“If ‘Honey Badger’ (Tyrann Mathieu) isn’t available (concussion protocol), that secondary Chiefs in the back end isn’t great. It’s one thing not to be great, it’s it’s another to have the Bills’ receivers wide open.

“The Kansas City Chiefs are the better team and they’re at home, so they’ll win, but I’ll take the points.”

TAKE: Bengals (+7 at FOX Bet) will lose by less than 7 points (or win outright)

Pick via FOX Sports Betting Analyst Geoff Schwartz

“The Chiefs are much better, more talented and with Patrick Mahomes they’ve only lost two of 10 playoff games.

“These games were both for Tom Brady. The Bengals don’t have Tom Brady. The Bengals offense can be bottled up with a ferocious passing rush and zone coverage. Leaders would be stupid to do anything other than that. I think more is definitely at stake here. But I take the Chiefs to win and cover.”

TAKE: Chiefs (-7 at FOX Bet) wins by more than 7 points

San Francisco 49ers @ Los Angeles Rams (6:30 p.m. ET Sunday, FOX)

Point spread: Rams -3.5 (Rams favored to win by more than 3.5 points, otherwise 49ers cover)
Money line: Rams -188 favorites to win (bet $10 to win $15.32 in total); 49ers + 160 underdogs up for grabs (bet $10 to win $26 total)
Over/under total score: 46.5 points scored by both teams combined

Pick via Colin Cowherd of FOX Sports

“The Niners are kind of in the head of the Rams. Kyle Shanahan and the 49ers feel like they’re good in a street fight with those guys. The 49ers defensive front plays like the Super Bowl team of two years ago I think the Rams’ offensive front is thinner than powerful and can be pushed around.

“I think the Niners are going to mess it up. The pressure from the Niners got to Aaron Rodgers and he was very shy. A lot of McVay’s offense is based on timing and the Niners seem to disrupt that. That’s why this game for me, I like the 49ers and the hook as a right side.”

TAKE: 49ers (+3.5 at FOX Bet) will lose by less than 3.5 points (or win outright)

Pick via FOX Sports Betting Analyst Geoff Schwartz

“Kyle Shanahan has beaten Sean McVay six times in a row now. The Niners are more physical than the Rams at the line of scrimmage in every matchup. It’s as simple as that.

“I’m going to take the Niners here to cover the 3.5, but I think the Rams win outright. The hook is important in this NFC West rivalry game, and I’ll be happy to use it to my advantage. These teams know so well, and it’s up to the Rams not to fight on the stretch. It’s going to be a close game. Rams win, Niners cover.

TAKE: 49ers (+3.5 at FOX Bet) will lose by less than 3.5 points (or win outright)
