Starting with the injuries on the Kansas City Chiefs, highlighting the injury report is both Sammy Watkins and Le’Veon Bell who is out for the game. On the defensive end, linebacker, Willie Gay, is out for this game as well.
Sammy Watkins was listed as a game-time decision with a calf injury and did see just a limited practice leading up to the game as well. But since Watkins plans to sit here, it would open up the field for Mecole Hardman to hit the over for his 3-reception total on legal sports betting sites.
With Le’Veon Bell listed as out and Clyde Edwards-Helaire coming back from an injury, Darrel Williams could be in line to have himself a nice night as he could split field time with Edwards-Helaire.
Moving on to the Bills injuries, they had just two players on their injury report leading up to the game. Those players were rookie wide receiver, Gabriel Davis, and defensive tackle, Vernon Butler. Both players were listed as questionable.
Of the two players, Gabriel Davis would have an impact if he were to sit out as he has shown some great upside in his last three games as he has gone for over 85 yards in two of the three games. Also, it would certainly open up the field for Cole Beasley as well and would help bettors cash on the Over mark of his 4-receptions total.
The seven players that were listed on the injury report could also affect NFL bettors. Kenny Still most notably will be out which means Josh Allen’s arsenal of receivers is down. Those betting on Josh Allen’s props may want to keep this in mind.
