The Buffalo Bills and Cincinnati Bengals met in Week 17, a game ultimately canceled following the serious injury to Damar Hamlin. Josh Allen’s Bills and Joe Burrow’s Bengals face off again on Sunday with a trip to the AFC Championship on the line in an NFL Playoffs Divisional Round showdown in Buffalo. 

The Bengals were in control of the Week 17 primetime game when the game was halted. But that matchup was in Cincinnati; this one is in Buffalo. Regardless of locale, both teams come in red-hot, with Cincy on a nine-game winning streak and Buffalo having won eight in a row. 

Oddsmakers at NFL betting sites are giving Buffalo the edge here. The home team is posted at -5 in the latest Bengals vs. Bills odds, with an Over/Under of 48.5 points at Ohio sports betting sites

Bookies.com NFL handicapper Adam Thompson – focused on hitting over 60% of his NFL picks for a fourth-consecutive season – reveals his picks and props for the important rematch. 

Bengals vs. Bills Point Spread Pick

The Bengals may lose, but they rarely get run over with just three losses by more than a FG over their last 39 games. Plus they have an offense that can score quickly. So, too, does Buffalo, especially at home where its 32.1 ppg ranks behind only the Lions. 

Still, I’m good having Joe Burrow in my corner, down 10 in the closing minutes for that backdoor potential. That’s if they are winning in the end. The Bengals had the Bills’ number before the game was canceled. Cincy is 7-2 ATS on the road, second only to the 7-1 mark of the Giants. Take the points with the defending AFC champions. Make sure to use one of these great Ohio betting promos.

 Bengals vs. Bills Over/Under Best Bet

People look at the Bills and Bengals and think Allen and Burrow, Diggs and Chase. But these teams also rank No. 3 and No. 6, respectively, in points allowed. When it comes to totals, the Under is 6-0 in games involving these teams when they’re facing another high-powered offensive team (25+ ppg). 

Something has to give when we’re talking two teams both in the top six in scoring and scoring defense. That keeps us from putting a big play on the total. But if we’re looking to sprinkle on one side, it will be on Under. 

Bengals vs. Bills Moneyline Pick

We’re not confident enough to back Buffalo at -245 at sports betting apps. We are siding with the underdogs Bengals to cover but do we have enough confidence to lay some on Cincy +205 to win outright? Buffalo has just one home loss all year, the 33-30 overtime shocker to the Vikings. 

The last time the Bengals lost any game was back on Halloween night. Since then they’ve taken nine in a row, including wins at New England, Tampa Bay, Pittsburgh and Tennessee. Buffalo is a different animal, but we’re done discounting the Bengals. This is, after all, the defending AFC champions, and they’re likely sick of hearing about Chiefs vs. Bills as an inescapable truth. Go with Cincinnati at better than 2-to-1 odds. 

Best Bengals vs. Bills Player Props

Josh Allen, Under 44.5 Rushing Yards

Odds: +105 at DraftKings

Cincy’s defensive strength is in its run defense, and that extends to QBs. The Bengals are allowing only 12.1 ypg on the ground to quarterbacks. It may behoove Buffalo to keep throwing as well. When Allen runs for under 45 yards, the Bills are a perfect 8-0. 

Gabriel Davis, Under 56.5 Receiving Yards

Odds: -110 at BetMGM

That means more tossing for Allen, but to whom? Davis went off for six catches and 113 yards in the playoff win over the Dolphins, but that was the first time since Week 11 he’d gone for over 56 yards in a game. The Bengals rank 11th in fewest yards allowed to opposing WRs. With Stefon Diggs, Dawson Knox and ample backfield options, Davis should get some, but to expect more than usual might be a stretch.
