The Cincinnati Bengals appeared to be in huge trouble just four weeks through the NFL season, starting 1-3 on the year with an injured star quarterback in Joe Burrow. Since then, Burrow has gotten healthy and the team has gotten back on track as a top-tier Super Bowl contender in the AFC. And their Super Bowl betting odds have certainly followed suit.
According to NBC Sports Bet on Twitter, the Bengals had odds as high as 35-1 to win the Super Bowl before Week 6 of the season.
Those odds are long gone, as they are now just 12-1 to win the Super Bowl on DraftKings Sportsbook.

Those who want to make the Super Bowl bet on the Bengals may want to do so on DraftKings. Their betting odds are even worse on other betting sites, sitting at just 10-1 on BetOnline.

Bengals moving on up

At first glance, the shift for the Bengals is pretty ridiculous. But it makes sense when you consider the current streak they are on, which is against some stiff competition.
Cincinnati has won their last four games. Of those games, three games came against teams with a winning record, with wins over the Seattle Seahawks, Buffalo Bills, and the San Francisco 49ers.
Perhaps the biggest obstacle in potentially making a Super Bowl for the Bengals is the strength of their own division. Every team in the division has a winning record.
The Bengals will look to keep things rolling in Week 10 when they take on the Houston Texans.
