Cincinnati Bengals Player Stats
While the Cincinnati Bengals' 2020 season seems poor on paper -- the franchise finished with just four wins and missed the playoffs -- there were many reasons to be optimistic about the future. None were more important than the development of rookie QB Joe Burrow, who seems poised to take another step forward in 2021.
Oddsmakers are expecting a bit of a step up, too, though a playoff berth in a brutal division with the Ravens, Browns and Steelers might be a stretch. Read more about the Bengals this year, as well as their full schedule, against-the-spread (ATS) record, key injuries, depth charts, and much more.
Cincinnati Bengals Point Spreads
Even if the Bengals don't win many games again this year, that doesn't mean you can't win some bets on them. In fact, one of the best ways to do that is the Bengals, which is a wager on how much they'll win or lose by. If they're underdogs, they don't have to win the game to win your bet -- they just have to "cover the spread."
Here’s a brief example of a spread for a Bengals game:
- Bengals +9.5 (-110)
- Ravens -9.5 (-110)
In this example, the Bengals are indeed underdogs, and you can tell by the plus sign (+) next to the spread number. A minus sign (-) indicates a favorite. A bet on the Bengals spread would win if Cincinnati beats Baltimore or if the game stays within nine points. If the won by double digits, that Bengals spread bet would be graded as a loss.
If you believe in Joe Burrow and the offense but don't quite trust the Bengals defense yet, you can also craft a bet based on that knowledge. Total bets, also called , are wagers on how many points will be scored in game by both teams, including any overtimes.
Here's an example: Say a Bengals vs. game has an over/under of 44 points. A bettor can place a wager on either the over or under of that number: The over would cash if the teams combined for 45 or more points, and the under would hit if the game finished at 43 or fewer. Given 44 is a whole number, it's also possible the game finishes at exactly 44 points -- say, a 28-16 game. In that situation, both sides of the bet would be refunded.
Cincinnati Bengals Moneylines
While it may be a scary proposition, you can always forego the point spread and bet on the Bengals to win any game outright. That's called a moneyline bet, and again the margin of victory is meaningless. If the Bengals win, you win the bet; if they lose, you lose the bet.
The moneyline odds are correlated with the spread, which means the bigger underdog a team is, the more you can make if they win. Say the Bengals are +275 against the Ravens: A $100 bet on the Bengals would pay out $275 if Cincinnati upset Baltimore. Moneyline favorite odds are the inverse, so a moneyline bet a -275 would require $275 to win $100.
Cincinnati Bengals Props
If you're the world's biggest Joe Burrow fan and want to place your hard-earned dollars on your allegiance, player props are for you. These are bets on the box score outcome of a single player, rather than the whole team.
Some notable Bengals props for the 2021 season include Burrow to throw over or under a certain amount of passing yards, Ja'Marr Chase to catch a set amount of passes, and much more.
Cincinnati Bengals Futures
You can bet on just about anything in the NFL at a U.S. sportsbook, and that includes stuff like which team will win the Super Bowl. Those type of bets are vast, and they're called futures bets -- wagers tied to end-of-season outcomes.
