On Sunday afternoon, the Kansas City Chiefs will play the Cincinnati Bengals on GEHA Field at Arrowhead Stadium in a Week 17 matchup. Kickoff is scheduled for 3:25 P.M. (Arrowhead Time) on CBS — locally on KCTV/5 — with Jim Nantz, Tony Romo and Tracy Wolfson in the booth.

In Week 15, the Chiefs opened as 10-point road favorites against the New England Patriots. That spread narrowed to eight points before Kansas City left Foxborough with 27-17 victory. A week later, the Chiefs opened as 10-point home favorites against the Las Vegas Raiders — but after the spread opened to 10.5 points, Kansas City recorded a 20-14 loss.

Two weeks ago, the Bengals began the week favored by 1.5 points in their home game against the Minnesota Vikings. By kickoff, the line had opened to three points — and Cincinnati registered a 27-24 overtime victory. Then in Week 16, the Bengals were listed as 1.5-point road favorites over the Pittsburgh Steelers. The spread opened to 2.5 points before Pittsburgh spanked Cincinnati 34-11.

According to DraftKings Sportsbook, Kansas City has opened as a seven-point favorite in Sunday’s game.
