Straight Up (Sebastian Morera)
The Chiefs suffered their first loss of the season in Week 5, spectacularly losing to the Oakland Raiders 40-32. Derek Carr played lights out football and Kansas City’s defense had no answer. Now Pat Mahomes and the Chiefs look to rebound against the Buffalo Bills, who recently suffered a Tuesday night loss to the Tennessee Titans. Both the Bills and Chiefs’ defense are coming off games in which they gave up 40 or more.
It’s tough to predict this one but I see two frustrated teams coming out with guns blazing. When the dust settles, I’m expecting the Chiefs to come out on top.
Against the Spread (Devlin Duckett)
Both the Kansas City Chiefs (4-1) and Buffalo Bills lost their first games of the season last week. The Raiders stunned the Chiefs in Arrowhead 40-32, and the Titans spanked the Bills 42-16 in Tennessee. The bookmakers believe that Kansas City is more likely than Buffalo to bounce back with a win in Week 6, so the Chiefs are the road favorite (-4) here.
However, the Bills are undefeated ATS at home this season. Buffalo will protect the ball much better this week, and will exploit what is clearly a vulnerable KC defense. I’m picturing the Bills’ D blitzing the hell out of Patrick Mahomes, and Mahomie running for his life most of the game. This game will be a defining moment for the Buffalo Bills franchise, as the reigning champion Chiefs suffer their second straight defeat in 2020.
It’s Raining Ducketts: Free ATS Pick, Buffalo Bills +4
Over/Under (Zack Robinson)
Initially, this game was scheduled for Thursday Night.
Patrick Mahomes and the Kansas City Chiefs own one of the best offensive units in the league. They average 29.8 points per game and the total has gone under in four of Kansas City’s last six games.
Nevertheless, Mahomes could need more help from the backfield. Also, the secondary needs to be a lot better.
The Bills can’t rely on Josh Allen to win every game. Their running backs need to step up and help the offense as a unit.
WR Stefon Diggs is a solid No. 1 receiver while Cole Beasley and John Brown (questionable) are really good backups.
The Bills average 30.8 points per game (fifth best in the league) and the total has gone under in four of Buffalo’s last six games at home. Go over in a thriller.
