(NFL) Cincinnati vs. Kansas City, 01/29/2023 6:30 PM, Score: 20 - 23
Point Spread: 1.00 | -110.00 Cincinnati (Away)
Result: Loss
The Bengals were a road favorite just a few days ago, but with clarification about Mahomes' availability, this game is now a pick'em. The Bengals have had more success than any team against the Chiefs. Against the Bills last week, the Bengals' offense was the complete package. Burrow threw for 250 yards and two touchdowns, and the run game put up a huge 160+ yards against a tough Bills run defense. The defense dominated, limiting the Bills to just 60 rush yards, and Allen to no passing TDs.
The Chiefs are not above giving up points, especially in the air (32nd ranked in pass TDs allowed), and there will be concern about Mahomes' mobility, not to mention the three straight losses against the Bengals.
Not to underestimate Mahomes and the Chiefs, but Burrow is the prince in waiting, the Cincinnati run game put up some big numbers, and the Bengals' defense really impressed. Take the Bengals to cover.
