NFL Championship Round picks for Chiefs vs. Bengals

Before tuning into Sunday’s Cincinnati vs. Kansas City game, you should see the NFL picks from SportsLine’s advanced computer model. The model, which simulates every NFL play 10,000 times, is up more than $7,000 on $100 players in the highest-rated NFL picks since its inception. The pattern enters the 2023 NFL Playoffs’ AFC Championship and NFC Championship with an incredible 162-113 record in the NFL’s top-rated picks dating back to the 2017 season. It’s also 16-6 in the NFL’s top-rated picks from week 7 of this season.

The model has ranked in NFLPickWatch’s top 10 four of the last six years for straight NFL picks and has beaten more than 94 percent of CBS Sports Football Pick’em players four times during that span. Anyone who followed him is way up.

For Bengals vs. Chiefs, the model favors the Over. Much was made of Cincinnati’s depleted offensive line entering the divisional round against Buffalo, but it allowed just one sack of the Bills. With standout offensive lines allowing their respective quarterbacks to maximize their abilities, both offenses need to perform at high levels, and that’s evident from the pattern, which doesn’t even project four total sacks in the game.

Those teams combined to average 55.3 points per game in the regular season, so there could be some offensive regression and still have an Over hit. But the only regression the model predicts comes on the other side of the ball, as each team is expected to allow more points on Sunday than they have averaged this season. With offenses ahead of defenses, SportsLine’s model confidently favors Over, with a projected total of 48 points. You can stream the game here and get 30 days with promo code PLAYOFFS.
