This Joe Burrow Stat Suggest You Should Trust Bengals to Cover vs. Chiefs
Joe Burrow and the Cincinnati Bengals have made an impressive run this season, and they will take on Patrick Mahomes and the Kansas City Chiefs in the AFC Championship Game on Sunday.
Burrow has been fantastic this season, and he led the Bengals to their first playoff wins since 1991 in the first two rounds of the playoffs. Plus, the Bengals upset the Chiefs in the regular season behind 446 passing yards and four scores from Burrow.
Despite all of that, WynnBET Sportsbook has the Bengals as seven-point underdogs in this matchup, but that may be a good thing for bettors who want to take Cincinnati.
Joe Burrow and Bengals are Elite as Underdogs
Burrow and the Bengals are an impressive 5-1 against the spread as road underdogs this season, and 7-3 ATS as an underdog overall in the 2021 season. This isn't the first time the Bengals have had success against the spread with Burrow, as the team is 11-8 against the spread as an underdog and 8-4 ATS as a road dog in Burrow's starts over the past two seasons.
After watching the Chiefs' defense get torched without Tyrann Mathieu in the divisional round, could Burrow and Ja'Marr Chase dominate again?
Personally, I'm taking the Bengals for the second straight week to cover the spread. Cincy is just +750 at WynnBET to win the Super Bowl, but if you think it can get past Kansas City, then the Bengals are the best value on the board heading into championship week.
