Previewing The NFL Betting Odds For The Bengals 2021 Season

  • The Cincinnati Bengals have +2000 odds to win the AFC North, by far the longest odds of any team.
  • The Bengals win total is set at 6.5 with the OVER being a -130 betting favorite.
  • The team has +430 odds to make the playoffs and is a +12500 longshot to win the Super Bowl.

CINCINNATI – The Cincinnati Bengals franchise hasn’t won a playoff game since 1990 and if the betting odds are to be believed, that unfortunate streak will continue at least one more season.

Cincinnati Bengals 2020 Season

Entering the 2020 season, the Cincinnati Bengals had a lot of hope that Joe Burrow would help turn around the franchise. Unfortunately, he tore his ACL midway through the season but is expected to be at full health and ready for Week 1 of the 2021 campaign.

Burrow showed a lot of promise throwing for 268.8 yards per game which was the seventh-most in the NFL. The team attempted to build around him as the franchise believed they found their quarterback of the future.

Bengals Offseason Acquisitions

  • Ja’Marr Chase, WR
  • Riley Reiff, OL
  • Jackson Carman, OL
  • Joseph Ossai, LB
  • Ricardo Allen, S
  • Mike Hilton, CB
  • Chidobe Awuzie, CB
  • B.J. Hill, DT
  • Larry Ogunjobi, DT
  • Trey Hendrickson, DE
  • Cameron Sample, DE

The team primarily focused on building the defense but attempted to add some valuable offensive lineman help as well as the addition of Burrow’s favorite collegiate target, Ja’Marr Chase.

Bengals 2021 Season Odds

The Bengals have missed the playoffs in each of the last five seasons and have not won a playoff game since 1990. NFL betting sites are not expecting too much to change for the 2021-2022 NFL season.

Cincinnati Bengals - To Make The Playoffs

  • Yes +430
  • No -725

Despite holding such long odds to make the playoffs, the season isn’t expected to be a total waste as the team is favored to win seven games which would tie the franchise’s best season since 2017.

Cincinnati Bengals 2021-2022 Total Wins

  • OVER 6.5 -130
  • UNDER 6.5 EVEN

However, in the tough AFC North, seven wins doesn’t do much good. Sportsbooks are expecting the Bengals to finish last in the division for what would be the fourth consecutive year.

AFC North Team to Finish Last

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

Improvement doesn’t always translate into success and that seems to be the case for Cincinnati going into the 2021 season.
