The over is 8-1 in Chiefs last 9 road games. The over is 4-1-1 in Bengals last 6 games overall. The Chiefs are 1-4 ATS in their last 5 meetings in Cincinnati and 1-4 ATS in their last 5 meetings.

This is a little too much love for the Kansas City Chiefs, a team that's had many close calls recently and is still hit or miss at times defensively. The Cincinnati Bengals are playing their best ball of the season right now, and they'll have confidence knowing they beat the Chiefs twice back in January. At home, I'm not sure how you pass up the free points with the Bengals in a game that could easily go either way. Give me the home dog.
