Bills Chiefs Betting – The Buffalo Bills Woes Continue in 2010
There is nothing going on in the Buffalo Bills (0-6) season that the betting experts did not expect. The Bills are finding creative ways to win games and allowing players to abandon ship at the same time. Former starting quarterback Trent Edwards was cut after week two, and running back Marshawn Lynch was traded to the Seattle Seahawks. While the Bills find things tough going, the Kansas City Chiefs (4-2) are defying all preseason NFL predictions by putting up winning NFL scores that no one expected.

What’s On The Line
The Kansas City Chiefs are trying to run away with the AFC West. Considering that their closest competition is the Oakland Raiders (3-4), the Chiefs can have the division wrapped up by Thanksgiving if they keep on winning.
The Bills are lost and clueless. They seem to have no plan for righting a sinking ship, and there seems to be no commitment by management to create a plan. The Bills drafted running back C.J. Spiller in the first round but have no offensive line to block for him. It is backwards decision making like this that is causing the Bills their problems.
Offensive Matchups: Bills Chiefs Betting
The Chiefs are a running team, and no one expected that from them this season. Running back Thomas Jones currently has 461 rushing yards this season, and running back Jamaal Charles has 489 yards on the ground. It is entirely possible that the Chiefs could have two 1,000 yard rushers this season. Quarterback Matt Cassel is proving to be a competent and efficient game manager, which is exactly what a good offense needs.
The Bills appear to have found their starting quarterback in Ryan Fitzpatrick. The Buffalo offensive line even looks to be much improved over last season. The problem for the Bills offense is turnovers and penalties. Each time the Bills take one step forward with a good play on offense, they take two steps back thanks to a penalty or turnover.
Defensive Matchups: Bills Chiefs Betting
The Chiefs defense has limited the opposing offense to an average of 19 points per game. They have a weakness in the pass defense as they are giving up an average of 244 yards per game which ranks them 25th in the league. If there was a sliver of hope for the Bills in this game, it is the weak defensive secondary of the Chiefs.
The Bills’ one strength on defense is their pass rush which ranks ninth in the league giving up an average of only 204 yards per game. The reason the Bills pass defense is so impressive is that their rush defense gives up 175 yards per game and gives the opposition no reason to throw the ball.
Notable Injuries: Bills Chiefs Betting
The Bills injury list includes Demetrius Bell (knee), Jairus Byrd (thigh), Cornell Green (knee), Keith Ellison (knee) and Terrence McGee (back).
The Chiefs have Reshard Langford (ankle), Ryan Lilja (hand) and Dexter McCluster (ankle) listed as their only injuries.

Outlook and Pick: Bills Chiefs Betting
The Bills desperately need a game to build off of to avoid being the second team in NFL history to go 0-16. Unfortunately for the Bills and their fans, this will not be that game.
