Betting market: The cover kings — aka the 6-0 against-the-spread Chiefs — are getting nearly 80% of bets at the time of writing (see live data here).

They haven’t given anyone a reason to fade them, especially if you don’t have to lay a touchdown.

There’s been some buyback on Cincy when the line has reached six, causing it to site in the dead zone at 5.5.

More than 70% of bets are taking the over despite this being the highest total of the week. Interestingly enough, it’s actually dropped between a half point and a point depending on the book.

Two bet signals on the under were triggered at Sports Insights, which explains the reverse line movement. — Mark Gallant

Trends to know: The over/under opened at 58.5 points. This would be just the ninth over/under of 58 or more points since 2003. The over hit in all previous eight games by an average of 8.5 points. John Ewing
