The Bengals and Chiefs will meet once again, this time with a trip to the Super Bowl on the line. These teams met about a month ago, in a game dominated by the Bengals. The Chiefs may still be riding high off of their epic win against the Buffalo Bills, but they will need to be completely focused to get past the Bengals.

Before you bet on the game, here's everything you need to know for every type of bet.

While I think the Chiefs will win the game, I have to back the Bengals on the spread. Cincinnati has found ways to stay in games and with their offensive potential, I can never count them out of a game.

We saw the Bills shred Kansas City's defense last week. If the Bengals have half the amount of success they did, it will be a close game.
