Pro football gambling expectations continue to rise for the Kansas City Chiefs who are a surprise NFL sports gambling leader of the AFC West Division.
The upstart Kansas City Chiefs will host the woeful Buffalo Bills on Sunday with a CBS telecast set to start at 1:05 PM Eastern. Sports-Gambling opened with Kansas City as a 7.5 point home favorite and with an over/under of 44.5.
Buffalo has a NFL gambling record of 0-6 straight up and 2-4 against the spread with 4 of their games going over the total. The Bills suffered a heartbreaking 37-34 overtime loss at powerful Baltimore as 12 point dogs.
The Bills rank 28th for both offense and defense and will have the difficult challenge of getting over their failure to pull off the big upset last week.
Kansas City has a NFL betting record of 4-2 straight up and 5-1 against the spread as they are coming off a 42-20 blowout home win over Jacksonville. Defensive coordinator Romeo Crennel has done a remarkable job in his first year as the Chiefs have climbed to rank 7th in points allowed.
KC has the number one ranked rush attack in the NFL led by Jamaal Charles who has 489 yards. Matt Cassel continues to show improvement as quarterback but has cut down on mistakes. Cassel has climbed to 9th overall in the NFL QB ratings and has a 9/3 touchdown/interception ratio.
The Bills have paid out in just 6 of their last 19 games versus teams with a winning record and just 2 of their last 8 as a dog. The Chiefs have paid out in just 1 of their last 8 games as a home favorite but have covered 7 of their last 8 games overall.
Buffalo has gone under the pro football gambling total in 7 of their last 10 games versus teams with a winning record while the Chiefs have gone over the total in just 4 of their last 15 games versus teams with a losing record.
Buffalo has paid out in 4 of their last 5 trips to Kansas City and the two teams have gone under the total in 5 of their last 6 meetings in KC.
