Sunday, Jan. 23, 2022 5:30pm CST NFL Division Round
We stayed hot in the Super Wildcard Round to the tune of a 4-2 weekend. That’s pretty good, especially for the playoffs, but I’m eying a clean 4-0 sweep for the Divisional Round. Since there are only four games this weekend, and we have been so good this year, I will be giving a full writeup for every game this weekend. Let’s ride.
Buffalo Bills Travel to Kansas to Face the Kansas City Chiefs
Two of the best teams in the AFC will cap off what is sure to be a great two days of playoff football. Both teams are coming off of huge wins thanks to great offensive performances. Buffalo is coming off a game that saw them score seven touchdowns on seven offensive drives. Something about that makes me think they wanted to go all out to embarrass their division rival.
I’m not saying they won’t get up for this game, but I think it might take them a while to get going on the road after batting 1.000 on offense last week. And struggling even for one quarter against the Chiefs can kill you, just look at what happened to Pittsburgh last week.
These teams met up in week five and Buffalo won handily 38-20. However, this is a completely different Chiefs team, especially on defense. Since losing to the Titans in week 7, Kansas City has one of the top passing defenses in the league and have only given up more than 20 points once.
Bills Defense and Chiefs Offense
The Bills defense has been good, but they are struggling in the run game. They have been a middle-of-the-pack rush defense lately, which could be their demise with the emergence of Jerrick McKinnon in KC’s backfield. At the end of the day, I have more trust in the Chiefs to create big plays on both sides of the ball.
Patrick Mahomes has been a less three point favorite 19 times in his career. In those games, he is 14-4-1 ATS. KC is also 2-5 SU and ATS in their last seven games against Buffalo. Take the Chiefs to make it to their third straight AFC title game.
We’re in for one hell of a weekend, boys and girls. I’ve crunched the numbers and there’s no way all these bets don’t win. We are going to continue our season of dominance. Pray for your bookie.
