Two of the best teams of the current NFL season will face each other next Monday, the second day of the new year. The Bills and Bengals, together, have 23 wins, a number that scares, but shows a little of the great game to come.
Both teams have already secured a place in the playoffs with two rounds in advance, due to the great performance they had in their divisions. The Bills secured first place in the AFC East, as they have four more wins than the Dolphins – 2nd place. The Bengals are not yet confirmed as first, but they have already qualified for the playoffs with 11 wins in 15 games so far.
The last confrontation between the Bengals and Bills took place only in 2019. On that occasion, the Bills won the game by 21-17, playing as hosts. Will the result be repeated this time? Follow our analysis of this match and find out our main tip for the match.

Where Can I Watch it?
Why Bet the Bengals?
The Bengals haven’t known what it’s like to lose since October. The team’s last defeat came on October 31, when they faced the Browns away from home, and lost by 32-13.
Since then, the team has been running over opponents, at home and away, by a margin of points always greater than two. The team now lives a sequence of seven straight victories, which puts fear in any opponent.
In the last 15 games against the Bills, the Bengals have won only 6. This unique game on Monday will be the ideal opportunity to reduce that advantage and start a new streak, at the beginning of the new year.
Why Bet the Bills?
The Bills are playing phenomenally and many experts point to the team as one of the favorites to reach and win the Super Bowl. If Monday’s opponent is on a seven-game winning streak, the Bills are not far behind. The team has won its last six games and looks unbeatable at this point.
With a place in the playoffs assured, the Bills will not have the obligation to make the best match of their lives, but beating a huge opponent like the Bengals will be very important for the continuity of the team’s momentum in the tournament.
Final Betting Analysis: Bengals vs. Bills
The main bookmakers show very similar odds for this match, but understand that the Bills have a better chance of unbalancing the game. Buffalo has won 12 so far and has been playing top-notch football. For these reasons, we believe in the Bills’ victory in this game.
Our guess is for the Bills to win.
If you put $100 into the Bills’ win, you could get $86 back for a total payout of $186.
