Cincinnati Bengals NFL Betting

The Cincinnati Bengals are likely feeling a little bit of déjà vu this weekend. During their incredible playoff run last season, they went on the road and knocked off the Tennessee Titans and Kansas City Chiefs in back-to-back weeks en route to their first Super Bowl appearance in over three decades. Now, after a road win over Tennessee last week, Cincinnati must take on Kansas City this week. The Bengals will be at home in this rematch of the AFC Championship Game, but they are underdogs against the Chiefs.

On Sunday, December 4, 2022, the Cincinnati Bengals will welcome the Kansas City Chiefs to Paycor Stadium in Cincinnati, Ohio for a game that will kick off at 4:25 p.m. ET on CBS and will be nationally televised.

Cincinnati Bengals Week 13 Matchup

There’s no doubt that Kansas City is the team to beat in the AFC. Patrick Mahomes is an odds-on favorite to be named NFL MVP, as the Chiefs are 9-2 and in position to grab the No. 1 seed in the conference. Mahomes has been lights out this season, completing 66.1% of his passes for 3,585 yards (8.1 YPA) with 29 touchdowns and eight interceptions. He is averaging 6.5 YPA too as he helps pace the Chiefs’ ground game.

Tight end Travis Kelce is having a monster season with 73 receptions for 912 yards and 12 touchdowns. JuJu Smith-Schuster and Marquez Valdes-Scantling have both been solid offseason additions, helping offset the loss of speedster Tyreek Hill. Rookie running back Isiah Pacheco has been a nice find too, and he leads the team with 455 rushing yards (4.7 YPC) and two touchdowns.

Cincinnati has a slightly above average defense. The Bengals are allowing 21.0 PPG and 328.3 YPG, and they have done a decent job against both the run and pass. However, they do not get to the quarterback often with just 17 sacks in 11 games. The good news is that this unit is very healthy with Chidobe Awuzie the only injured starter.

The Bengals may not have two of their best offensive weapons though. No. 1 receiver Ja’Marr Chase is questionable and hasn’t played since late October, while Joe Mixon is questionable after missing last week’s game with a concussion. The absence of Chase would be particularly tough ahead of this game as there’s a good chance this game turns into a shootout, and he is Joe Burrow’s best receiver.

Tee Higgins and Tyler Boyd would be Burrow’s best two targets if Chase is unavailable. Higgins has continued to develop, but Boyd has somewhat fallen off over the course of the season. As for Burrow, he has been very good provided the offensive line gives him time to make his reads.

Kansas City has a league average defense. The Chiefs are allowing 22.1 PPG and 335.5 YPG, as they don’t have to too much opposite the best offense in the NFL. However, they are dead last in red zone defense, so that’s something to watch in this game. Chris Jones has been excellent in the middle of the defensive line with 10 sacks and 11 tackles for loss.

Cincinnati Bengals Week 12 Recap

Joe Burrow was cool, calm, and collected in the pocket on his way to leading Cincinnati to a 20-16 win over Tennessee last week. Burrow completed 22 of 37 passes for 270 yards and a touchdown as his offensive line was able to keep him upright throughout the afternoon. He was only sacked once and took off to run nine times for 32 yards, allowing the Bengals to draw even with Baltimore in the AFC North race.

Tee Higgins was the leading receiver for the Bengals with seven receptions for 114 yards and a touchdown. Hayden Hurst was the second leading target with six receptions for 57 yards, as Tyler Boyd didn’t do much on the afternoon. In place of an injured Joe Mixon, we saw Samaje Perine have a nice day with 21 touches for 93 yards and a TD.

Cincinnati’s defense sold out to stop Derrick Henry and succeeded on that front. Henry had 17 carries for 38 yards, but he did have three catches for 79 yards in the game. Ryan Tannehill completed 22 of 34 passes for 291 yards and found rookie Treylon Burks four times for 70 yards.

The Cincinnati Bengals were founded in 1968 as an American Football League expansion franchise. They hold the distinction of being the last team formed in the old AFL.

The late great coach Paul Brown was the founder and first head coach of the Bengals. Brown was ousted by the Cleveland Browns in 1962 and was stewing in exile until the Bengals' opportunity opened. Cincinnati became one of the most successful expansion franchises in pro football history. In their third season, Brown led the Bengals to the AFC Central title and set the stage for a perennial contender.

Cincinnati has never won a Super Bowl championship but has been to the big game three times. The 1981 Bengals lost to the San Francisco 49ers. The 1988 Bengals were defeated in the final seconds by the 49ers again. And then came the 2021 team that shocked the pro football and gambling world by making it to Super Sunday, only to lose another close one to the Los Angeles Rams.
