Caesars Ohio Monday Night Football preview
This week’s Monday Night Football game between the Buffalo Bills and the Cincinnati Bengals kicks off at 8:30 p.m. ET at Paycor Stadium in Cincinnati. The matchup could hardly be better, with star QBs Joe Burrow and Josh Allen going head-to-head in pursuit of the No. 1 seed in the AFC.
The Bills have now won six straight, having most recently beaten the Chicago Bears 35-13 on Christmas Eve in Chicago. The Bengals, meanwhile, sit third in the AFC right now, behind both the Bills and the Chiefs. To secure the No. 1 seed, Cincinnati would need to win against Buffalo on Monday night and then beat Baltimore next week, while hoping that Kansas City falters. The Bengals have won seven straight games, though in their last outing they nearly fumbled a 22-0 lead against the New England Patriots, who came back to make it 22-18.
The Bills are 1.5-point favorites going into Monday night’s game, with moneyline odds of Buffalo -125, Cincinnati -105. The over/under is 49.5 points. Caesars also has prop and parlay options, including odds on the first player to score a touchdown, with Joe Mixon (+460), Ja’Marr Chase (+550) and Devin Singletary (+660) favored.
