Keeping The Streak Alive

There is no hiding that the Kansas City Chiefs are the biggest dynasty in the NFL today and have been taking advantage of every minute of it. Their 13-game streak of being favored in the playoffs dates back to when Alex Smith was their starting quarterback. The streak started in the 2017 playoffs against the Pittsburgh Steelers where they lost the game despite being a 1.5-point favorite.

Fastrack to the current day, the Chiefs are going into the AFC Championship as 7-point favorites over the Cincinnati Bengals and all signs are pointing to them moving on to the Super Bowl. One major trend that has taken place in the playoffs this season is that every winning team has covered the spread so far.

Backing this trend continuing is that the Chiefs have been one of the hottest teams against the spread as of late having covered in both of their playoff games and in eight of their last 10 games overall.

Patrick Mahomes has been able to carry this team over the years and has gone 8-2 overall in his 10 career playoff starts for the Chiefs. With the Bengals having no AFC Championship experience since 1998, they could struggle against a team that has won the last two.
