The Cincinnati Bengals will face the Kansas City Chiefs in the AFC championship game for the second time in a row. The highly-anticipated matchup between the two teams will take place at the Chiefs' Arrowhead Stadium on Sunday.
According to DraftKings, the Bengals will enter the game with the third-best odds among the playoffs' four remaining teams to win the Super Bowl. They are behind the Chiefs and Philadelphia Eagles.
Cincinnati has odds of +260 to go all the way and win the Lombardi Trophy. Meanwhile, Kansas City is at +250, while Philadelphia is at +255.
Finally, the San Francisco 49ers are considered the least favorites at +310.
However, as Chiefs star Patrick Mahomes is dealing with an ankle injury, the Bengals may have a better chances of getting to the Super Bowl. It would be back-to-back Super Bowl appearances for Cincinnati if it beats Kansas City on Sunday.
How have the Cincinnati Bengals fared this season?
The Cincinnati Bengals finished the regular season as AFC North champions with a 12-4 record. Zac Taylor's team then got the better of the Baltimore Ravens in the wild-card round.
The Bengals then took down Josh Allen and the Buffalo Bills in their divisional-round matchup. Cincinnati quarterback Joe Burrow threw for 242 yards and two touchdowns on 23 passes.
The quarterback has led Cincinnati to 10 consecutive wins.
The Bengals will also get a massive confidence boost from the fact that they beat the Chiefs in last season's championship game. More so, Burrow has an impressive 3-0 record against Patrick Mahomes' Kansas City.
The AFC title game on Sunday has all the makings of a classic. While the Chiefs will be sweating on Mahomes' health, Burrow looks like a man on a mission.
However, playoff football has witnessed some unexpected twists and turns along the way. We will wait to see which of the two teams progresses to the Super Bowl.
