The Cincinnati Bengals shocked the football world and made a lot of predictions look stupid last season when they made it through the AFC in the postseason and almost beat the Los Angeles Rams in Super Bowl LVI. But, it’s never easy to follow up a magical season and the Bengals will now be the hunted instead of the hunter. Cincinnati is still loaded with talent, and the Cincinnati Bengals future betting odds reflect as much. The Bengals are one of the top AFC contenders, even if they’ll have a tough task repeating their 2021 campaign.
Cincinnati was not expected to be particularly good a year ago as their win total over-under was a mere 6.5 victories. The Bengals blew past that prediction, going 10-7 and finishing just a quarter away from a championship. With much of their core intact, particularly on offense… Zac Taylor’s team should, once again, be one of the best teams in the conference. Take a look at the PointSpreads page and check the NFL future odds, keep updated with the NFL news while Cincinnati will try to win back-to-back division titles for the first time in franchise history.

Everything Goes Through Burrow
- Passing Yards: 4450.5 (-115o)
- Passing Touchdowns: 33.5 (-125o)
- Interceptions: 12.5 (-110o)
Of all the impressive Cincinnati Bengals stats from the 2021 season, Joe Burrow’s numbers are the most eye-popping. Despite being sacked 51 times (the most in the NFL), Burrow was able to lead the league in completion percentage and yards per passing attempt. He threw for over 4,600 yards and had 34 touchdowns (compared to just 14 interceptions) in his first full NFL season, not to mention leading the Bengals to one of the more improbable playoffs runs in recent memory.
Still, the NFL’s future odds for Burrow’s stats are a little lofty. Defenses will be better equipped to deal with the Bengals’ offense now than they were a year ago and Cincinnati did lose reliable target C.J. Uzomah in free agency. On the other hand, the Bengals’ biggest weakness in 2021 was the offensive line which has undergone a significant overhaul this season. Burrow should have more time in the pocket even if his options might not be as open.
High Expectations for Mixon
- Rushing Yards: 1050.5 (-115o)
- Rushing Touchdowns: 10.5 (-115o)
Joe Mixon had another huge season last year, running for 1,205 yards with 13 scores. He also had 314 receiving yards and 11 receiving touchdowns, making for some pretty ridiculous production. There’s no reason to think that he won’t be able to matchup those numbers behind an improved offensive line that now features Ted Karras, Alex Cappa, and La’el Collins.
Mixon is one of the NFL’s most explosive backs and he was a workhouse for the Bengals all season. His production did dip a little in the playoffs but he is healthy and is a really good bet to hit his personal statistical overs. The Cincinnati Bengals future betting odds are bullish in large part due to Mixon’s reliability and versatility within the offense. He’s a good player to rely on from a gambling perspective.
Crowded Wide Receiver Room
- Receptions: 84.5 (-115o)
- Receiving Yards: 1225.5 (-115o)
- Receiving Touchdowns: 11.5
Chase is the clear leader of the Bengals’ absolutely stacked wide receiver corps which might have the best trio in the NFL. Burrow’s college teammate is the best of the bunch and he had an incredible rookie season, catching 81 passes for 1,455 yards with 13 touchdowns. While it would be extremely difficult for Chase to match those numbers in 2022, he is already one of the top receivers in the NFL so he should have another huge year.
His receiving yards over seems to be the safest pick, mainly because of his game-changing speed and due to all the competition for targets that Chase has to contend with on the Bengals. But, he’s definitely Burrow’s favorite option and there’s no questioning the chemistry that they have with each other. Chase had 128 targets in 2021 for a reason.
- Receptions: 75.5 (-120o)
- Receiving Yards: 1000.5 (-115o)
- Receiving Touchdowns: 7.5 (-115o)
Higgins is a pretty good No. 2 receiver and he had a career year in 2021, catching 74 passes for 1,091 yards. He also had six receiving touchdowns. Plus, Higgins did all of that in just 14 games. If he can stay healthy for a full 17-game season, then he has the potential to blow past his personal over/under. Like with Chase, Higgins does have to share targets with the rest of Cincinnati’s solid pass-catchers but Higgins is good enough to command sufficient attention from Burrow to eclipse 75 catches and 1,000 yards.
The Cincinnati Bengals future betting odds recognize that Higgins, while not of the same star caliber as Chase, is still just entering his third NFL season and has a ton of room to grow. He is perfectly set up to replicate his sophomore year performance.
- Receptions: 70.5 (-105)
- Receiving Yards: 795.5 (-115)
- Receiving Touchdowns: 4.5 (-115)
Boyd is the veteran of Cincinnati’s wide receiving corps and is about as consistent as pass-catchers get in today’s NFL. He has four consecutive 800+ yard seasons and, while his numbers dipped down to 67 catches and 828 yards in 2021 (with only five touchdowns), he is still a huge part of the Bengals’ offense as more of a possession-type receiver.
The Cincinnati Bengals future betting odds reflect how Boyd could probably be a No. 2 receiver on most contenders but, in Cincinnati, his skillset as a No. 3 option perfectly complements the speed of Chase and the size of Higgins. Look for Boyd to wind up with just around 70 catches and 800 yards yet again.
