All it took was one shellacking against the New England Patriots for Vegas to lower their expectations about the Cincinnati Bengals. Prior to Cincinnati's disastrous Sunday Night Football defeat, the Bengals had 9/1 odds to win the Super Bowl. A few turnovers with a swiss-cheesed defense and Vegas gets a little itchy.
According to Bovada, those odds have sunk to 12/1 -- similar to the San Francisco 49ers and worse than the Green Bay Packers, New England Patriots, and San Diego Chargers. The Seattle Seahawks (4/1) and Denver Broncos (17/4) remain the favorites to win Super Bowl XLIX. The Raiders (1000/1), Titans (1000/1) and Jaguars (2500/1) have no shot, according to Bovada (and common sense).
Cincinnati also has 13/2 odds to win the AFC Championship game, with the Broncos (7/4), Chargers (9/2) and Patriots *(5/1) sporting better numbers than Cincinnati.
To win the AFC North:
Cincinnati Bengals - 5/6
Baltimore Ravens - 13/4
Pittsburgh Steelers - 7/2
Cleveland Browns - 9/1
Of course we wonder how much that changes with A.J. Green apparently hurting his toe again, and Marvin Jones "not close" to returning at this stage.
