Welcome back to CaptainGambling.com’s latest, free NFL betting tips! Now all of the 2021 football action has taken place, we’re heading into the penultimate week of the NFL regular season! We’re focusing on a highly-anticipated AFC clash on Sunday - let’s dive into it!
Despite not having two of their offensive playmakers (Tyreek Hill & Travis Kelce) due to Covid, the Kansas City Chiefs still looked like one of the teams to beat in the league. Hosting a tough Pittsburgh Steelers side, the Chiefs put on an impressive performance, and came away with a 36-10 victory. Now, heading into week 17, the Chiefs hold the No.1 spot in the AFC, and will certainly want to maintain the position heading into the postseason. They have a 1-win cushion against the second seed - the Tennessee Titans - can KC hold on?
Meanwhile, the Cincinnati Bengals were extremely strong in Week 16 - overcoming the Baltimore Ravens in style. Granted, the Ravens had their third-string QB on the field, but thanks to Joe Burrow’s record-breaking performance, the Bengals came out on top. With 525 passing yards on the board (breaking the franchise record), combined with 4 passing touchdowns, it’s safe to say that Burrow was the main man in their matchup. Now top of the AFC North, the Bengals will certainly want to hold on to their division spot going into the playoffs.
For our first free NFL betting tip of 2022, we’re tipping the Kansas City Chiefs to get the win on the road in the second-to-last week of the regular season! With everyone due to be back for the Chiefs, and as it stands everyone else still available, we think while it will be close, the Chiefs will get the job done against the Bengals.
