In Week 17, the Kansas City Chiefs travel to Cincinnati to take on the Bengals. The Chiefs have won eight games in a row, and the Bengals are winners of four of their last six games. Despite Kansas City being on the road in this matchup, it is a 4.5-point favorite over Cincinnati, according to DraftKings Sportsbook.

The Chiefs opened as 10-point favorites against the Pittsburgh Steelers in their Week 16 matchup, and they easily covered the big spread with a 26-point victory. The Bengals won a blowout of their own in Week 16, defeating the Baltimore Ravens 41-21. At this time of writing, the Chiefs have the No. 1 seed in the AFC, while the Bengals come in at No. 3.

The Chiefs last played the Bengals in the regular season in Week 7 of 2018 on Sunday Night Football. Patrick Mahomes outdueled Andy Dalton by throwing for more than 350 yards and four touchdowns in a 45-10 Chiefs win. Times have since changed for the Bengals, who are now led by second-year quarterback Joe Burrow.
