We’ve been treated to some of the best football action in the playoffs, and this postseason is now heading to the Conference Championship games! Here, we have the AFC crown on the line, with the Cincinnati Bengals traveling to Arrowhead to face the Kansas City Chiefs!
The AFC North champions overcame the Las Vegas Raiders in the Super Wild Card Round opener, and as a result came up against the No.1 seed Titans. Despite star running back Derrick Henry back for Tennessee, Cincinnati were able to cause an upset and win on the road against the No.1 team in the AFC. Now, the Bengals have ended their 33-year drought of not appearing in the AFC Championship - the longest drought in the league. Will they be able to overcome the Chiefs?
What. A. Game. Many football fans couldn’t find the words to describe the final game of the Divisional round of the playoffs between the Chiefs & the Bills. Patrick Mahomes performed like Patrick Mahomes usually does, and the Chiefs were able to secure an overtime win against Buffalo. With just 13 seconds left in the fourth quarter, Kansas City were able to get the ball within field goal range, before kicking through the posts & then winning the toss to receive the ball in the first possession of OT. Now, they host the Bengals in another extremely exciting matchup.
These two have already met in the regular season, and it was surprising to see the Cincinnati Bengals come out on top. However, when it comes to the playoffs, in this high-stakes clash, we’re tipping the Kansas City Chiefs to secure the AFC Championship with a win. It will be an extremely close battle between the white lines, so our prediction includes a close winning margin!
Our tip is to select the Chiefs to win by 1-13 points at odds of +135 with FanDuel! For an extra, odds for the clash to go to overtime are currently +1480.
