Patrick Mahomes’ injury status has dominated most of the AFC Championship Game news this week and has certainly had an effect on Bills vs. Chiefs betting odds as well.
At the time of writing, Kansas City is a 3-point home favorite (click here for the latest AFC Championship Game odds), with the vig suggesting the market is leaning to -3.5 as well.
With Mahomes expected to play, the Bills vs. Chiefs over/under has stretched to 54.5 (after opening at 51), but bettors should also be aware of the weather forecast for Sunday’s AFC Championship Game at Arrowhead Stadium.
Poor conditions can have a significant effect on scoring, especially for a quarterback dealing with a bad case of turf toe.
Let’s take a look at the latest Bills vs. Chiefs weather forecast, and what it means for AFC Championship Game bettors.
Bills vs. Chiefs Weather Forecast
According to the National Weather Service, it’s going to be cold, wet and windy in Kansas City.
Temperatures will dip into the mid 30s, while winds will be picking up throughout the night, eventually settling into 8-14 mph breezes and gusts up to 20 mph.
And while it may not be raining at the start of the game, the chances of precipitation increase as the game progresses.
Sports Insights’ hourly weather breakdown isn’t all that bullish that rain will arrive at Arrowhead in time to affect Bills vs. Chiefs, but there will be double-digit winds blowing directly across Arrowhead Stadium.
At the time of writing the Bills vs. Chiefs over/under sits at 54.5, but don’t be surprised to see this number drop as more bettors become aware of the severity of Mahomes’ toe injury as well as the AFC Championship Game weather forecast.
