Football Betting: Kansas City Chiefs vs. Cincinnati Bengals

Football betting on Sunday has a most appropriate matchup of the Chiefs and Bengals in a merciful NFL football betting finale for both teams.

Football betting handicappers have gotten about what they expected from Cincinnati.  Kansas City, on the other hand, has brought unexpected NFL football betting value.  The Kansas City Chiefs have been one of the worst straight up teams in the league but their football betting performance has been quite another matter.

Despite losing 12 of their first 14 games the Chiefs were a surprising 8-6 against the NFL odds.  The Chiefs were even better as a football betting dog with a mark of 8-5 against the spread.  Kansas City was most valuable in their least appealing NFL football betting role, that of a road team.

Those who had the guts to take the Chiefs on the road were rewarded with a strong football betting profit as KC went 5-2 against the number as a visitor.  Many NFL football betting fans were thrilled at the announcement that longtime president and general manager Carl Peterson agreed to leave the Chiefs after this game.

Peterson’s 20 year run was strong in the first half, but the Chiefs have lost a lot of football betting respect in the past decade.  Kansas City has had many football betting problems including a defense that ranked 32nd and an unstable quarterbacking situation.

The road team was a strong 9-5 against the spread in KC games this season and the Chiefs went over the total in 5 out of 7 road games in 2008.  The Cincinnati Bengals have been even less appealing to football betting handicappers than the Chiefs.  While the Chiefs have found a way to get the cash Cincinnati has not.

The Bengals had a straight up mark of 2-11-1 but were just 5-9 against the NFL odds.  Cincinnati’s biggest football betting weakness was their offense, which ranked 32nd overall in the league.

The Bengals had an over/under football betting mark of 5-8-1 under the total, including a home mark of 2-4-1 under the number.  As a football betting chalk Cincinnati was 0-2 against the spread.
