The over/under for the AFC Championship game between the Buffalo Bills and Kansas City Chiefs opened at 54 points, per BettingPros consensus odds.

Betting Impact:

The Bills-Chiefs matchup is a meeting of two of the top six offenses from the regular season. The Bills finished the regular season ranked second at 31.3 PPG, while Kansas City had the league's sixth-ranked scoring offense at 29.6 PPG. These two teams combined for 43 points in a 26-17 Kansas City win in Week 6, but Buffalo has scored less than 20 points just twice since then. This high total suggests oddsmakers have confidence that Chiefs quarterback Patrick Mahomes will clear concussion protocol and will be under center this week against Buffalo. If Mahomes is surprisingly ruled out, this line total would plummet if backup Chad Henne is named the starter. The Bills are one of the league's most profitable teams to the over with an over/under record of 12-6 while Kansas City's over/under record is 8-9.
