We’ve got an early look at the point spread, total, and moneyline odds for the AFC Championship matchup between the Bengals and Chiefs.

AFC Championship Preview | Will Cincinnati be the one to snatch Kansas City’s Crown?

The Cincinnati Bengals and Kansas City Chiefs are officially set to face off in the 2022 AFC Championship game after an exciting Divisional round slate. The AFC Championship will take place on Sunday, January 30th with kick off at 3:05 p.m. ET. It will air on CBS.

The Bengals made it here with a big upset over the AFC’s No. 1 seed, the Titans, who returned to action Saturday following a first-round bye. Rookie kicker Evan McPherson came up clutch, successfully kicking a 52-yard field goal as the clock expired in the fourth quarter to bring them to their first conference championship since the 1988 season.

The Bills-Chiefs game ended in the most dramatic fashion, as Josh Allen and Patrick Mahomes traded multiple scores to total a stunning 25 points in the final two minutes of regulation. A field goal by Harrison Butker sent the game into overtime, where Mahomes executed a flawless drive ending with a Travis Kelce touchdown. Unfortunately, the NFL’s overtime rules in place robbed us of a potential Josh Allen comeback.
