NFL picks for Chiefs vs. Bengals in the AFC Championship Game
Before turning into Sunday’s Bengals vs. Chiefs game, you need to see the NFL picks from SportsLine’s advanced computer model. The model, which simulates every NFL game 10,000 times, is up over $7,500 for $100 players on top-rated NFL picks since its inception six-plus years ago. The model enters championship weekend of the 2021 NFL playoffs on an incredible 137-97 run on top-rated NFL picks that dates back to the 2017 season. Amazingly, it hasn’t missed a top-rated pick since Week 14 of the regular season.
The model also ranked in the top 10 on NFLPickWatch four of the past five years on straight-up NFL picks and beat more than 94 percent of CBS Sports Football Pick’em players four times during that span. Anyone who has followed it is way up.
For Bengals vs. Chiefs, the model’s top pick is under 54.5 total points. These teams are known for their high-scoring offenses, but the model shows that there has been an overreaction in the betting market. Cincinnati has been outstanding on the other side of the ball, holding Tennessee to just 16 points in the divisional round last week. The Titans had star running back Derrick Henry back on the field, but the Bengals were not fazed.
The Bengals have allowed 21 points or fewer in regulation in eight of their last 10 games. Cincinnati is also having offensive line issues, allowing nine sacks last Saturday in Nashville. As a result, the Bengals have gone under the total in five of their last seven games.
SportsLine’s model is projecting 53 total points, which makes the under a solid wager. It is cashing in almost 60 percent of the model’s simulations.
