The Chiefs host the Bengals in the AFC Championship today. Kansas City is a 7-point favorites on WynnBET Sportsbook and -370 (bet $370 to win $100) on the Moneyline. The Bengals are +290 (bet $100 to win $290) to win the game outright. The OVER/UNDER is set at 54.5, so Vegas expects a high-scoring game.

But if you're interested in a higher-odds payout, you can always consider a game-game parlay. While not as likely to hit, the payout is higher so your wager can be lower.

For Bengals vs Chiefs, I've put together a four-leg parlay with +918 odds (bet $100 to win $918) at WynnBET Sportsbook. Here's the parlay and why I like the different legs.

Best Same Game Parlay Picks for Bengals vs Chiefs

  • Joe Burrow Over 8.5 Rushing Yards (-125)
  • Bengals Over 23.5 Points (-120)
  • Travis Kelce Anytime TD Scorer (-154)
  • Patrick Mahomes Under 29.5 Rushing Yards (-115)

Joe Burrow Over 8.5 Rushing Yards (-125)

Chiefs gave up the sixth-most rushing yards in the NFL to opposing quarterbacks this year (22.8) and Josh Allen just rushed for 68 against them last week. While Burrow is no Josh Allen, he will likely have a lot of opportunities to run for chunk yardage against a defense that will have to play man coverage and double team their talented receiving group.

Bengals Over 23.5 Points (-120)

The Bengals offense has been strong all season, averaging 26.6 points per game (eighth-best in NFL), and has only gotten better recently, averaging 30.0 points their last four games, minus the Week 18 regular-season game where many of their starters (including Burrow) didn't play.

Their 34 points against the Chiefs came less than a month ago, and while the Chiefs defense played better at times this year, they were susceptible against the better offenses in the league, giving up 36 against the Bills last week, 34 to the Bengals and 28 against the Chargers over the last two months. I see the Bengals scoring at least five times in this game and believe that will lead to 24 or more points.

Travis Kelce Anytime TD Scorer (-154)

Travis Kelce is on a five-game TD scoring streak, including the game-winner against the Bills last week. In his 13 playoff games, Kelce has 96 receptions for 1,196 yards and 11 TDs, nine of which have been scored the last three playoffs.

If that wasn't enough to make you feel confident, the Bengals gave up 8 TDs to tight ends this season, tied for the sixth-most in the NFL, including one to Kelce in the regular season, and gave up the sixth-most receiving yards in the NFL to tight ends this year. In what should be a high-scoring game, expect Kelce to find the end zone.

Patrick Mahomes Under 29.5 Rushing Yards (-115)

Mahomes torched the Bills defense for 69 rushing yards last week, but the Bengals aren't the Bills. The Bengals gave up an average of 14.8 rushing yards per game to quarterbacks and gave up 25 to Mahomes in their first matchup. Mahomes has only rushed for 30 or more yards seven times this season and hasn't done it in back-to-back games since October. While it could be a sweat down to the final whistle, I see him staying in the pocket and using his arm rather than his legs to pick up chunk yardage.
