saw Clyde Edwards-Helaire carve out a role in the Chiefs’ win over the Dolphins. The running back notched 7 carries for 21 yards in the Wild Card round.
For Edwards-Helaire to top this prop, the running back essentially needs two carries. The veteran had 11 carries for 39 yards against Buffalo in the team’s last matchup.
We’re taking the over on CEH’s rushing yards in the NFL Vegas odds.
NFL Player Prop: Clyde Edwards-Helaire
