Cincinnati Bengals (4-2)
The Bengals were on the wrong end of a 28-21 street brawl against Pittsburgh last weekend that dropped them to a pitiful 2-16 at home against the Steelers in head coach Marvin Lewis 16-year tenure in Cincinnati.
Andy Dalton passed for 229 yards with two touchdowns and no interceptions while running back Joe Mixon rushed for 64 yards and one score on 11 carries as the game’s final score played Under the 49.5-point total.
After playing Over the total in their first four regular season games, the Bengals have played under the total in two straight coming into their Week 7 matchup against the Chiefs.
Kansas City Chiefs (5-1)
The Chiefs suffered their first loss of the season by losing a thriller to New England 43-40 last weekend on Stephen Gostkowski’s 28-yard field goal as time expired.
Patrick Mahomes passed for 352 yards with four touchdowns and two interceptions while wide receiver Tyreek hill caught seven passes for 142 yards and three touchdowns. The Chiefs and Patriots combined for 30 points in a wild, back-and-forth fight to the finish that finished Over the game’s 59.5-point total.
The outcome snapped a two-game Under streak for Kansas City that came on the heels of three straight Overs to open the season.
Expert Pick and Prediction
The 58-point total may look a bit daunting, but I wouldn’t be too worried if I were you. Cincinnati and Kansas City can both score the ball this season with the Chiefs averaging 35.8 points per game to rank third in scoring and Cincinnati putting up 29.0 points per game to rank sixth in scoring. Not only that, but the Chiefs and Bengals rank 27th and 23rd respectively in points allowed, so it’s not like they’ve been stopping the opposition this season.
I’m going with Kansas City to top the 30-point plateau and for Cincinnati to come very close to doing so as well.
• Over is 4-0 in Bengals last 4 road games.
