Knowing how to bet on football is more than just looking at the NFL matchups and making NFL picks. You can find NFL odds for every game of the regular season, but you can also find season odds and future bets for every team.
The Cincinnati Bengals advanced all the way to the Super Bowl a season ago, and you would think that would have the NFL odds high on them heading into 2022. Cincinnati was able to defy NFL betting stats a season ago, and they will have to pull off some upsets in 2022 as well.
Cincinnati Bengals Week 1 Matchup Preview
The Cincinnati Bengals host the Pittsburgh Steelers in Week 1, and that is a big game for the NFL standings. The AFC North Division is expected to be wide open in 2022, but it is the Bengals that are six-point betting favorites in the season opener.
Pittsburgh will have a new quarterback under center this season as Ben Roethlisberger has retired. That should give the Bengals defense a chance to dominate in this game, but Cincinnati can also win games with that offense.
The Steelers are never a team to mess around with, but the Bengals should be good enough to win this game by at least a touchdown to begin the 2022 season.

Joe Burrow has odds set at +1200 to have the most passing yards in 2022, and that is the fifth-best odds on the list. Wide receiver Ja’Marr Chase has odds at +1200 to lead the league in receiving yards, and he will be the number one target for Burrow.
The final major player season prop betting option that you will find is rushing yards. Joe Mixon had a huge season in 2021 and he has odds set at +1600 to lead the league in receiving yards.
Cincinnati Bengals 2022 Season Odds
Cincinnati Bengals 2022 Super Bowl Odds
Even though the Cincinnati Bengals were in the Super Bowl in 2021, you aren’t going to find very good Super Bowl odds for this team in 2022. The Bengals have NFL odds set at +2200 to win the Super Bowl, which is actually behind 11 other teams.
The Buffalo Bills (+650) and the Tampa Bay Buccaneers (+800) are the early favorites to win the Super Bowl.
Cincinnati Bengals Playoff Odds
Getting into the playoffs is the first step for the Cincinnati Bengals, but life in the AFC North won’t be easy. By winning the AFC a season ago, the Bengals have a very difficult schedule in 2022, and that will make things challenging.
If you are looking to bet on the Bengals to reach the playoffs again in 2022 then you can get those odds at -115. Once again, there are other teams with much better odds than Cincinnati to reach the postseason.
Cincinnati Bengals AFC North Odds
The AFC North Division might not be the best in the NFL, but it should easily be one of the most competitive. You could make a case for all four of the teams to win the division crown, and that includes the Bengals.
The Bengals have NFL odds set at +200 to win the NFC North this season, which is the second-best odds. The Baltimore Ravens are the favorites at +170, and the Bengals are followed by the Cleveland Browns (+270) and the Pittsburgh Steelers (+850).
Cincinnati Bengals AFC Championship Odds
Cincinnati came out of nowhere to win the AFC Championship a season ago, and it will have to be a similar performance in 2022. There are two clear favorites to compete for the AFC Championship crown and Cincinnati is not in that mix.
You have to look well down the list to find the NFL odds for the Bengals to win the AFC, and here is that list of teams in front of them:
- Buffalo Bills +350
- Kansas City Chiefs +500
- Denver Broncos +850
- Los Angeles Chargers +850
- Cleveland Browns +1000
- Indianapolis Colts +1200
- Baltimore Ravens +1200
