The Cincinnati Bengals shocked the NFL world by putting the beatdown on the Baltimore Ravens with a 41-17 final IN Baltimore. It was a statement win for the new-look Bengals and their Super Bowl odds reflect how big of a win it was for this squad.

After beating the Ravens and moving to 5-2 and first place in the division (and entire conference), the Bengals now have +3000 odds to win the Super Bowl, per WynnBET, giving them the 12th-highest odds to win the biggest game in all of sports. That’s WILD.

The Bengals also have thrown their hat into the AFC North title ring with +300 odds, though they’re still sitting behind the Ravens (-116) and Browns (+275) respectively.

No one expected Cincinnati to get off to this hot of a start. Maybe a 5-2 record wouldn’t have been a crazy thought but most would have predicted the two losses to come at the hands of the Packers and Ravens, not the Packers and Bears.

Speaking of Bears, after Cincy dropped that game, they had the second-worst odds to win the Super Bowl with +25000. They entered the season with +10000 odds to win the Super Bowl.

Bengals have come a long way in Super Bowl odds

There’s still a lot of football left to be played this year but if you had asked Bengals fans if they’d take a 5-2 start, a win over the Ravens, and the 12th-best odds to win the Super Bowl seven weeks into the season, every single one of them would have said “HELL YES”.

This has been a dream start of a season for Cincinnati and with the oddsmakers buying into the Bengals, why shouldn’t the rest of the league? This team just took down the best team in the AFC (who currently have +1100 odds to win the Super Bowl) and did it in dominating fashion.

Time to start believing, Cincinnati. The Bengals are good and their odds reflect that.
