Kansas City Chiefs take on Buffalo Bills for a spot at the Super Bowl and our team have put together a 20/1 RequestABet to back.
Mahomes is the definition of sneaky mobile. You won’t see his athleticism, but he’ll pick up the yards. He now has three rushing touchdowns in his last three playoff games, and he’s good value to score against the Bills. When these two teams met in week six, Mahomes had ten rushing attempts (a season high) for 36 yards. He’s not afraid to run, and this Bills defence has shown weakness to quarterbacks on their feet – they’ve conceded seven rushing TDs to QBs, the joint second most in the NFL. There’s concerns around Mahomes’ health but if he suits up to play, it won’t impact his rushing ability – he’ll leave everything on the field.
Diggs has been the best receiver in the NFL, especially down the stretch. In the playoffs this season Diggs has produced back-to-back 100+ yard games and has a touchdown in each contest. You have to go all the way back to week four to find a game where Diggs didn’t see at least eight targets. He’s guaranteed to get volume, especially in a game where Kansas are likely to run up the score. The connection between Allen & Diggs is clear to see, and in the big moments you rely on your best players. Expect Diggs to find the end zone and eclipse the yardage line.
Last week the Bills became the first team in 30 years to not have a rushing attempt in the first quarter of a playoff game. This is the new era of the NFL, you don’t need to establish the run anymore, especially with Josh Allen under centre. Singletary finished the game with seven rushes for 25 yards, as he has been ineffective for weeks now. Through the past six weeks he’s averaging just over six rushing attempts per game, producing an average of 31.5 rushing yards/game. The Bills will likely have to chase Mahomes, and continue with their air-raid offence to keep pace with Kansas. Expect Singletary to be a non-factor in this game.
