Let’s take a look at the numbers the Kansas City Chiefs have put up in these types of spots. Andy Reid and Patrick Mahomes coming off the bye have been very successful. The Chiefs’ point totals coming out of a week off are 40, 31, 40, 51, 35, and 31 points scored, including both regular and postseasons. Obviously, they’ve been the number one seed the last couple of seasons, so they’ve had that bye into the divisional round.
Coming out of the bye into the Super Bowl last year against the Niners, KC dropped 31 points. That’s why the team total is an exciting bet. The Chiefs team total is 34 this week, four points less than their average points per game this season. Reid and Mahomes are averaging 38 points per game off the bye, four points more than the KC total on FanDuel’s Sportsbook. That feels like a pretty decent spot to buy, to buy the bye. KC has scored over 30 points this season nine times, which is a lot. That Chiefs’ team total has nowhere to go, but up so getting in now is the play.
