Cincinnati Bengals vs Kansas City Chiefs Prediction

Bengals vs Chiefs Odds

This week, the first play I am turning to will be a matchup between the Kansas City Chiefs and the Cinncanti Bengals. The Bengals are flying high coming off a blowout win against their rival in the Baltimore Ravens. The Bengals saw themselves shoot up to number one in the AFC North, and they will control their own destiny the next two weeks with a chance to win the division. The Chiefs are also coming into this football game flying high as they are fresh off a blowout win over the Pittsburgh Steelers that clinched the AFC West. The Chiefs came into this season with Superbowl expectations, but they struggled early on, and some questioned if they would make the playoffs. The Chiefs have silenced the critics and are one of the hottest teams in football right now. I am betting on them to cool off against Joe Burrow and the Bengals this week. The Chiefs will have a letdown game here fresh off, clinching the division, and I love the Bengals getting five points playing for the division at home. I will gladly take the dog here, and I do believe the Bengals pull the upset and win this game outright.

Cincinnati Bengals vs Kansas City Chiefs Pick

  • Pick: Bengals +5 (-110)

Los Angeles Chargers vs Denver Broncos

Chargers vs Broncos Odds

The second play I am looking at will concern the Los Angeles Chargers and the Denver Broncos. The Bronco’s loss last week to the Raiders essentially will kill their playoff hopes after starting the season hot and looking like a potential playoff team. On the flip side, the Chargers are coming off a shocking loss to the Houston Texans. The Chargers will now need to win this football game to keep their playoff hopes afloat. The status of Broncos quarterback Teddy Bridgewater is still up in the air, and if he does not go, I believe this line will move even more with Drew Lock. I think this Broncos team has quit on the season and that the Chargers will be the more hungry team in this game at home. This is an excellent bounce back spot for the Chargers coming off an embarrassing loss to the Texans. I am going to opt to take the Chargers on the first half spread here as I believe they roll early in LA.

Los Angeles Chargers vs Denver Broncos Pick

  • Pick: Chargers 1H -3 (-115)

Arizona Cardinals vs Dallas Cowboys

Cardinals vs Cowboys Odds

The final play I want us to lock in early for this weekend will be a battle between the Arizona Cardinals and the Dallas Cowboys. The Cardinals have had a Jekel and Hyde type of season as they stood to be the last undefeated team in all of the NFL, and now they are battling for a post-season position as they fell out of the lead in the NFC West for the first time all season. The Cowboys are fresh off one of the most impressive wins all season in a blowout over their rival, the Washington Football team that crowned the Cowboys champions of the NFC East. The Cardinals will be the side I take as a large road dog in this game. I understand the line, but I love to bet on bounce-back spots, and this is a great spot for the Cardinals. The Cowboys will face one of their toughest tests of the season, and with the division locked up, their intensity in this game could slip a bit. I will roll the dice on the Cardinals here, who will be getting healthier this week as well. Give me the Cardinals to bounce back, cover this spread, and look for a breakout game from Kyler Murray against this Dallas defense.

Arizona Cardinals vs Dallas Cowboys Pick

  • Pick Arizona Cardinals +5.5 (-110)
