Cincinnati Bengals vs. Kansas City Chiefs Prediction: Hit The First Touchdown Scorer at Betfred
Cincinnati Bengals vs Kansas City Chiefs Prediction: Hit The First Touchdown Scorer at Betfred
Two quarterbacks that will likely be going at it in the AFC for the next decade will go at it Sunday afternoon in Kansas City, less than a month removed from their first duel. While Joe Burrow got the best of Patrick Mahomes in that one, my guess is the former Super Bowl MVP will have something to say about that.
Let's take a closer look at how things might get started.
Cincinnati Bengals vs Kansas City Chiefs First Touchdown Scorer
First TD Scorer: Tyreek Hill (+600)
Hill has proved once again this post-season there are few, if any, guys more electric when it matters most. Racking up 207 yards and two touchdowns through two games, Hill is once again Mahomes' go-to guy when he needs a first down and I expect plenty of looks early and often to get this one to the finish line.
Hill's ability to return punts also gives us an out, an angle few other options in this category can claim.
First TD Scorer: Joe Mixon (+750)
Despite only 102 yards on the ground through two postseason games, Mixon has also shown off his hands accruing 79 yards on 12 targets this postseason. In a game that I expect the Bengals to be aggressive in early, look for Mixon to get plenty of Red Zone looks early and often in this one.
First TD Scorer: Ja’Marr Chase (+800)
On the way to Chase having a monster rookie season that included some spectacular performances, one stands out more than others; his game vs. the Chiefs. Accruing 266 of his 1,455 regular season yards, Chase also scored three touchdowns on the day almost 25% of his entire season total.
Having not found pay dirt yet this post-season despite 100+ yard games in both games, look for Chase to find it early this week and for the Chiefs to start off in the driver's seat.
