Being the aficionados that you are, at least when it comes to what's going on with the Cincinnati Bengals, how would you rate the team's chances of making the Super Bowl next season? On a scale of one to ten, with ten being certainty and one being "I'll probably attend a Justin Bieber concert first, even though I don't have a daughter", make your prediction.
While you do that, know that the odds don't appear to favor the Bengals. And who can blame them. The team's franchise quarterback demanded a trade. There's no feature back on this squad right now and the team's two starting wide receivers are more than likely going to start on other teams in 2011. And the free agents on defense like Johnathan Joseph, Dhani Jones and Brandon Johnson. And who is going to play safety next year?
So it's no wonder that, according to Bodog.com, the Bengals have 60/1 odds to win Super Bowl XLVI next season. Comparatively speaking, those odds are as good as the Cleveland Browns, Jacksonville Jaguars or the Denver Broncos. Yet, they're still not as bad as the Buffalo Bills and Carolina Panthers, both at 100/1.
