The divisional round is officially set.
The Kansas City Chiefs will play host to the Buffalo Bills for the second time this season, but this time in a win-or-go-home playoff game.
According to Tipico Sportsbook, Kansas City will be just a 2.5-point favorite over Buffalo with an over/under point total of 54.5 points scored. The money line is -130 for the Chiefs and +105 for the Bills. Kansas City is 9-9 against the spread, while Buffalo is 10-6-2 against the spread.
Back when these teams faced in Week 5 of the regular season, the Chiefs were also just 2.5-point favorites and the over/under was 56.5 points scored. The Bills won that game 38-20, hitting the over.
This also marks the second consecutive season that Kansas City will face Buffalo in postseason play. These teams played in the AFC title game at Arrowhead Stadium last year, resulting in a 38-24 win by the Chiefs. Overall, the Chiefs are 2-2 in postseason play against the Bills dating back to the 1966 playoffs ahead of Super Bowl I.
One big difference this time around from the earlier matchup in the regular season comes on the defensive side of the ball for both teams. Tre’Davious White won’t be playing for Buffalo after suffering a season-ending injury back in Week 12. Chris Jones will be on the field for Kansas City after dealing with a wrist injury that sidelined him for the Week 5 game.
These are two of the most explosive teams in football as of late, so expect excitement and drama in this elimination game.
