The Kansas City Chiefs will be on the road to take on the Cincinnati Bengals on Sunday, January 2nd.
Both of these teams picked up wins in the previous week.
Kansas City opened up as a 4 point favorite and that number is now up to 4.5. The total has gone from 47.5 to 49.
Kansas City Chiefs
The Chiefs just continue to play football at a very high level. I do not think any team would want to face off with this crew right now.
Kansas City made easy work of the Pittsburgh Steelers on Sunday by a score of 36-10. To me, what made the win even more impressive was the fact that they were short-handed and it did not seem to bother them at all.
A lot of people thought this team was dead earlier in the year when they were struggling. A lot of those same folks are now in love with them again because they are winning football games.
Patrick Mahomes finished the day on Sunday going 23/30 for 258 yards with 3 touchdown passes. I have been very impressed with the way he has played for a good chunk of this season.
This has not been the case in past years, but this defense is playing awesome right now. This unit is absolutely on fire at the moment and I do not see them slowing down. I wish good luck to any offense going against them.
The Bengals have had a very solid season and they are playing good football at the absolute right time. This is a very dangerous football team.
Cincinnati beat their AFC North Rival, the Baltimore Ravens on Sunday by a score of 41-21. That is two times this year that they have beaten up badly on Baltimore. I am sure Cincy is thrilled by that one.
At the moment, this team is in control of the AFC North. If they take care of their business down the stretch, they will win the division, which has not happened in some time. With that said, a lot of things can still happen and as we know, nothing is guaranteed.
In the win on Sunday, Joe Burrow finished the day going 37/46 for an amazing 525 yards. It is not all that often that you see someone be that accurate and throw for that many yards.
The defense has certainly played better this year than they have in past years, but it still has a lot of work to do. Truthfully, I am not all that confident that they are going to be able to slow down a very explosive offense in the Chiefs. This unit will certainly have its hands full.

4* Free Week 17 NFL Betting Prediction: Bengals +4.5
Out of all the games that are taking place in week 17, this is one that I really have my eyes set on. I think it has the chance to be one helluva game.
This game is going to be a good measuring stick for the Bengals. We know they are a very good and talented team, but how will they stack up when they face the best team in the AFC? Clearly, it would be a huge statement win if they could knock off Kansas City.
Based on both offenses, I can see this being a game where plenty of points will be scored. It would not shock me if it came down to the team with the ball last.
In this spot, I just do not feel the Bengals will be intimated by the Chiefs. They know this game will be a big challenge, but I feel like Cincy will be ready.
I get that the Chiefs have been very good against the spread as of late, but I do not love them to cover in this game. The 4.5 is just too high for me because I could see this being a one or two-point game.
Give me the Bengals getting the 4.5 points at home here.
