Chiefs vs. Bengals Free Pick
The Kansas City Chiefs have dropped back-to-back games and are coming off a short week of preparation for today’s matchup with the Cincinnati Bengals at 1:00PM ET.
According to oddsmakers from online sports book BetDSI, the Bengals are 3.5-point home favorites versus the Chiefs while the over/under is currently sitting at 45 points. Kansas City is 1-2 straight up and 1-2 against the spread, while Cincinnati is a perfect 3-0 both against the spread and straight up.
The Chiefs finally found a rhythm in the fourth quarter of Monday night’s loss to the Packers but it was too little, too late as the team fell 38-28 in Green Bay. Alex Smith has struggled to start the season and things don’t get any easier today when he faces a pair of corners in Adam Jones and Leon Hall that have played well.
Defensively, Kansas City welcomes cornerback Sean Smith back from suspension but he’ll immediately face a difficult challenge trying to compete with A.J. Green. The Chiefs have a formidable pass-rusher in Justin Houston but if Andrew Whitworth and Andre Smith Jr. can hold up in pass protection then Andy Dalton should have success moving the ball through the air.
