Sunday 11:40pm: Cincinnati Bengals @ Kansas City Chiefs – Kansas City -7 & Tyreek Hill Anytime Touchdown Scorer

TV: Sky Sports Main Event and Sky Sports NFL

This kind feels like an easier game for Kansas City than last week against the Bills. The Chiefs are a much more talented team than this Bengals outfit and with Patrick Mahomes they have only lost two of their 10 playoff games – and both of those were to some guy called Tom Brady.

Joe Burrow and the Bengals offence have done well to get this far but the Chiefs will be hoping to bottle them up with a fierce pass rush and zone coverage. They will be looking to add to the nine times Burrow was sacked last week by the Titans as well and if they can get to him the Bengals will find it hard to even keep it close on Sunday.

The Bengals did win the week 17 matchup between these two teams, but the playoff Chiefs are a different kettle of fish and I’m all in them to wipe the board with this Cincinnati team.

We all know what KC receiver Tyreek Hill can do. He’s already gone off in the playoffs for 200 yards and two touchdowns. With a Bengals defence that is not quite as good as the Bills it’s hard not to see Hill score for the third straight game.

Deebo Samuel San Francisco 49ers

 

Sunday 11:40pm: San Francisco 49ers @ LA Rams – San Francisco to Win & Deebo Samuel Anytime Touchdown Scorer

TV: Sky Sports Main Event and Sky Sports NFL

The Niners are coming back into LA flying after an impressive win in a snowy Lambeau Field against Green Bay. San Francisco has been a bit of a bogey team for the Rams in the last few of years, especially under the tutelage of coach Kyle Shanahan.

He’s won his last six games against LA head coach Sean McVay and his Rams team, and that run includes a dramatic overtime victory at SoFi Stadium which allowed the 49ers to sneak into the playoffs this season.

It’s all on the Rams to come up with an approach that’ll change the recent record between the two sides because San Francisco will continue to pound the ball on the ground if they can. That’s likely to still garner success on Sunday as the Rams defence is normally light in the box and more set up to stop high power passing offences.

I’m sticking with the underdog 49ers to win this and make their second Super Bowl in three years.

Deebo Samuel has been the biggest shining light for the Niners on offence this year, probably because he has been part of both the run and pass game.

In his two games against the Rams this season he has three touchdowns, he has almost amassed 100 yards receiving in both game and added another 30 on the ground. If he can get anywhere near that again he’ll be a good bet to get the 49ers on the scoreboard.
