Against the odds, the Cincinnati Bengals are on their way to the AFC Championship Game. Despite poor play by the offensive line, Joe Burrow once again led the Bengals to a massive road win, this time over the AFC’s top seed. Below, we’ll look at the Bengals Super Bowl odds, as well as how they stack up against each of their potential opponents next round.
Cincinnati takes their AFC North crown on the road to try and capture its first Super Bowl appearance since 1988. Where do Bengals Super Bowl odds stand after punching their ticket to the conference title game?
Current Super Bowl odds
The Bengals still have the longest Super Bowl odds. The Chiefs sit atop the final four teams, followed closely by the Rams. Even if Cincinnati pulls a stunner against Kansas City as touchdown underdogs, expect the Bengals to be an underdog for a third consecutive playoff game in the Super Bowl.
Cincinnati among some of the longest odds to win the Super Bowl coming into this season with 100-1 odds.
Up Next: Bengals Vs. Chiefs or Bills
We just saw what happens when you pit a motivated Bengals team at home against this Kansas City Chiefs team. In Week 17, Ja’Marr Chase hauled in over 200 receiving yards and three touchdowns while Burrow threw for 446 yards and four touchdowns. While the home environment has been one of the best for Cincinnati this season, they have a better average point margin on the road (+9.3) than at home (+1.7) while playing a comparable strength of schedule.
The one new factor in this game is the Chiefs’ postseason experience and sense of urgency the playoffs bring to the table. Burrow and Chase have college championship experience, but only two NFL playoff games under their belt. Going to Arrowhead and beating the Chiefs is another animal.
After the other half of the AFC bracket warpped up, the Bengals opened as 6.5-point road underdogs.
