Odds and Predictions:
The Chiefs are favored to win this game by seven points. The over/under on total points scored is 53.5.
The Bengals have been playing well offensively, even without a decent offensive line. They were great against the run in the regular season, but they weren’t very good against. They have played very well through their first two playoff games.
Even though the Chiefs ran the ball well in their last game, they haven’t been consistent so expect the Bengals to stack the box and take their chances with stopping Mahomes. The Chiefs have played well defensively, but they have also struggled against the pass. With Tyrann Mathieu questionable for this game, expect them to struggle defensively against a confident Bengals offense, so go with Cincinnati to cover and the over.
