As the hot seat talk with Marvin Lewis heats up, you can now bet on if he’ll remain with the Bengals in 2019.

Bovada has released their odds on if Lewis is head coach of the Bengals for Game 1 of the 2019 season. Despite all of the hot seat talk amid what’s likely to be a third-straight losing season, oddsmakers still think it’s more likely Lewis remains with the Bengals, but it’s far from a lock:

‘Yes’ is at -220, while ‘no’ is at +155.

Just like the odds indicate, it’s probably going to be a close call as to whether Lewis is back when decision time comes. He may actually be the one who decides it’s time to move on, though we’ll believe it when we see it.

These aren’t the only odds Bovada has that have some relation to the Bengals. They’re also doing prop bets for who the next coach to be fired will be, but Lewis is not among the candidates for the next coach to leave their post:

  • John Harbaugh 13/5
  • Todd Bowles 15/4
  • Steve Wilks 15/4
  • Vance Joseph 6/1
  • Dirk Koetter 6/1
  • Doug Marrone 13/2
  • Adam Gase 8/1
  • Pat Shurmur 8/1
  • Sean McDermott 15/1

It’s crazy to think John Harbaugh, whose team is actually holding a spot in the Wild Card playoffs and could still win the AFC North, not to mention he’s led his team to a Super Bowl win, is likelier to be fired before the end of the season than Lewis.
