Although the hope for the Kansas City Chiefs and the Buffalo Bills meeting in Week 6 as undefeated teams is now out of the picture, this game should still attract everyone’s attention, as they are still among the top contenders to win the AFC. In this battle of 4-1 teams, which will come away with a victory?

Betting on the Kansas City Chiefs (-4)
Regular Season Record: 4-1
The reigning Super Bowl champions hit their first bump of the season when they fell prey to the Las Vegas Raiders at home last Sunday, 40-32. Obviously, the Chiefs’ defense was a big problem for them in that loss, but Mahomes and Kansas City’s offense will always be a threat to overcome the shortcomings of their stop unit. Mahomes had 340 passing yards and two touchdowns with an interception on 22-of-43 completions. Tyreek Hill also had a rushing score apiece. The Bills are regarded as among the better defensive teams in the NFL, but after seeing them get lit up by the Tennessee Titans last Tuesday, who’s to say that a team led by Mahomes can’t do the same? Titans tight end Jonnu Smith had 40 receptions and two touchdowns on five catches, which are important to note because the Chiefs have arguably the best tight end in the league. Travis Kelce led the Chiefs with 108 receiving yards and a touchdown on eight catches against the Raiders, and he’ll likely be Mahomes’ favorite target in Week 6, especially if Sammy Watkins can’t give it a go. Watkins is expected to miss at least two weeks after sustaining a hamstring injury in the Raiders game.
The Chiefs are 8-2 against the spread in their last 10 games overall.
Betting on the Buffalo Bills (+4)
Regular Season Record: 4-1
Like the Chiefs, the Bills tasted their first loss of the season in Week 5, as they got thrashed by the Titans on the road on Tuesday, 42-16. It was not going to be a walk in the park all season long for Josh Allen, as he was sent back down to Earth by the Titans’ defense. Allen went 26-of-41 for 263 passing yards and two touchdowns with two interceptions against Tennessee, though he could expect a more lenient Kansas City defense on Monday. The Chiefs got torched by Derek Carr in Week 5, as Kansas City’s pass rush and secondary were not able to put up a successful attempt to slow down the Raiders’ passing attack. Carr had 347 passing yards and three touchdowns with an interception while also getting sacked just once. That’s looking like a free meal for Allen’s arm, as the Bills are still one of the best passing teams in the NFL. The Bills are second overall with 308 passing yards per game and seventh with 7.9 yards per pass. On defense, Buffalo should be salivating over the prospect of getting behind Kansas City’s offensive line that’s allowed three sacks in Week 5.
The Bills are 2-0 against the spread in their last two games as the home team.
The Chiefs win, 29-24.
