Bengals roar into Kansas City looking to gain Super Bowl spot.

The Cincinnati Bengals and Kansas City Chiefs return to the AFC Championship Game for the second consecutive year. The Chiefs will play host to the Bengals – again -- on Sunday at Arrowhead Stadium. Kickoff is 6:30 p.m. ET.   


Online sportsbook,, has a plethora of prop lines available for the AFC Championship and currently has the game as a “pick.”  


“A pick actually means there is no spread to cover. It’s basically choosing an outright winner,” BetUS’ Marcus Johnson said. “Taking the Bengals right now is a great deal: you also get them at Ev (even money), so if a customer risks $100, he’ll get $100 back.”  


The Bengals are the second team in NFL history to follow losing a Super Bowl by starting 0-2 and still making it to their conference championship game. Let’s not forget that last season they upset the No. 1 seed the Tennessee Titans and then went on to upset No. 2 seed Chiefs.      


Cincinnati dominated and were in complete control against the Bills in the divisional round and proved, once again, that they’re still riding their ‘upset wagon’; and by the looks of it, they’re not planning on stopping just yet.   


“Joe Burrow led the team from the first drive, was an absolute game changer and is looking to do what he did last season once again.” says Johnson,  senior betting analyst at BetUS.   


The offensive line was missing three starters but only was flagged for two penalties and allowed Burrow to be sacked once, plus they completely dominated the line of scrimmage. The team is surging and is balanced on both sides of the ball. Defensive coordinator Lou Anarumo’s defensive game plan was outstanding.  


They’ve had a lot of success against Kansas City, they already played at Arrowhead earlier in the season and the Bengals won that game. In fact, Joe Burrow is currently 3-0 against Patrick Mahomes, and, if they are able to run the ball on Sunday, it will be really hard to slow them to the point where this might become a 4-0 series.   


“Joe Burrow is always relaxed and mellow. He never loses his cool. He thrives when he’s under pressure and the team needs him. The Bengals are hot right now and are close to getting a back-to-back Super Bowl appearance in their QB’s second year in the league. This is huge for the franchise.” Johnson concluded.   


The Bengals went from being the underestimated team to having everybody on the edge of our seats. They’ve won as many playoff games in the last 2 seasons as the franchise did in 55 years and are now real Super Bowl contenders.
