How to bet on the Cincinnati Bengals


The moneyline is the simplest of bets, decided by the straight-up winner and loser of each game. Consider the following example:

  • Patriots -125
  • Bengals +210

The Bengals are considered underdogs in this matchup (indicated by +210), paying out $310 total for a $100 bet ($210 in winnings). The Patriots are the favorite in this matchup, requiring a $125 bet to win $100 (plus the initial bet back). How much either team wins or loses by does not matter in moneyline betting, the payout remains the same.

Point spread

Betting on the point spread is determinant on how many points a team wins or loses by. Take the following example:

  • Rams -4.5 (-110)
  • Bengals +4.5 (-110)

In this example, Los Angeles is favored by 4.5 points, indicated by “-4.5.” If the Rams win the game 22-17, the Rams (-4.5) win the bet and would have a total payout of $19.09 on a $10 bet ($9.09 in profit). If the Bengals keep the game within four and lose 23-20, the Bengals (+4.5) would win, and the payout would be the same as listed above.

Point total (over/under)

The point total refers to the over/under line set by books. This number projects the total number of points scored in a game and, like prop betting, is bet whether one thinks the score will go over or under the set point total. For example, in a Bengals matchup with the Eagles, the game had a projected point total of 48.5 points. The Eagles and Bengals tied 23-23, for a combined point total of 46 points. Those that bet the under in the game would have cashed out.

In-play and live betting

Sometimes, the most thrilling and rewarding bets are bets made while games are being played. These are referred to as live bets or in-play bets. Odds are ever-changing during games, which would prove to be fruitful for sharp and prepared bettors. For example, if the Bengals (-225) were heavily favored against the Texans (+190) before kickoff, a payout on a $10 bet on the Bengals to win would win just $4.44.

However, say the Bengals fell to a big 17-3 deficit in the first half despite controlling the overall game (due to a costly turnover or special teams gaffe). Odds may swing in favor of the Texans, who may be a -110 favorite at halftime. Taking the Bengals to come back and win the game could present plus-odds (say, +130). Should a bettor take Cincinnati (+130) at halftime and the Bengals pull off the comeback, winners would win $13 instead of $4.44 (plus the initial $10 bet).

This could also be an effective way to “hedge” your bet; say a bettor took the Texans (+190) in that game, but Cincinnati jumps out to a 10-0 first quarter lead and is controlling the overall feel of the game, bettors could hedge by throwing some money down on the Bengals (-270) to return some of the inevitably-lost bet.

Parlays and teasers

You can always string bets together in the form of parlays or teasers. Usually during busy Sundays, bettors can parlay several teams to win or cover against the spread and if all bets are successful, the payouts are multiplied. Teasers function similarly, except they allow bettors to move each point spread to a more favorable line in exchange for diminished odds.

Bengals 2020 recap

Record: 4-11-1

Record ATS: 9-7

Over/under record: 7-8-1

4-11-1 isn’t much to celebrate, but the Bengals exceeded expectations in almost every category. Games against the Browns that were projected to be blowouts remained close and Cincinnati even spoiled the Steelers’ undefeated party. The offense was capable even without a strong offensive line and Joe Burrow was well on his way to putting together a Rookie of the Year campaign before his injury. Reserve running back Giovanni Bernard even showed signs of life in Joe Mixon’s absence.

The real surprise is the Bengals’ 9-7 record against the spread this season. After selecting first overall in the NFL Draft, Cincinnati wasn’t expected to do much of anything this year, often digging themselves in point spread holes. However, Burrow’s magic and Zac Taylor’s sound coaching kept the Bengals in games. They were wins of attrition though, as the Bengals finished below 0.500 against the point total.
