Christmas has come and gone and we are coming off a few more wins last week to add to a fantastic season.

This game features Josh Allen and Joe Burrow who have accounted for a combined 78 touchdowns this season. To put that into perspective, it ties the most combined touchdowns for two quarterbacks entering a game in NFL history.

The 12-3 Bills and 11-4 Bengals are both in contention for the AFC’s number one seed which further influences the importance of this contest. The NFL has struggled with primetime matchups this season but they definitely got this one right. The teams have combined for a 13-game win streak and are both playing for home field.

Buffalo Bills Betting Outlook
The Bills are sitting at the top of the AFC and need to knock off the Bengals and Patriots to have the playoffs go through Orchard Park. The importance of the one seed can not be overstated as Josh Allen holds a 3-0 playoff record at home and 0-3 on the road. Buffalo clinched their third straight AFC East title a week ago and strangely enough, for a team not that far removed from a 17-year playoff drought, divisional championships feel like an afterthought.
The vibes around the Bills team and fans points to one goal. That goal becomes more realistic with a win in Cincinnati on Monday night. This matchup is the closest a regular season game can be to having a playoff feel but for the Bills to pull this game out on the road, their 4th ranked offense will need to score upwards of 30 points. Pairing a strong offense with a stout defense, the Bills have all the makings of a Super Bowl team and to be completely honest, they have not played to their full potential since September, which should be a scary thought for the rest of the league.
Cincinnati Bengals Betting Outlook
The Bengals are winners of seven straight and hold the leagues best record ATS. With a 12-3 record against the spread which includes 5-1 at home, this Bengals team who made the Super Bowl a season ago is poised for another run. Joe Burrow has arguably the best weapons in the league to work with and when he utilizes the trio of Tee Higgins, Ja’Marr Chase, and Tyler Boyd to their full potential, the Bengals become a juggernaut.
Bills – Bengals might be the best MNF game EVER.
The two teams have combined for 23 wins, tied for the most (SF/DEN '97) EVER since we started playing on Monday nights in 1970.@NFLResearch

To me this game will come down to who can score touchdowns in the red zone. Settling for field goals against either one of these teams is not a recipe for success and we have a true clash in the Bengals 5th ranked red zone offense against the Bills 1st ranked red zone defense. This game has a ton of talking points but for the Bengals, if they can continue their consistent play on both sides of the ball, their home field advantage could propel them to a what would be a massive victory.
Bills vs Bengals Pick and Prediction
I know I’ve made it well known by now but this game is massive. When you sit down to find betting angles, there are arguments for and against just about every bet, which explains the 1-point spread. One thing is for sure, both of these quarterbacks like the spotlight and because of that, I am going to the prop market. Josh Allen knows when to turn it on and the time is now. His passing yards prop is sitting at 251.5 with -110 odds to the over. This over is a no brainer to me. With this game being as close to a playoff game as you can find I went back and had a look at Allen’s playoff results. In six playoff games, Allen averages 286.3 passing yards per game. Josh will shine in primetime. Lock it in and enjoy what should be a fantastic game.
Best Bet: Josh Allen Over 251.5 Passing Yards (-110)
