Week 13 of the 2022 NFL season includes a massive AFC showdown between the Kansas City Chiefs and Cincinnati Bengals. The Chiefs possess a bunch of momentum heading into this game as they ride a five-game winning streak, keeping their run going with a 26-10 victory against the LA Rams last week.

The Bengals shouldn't be overlooked, though. They've won each of their last three games and five of their last six overall. Riding the high stemming from last week's 20-16 win over the Tennessee Titans, look for the Bengals to give it their all in front of another packed crowd.

Chiefs vs Bengals Prediction & Pick

Patrick Mahomes and the Chiefs have a pretty good incentive to win this game. After all, this is a rematch from the 2021-22 AFC Championship Game — a matchup that the Bengals won with a 34-31 final score.

This game should be another shootout, especially with two of the NFL's top-five offenses being involved. At the end of the day, I predict that this is going to come down to which team gets the timely defensive stops. If that's the case, the Chiefs are the right pick.

Kansas City is only allowing 18.8 points over its last five games, whereas it was only two weeks ago that Cincinnati allowed the lowly Pittsburgh Steelers to score 30 points. With the Chiefs also boasting the best point differential in away games (plus-10.8), the road team has the advantage here.

Back the Chiefs winning in a shootout.

Final Score Prediction: Chiefs: 35 | Bengals: 30

Chiefs vs Bengals Best Bet

With how good both teams are playing, this game could come down to the last play. While I predict that the Chiefs will be victorious in the end, I don't anticipate them winning by more than one touchdown due to how good the Bengals' offense is. Instead of simply taking Kansas City as the 2.5-point favorite, back the Chiefs to win by a margin of one to 10 points this weekend.

Bet: Chiefs Win Margine 1 to 10 Points (+185)
