Earlier this week, the oddsmakers decided to make the Buffalo Bills an underdog for the first time this season against the Kansas City Chiefs. The so-called “experts” are agreeing, unfortunately.

According to NFL Pickwatch, 55 percent of the analysts, writers, and talkers on television are picking the Chiefs (2-2) to defeat the Bills (3-1) on Sunday Night Football.

Despite the Bills having the better record, taking the Kansas City isn’t actually that bold of a pick.

Not only did the Chiefs beat the Bills twice just last season, this game is in Kansas City. KC has one of the NFL’s best home-field advantages.

Still, don’t count out the Bills. The early-week spread near three points in favor of Kansas City is not that big, either.

It could be a close one.

For what it’s worth, along with this week being the first time the Bills are underdogs, it’s also the first time the experts picked against Buffalo.

But if the Bills do pull off this upset? There are plenty of doubters among that 55 percent.

If you’re in a mood after a Bills win to remind such “experts” that they were wrong on Twitter, some of those picking the Chiefs include: Mike Jones (USA TODAY), Nick Shook (NFL Network), Maurice Jones-Drew (NFL Network), Sam Acho (ESPN) and Will Brinson (CBS Sports).
