Cincinnati Bengals Odds, Bet Types, & Team History
The Cincinnati Bengals finished 2020 in the cellar of the AFC North for a third consecutive season. And though a 4-11-1 record won’t show it, the franchise has many positives to build on heading into the new year. Despite a clear lack of experience at multiple positions, they were competitive and had several young players exceed expectations early in their careers.
Among the standouts was QB Joe Burrow . Before a knee injury ended his rookie year, the 2020 NFL draft’s No.1 overall pick showed out on a near-weekly basis. Burrow threw for 2,688 yards and 13 touchdowns against just five interceptions in 10 games, eclipsing 300 yards in five of those. He also took 32 sacks in that span, which is not a recipe for a long career if his team can’t keep him upright. Burrow went 2-6-1 as a starter, with four of those losses coming by a combined 15 points. With experience and more time to make plays, and the improved record feels imminent.
Now about that offensive line. Experience played a part with two second-year players shoring up the left side, and so did health as no lineman started every game. But after Burrow, there might not be a more important position group in Cincinnati. The Bengals finished 24th in rushing yards per game last year before drafting three linemen in April and signing tackle Riley Reiff , who has 127 starts in nine seasons. That’ll benefit Burrow and the run game. Running back Joe Mixon was limited to six games in 2020 and will look to return to his 2018 and 2019 form when he cleared 1,100 yards in back-to-back seasons.
Burrow still produced at a high level even with the high volume of hits he took. If this is a big ‘if,’ he can stay healthy, the Bengals have some promising weapons for the young QB. Tyler Boyd saw his streak of 1,000-yard seasons come to an end, but he led Cincinnati with 79 catches and finished second with 841 yards and four touchdowns. Tee Higgins could be primed for another breakout after catching 67 passes for a team-high 908 yards and six touchdowns as a rookie. Those two alone gave the Bengals a promising 1-2 combination for the future before they drafted Ja’Marr Chase fifth overall in 2021. A Biletnikoff Award winner and Burrow’s college teammate, Chase hauled in 84 receptions for 1,780 yards and 20 scores in his final season at LSU.
Defensively, Cincinnati ranked 22nd in points allowed last season and only returns five starters from that unit. Safety Jessie Bates will be the cornerstone of the defense after making second-team All-Pro last year. He has 108 total tackles, 15 pass breakups, three interceptions, and a forced fumble. The Bengals also brought in veterans in Larry Ogunjobi , Chidobe Awuzie, and Trey Hendrickson to bolster the defense. Awuzie and Ogunjobi have a combined 49 start the past four seasons, while Hendrickson racked up 13.5 sacks last year in New Orleans.
The Bengals open the 2021 NFL season at home against the Minnesota Vikings. You can view the Action Network’s top odds for the game below, in addition to an odds comparison for every Week 1 game right here.

The AFC North has been one of the more complete divisions in the NFL, with four Super Bowl champions since 2000. Cincinnati last captured its division title in 2015 but remained searching for its first playoff win since 1990. The Bengals had also finished fourth in the division in three straight seasons, including 2020, when they went 4-11-1.
The Pittsburgh Steelers won the AFC North at 12-4 last year, while the Baltimore Ravens and Cleveland Browns had 11 wins. Cleveland and Baltimore advanced to the Divisional Round of the NFL playoffs, with the Browns knocking off the Steelers and the Ravens beating Tennessee. While the Bengals may not be ready to make a run at a playoff berth, it’s unlikely they’ll finish towards the bottom of the AFC again. Cincinnati was 0-5-1 in games decided by five points or fewer last year.

Betting on the Cincinnati Bengals
Cincinnati Bengals Point Spreads
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:
- Ravens +2.5 (+110)
- Bengals -2.5 (-110)
In this situation, the Ravens are 2.5 point underdogs against the Browns. If Cincinnati wins the game by three or more points, a $100 wager on the Bengals will come with a payout of $90.91. If Baltimore won the game outright or lost by two points or less, the same $100 wager would net $110 plus the original $100 for a total of $210.
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 Steelers play the Bengals, and the over/under is set at 47 points. A wager on the over would require Pittsburgh and Cleveland to score 48 total points or more to win. Betting the under is an expectation that the two teams would score 46 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 2020, Cincinnati averaged 19.4 points (29th in NFL) per game and allowed 26.5 points (22nd). The Bengals went 7-8-1 against the over, hitting the under in 53.3 percent of its games in 2020.
Cincinnati Bengals Moneylines
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 -140
- Browns +230
The minus (-) plus (+) signs distinguish the favorite from the underdog, making Cincinnati 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 Bengals' odds would mean every $14 bet nets $10. And it's the opposite for underdogs: Here, the Browns moneyline was set at +230, meaning a $10 wager would profit $23.
Moneylines are also commonly used when making parlays, which are multiple bets tied into one. Let’s say you bet the Bengals moneyline and -2.5 point spread. Cincinnati would need to win by three 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.
Cincinnati Bengals Props
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.
Cincinnati Bengals Futures
Futures are somewhat similar to prop bets in the way that both are monitored over the course of a season. Except most future bets are focused on the end of season success. Examples of futures are:
- Cincinnati Bengals odds to win the AFC North
- Cincinnati Bengals odds to win the AFC
- Cincinnati Bengals odds to win the Super Bowl
- Joe Burrow’s odds to win Offensive Player of the Year
- Ja’Marr Chase’s odds to win Offensive Rookie of the Year
If you’re confident that the Bengals will figure things out this year or that Burrow and Chase will re-discover the chemistry from their LSU days, this is the place to be. For a full list of NFL futures, click or tap here.
