Betting On Cincinnati Bengals To Win The Super Bowl
Betting on the Cincinnati Bengals to win the Super Bowl is not something that is done often. In the 2019-2020 season, the Bengals have been, bluntly, atrocious, putting up the worst record in the league. Now, you might be asking, why is this page even here? They had the worst record in the league, they obviously aren’t winning the Super Bowl. However, that doesn’t stop the crazed fans from betting on the Bengals to win the Super Bowl.
The news for the Bengals isn’t all bad, however, as their terrible record gives them the number one pick in the draft, which is absolutely loaded. The Bengals are expected to select LSU quarterback Joe Burrow, the Heisman Trophy winner, record-breaker, and National Championship winner. As of right now, betting on the Bengals to win the Super Bowl might be a bad idea, but once they add the talent of Burrow, the sky is the limit for the Cincinnati Bengals.

They originally opened up at +10000 and have seen a tremendous fall as they have lost a good bit of games thus far. They are clearly in a rebuilding state now which is the reason their Super Bowl odds are where they are.
Like their odds to win the Super Bowl, their AFC Championship odds are also seen as super longshot at +50000 which are the third-longest in the conference. Against the AFC this season, the Bengals have a well below .500 record which certainly plays a role in their longshot odds. As long as they keep dropping their conference games, they will remain down low.
Unfortunately for the Bengals, they are the owners of the longest odds in the division and that is thanks to them sharing the AFC North with the undefeated Pittsburgh Steelers and the Baltimore Ravens. Their odds opened up at +8000 but as the season has gone on and they continued to lose their games, their odds continued to fall.

2020 Bengals Player Props
The Bengals are looking to turn the page from their awful 2019 season and turn things around under their rookie quarterback, Joe Burrow. The team is also getting back A.J. Green as their top receiver along with Tyler Boyd who is coming off a good year. Joe Mixon will also look to have a bounce-back year as he was not able to get things rolling during the 2019 campaign.
Joe burrow has some very high expectations for his rookie season. He is fresh off of a National Championship win at LSU and is looking to stay hot. Online sportsbooks have his season stats set at 22.5 touchdowns with the over favored at 3749.5 passing yards with both sides of the line even.
After missing the entirety of the 2019 season due to an injury, A.J. Green is looking to have a major comeback year and bettors and fans should expect nothing less from the star receiver. NFL betting sites are banking on him having a strong comeback as his season totals are set at 7.5 touchdowns, 975.5 yards which are both favored to be under as well as 69.5 receptions with both sides even.
After stepping into the number one option role, Tyler Boyd out up a great season as he had career highs across the board. He put up 1,046 yards with five touchdowns on 90 receptions. With A.J. Green back in the loop, NFL betting sites have his season totals listed at 5.5 touchdowns and 950.5 yards which are both even on both sides along with 84.5 receptions with the under favored.
Some might say that Joe Mixon had himself a forgetful season. Mixon’s numbers from the 2019 season were 1,137 yards with just five touchdowns. Both of those numbers are down from last year as well. Online sportsbooks have taken that into consideration when setting his season totals at 1149.5 rushing yards with the over and under even.
