Cincinnati Bengals NFL Betting

Joe Burrow had one of the greatest one-year roller coaster rides in sports history. In 2019 he was the Heisman Trophy-winning quarterback of the undefeated national champion LSU Tigers. Subsequently, Burrow was the first overall pick of the 2020 NFL Draft by the Cincinnati Bengals. He suffered an injury so horrific from that peak that it appeared as if his career could have been ended. But Burrow has rallied back and is expected to start by week one. Through it all, the Bengals somehow rallied from a 2-14 record in 2019 up to 4-11-1 in 2020. Cincinnati has failed to make the playoffs in five consecutive seasons. Gamblers have no faith that the streak is ending for 2021.

2021 Regular Season Win Total: 6.5

The fact remains that the Bengals have a long way to go towards respectability. Cincinnati ranked 29th for total offense and points scored in 2020. Defensively the Bengals were 26th overall and 22nd for points allowed.

In ten games, Joe Burrow compiled an 89.9 quarterback rating with a 13/5 TD/INT ratio. It was an impressive performance for a rookie on a really bad team.

Tee Higgins caught 67 passes for 908 yards and six touchdowns. Like Burrow, Higgins was a rookie and passed his on-the-job training with flying colors.

Tyler Boyd added 79 catches for 841 yards and four touchdowns. It was the third consecutive season that Boyd caught at least 76 passes in a campaign.

A big loss on defense was defensive end Carl Lawson, who departed for the Jets. Lawson led the Bengals with 5.5 sacks and six tackles for loss. But safety Jessie Bates III remains after a solid 2020 with 15 passes defended and three interceptions.

Head coach Zac Taylor has had quite the rise. The former Nebraska quarterback, age 38, began his career as an assistant at Texas A&M. His association with Sean McVay as Rams quarterback coach factored in his getting the Bengals head coaching gig in 2019. But like most Cincinnati coaches, Taylor is learning of the challenges that limited budgets and staffs impose.

Cincinnati earned good grades for its 2021 NFL Draft. Wide receiver Ja’Marr Chase of LSU was the first pick and has superstar potential. Also, Chase played with Burrow at LSU.

Another excellent pick was offensive lineman Jackson Carman in the second round. The goal of enhancing the protection of Joe Burrow was met with this selection.

The Bengals went to the Super Bowl in the 1981 and 1988 seasons and lost both times to the San Francisco 49ers. Head coach Marvin Lewis led them to the playoffs five straight seasons from 2011 through 2015 but never won a postseason game.
