Chiefs are favored by a touchdown vs. Bengals in Sunday Night Football

Kansas City Chiefs Season betting odds, picks and expert predictions

According to the NFL betting online spread, the Kansas City Chiefs are favored by a touchdown over the Cincinnati Bengals. The Chiefs are coming off their first loss of the season to the only team that could have – and did – stopped their momentum. But Pat ‘One-Man Arm-y’ Mahomes & Co. have nothing of which to be ashamed. According to the best online sportsbooks, Kansas City covered a 3.5-point spread. Moreover, losing by just three points in Foxboro is a moral victory if there ever was one.

The Bengals will certainly have their hands full with Mahomes. They couldn’t get at Big Ben in last weekend’s loss to the Pittsburgh Steelers. Compared to that, dealing with Pat will be like Menelaus trying to hold on to Proteus. “That’s probably one of the major reasons we didn’t win the game [against the Steelers] is just not keeping the quarterback in the pocket,” defensive lineman Jordan Willis said. “And skip to this week, Mahomes when he gets out the pocket, that’s when he’s most dangerous. So if we don’t keep him in the pocket, it could be a similar situation to last week.”

Betting Bengals

The Bengals lead the league in red-zone efficiency at 75%. The problem is, it appears they can’t see very well at night. Cinci is 2-8 SU in their last 10 primetime games. Furthermore, starting QB Andy Dalton is 6-13 against the NFL betting online spread in night games with the Bengals. The Red Rifle has an 81.1 quarterback rating in those 19 games.

Betting Chiefs

In a contrast that’s day to night, the Chiefs are 9-3 SU and 10-2 ATS in their last 12 primetime games. In addition to that, Kansas City is 4-0 ATS in their last four October games and 5-0 ATS in their last five against AFC teams. As well as 10-1 ATS in their last 11 overall and 5-1 ATS in their last six at Arrowhead Stadium.

Neither team’s defense is anything special. As a matter of fact, if Cinci’s D is bottom of the barrel, KC’s is the dirt underneath the barrel. On the other hand, offense hardly gets better than the Chiefs. Mahomes can pass and run circles around Andy Dalton. Long story short, take Kansas City and the points. Now for the NFL betting online total. The defensive ineptitude of both teams, plus their scoring prowess, completely justifies the highest total of the week. Bear in mind Chiefs and Pats went well over 20 points over a 59-point total.
