Cincinnati at Kansas City

Sunday 10/21 08:20 PM Eastern

1 unit on Kansas City -240 (moneyline) (risk 1 to return 1.42)  RESULT: WIN

You need to have a strong defense when facing this speedy Kansas City offense but Cincinnati doesn't have it. The Bengals are #28 in the NFL in yards allowed, and #23 in points surrendering 26 points per game. They squeezed by Atlanta on the road but gave up 36 points, and fell apart when stepping up against elite quarterbacks, losing 31-21 at Carolina and last week's 28-21 loss to Pittsburgh. Marvin Lewis has been a bust in these prime time games. Since NBC took over the Sunday night package in 2006, the Bengals have been featured seven times and lost all seven. Since drafting Andy Dalton in 2011, the Bengals have gone 0-5 straight-up on Sunday night losing by an average of 11.2 points. It doesn't get any easier against explosive Kansas City, off its only loss, a 43-40 shootout at New England. The Chiefs are devastating on offense with QB Pat Mahomes and dynamic playmakers in WR Tyreek Hill, TE Travis Kelce, RB Kareem Hunt and WR Sammy Watkins. The Chiefs are fifth in yards per game, seventh in passing, second in scoring (35.8 ppg). Kansas City is in first place at 5-1 despite playing four of its first six contests on the road. The wagering value is on the home team to win the game. Play Kansas City on the moneyline.
