Buffalo Bills vs Kansas City Chiefs Prediction: Hit The First Touchdown Scorer at Betfred
In what's expected to be a high-scoring game, the Bills and Chiefs will meet up in Kansas City this weekend fresh off of two separate blowouts. For the Bills, hanging 47 on their division rival means nothing now as the challenge gets significantly tougher in this one.
Who might score first in this divisional round matchup? Let's take a closer look.
Buffalo Bills vs Kansas City Chiefs First Touchdown Scorer
First TD Scorer: Travis Kelce (+600)
As expected, Kelce was a major part of the Chiefs' game plan in their Wild Card blowout of the Steelers, and expect a similar path to potential victory in this one. Targeted seven times by Mahomes for 108 yards and a touchdown, Kelce rested for much of the second half in their runaway victory over the Steelers.
In this one, against the #1 defense in the entire league, look for Mahomes to once again rely on Kelce's sure hands early and should they get in the Red Zone on their first drive; for Kelce to find pay dirt.
First TD Scorer: Dawson Knox (+1200)
As I called last week on this very website, Knox had a terrific game last week scoring two touchdowns on 89 yards in a game where the Bills mostly ate the clock. While WR 1 Stefon Diggs gets the most attention, the sure-handed Knox likely will benefit again in this one.
Add in the fact the Chiefs' secondary is one of the more suspect in the league ranking #27 this season in yards allowed (251.4), and I expect another big game from Knox.
First TD Scorer: Josh Allen (+1000)
Barely losing the rushing battle in the regular season to his starting running back Devin Singletary, Allen rushed for 763 yards this season and scored six touchdowns. We saw those wheels on display last weekend vs. the Patriots, as he rushed for 66 yards and a touchdown, well above his regular-season averages.
In a game the Bills will need Allen's wheels more than ever, don't be surprised if he sneaks outside the pocket early and takes one in himself.
