Bengals Still Longshots Despite Burrow’s Positive Projections

  • Joe Burrow has season totals of 4200.5 yards and 26.5 touchdowns.
  • The Cincinnati Bengals win total is set at 6.5 with the Over having -130 odds.
  • The Bengals are +500 betting longshots to make the playoffs and -800 favorites to finish last in the AFC North.

CINCINNATIJoe Burrow is thought to be the potential saving grace for a Cincinnati Bengals franchise that hasn’t won a playoff game since 1990. His rookie season was cut short due to an injury, but sportsbooks believe there could be a bounce-back spot for both Burrow and the Bengals.

Joe Burrow’s Season Totals

Joe Burrow was able to record 2688 yards, 13 touchdowns and five interceptions on a 65.3% clip in his 10 games in the 2020 season before his injury. NFL betting sites are expecting Burrow to build on his rookie season with a successful second year.

Joe Burrow Passing Yards Totals

  • Over 4200.5 -130
  • Under 4200.5 EVEN

Joe Burrow Passing TDs Total

  • Over 26.5 -115
  • Under 26.5 -115

Only seven quarterbacks have a higher yardage total than Burrow for the upcoming year and he is on par with Russell Wilson and Kirk Cousins’ totals. He was on pace for what could’ve been a historic rookie quarterback season, considering he averaged more yards per game than MVP-winner Aaron Rodgers albeit in a smaller sample size.

If Burrow matches his 2020 output he should be able to go north of his mark in both categories, but especially in passing yards.

Cincinnati Bengals Season Projections

Despite Burrow being slated to have one of the best statistical seasons in the league, the individual success isn’t expected to translate to the team.

The Cincinnati Bengals have had five straight seasons with a sub .500 record and it seems as if sports betting sites are anticipating the trend to continue.

Cincinnati Bengals 2021/22 Total Wins

  • Over 6.5 -130
  • Under 6.5 EVEN

A win total of either six or seven games would likely put the Bengals towards the bottom of their division. In fact, sportsbooks are confidently placing Cincinnati at the bottom of the AFC North.

AFC North - Team to Finish 4th

  • Cincinnati Bengals -800
  • Pittsburgh Steelers +550
  • Cleveland Browns +2000
  • Baltimore Ravens +2900

Naturally, this would make the Bengals’ odds of making the playoffs very slim. They haven’t made the playoffs since 2015 and haven’t won a playoff game since 1990 and things aren’t looking any better in 2021.

Cincinnati Bengals - To Make The Playoffs

  • Yes +500
  • No -900

As a quarterback, Burrow's performance will already be largely correlated with the team's success, but he may need to go above and beyond expectations to lead this team to the playoffs in his first full season as a starter.
