Cincinnati Bengals Player Stats
Cincinnati Bengals Odds, Bet Types, and Team History
The Cincinnati Bengals came into the 2021-22 with low external expectations after finishing last in the AFC North the previous year. With a 2020-21 record of 4-11-1, there was not a lot of buzz about the Bengals to start the year, especially with their young franchise QB, Joe Burrow, trying to return from a season ending knee injury in his rookie season.
The Bengals opened the 2021-22 campaign with +2500 odds to win the AFC North and +15000 odds to win the Super Bowl. Despite the seemingly uphill climb, there was a great deal of buzz about the team's potential offensive prowess, should Burrow be able to come back healthy, after the team drafted standout LSU wide receiver (and former Burrow teammate) Ja'Marr Chase to pair with other weapons like Joe Mixon.
The Bengals shocked the NFL by winning the very competitive AFC North, but the expectations of them remained relatively low for the postseason. Still, Cincinnati took down the Raiders and Titans to set up a matchup with the Kansas City Chiefs, which they shockingly won to set up a Super Bowl trip.
After losing to the Rams and having its offensive line exposed, Cincinnati bolstered that unit more than any during the offseason. This is still a young offense with huge potential, but it won't catch anyone by surprise this season.
Betting on the Cincinnati Bengals
There are many options available to bettors looking to place a wager on the Bengals. Review the possibilities below and combine your favorite bet types to maximize your potential payout for the end of the game.
Betting point spreads are wagers based on the expectation that a team will win or lose by a certain number of points. The Bengals were far better at covering than they were straight up in 2020, owning a 9-7 record against the spread. Cincinnati’s four wins were by an average margin of 8.8 points, while its 11 losses came at an average of 13.7 points, though five of those were by 17 points total.
Here’s an example:
- Rams -4.5 (-110)
- Bengals +4.5 (-110)
In this situation, the Rams are 2.5 point favorites against the Bengals. If the Rams win the game by five or more points, a $100 wager on the Rams will come with a payout of $90.91. If Cincinnati won the game outright or lost by four points or less, the same $100 wager would net $110 plus the original $100 for a total of $210.
FAQ: Everything you need to know about point spreads
Over/under, also called point total, is a wager placed on the combined scoring of a single game. Bookmakers come up with a number, and you can either bet the over or — you guessed it — the under. Here’s how it works:
The Rams are set to play the Bengals in Super Bowl LVI, and the over/under is set at 48 points. A wager on the over would require Los Angeles and Cincinnati to score 49 total points or more to win. Betting the under is an expectation that the two teams would score 47 or fewer points. It's also possible for the bet to push, which would happen if the game finished with exactly 47 points scored.
In 2021, Cincinnati averaged 26.6 (8th in NFL) per game and allowed 21.8 points (13th). The Bengals have hit the over in 10 out of 20 games this season (including the playoffs).
FAQ: Betting the point total, explained | What is a push?
The moneyline is as straightforward as it gets when it comes to betting. The only thing to do here is to pick the winner. Check out this example:
- Bengals +165
- Rams -200
The minus (-) plus (+) signs distinguish the favorite from the underdog, making Los Angeles the favorite in this scenario. Odds can be understood more clearly if you think in terms of $10 or $100 increments. A wager on the Rams' odds would mean every $10 bet nets $5. And it's the opposite for underdogs: Here, the Bengals' moneyline was set at +165, meaning a $10 wager would profit $16.50.
Moneylines are also commonly used when making parlays, which are multiple bets tied into one. Let’s say you bet the Rams moneyline with the Super Bowl -4.5 point spread. The Rams would need to win by five points or more for that bet to be successful. The risk is greater, but so is the reward with increased odds. Use our Odds Calculator to calculate any bet amount or conversion.

Bengals Prop Bets
Player props are wagers on a single player, and they're tied to a single stat found in the box score for a game or even the whole season. These are among the most fun to bet on, especially if you're already playing fantasy football and like the player-specific focus it offers. Check out a hypothetical example below:
- Joe Burrow 2021 passing yards: 4,000.5
Let’s break it down a bit. Burrow averaged 268.8 passing yards per game in 2020 as a rookie. We’ll assume he drops down a little to 260 this year. If Burrow sustained that pace over 16 games, he’d be at 4,160 yards and be well over the mark here. Remember, the NFL added an extra regular-season game in 2021. Burrow only played 10 games last year due to injury. As long as he’s healthy, it’s fair to think he’d play a full season. Assuming he played in all 17 games, he’d crush this situational prop with 4,420 yards.
