The Buffalo Bills survived and advanced with their Wild Card win over the Miami Dolphins on Sunday. Now they turn their attention to the Cincinnati Bengals, who will look to pull off a road win in order to keep their Super Bowl hopes alive.

FanDuel Sportsbook's opening NFL odds for this exciting matchup have been released, and it's no surprise to see oddsmakers liking the Bills' chances in this one.

Bengals vs Bills Opening Odds

Buffalo is listed as a 4-point home favorite over Cincinnati ahead of Sunday's contest. The Bills were also favored when they went on the road to face the Bengals in Week 17, though that game was canceled after the scary on-field incident involving Damar Hamlin.

Wild Card Weekend presented early tests for both teams. Turnovers played a key role in Buffalo's meeting with the Miami Dolphins being much closer than anticipated. However, quarterback Josh Allen made up for his mistakes by throwing for 352 yards and 3 touchdowns. That win showed the Bills can win in high-pressure situations even when things aren't going as planned.

Cincinnati, meanwhile, was on the verge of being upset by the Baltimore Ravens on Sunday. A flukey 98-yard fumble return for a touchdown saved the Bengals, but it wasn't a particularly strong showing from the reigning AFC champs. Another performance like that against Buffalo would likely send them packing.

Given the talent on both sides, this game should be a thriller as these squads duke it out for the chance to make the conference championship game.
