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, especially in recent years. The Bengals have made the playoffs 14 times in their teams history but are currently in the middle of a playoff drought as they have not made it back in the last five years. That is due to a lack of consistency that they have encountered over the years throughout all parts of their team.
There is very little to be excited about on this Bengals team. They do have one of the more promising young quarterbacks in Joe Burrow, a quality young receiver in Tee Higgins and a well above average running back in Joe Mixon. However, that is basically it and until these young players come to their full potential and the team gets more help, they will continue their current playoff drought. Adding on to their playoff drought, when they have made the playoffs, they have not made it far as they have not made the AFC Championship game since 1988 when they last won it.
For those who want to find Bengals odds on things more than just the Super Bowl, online sportsbooks also offer those odds as well. Between the history of the Bengals in the NFL playoffs and the online sportsbooks, fans and bettors can get a great understanding of where the Bengals have been as well as where they stand moving forward. Taking the Super Bowl 56 odds on the Bengals may be quite the payout if it hits, but a lot needs to happen for that bet to cash.

What Are Cincinnati Bengals Odds To Win The Super Bowl?
Saying that the Cincinnati Bengals have struggled over the years would be an understatement as they have been atrocious. Since 2015, they have not finished with an above .500 record which certainly plays a role on their Super Bowl odds being so low on the odds board. However, they have made the Super Bowl twice before in 1982 and 1989 in which they lost both times.
Along with the Bengals ongoing playoff drought, they have not made the AFC Championship game since way back in 1981 and 1988 in which they won both of those games. Being that they have not made the AFC Championship game since and are looking like they won't be making it any time soon, their AFC Championship odds will remain towards the bottom.
The Bengals are currently sitting on nine AFC North division championships with their latest one coming back in their last playoff appearance back in 2015. Since then, they have either finished in third or fourth place in the division and with the competition rising amongst the AFC North teams, online sportsbooks have the AFC North division odds for the Bengals sitting behind the rest.

Betting On The Bengals Draft Odds
One option for the Cincinnati Bengals to try and rebuild their team is through the NFL Draft. The Bengals are currently sitting on eight draft picks in the 2021 NFL Draft. Those picks include a pick in rounds one through six and two seventh-round draft picks as well. With that said, they can use these picks to help with their rebuild and become Super Bowl contenders sometime in the future.
When Will Bengals Fans Be Able To Bet At Ohio Sportsbooks?
No land-based sportsbooks in Ohio are regulated or available at the moment but there have been plenty of attempts to change this. With neighboring states having no issues taking Super Bowl odds, Bengals fans will have to wait before betting on the Super Bowl at an Ohio sportsbook. Fortunately, there are online sports betting options available at NFL sportsbooks like Bovada, which offers all of the same features that a land-based sportsbook would offer.
2021 Bengals Player Props
The Bengals are looking to turn the page from their awful 2019 and 2020 season and turn things around under their quarterback, Joe Burrow. With notable names like A.J. Green, Tyler Boyd, and Joe Mixon, player props on the Bengals aren't hidden on sports betting sites. These can be a great indicator for season and game success, and if one notices a trend, they can beat out the changing Super Bowl odds on the Bengals.
Cincinnati Bengals Playoff History
The Cincinnati Bengals were established back in 1967. Since they were established, they have been able to muscle in 14 playoff appearances, 9 division championships and 2 conference championships. They do not have any Super Bowl victories but have been to two Super Bowls.
Bengals Playoff Appearances
In the Bengals 53 years of existence, they have been able to make the playoffs on 14 different occasions. Their first head coach, Paul Brown, has led them to three playoff appearances with their first one coming in 1970 then again in 1973 and again in 1975. Forrest Gregg then led them to two back to back playoff appearances in 1981 and 1982. The Sam Wyche era only saw two playoff appearances in his seven years of service in 1988 and 1990. The Marvin Lewis era is where things really took off for them as they saw 7 playoff appearance from 2003 to the present day in which 2015 was their most recent one.
Bengals Division Championships
Of the Bengals 14 playoff appearances, they saw 9 of them as division champions. The Bengals first two division championships came in their first two playoff appearances in 1970 and 1973. Forrest Gregg was only able to lead them to one more division championship that came in 1981. Sam Wyche was able to lead them to two more in 1988 and 1990. The remaining four came in 2005, 2009, 2013 and 2015 with Marvin Lewis.
Bengals Conference Championships
The Bengals have not been very efficient when turning their playoff appearances and division championships into conference championships as they only have two conference championships to their name. Their first one came in 1981 under coach Gregg and their second came in 1988 under coach Wyche.
In their 1981 AFC Championship game, they defeated the San Diego Chargers with a final score of 27-7 after being seen as 4.5-point favorites going into the game. Their second AFC Championship in 1988, they faced off with the Buffalo Bills and defeated them 21-10. The Bengals again had no problems covering the spread as they were 4-point favorites here as well.
Bengals Super Bowl Victories
Given that the Bengals have won two conference championships, they have been to two Super Bowls but have not been able to cash in on any of them. The two coaches to lead them to each appearance were Forrest Gregg in 1982 and Sam Wyche in 1988 and both times they faced off against the San Francisco 49ers.
Their first time around for Super Bowl XVI, they were defeated with a final score of 26-21. They went into the game being seen as just 1-point underdogs and clearly did not cover the spread. Their quarterback at the time was Ken Anderson who went for 300 yards and two touchdowns in the game but also threw two interceptions.
In 1988 for Super Bowl XXIII, the Niners took them down but this time by four points with a 20-16 final score. The Bengals did in fact cover the spread here as they went into the game being seen as 6-point underdogs and lost by just 4. Their quarterback in this one was Boomer Esiason who went for just 144 yards and no touchdown.
