Bengals Betting Odds 2022 | Bengals Best Prop Bets

The Bengals shocked the NFL world in 2021 by coming within four points of a Super Bowl victory over the Los Angeles Rams. To get there, Cincinnati first took the AFC Central with a 10-7 regular-season mark before going on a memorable three-game playoff run capped off by a 27-24 overtime victory against Patrick Mahomes and the Chiefs at Arrowhead Stadium.

Joe Burrow, the No. 1 overall pick a year earlier, came back from the ACL injury that cut short his rookie season after 10 games to throw for 4,611 yards, 34 touchdowns, and 14 interceptions in the regular season before compiling 1,105 yards with five touchdowns and two interceptions over their four-game postseason run.

Given last season’s success, Zac Taylor’s squad did only some selective retooling this offseason. Cincinnati did attack its primary weakness last season, the offensive line, by adding three new linemen in Ted Karras, Alex Cappa, and La’el Collins.

The Bengals then turned its attention to defense in the first two days of the draft, nabbing Michigan safety Daxton Hill, Nebraska cornerback Cam Taylor-Britt, and Florida defensive lineman Zachary Carter in the first three rounds.

Bengals Super Bowl 57 Odds

Bengals to Win Super Bowl (+2200)

The Bengals surprisingly sport the 11th-shortest Super Bowl winner odds as of mid-May, noteworthy given their status as reigning AFC champions. Granted, Cincinnati’s 10-7 mark last regular season was the weakest of all division winners, but with Burrow having enjoyed a healthy offseason, Ja’Marr Chase now boasting one spectacular rookie season under his belt and a refortified offensive line, the Bengals’ offense could well run even smoother and hit its stride much quicker than a year ago.

One of the keys to quicker and even more frequent success on offense will be what should be much better pass protection for Burrow after Cincinnati’s offensive line allowed the third-most sacks (55) a season ago. That should also provide Joe Mixon with even more running lanes than last season, when he averaged 4.1 yards per carry.

On the defensive side, the Bengals took their level of play on that side of the ball to another level during the postseason and will look to carry that momentum over into 2022. Cincy’s defensive unit has remained largely unchanged, but the experience of last season should prove invaluable and make them an even more cohesive group.

It’s also worth noting the Bengals enter 2022 with several impressive wins on their resume from last season, victories over teams that they’ll likely have to topple again to be in a position to win the Super Bowl — Cincinnati beat Baltimore twice and the Chiefs once during the regular season, and they narrowly lost to the Packers and 49ers in overtime.

Bengals AFC Championship Odds

Bengals to Win AFC Championship (+1200) 

Given the positives already discussed for the reigning AFC champs, Cincinnati has a strong chance of repeating despite some formidable competition. At +1200, the Bengals sport the sixth-shortest odds, and the list of teams ahead of them is admittedly a who’s who — the Bills (+360), the Chiefs (+500), the Chargers (+850), the Broncos (+850), and the Browns (+1000).

Nevertheless, Cincy’s stalwart personnel on either side of the ball gives them a chance against the rest of the AFC’s top tier, almost all of which have some concerns of their own. The Bills do appear to be the most bulletproof, but the Bengals knocked off the Chiefs twice last season and KC now has significantly reduced firepower on offense with Tyreek Hill now in Miami.

Then, the Chargers floundered badly down the stretch last season, the Broncos may well have an acclimation curve in Russell Wilson’s first season in Denver, and the Browns could experience the same under Deshaun Watson, who could also miss some games due to league discipline.

Bengals AFC North Winner Odds

Bengals to Win AFC North Championship (+220)

The Bengals’ +220 price puts them behind the Browns and even with the Ravens in terms of division-winning odds. Cleveland’s status as the odds-on favorite naturally stems from the offseason acquisitions of Watson and Amari Cooper, as well as a defense that should once again be one of the best in the league.

Meanwhile, the Ravens did trade away Marquise Brown, but Lamar Jackson will still have a bigger arsenal to work with than last season considering the returns of J.K. Dobbins and Gus Edwards from ACL tears. Then, the Steelers are widely considered to be in transition during their first season since 2004 without Ben Roethlisberger on the roster.

While the division does figure to be a three-team dogfight, the Bengals’ talent and pedigree make them a nice value at their current price, especially with Watson not guaranteed to play a full season.

The Bengals’ 10 wins was enough to not only qualify for the postseason in 2021 but to take the division, as well. While the same tally will very likely not be enough to accomplish the latter with refortified Cleveland and Baltimore squads, the Bengals are certainly a good bet to do enough to qualify for the postseason as a wild card, at minimum.

Given the analysis already provided by Cincinnati’s strengths, a repeat of last season’s win total seems highly likely as long as good health prevails. There are some landmines of the Bengals’ schedule, but a non-division ledger that includes the Jets, the Saints, the Falcons, and the Panthers can certainly help pave the way for a successful year, not to mention two games within the AFC North against the Steelers.

Bengals Prop Bets 2022

Joe Burrow to Win MVP (+1300)

Wager: 1 Unit

Despite his stellar 2021, one that was almost an extension of his rookie campaign – considering that ended after 10 games — Burrow has the sixth-shortest odds in the MVP market behind fellow signal-callers Josh Allen (+700), Patrick Mahomes (+750), Tom Brady (+900), Aaron Rodgers (+1000), and Justin Herbert (+1200).

While he’s understandably behind Allen and Brady, there’s a case to be made for Burrow having a better season than Mahomes, Rodgers, and Herbert. Mahomes will almost certainly see a downturn with Hill gone, and the same is projected to be true for Rodgers without Davante Adams.

And, while Herbert does have Keenan Allen and Mike Williams back, there’s precious little experienced depth behind them, which could naturally affect the quarterback’s numbers whenever there are injuries to the top two.

In turn, Burrow should be even better with a full offseason to prepare and the experience of last season under his belt. Additionally, the pass-catching repertoire of Chase, Tee Higgins, and Tyler Boyd arguably gives Burrow a deeper, more established arsenal than all but Brady from the quarterbacks in front of him on the market’s leaderboard.
