The Chiefs and the Bengals continued their rivalry Sunday, though it’s been awfully one-sided thus far.
Cincinnati moved to 3-0 against Kansas City over the past two seasons, which means Joe Burrow has never lost to Patrick Mahomes in their NFL careers.
The third-year quarterback was decisive against the Chiefs defense Sunday and came up with a clutch third-and-11 pass to Tee Higgins after the two-minute warning to ice the game.
The 27-24 victory was a statement win for Burrow and the Bengals, but it was a big loss for Chiefs bettors.
At DraftKings Sportsbook, 80% of bets, along with 82% of the handle, were on Kansas City to cover as two-point favorites, and 75% of bets, along with 78% of the handle, were on Chiefs moneyline at -130, according to communications associate Cassie Buontempo. At BetMGM, most of the tickets for Sunday’s Week 13 slate were on Kansas City to cover as 2.5-point favorites at 76%, and it commanded the third-most of the handle at 75%, according to data analyst John Ewing.
The win also shook up the AFC playoff standings, with the Buffalo Bills taking control over the No. 1 seed over Kansas City.
