Bengals Super Bowl 58 Odds: September 30, 2023
At the moment, Cincinnati (+2000) are tied for the seventh-best odds to win Super Bowl LVIII per DraftKings Ohio. Take a look below to see their updated odds to win the Super Bowl, AFC and AFC North.
Cincinnati's Super Bowl odds rank seventh among the 32 NFL teams. The Bengals moved up one spot after having the eighth-best odds last week. Or, on could argue, the Ravens moved down as Cincinnati's odds didn't change week over week. The Bengals' odds to win the 2024 Super Bowl were +1100 for most of the offseason.
While the AFC is generally considered the better of the two conferences, the 49ers at +600 have the best odds to win it all, and the Eagles have the third-best odds. The Chiefs sit second at +650. The Bengals are tied for the fourth-best odds among AFC sides, trailing the Chiefs, Dolphins and Bills.
As expected, the Bengals' odds of winning the AFC North continued to drop as they are the only team in the division not to start off 2-1. However, it is shocking the Steelers topped Cincinnati after both teams won in Week 3. Remember, the Bengals also started off 0-2 then 1-2 last season and won the division, losing in the AFC Championship Game to the Chiefs.
Prior to Week 1, the Bengals were a strong favorite to win the AFC North for a third straight season. A division featuring the Pittsburgh Steelers, Baltimore Ravens and Cleveland Browns, Cincinnati has now moved to +425 to win the division. That is up from +475 prior to Week 3, but it now has the worst odds to win the AFC North. From Week 1 to now, it has gone +150 to +245 to +475 to +425, where they are now. They have moved from +150 to +245 to +475 with both the Browns and Ravens hurdling Cincinnati after Week 1. The Bengals sit at +425, which indicates that a $100 bet on the Bengals to win the AFC North would return $425 for a total payout of $525.

Bengals Super Bowl Odds vs. AFC North
Following a 24-3 loss in Cleveland to open up the season and then a 27-24 loss in Week 2 at home, the Cincinnati Bengals dropped from the favorite to win the AFC North before the season to now have the division's worst odds. A win over the Rams in Week 3 didn't help either. Their odds to win Super Bowl LVIII have dropped from +1400 to +2000 after Week 2 but stayed the same after Week 3. The Bengals have not won a Super Bowl in their 53-year history, and they are 0-3 in their three appearances.
The Baltimore Ravens at (+2000) are tied with the Bengals for the best Super Bowl odds in the AFC North. They beat the Texans 25-9 in Week 1 and then the Bengals on the road 27-24 in Week 2. Baltimore lost to the Indianapolis Colts 22-19 in Week 3, dropping its odds from + 1400 to +2000. The last time the Ravens made the Super Bowl was Super Bowl XLVII, a 34-31 win over the San Francisco 49ers.
The Cleveland Browns (+2200) are also 2-1, but their two wins have looked much different. They beat the Bengals 24-3 and Titans 27-3, losing to the Steelers 26-22. Cleveland lost star back Nick Chubb for the season in Week 2 to a gruesome knee injury. The Browns haven't made it past the division round in the postseason in the last 30-plus years.
The Pittsburgh Steelers (+5000) were pummeled by San Fran in Week 1 but have rallied off two straight wins and the back of a dynamic of powerful defensive line. Second-year quarterback Kenny Pickett hasn't looked great, but the defense could be enough to propel them to the playoffs. Pittsburgh is up from being +5500 to win the Super Bowl last week.

Bengals Schedule and Betting Lines
Cincinnati has a difficult schedule this season with the Sharp Strength of Schedule indicator noting they had the 12th-hardest strength of schedule coming into 2023. In a division that has four quality organizations, expect the Bengals to have some struggles, as they did in Week 1 and Week 2 against the Browns and Ravens respectively. However, they did look like their AFC-winning selves from 2021 in Week 3 against the Los Angeles Rams.
Key Contributors Toward Bengals Super Bowl Odds
The Bengals have one of the most complete rosters in the NFL, and what was considered one of their weaker points – the secondary – has performed well to start the season.
Leading the way is Joe Burrow, who is now the highest-paid player in the NFL with his recent contract extension. Burrow struggled in Week 1, having arguably the worst game of his career. He had 222 yards and 2 touchdowns in Week 2. While he ended Week 3 with 0 touchdowns and an interception, his command of the offense was clear, and he looked far more comfortable and confident in the pocket and with his receivers. Expect Burrow's aggressiveness and deep ball to continue improving as the season continues. Recent Joe Burrow MVP odds sit at +2000, down from +750 after Week 1.
Alongside Burrow, the Bengals offense has WR Ja'Marr Chase, WR Tee Higgins and OL Orlando Brown Jr. Chase had the best game of any offensive player for the Bengals this season, turning in a 12-reception, 141-yard night Monday. Higgins had two receptions for 21 yards and now has just 110 yards on 10 receptions through three games. He did not have a good Week 3 showing with multiple drops. Tyler Boyd ended with 39 receiving yards, the second most on the team.
In Week 3, the defense got right, providing several red zone stops. In Week 1 and 2, the Bengals gave up over 170 rushing yards to their opponent. In Week 3, the Rams had just 71 rushing yards. The Cincinnati pass rush also played a major factor as it had six sacks, two of which were from defensive end Trey Hendrickson. Star Linebacker Logan Wilson had two interceptions as well. It was a dominant defensive effort from the Bengals which helped ensure the team's first victory of the season.

Bengals Super Bowl LVIII Outlook and Predictions
There's no denying that the Bengals have a roster that is, at the very least, capable of winning the Super Bowl. Whether that comes together at the right time will be a different question. The Bengals enhanced their defense with Hendrickson and Wilson a few years ago and added to it with former Rams safety Nick Scott, who had 11 tackles in his team debut in Week 1. The chemistry between Burrow and his receivers will improve as his health hopefully continues to get closer to 100%.
The Bengals made it to the Super Bowl behind Burrow and Chase in 2021, but they lost to the Matthew Stafford-led Los Angeles Rams. Cincinnati lost 23-20 in the Super Bowl. Offensive Player of the Year Cooper Kupp ended the Bengals' dreams with a game-winning touchdown with just 1:25 remaining in the game. The Bengals success continued after that disappointment, making it to the AFC Championship Game last season. They lost to the Chiefs in that battle.
The Bengals, if they are to bounce back in 2023, will do so behind Burrow and their trio of star receivers. The Bengals' top three weapons, which are widely considered the best trio of receivers in the NFL, had just 49 receiving yards in Week 1. Chase really has had the only breakout game of the three, totaling 141 yards in Week 3 after ending the first two weeks with 70. With Chase eligible for an extension this coming offseason and Higgins playing on the last year of his contract, it will be even more paramount that they perform well in 2023.
The Bengals defense has been a key factor in their success as well, not be overshadowed by Burrow and Chase. They allowed the sixth-fewest points per game last season. The Bengals' pass-rushing duo of Hendrickson and Sam Hubbard should also be able to wreak havoc on opposing lines. They were bottled up through two weeks but dominated in Week 3, ending with three combined sacks. The Bengals defense helped get them to the largest event in football in 2021 and performed above expectations last season. If they are to get back to the Super Bowl, it may have to be on the back of this experienced group.
Given the recent extension to Burrow and the rising contracts that will need to be given, it is Super Bowl or bust for the Bengals in 2023.
