After two straight Super Bowl appearances, it looked like the Chiefs were back for more. Instead, the Bengals took advantage of numerous Chiefs miscues and advanced with a 27-24 win. Now, what are the Bengals’ Super Bowl odds as they await the winner of 49ers at Rams?

Bengals Vs. Rams Odds
The Bengals opened +3.5 against the Rams at Caesars Sportsbook in the initial openers.
Initially, it looked like a blowout loss was coming and this line wouldn’t be a concern. However, the Bengals comeback against the consensus top team in the markets makes things interesting. Did they do enough to move the lines off this key number here?
Depending on how the Rams look in a win, we could see this line open Rams -3. Remember, they do get to play at home, should they advance past San Francisco.
Two of the more prolific passing offenses would meet in this matchup, and the look-ahead lines have been around 50 on the total. Keep in mind also that the Super Bowl takes place indoors this year, further strengthening the case for offense.
Bengals Vs. 49ers Odds
These teams actually already met earlier in the season, back in Week 14. San Francisco went up pretty big, 20-6 in the fourth quarter. They had a chance to all but end it, but failed to get a stop on 4th and 5. The Bengals got back in it with a touchdown, and they wound up tying it with 79 seconds left.
The 49ers missed a winning field goal but took the game anyway in overtime with a walkoff touchdown.
The Bengals found themselves home underdogs in that spot (+1.5) but the market appears to have upgraded them slightly. They opened +1.5 on neutral here, although the lines has gotten closer to +3 on both FanDuel Sportsbook and DraftKings Sportsbook.
