Cincinnati Bengals at Kansas City Chiefs Preview & Picks

Cincinnati are backed to repeat last season’s AFC Championship Game win.

Patrick Mahomes is set to play, but the Kansas City QB will not be at 100% and that is a problem.

The Bengals are on a red-hot run and have had the Chiefs’ number for over a decade now.

  • Cincinnati Bengals are 13-3-0 ATS in their last 16 games
  • Cincinnati Bengals are 3-0-0 ATS as a betting underdog
  • Cincinnati Bengals are 7-1 in their last 8 games vs Kansas City
  • Kansas City Chiefs are 2-6-1 ATS at home this season
  • The last 5 meetings have produced over 47.0 total points
  • Ja’Marr Chase has scored 9 touchdowns in his last 9 games
  • Travis Kelce has scored 12 touchdowns in his last 10 playoff appearances

Head To Head

  • Cincinnati Bengals lead the all-time series 18-14
  • Cincinnati Bengals won 27-24 when the teams last met on December 4
  • Cincinnati beat Kansas City 27-24 in last season’s AFC Championship Game

Cincinnati Bengals Form

Cincinnati go into the AFC Championship Game on a 10-game win streak that includes a win against Kansas City.

The Bengals appeared to be suffering from a Super Bowl loss hangover as they went 4-4 through the first eight weeks of the season.

However, they went into their bye on the back of a 42-21 win against Carolina, and that proved to be the spark for a surge in form.

They returned to action with back-to-back road wins, beating Pittsburgh 37-30 and Tennessee 20-16.

Cincinnati then backed that up with their most impressive win of the regular season – a 27-24 win against Kansas City in a repeat of last season’s AFC Championship Game.

The wins kept coming as the Bengals then beat Cleveland 23-10 before heading to Tampa Bay and New England for 34-23 and 22-18 wins.

They then wrapped up the regular season with a 27-16 win at home to Baltimore, and a week later they beat the Ravens again, this time 24-17 on Super Wildcard Weekend.

Cincy followed up that win with their biggest win of the season to date, racing out to an early lead and never looking back as they beat the Bills 27-10 in Buffalo.

Kansas City Chiefs Form

Kansas City have gone 10-1 in their 11 games since the bye week, with their sole defeat coming to Sunday’s opponents, Cincinnati.

The Chiefs dropped a couple of games before the bye, but when they returned to action they hit a rich vein of form.

They beat Tennessee 20-17 in overtime and downed Jacksonville 27-17, before heading out on the road to beat the Los Angeles Chargers 30-27.

Kansas City then beat the other half of LA, the Rams, 26-10, before going back out on the road for three straight games.

The first game saw them lose 27-24 to Cincinnati in a rematch from last season’s AFC Championship Game and a dress rehearsal for this season’s conference championship.

The Chiefs bounced back quickly though to win 34-28 at Denver and 30-24 at Houston at overtime.

KC then beat Seattle 24-10 and Denver 27-24 at home, before closing out the regular season with a 31-13 win at Las Vegas.

That clinched a first round bye for the Chiefs and when they returned to action last weekend they battled past Jacksonville, 27-20, in the Divisional Round.
