The Cincinnati Bengals failed to win their first-ever Super Bowl championship, and instead, they were forced to watch the Los Angeles Rams celebrate after knocking off the good guys 23-20.

With the season in the books officially, who is favored to win next year’s Super Bowl?

According to WynnBET, the Kansas City Chiefs and Buffalo Bills lead the pack with +700 odds. This isn’t surprising considering the Chiefs went to the previous two Super Bowls and the Bills have been a popular pick to make it during that time as well.

Cincinnati is actually tied for the third-best odds when it comes to who will win Super Bowl LVII, however, sitting with +1200 odds. They’re tied with the Rams and 49ers.

As for the AFC North, the Ravens have the second-best odds with +2000 while the Browns sit at +3000 odds and the Steelers have +7500.

Cincinnati Bengals tied for third-best odds to win Super Bowl LVII

There’s absolutely reason to believe this team can be back in the big game next season. First and foremost, they have Joe Burrow, who is only going to be entering the third year of his career.

Secondly, the Bengals have a ton of young talent, ranging from Burrow to Ja’Marr Chase to Tee Higgins to Joe Mixon, none of whom are slated to hit free agency any time soon. They also have a beefed-up defense that kept the stripes in Sunday’s game and those players, except for Jessie Bates, will be back in 2022.

Third, the Bengals have plenty of dough to spend on their biggest weaknesses. The offensive line needs major fine-tuning but the stripes have the money to ensure that unit gets better.

Some of the reasons working against Cincy, however, is the gauntlet of not just their own division but the rest of the AFC. They might not even end up being the favorites in their own division next season and even if they are, can they get past both the Bills and the Chiefs in next season’s playoffs?

It’s not surprising to see Cincinnati with some of the best odds to win next year’s Super Bowl but this would have been more fun to talk about had they won the title this year.
