Cincinnati Bengals @ Kansas City Chiefs

Total: 58.5

Kansas City -6

Pregame Predictions

  • The Chiefs have allowed the most passing yards in the NFL this year (2,142) while the Bengals allowed the fifth most (1,818).

  • Kansas City has not only allowed the sixth most rushing yards this year (649) but they’ve also allowed the second most receptions to opposing running backs as well (46).

  • The Bengals haven’t been much better in terms of rushing yards allowed as they have given up the eighth most in football (615).

  • Patrick Mahomes 112.2 QB rating ranks him fifth in the league at that category. He’s thrown the most touchdowns and is also sixth in yards.

  • Andy Dalton ’s 14 touchdowns is tied for fourth in the league, but his seven interceptions is the fifth most.

  • Joe Mixon has had 64 rushing yards or more and at least 84 yards from scrimmage in each game he’s played in this season.

  • Kareem Hunt has scored a touchdown in four straight games and has a total of five over that span.

  • Tyreek Hill ’s three touchdown game in Week 6 was his first time into the end zone since Week 2. It was his first 100-plus yard receiving game since Week 1.

  • A.J. Green has 39 more yards and one more touchdown than Tyler Boyd , but Boyd has four more receptions.

Pregame Props

1) The last non-kneeling, offensive play of the 1st Quarter is a passing play? YES 2.5 / NO 2.5

YES. With the propensity that these two teams air the ball out, I’m going YES here.

2) Either team records 25 or more total yards on a single offensive play in the 1st Quarter YES 2.0 / NO 3.5

YES. Both teams has guys all over their rosters that create mismatch opportunities for opposing defenses that lead to big plays each and every game. This is an easy one, especially when you factor in the 56.5 over/under.

3) The first offensive play of the 1st Quarter is a rushing play that gains 3 or more yards YES 2.9 / NO 2.0

YES. Sticking with the “Yes” theme here, but it’s hard to say that these two offense will be bottled down at any point during this game.

4) A. Green (CIN) records more receptions than T. Hill (KC) in the 1st Quarter YES 2.1 / NO 3.0

YES. Only three teams have allowed more receptions to wide receivers this year than the Chiefs and they’re tied with the Jets for allowing the most targets in the league to opposing wide outs. Green should feast early and often here.

5) CIN gains 3 or more 1st Downs on their opening drive YES 3.9 / NO 1.6

NO. I’m not saying it’s impossible, because they’re a very high powered offense that could obviously march right now the field, but they could also score on the first play of the game. I’m playing it safe here and saying no.

6) 2 or more different KC players record a reception on the KC opening drive YES 2.7 / NO 2.2

YES. With Kareem Hunt , Travis Kelce and Tyreek Hill all on the field at once, it’ll be hard for Patrick Mahomes not to spread the wealth everywhere.
