If you’re not satisfied with just predicting the outcome of the two scheduled encounters, here are five specific bets that might be worth a look, according to odds from the Mise-o-jeu platform.

Total points: Cincinnati v. Kansas City

Nobody expects a trench war or a defensive duel between the Kansas City Chiefs and the Cincinnati Bengals. The odds of 1.75 to run over 54.5 look particularly attractive to bettors, who can expect a touchdown contest between Joe Burrow and Patrick Mahomes.

What half?

The recent NFL playoffs have seen dramatic comebacks and late-game offensive surges. It is as advantageous for the game between the Bengals and the Chiefs (2.00) as for the matchup between the Los Angeles Rams and the San Francisco 49ers (1.95) to bet that more points will be scored in second half than during the first 30 minutes of the match.

Passing yards

The 49ers’ game plan was simple against the Green Bay Packers: trust the ground game to limit Jimmy Garropolo’s costly mistakes. With the fearsome Jalen Ramsey and Aaron Donald stalking the Niners quarterback, it’s hard to imagine the Franciscan team won’t replicate this strategy. The odds offered by Mise-o-jeu for a game under 230.5 yards from “Jimmy G”, of 1.75, should be considered.

Duel of receivers

Rookie Ja’Marr Chase continues to impress for the Bengals, but can he repeat his exploits against the Chiefs?

The duel proposed by Mise-o-jeu for the number of receiving yards, which opposes him to Tyreek Hill, could be to the advantage of this one for a simple reason: the defense of the Chiefs will be devoted to stopping Chase, while that of the Bengals will also have to monitor Travis Kelce, Mecole Hardman and Byron Pringle. Hill is considered underdog by Mise-o-jeu, with odds of 1.95.

Longest placement of the match

The 49ers are used to tight, low-scoring duels. Indeed, four of their last five meetings have resulted in a difference of six points or less. We can imagine that they will often be cautious in a fourth down situation and that they will try to maximize each of their possessions by scoring placements.

The odds of 1.75 offered if they succeed more than 1.5 placement in the meeting is thus rather attractive for bettors.
