Going ‘Over’ At Arrowhead?
With two of the game’s premier quarterbacks and most explosive offenses pit against one another, bettors’ eyes are on the total in his playoff showdown. Buffalo hasn’t scored fewer than 27 points since Week 13’s weather-impacted Monday night loss to the Patriots. By further avenging that defeat — they covered (-4.5) and hit the OVER (43.5) without any help in Saturday night’s 47-17 win — the Bills extended their win streak to five games.
Kansas City has been on its own dominant run, winning 10 of its last 11. The Chiefs have scored at least 28 points in each of their last six games, all six going ‘over’ the total, including Sunday night against the Steelers.
Attention will justifiably be focused on the offensive exploits of these two sides. However, both the Bills and Chiefs have demonstrated their mettle on the defensive side of the ball as well. Bettors shouldn’t neglect to consider what a balanced postseason performance may look like between these two Super Bowl contenders.
