The Bengals are the post-season NFL darlings, overcoming significant odds to land their first Super Bowl in more than 20 years and almost clinching a nasty win over the Rams. After failure, WynnBET Sportsbook Lists Cincinnati at +1200 won the Super Bowl in 2022 as anxious bettors bought an improved roster and another leap from Joe Burrow to lead the Bengal team to the promised land next season.
However, Bengali odds are dropping as the market starts to stabilize. What is causing this drop? And could it show value on Cincy as we progress through the season?
As of today, WynnBET has Bengals at +1500 to win Super Bowl 57. This is the fourth-lowest odds in the AFC and sixth-lowest overall, with the Bills, Chiefs, Rams, 49ers and Titans listed up front.
+1500 odds give Cincinnati an implied odds of 6.25% to win the Lombardi Cup, but they’ve had some tough decisions to make with some of the key players now free agents .
Their offensive woes were well documented as Burrow was on the run for much of the post-season. They desperately needed reinforcements, but Spain’s Quinton keeper and rival Riley Reiff both had no contracts, making an already thin group all the more desolate.
Furthermore, safety star Jesse Bates is a free agent and while I believe they will complete a deal to step down from him, they also have decisions to make about defensive backs Eli Apple, Vernon Hargreaves, Bamboo Flowers, Clark Harris and Ricardo Allen. Maybe we’ll see something completely different in Cincy next year after this group is their strength in the knockouts.
In the end, tight-lipped CJ Uzomah, who has emerged as a favorite of Burrow’s red zone, will likely be hoping to cash in on big payday at 29 with a history of injuries. It’s unlikely that the Bengali can do the capping to keep the gang together, so we’ll see some strange faces as they try to repeat themselves as the AFC Champions.
And all that is before you get to the improvements that the rest of AFC is making. Josh Allen, Patrick Mahomes, Lamar Jackson and Justin Herbert were all ready to pounce, and chat that Aaron Rodgers could come to Denver looks like the conference is only going to get stronger.
Put it all together and it will be very difficult for the Bengals to win a second Super Bowl in a row, let alone win. Even at +1500 you have a lot to consider to get it right this season and I want to wait and see what happens before committing my money to Burrow and company.
