Most analysts like the Kansas City Chiefs (5-1) to knock off the Cincinnati Bengals (4-2) at Arrowhead Stadium this Sunday (8:20 p.m. ET/7:20 p.m. CT), but some think the Bengals will at least put up a fight and cover the point spread.
The Chiefs are listed by most oddsmakers as a 6- or 6.5-point favorite this week, but given Cincinnati’s potential to score points against a shaky Chiefs defense, some think they’ll be able to stay close enough to beat the spread, if not win the game outright.
The Bengals are coming off a tough 28-21 home loss against Pittsburgh, while the Chiefs were dealt a 43-40 last-second loss at New England last Sunday night. Both teams are also dealing with some key injuries, particularly on the defensive side of the ball.
Which team will be able to bounce back from their Week 6 loss and win what many are projecting to be a shootout?
Here’s a look at what the experts are saying this week.
