Chiefs vs Bengals Vegas Odds

Game Preview

With or Without Kelce, the Chiefs are Sharp

Arguably the top tight end in the league right now, Travis Kelce, didn’t play last week against the Pittsburgh Steelers. Guess what? The Chiefs didn’t feel anything, and they rolled over Mike Tomlin’s crew 36-10. 

The former NFL MVP, Mahomes, controlled this one-sided domination from the kick-off until the end, throwing for 258 yards and three touchdowns. Byron Pringle caught two of those TD tosses for 75 yards and Mecole Hardman one. Clyde Edwards-Helaire added one on the ground. 

The defense would force three turnovers, picking Roethlisberger once and getting two fumbles, one on big Ben and the other on Diontae Johnson. Tershawn Wharton and Frank Clark both recorded a sack, keeping the pressure on the Steelers’ O-line constant throughout all 60 minutes. 

Joe Burrow’ Takeover

The former top pick at the NFL draft set a franchise record last weekend. In a 41-21 win over the Baltimore Ravens, Burrow threw for 525 yards, four touchdowns, and no picks. This is the most passing yards of one Brengals’ QB ever, and the fourth-most in the NFL history. 

So far this year, Burrow has 30 TD passes and 14 picks, with 4,165 yards, which is a very good record. It is really no wonder why the Bengals sit atop of the AFC North and have superb chances to win the division and enter the playoffs. 

Jo Mixon had 65 rushing yards with one TD, and 70 receiving with another scoring play. Meanwhile, Tee Higgins had a masterful game with 194 yards and two touchdown receptions, and Ja’Marr Chase caught seven passes for 125 yards. 

Head to Head Games – Close Series

So far, there have been 29 direct meetings between these two teams. The last one in 2018, ended with Kansas City defeating the Bengals at the Arrowhead, 45-10. 

NFL Week 17 Prediction (Chiefs vs Bengals)

We aren’t too sure who is going to win here because this game might go either way. Really, we wouldn’t be surprised if Cinci ends up on the winning side here. On the other hand, the line for the total number of points is set at 49.5, and in our opinion, this game should go over. These teams have very potent offenses, who have been pretty hot over the past few weeks. So it is better to go with this than with predicting the winner.

Expert pick: 

  • Over 49.5 points
