NFL | Cincinnati 27 @ Kansas City 24 | 01/30 | 8:00 PM UTC
ANALYSIS: This spread finally got to 7.5 and now I'm ready to play Cincinnati. I don't think the Bengals are nearly as good as the Chiefs and worry big time about a Cincinnati offensive line that allowed nine sacks to the Titans, but I do think -- even in an AFC title game -- the Chiefs are due a minor letdown, at least for a while, off that incredible comeback win over Buffalo. The Bengals are playing with house money and have to feel confident after beating KC in Week 17. Joe Burrow is 5-0 SU & ATS in its past five starts, and he and Ja'Marr Chase have yet to lose a postseason game together dating to their LSU days (i.e. including bowls and the SEC title game). If Buffalo's Gabriel Davis can get four TDs on the Chiefs, Chase could set records. Oh, and I traded Chase during my fantasy rookie dynasty draft (hey, he had the dropsies in the preseason) for Chase Claypool and two first-round picks. OOPS!
