Once again, Covid-19 has impacted the NFL’s schedule. After being forced to move the Buffalo Bills and Tennessee Titans game to Tuesday night last week, the league moved the Kansas City Chiefs and Bills game from Thursday night to tonight. The good news is we get another Monday Night Football doubleheader, kicking off with a matchup between two of the best quarterbacks in the league.
The team’s fan base and fantasy football players will have their eyes glued to the game, watching every play with the utmost attention. For gamblers, their only rooting interest is whatever will lead to money in their pocket. However, which bets should they place for tonight’s game? Here are five bets gamblers should consider placing.

Travis Kelce to Score an Anytime Touchdown (-125)
Kelce is the best tight end in the league; there is no argument against that. So far this season, Kelce has a touchdown in three of five games while averaging 9.2 targets per game. He is the focal point of the Chiefs’ passing attack. Meanwhile, the Bills have had no answer for slowing down tight ends. They are giving up an average of one touchdown per game to the position and have given up three touchdowns to tight ends over their last two games. With Tre’Davious White slowing down Tyreek Hill and Sammy Watkins out this week, Patrick Mahomes will lean on Kelce even more.
Josh Allen Over 1.5 Passing Touchdowns (-182)
Against the Titans last week, Allen had his worst game of the season, throwing for just 263 yards and two interceptions. However, he threw two touchdowns, making it the fifth straight game this season with two or more passing touchdowns. Meanwhile, the Chiefs allowed Derek Carr to throw for 347 passing yards and three touchdowns last week. Both teams have a high-powered offense, so expect both quarterbacks to have multiple passing touchdowns tonight.
Clyde Edwards-Helaire Under 74.5 Rushing Yards (-137)
Everyone will panic over the Le’Veon Bell signing. However, with the Covid-19 rules, Bell isn’t eligible to play in tonight’s game. Unfortunately, CEH has a tough matchup against the Bills. He has rushed for more than 65 yards only once this season, and that was back in Week 1. CEH has received 20 or more rushing attempts only twice this season and not since Week 3. The Bills have held running backs under 100 rushing yards in four of five games this season. Furthermore, they held Derrick Henry to only 57 rushing yards last week. Expect a quiet game from Edwards-Helaire.
Stefon Diggs over 5.5 Receptions (-124)
Without a doubt, the addition of Diggs has transformed the Bills offense. Diggs is averaging 10.2 targets per game, seeing at least six in every game this season. Furthermore, Diggs has at least six receptions in four of five games this season, averaging 7.2 per game. While the Chiefs have been able to slow down wide receivers this season, they haven’t faced an offense as high-powered as the Bills. Diggs should have his third game with 13 or more targets tonight.
Patrick Mahomes Over 1.5 Passing Touchdowns (-240)
When the payout is this extreme, it’s usually not worth placing a bet. However, if you know it’s going to hit, the price doesn’t matter. Mahomes has thrown at least two touchdowns in every game this season and 72 percent of his career games. Meanwhile, the Bills have had no answer for slowing down quarterbacks. They have given up 10 passing touchdowns this season, including two or more in four straight games. Furthermore, they gave up three touchdowns to Ryan Tannehill last week, despite the Titans missing several weapons. If you want to bet against Mahomes, go ahead, but it’s a foolish thing to do.
