The Cincinnati Bengals are back on track after a two-game skid, beating the Raiders 32-13 on Sunday evening. The win was big for their playoff odds but what took the biggest leap was their odds to win the AFC North.
WynnBET currently gives the Bengals +400 odds to win the AFC North, sitting second in the division. The Ravens have the best odds at -160 while the Browns aren’t far behind Cincinnati sitting with +460 odds after their narrow defeat over the winless Lions. The Steelers have the worst odds to win the division at +1000.
Just a week ago, the Bengals and Steelers were flipping back and forth between having the worst odds and second-to-worst odds and now, Cincinnati has the second-best odds to win the division.
This shows just how crazy the AFC North is and how the division is changing each week. Three of the four teams won their Week 11 matchup and the one team who didn’t — that being the Steelers — saw their AFC North odds taking the biggest hit.
Cincinnati Bengals AFC North odds
We’ll have a more significant shift in division odds next week, as it’ll be Bengals vs Steelers in one game and Browns vs Ravens in another one. If the Bengals and Ravens win their respective matchups, they’ll continue to see their odds soar while the other two teams will get buried further in the race.
This division has been beating up on each other like crazy, which didn’t use to be the case. Baltimore and Pittsburgh owned the AFC North for quite some time but the Bengals aren’t the pushover they once were, making it more interesting.
While the Bengals have three more divisional showdowns remaining, the Ravens somehow have only played one divisional opponent to this point. They’ll face five in the final six weeks of NFL action, which will give us a great indication of who the best team in the division truly is.
