Week 13 of the 2022-23 NFL season is already underway and with it, we will have a Sunday full of extremely exciting games. Without going too far, it should be the Sunday with the most interesting games of the entire season, as we will see clashes between teams that have played a great season and are close to getting their pass to the postseason.
The fight in the different divisions of the league is getting tighter and tighter now that we are only 5 weeks away from the end of the regular season, so getting a victory becomes much more important for all teams.
The historical record of this matchup puts the Bengals dominating the series with a 17-14 record. But, most notably, they have met twice in 2022, most recently in last season’s conference finals, where the Bengals cut short the Chiefs’ dream of returning to the Super Bowl.

Why Bet the Chiefs
The Chiefs, the team that leads the NFL’s AFC division, look to extend their 5-game winning streak when they visit Paul Brown Stadium to face the Bengals, in what would be a rematch of last season’s AFC championship game.
The Chiefs are coming into this game at a high point of the season, and they join the Bills and Eagles as strong candidates to win this season’s championship trophy. Reaching the Playoffs this season is only a matter of time for Patrick Mahomes and his teammates.
Kansas City comes into Week 13 on the heels of a 26-10 victory over the Los Angeles Rams. In this game, Kansas City scored up to 3 touchdowns, 1 in each quarter.
There is no doubt that the most important player for the Chiefs is the best quarterback in the league, Patrick Mahomes, and the 27-year-old Texan has impressive stats of 292/442 pass completions for 66.1%, with 3,585 yards (far more than any other quarterback in the league), 29 touchdowns and only 8 interceptions.
While the Chiefs also have a great ground game led by Isiah Pacheco and Clyde Edwards-Helaire, Mahomes is in charge of every team’s offense.
Why Bet the Bengals
On the other hand, we have Cincinnati Bengals, a team that wants to end the curse of second place in a Super Bowl, which is called runner-up hangover, where teams that lose the Super Bowl game, have a fateful following season.
This year, the Bengals have maintained the high level of play that took them to the Super Bowl game last season, but they had a very confusing and complicated start to the season, something they have been straightening out in the last few weeks.
The Bengals come into this game on a streak of 3 consecutive victories, which helped them to tie for first place in the AFC North and thus, get much closer to the goal of qualifying for the playoffs this season.
The Bengals are coming off a very good away win in their last game against the Titans, with a score of 20-16.
Like the Chiefs, the Bengals rely heavily on the offensive play of Joe Burrow, another of the league’s great quarterbacks who averages 68.2% in pass completions, 278/409 for 3,160 yards, 23 touchdowns, and 8 interceptions.
But, Joe Mixon and his carries have also been fundamental to the Bengals’ awakening in recent weeks.
