Cincinnati Bengals (3-0 SU, 3-0 ATS)
Cincinnati won a wild affair 28-24, against AFC North division rival Baltimore in Week 3, thanks to a stellar effort from quarterback Andy Dalton and wide receiver A.J. Green.

For his part, Green hauled in 10 catches for a whopping 227 yards and two touchdowns. Cincinnati scored two touchdowns in the final period to get the win while shutting down Baltimore’s rushing attack to the tune of 36 total yards on 18 team carries.
Cincinnati is ranked second in total offense, sixth in passing, eighth in rushing and seventh in scoring (28.3 ppg). Defensively, the Bengals are ranked fifth against the run and seventh in points allowed (18.7 ppg).
Kansas City Chiefs (1-2 SU, 1-2 ATS)
Kansas City lost its second straight game by falling to Green Bay 38-28 as a 5.5-point road dog in Week 3. Veteran quarterback Alex Smith completed 24 of 40 passes for 290 yards with one touchdown and one interception, but the Chiefs couldn’t stop Packers all-world signal-caller Aaron Rodgers from throwing for 335 yards and an insane five touchdowns. Kansas City is ranked a surprising eighth in scoring (26.3 ppg) but hasn’t been able to stop running water in allowing 29.7 points per game defensively (29th).
Game Analysis: 58 percent of the betting public likes Cincinnati to cover the spread at home and normally I’d agree with Cincinnati clearly being the better team right now.
However, I’ve got a funny feeling that the desperate Chiefs are going to march into Cincinnati and give a great effort to come out with the ATS win at the very least – and the possible road upset. The Chiefs are 9-4 ATS in their last 13 games against their AFC counterparts while Cincinnati has gone 1-4 ATS in their last five games in the month of October.
66 percent of the betting public likes the Over, but again, I’m going against public opinion here. The Under is 6-2 in Kansas City’s last eight games following an ATS loss and 8-4 n Cincinnati’s last dozen games, not to mention, 6-1 in the last seven meetings between these conference rivals.
The Pick: Kansas City 20 Cincinnati 17
