We are heading into the second to last week of NFL football. There are only two games to bet on this week, but there is definitely some money to be made. The fun starts Sunday at 3:30, when the Bengals travel to Kansas City to play the Chiefs.
The Bengals already beat the Chiefs this year and have all the pieces to do it again. The Bengals offense has been a bit cold since the playoffs started, but their defense is helping with that. They are allowing under 20 points per game in the playoffs. The offense has been doing enough to win behind this defense. Eventually, that offense is going to catch up and this is the week. The Bengals have so many weapons in Ja’Marr Chase, Joe Mixon, Tee Higgens, etc. The offense will find its stride this week and, while they might not be able to win this game, it will be close.
Bengals +13 and Rams +2.5
For the Bengals, see above.
While the Rams didn’t beat the 49ers in the regular season this year, it will be different this time. The 49ers are a tough matchup. They are a very physical team and run the ball well. The Rams have, in my opinion, the best defensive line in the NFL. They will have to play well. Forcing Jimmy G to pass the ball will be the key to a win. The Rams have a high-powered offense and it will be tough for the Niners to keep up.
Travis Kelce anytime TD
The Bengals are weak in the linebacker department. Expect to see Kelce in the end zone again this weekend.
OBJ anytime TD
Beckham gets so many red zone targets and with Kupp winning the triple crown, he will get a lot of attention this week.
George Kittle anytime TD
Just like the Bengals, the weak point of the Rams defense is the linebackers. I bet Kittle has a big day in the receiving game and will score.
