Consensus: 51% of the money is on the Chiefs. The total is 66% over. Late money coming in on the Jags.
Player Prop: Travis Kelce over 79.5 receiving yards. The price is -115. Kelce had 81 yards and 6 catches in the first meeting. He goes over.
The Selection: Jags were dominated in the first meeting and Patrick Mahomes threw for 4 Touchdown passes. The Jags are playing better since that game and have won 5 straight. Chiefs will win the game, but this should be more competitive. Grab the points and the Jags.
The Buffalo Bills against the Cincinnati Bengals. The Bills are favored by 6 and the total is 49.The money line is Bills -250 and Bengals +200. Bills are the home team. Bengals won their Wildcard game by a score of 24-17 over the Baltimore Ravens. The Bills won at home against the Miami Dolphins by a score of 34-31.

Consensus: Bengals have 65% of the action on them. 71% of the wagers are on the over.
Player Prop: Josh Allen with over 1.5 touchdown passes. The price is -185. Take Allen over.
Selection: The Bengals will be at a disadvantage with the loss of three of their starters on the offensive line. The protection for Joe Burrow will be key if the Bengals will have a chance in this game. I see 4 sacks by the Bills defense. Bills take care of the Bengals and cover the number. The game goes under.
