With the game all but out of reach late in the fourth quarter, Bills wide receiver Stefon Diggs appeared to have something to say to his QB. But at that point, the Bengals were well on their way to winning outright as +215 pregame underdogs on the moneyline.

Just Enough From Mixon

After review… it's a Cincy TD!

The Bills made a valiant effort, but Joe Mixon managed to get across the goal line to give the Bengals a 24-10 lead near the end of the third quarter that proved insurmountable. Mixon was +135 as an anytime TD scorer, and he had also soared past his rushing total of 46.5 by this point.

The best highlights of the day in Bengals vs Bills have had little to do with the action on the field. Instead, they’ve been the glimpses of Damar Hamlin in a suite at the game, cheering on Buffalo.

Upon Further Review: A Huge Defensive Play

Matt Milano came up clutch to prevent Ja’Marr Chase from scoring his second TD. The ensuing field goal made the Bengals -2.5 on the spread, with the live total set at 51.5.

Yet by keeping Cincinnati to a field goal, Milano helped the pregame under (48.5) cash after it seemed like we’d be in for a track meet.

Very Sneaky, Sir

Josh Allen sneaks it in to get the Bills on the board 🔥

One good QB sneak deserved another. After sneaking for a first on fourth down in Bengals territory, Josh Allen kept it himself again at the goal line to get the Bills on the board and cash as a +150 anytime TD scorer.

Hayden Hurst was +340 as an anytime TD scorer, and he snagged the Bengals’ second touchdown to open the game, giving Cincy a 14-0 lead.

Meanwhile, Joe Burrow was -140 to go over 1.5 passing TDs, a bet that cashed with ease before we hit the first quarter break. His passing yardage total for the game was 278.5, which he came up short of with the Bengals able to run the ball at will late.

Giving Chase

Burrow to Chase is AUTOMATIC in the #NFLPlayoffs.
