A couple of AFC teams here, both with great shots to win their divisions in 2017.
The Chiefs are nobody’s idea of good football watching though so don’t expect a lot of action. Cincy is set in most spots and just wants to get to the season in good health.
Kick off is set for 7:00 PM ET with both teams likely to still show more of their depth than anything resembling a real game plan. Wager accordingly.
Kansas City Chiefs
The Chiefs are always an interesting study. This might be the most universally approved good team that nobody thinks can win a championship.
They are just not explosive enough, even though they are trying to be more like that. It was hard to like much of what we saw in their week 1 loss to San Francisco.
Against the 49ers they had trouble stopping both the run and the pass.
Still, this is a generally solid defensive group so I am not willing to throw in the towel just yet. They should be better on that side of the ball in this one.
It might not be the reputation we have burned in our brain bu the Bengals have been very solid the last several years under Marvin Lewis. Last season they fell though and I am expecting a rebound.
The opener was a fairly clean performance in a win against Tampa. I would not expect to see much of Jeff Driskel this season though. This team is very set in most parts, with good depth.
Marvin Lewis is one of the longest tenured coaches in the league but he has never put a high priority on winning in the preseason, in any week.
They are short favorites in a game they would probably be more heavily favoured in during the regular season.

4* Free NFL Betting Prediction: Bengals -1.5
I am expecting the Bengals to be a little sharper at home. The key will be converting drives into majors and not field goals.
NFL Free Preseason Score Prediction: Cincinnati 28 – Kansas City 17
I like the depth of Cincinnati a lot more than KC, especially at QB and RB. That will push them forward in this one.
