It really is the best do-over ever.
It is also a perfect offer for this specific MNF game between Cincinnati and Buffalo.
In terms of a pure tossup, this may be the best Week 17 example on the schedule. This also means that how you view this game should be how you bet it.
I will give some context, sure, but how you think Buffalo’s zone defense matches up against the passing game of Cincinnati is up to you. If you have a good answer for whether the Bills can get enough pressure with just its front four in this game. . . that is great. Or, if you feel good that the Bengal’s offensive line will actually give Joe Burrow time to throw, that is great, too. One of those things has to happen.
I would just make sure you felt good that the Bills — or Bengals — aren’t going to hide things because they most certainly would have to play again in a month, almost regardless of this outcome, to get to the Super Bowl.
You should know that if the Bills win out, they will get a bye and home field advantage for the playoffs. It would mean that Cincinnati or Kansas City would have to knock the other out before a potential AFC championship game, also in Buffalo. So that is pretty important if you are Buffalo.
The game is still not a throwaway for Cincinnati. If the Bengals win, they now have the tie-breaker for the No. 2 seed, and the Bills drop to third. Both teams are behind Kansas City, and so a re-match of this MNF game would become a potential second round playoff game, and back in Cincinnati. It would seem to be more beneficial to Cincy than being on the road against the Chiefs in round two. It would also simply shift the Chiefs, potentially, to the AFC Championship game — or if somehow Kansas City is upset, moves the title game to Ohio.
The two teams could both be looking to show everything or nothing. If you think one of Buffalo or Cincinnati is going to win, bet that! If you are right, you won your bet. Your bet was not based on the advice of an article on the internet.
If you don’t win, you can blame this article.
If you do want my advice to confirm your thoughts or give you a valid excuse, I will bet on the Bengals. I think this is a momentum swinging, swagger game. And one that this team wants to win.
