Bengals vs Chiefs Parlay
It's pretty simple with this matchup: bettors should expect a ton of high-powered offense early and often. Kansas City has been on a tear offensively, hitting the over in each of their past five games, and averaging 35.8 points per game in that span. On the other hand, Cincinnati hasn't encountered a shootout since Week 17 of the regular season.
But, that can simply be attributed to some run-heavy offenses and stout defensive performances from teams like the Tennessee Titans, Dallas Cowboys and Cleveland Browns. In fact, the Bengals hit the over in Week 17 against this same Chiefs defense in the last time these two teams met. Both sides combined for 65 points in that one.
Even just taking their average points per game, the Chiefs (28.2 ppg - 4th) and Bengals (27.1 ppg - 7th) project to put up 55.3 points, or hit the over on this prop.
Keeping in line with a pair of high-powered offenses means Bengals quarterback Joe Burrow continues his groove. Burrow averaged 288.2 passing yards per game this past season, but has hit the over on this prop in five of his past seven games.
He torched the Chiefs secondary for 446 passing yards back in Week 17, and Chiefs' safety Tyrann Mathieu's concussion status leaves a lot to be desired for Kansas City's pass defense.
Lastly, we'll add some juice with one of Patrick Mahomes favorite weapons, wide receiver Tyreek Hill. He's already scored a pair of TDs in two playoff games this season and out-paces Travis Kelce as Mahomes' preferred target. This includes ranking first on the Chiefs with 159 total targets and 23 red zone targets. The Chiefs have been scoring in bunches and it's hard to imagine Hill isn't in on that acton on Sunday.
Juiced at +327, this is a solid way to increase the payout if you want some parlay action on this AFC Championship clash.
