The Over for the total points is also seeing heavy action at 75% of bets and 88% of the money.
Some might argue that the Bengals will be able to pull off the upset being that they beat the Chiefs in Week 17, however, the Chiefs are a completely different team when playing in the playoffs. They have scored 40+ points in both playoff games while the Bengals were able to squeak by their games with wins of a touchdown margin or less.
The Bengals playoff experience also does not compare to what the Chiefs have done as this is their first playoff trip since 2015 while the Chiefs have now made it to four straight AFC Championship games.
The splits on the game total are potentially the strongest odds being that the two teams hit the Over last time they played and with the Chiefs expected to control the tempo, they could be headed that direction once more. The Chiefs have hit the Over in seven straight games.
