The Cincinnati Bengals notched their first win of 2022 against the New York Jets. As much a relief as the win was, Joe Burrow was once again under duress all game long; the Bengals lead the NFL in sacks allowed. Against pass rushes in the AFC North, that kind of protection and subsequent carelessness with the football just won’t cut it. A spotty offensive line cost Burrow half of his rookie and it could cost him again. However, with weapons like Ja’Marr Chase, the Bengals’ offense is always a home run threat.
Below, you can find Cincinnati Bengals odds for 2022. Included is a weekly outlook, odds for every game this season, futures, and more.
Week 4 Odds: Bengals vs. Dolphins Spread, Total & Moneyline
The Cincinnati Bengals are at home against the Miami Dolphins on Thursday Night Football. Luckily for the Bengals’ OL, the Dolphins are 31st in the NFL in pressure rate. Not as lucky for the Bengals, Miami’s receiving tandem is the league’s most dangerous and Cincinnati’s secondary isn’t inspiring to assume a shutdown performance. A death knell in this game would be turnovers– something Burrow’s been able to avoid for the past two games.
This game has an over/under currently set at .

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.
Cincinnati Bengals odds: 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.
Cincinnati Bengals odds: 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.
Cincinnati Bengals odds: 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.
Cincinnati Bengals odds: 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 2021 recap
Record: 10-7, Lost in Super Bowl LVI
Record ATS: 10-7
Over/under record: 8-9
From four wins and a top five draft pick to Super Bowl contenders. Joe Burrow, Ja’Marr Chase, and the rest of the talented Bengals offense took the NFL by storm, breaking plenty of records along the way. Among them are the youngest No. 1 pick to start a Super Bowl (Burrow) and nearly every rookie receiving record (Chase). However, it should not go overlooked at how effective the defense was, led by Sam Hubbard, Trey Hendrickson, and a host of free agent signings from 2020. Zac Taylor and the young corps of Cincinnati are poised to be contenders for years to come.
