The game ended with a victory for the Chiefs 27-24. And it was a very exciting game to watch. If you have been in the gambling industry long enough, then you know that sometimes, its not just about the games, but the match up. And the drama that the Bills and Chiefs rivalry bring is top-notch.
You also have some pretty big names in the field, which is very popular for prop bets and parlays. Two-time MVP Patrick Mahomes was 100% in the game, pushing for another championship run, and the Bills have Josh Allen, who fought to win a first postseason win against the Chiefs.
