Giovani Bernard and AJ Green Put Bengals on the Betting MapThu, 02 Oct 2014 14:48
The Cincinnati Bengals are the only remaining undefeated AFC club, and their hot start is starting to influence the sportsbook. Behind last year’s finalists, the Bengals are 9/1 to win the Super Bowl. In Week 5, coming off of a bye week, they’ll look to hit the 4-0 mark on the road against the New England Patriots. Cincinatti is the -1.5 favorite heading into the match. While the NFL betting community, and even fans, may doubt the Bengals’ ability to extend their winning streak much longer, they’re still a captivating team to bet on. With superstars like AJ Green and Giovani Bernard on board, it’s hard to look away. At 22 years old, Bernard has emerged as a potent rushing and receiving threat. Through three games he’s breached the 300-total-yard mark and has three rushing touchdowns. Wideout Green already has over 225 yards receiving and one touchdown. Youth and flair may not be enough to earn respect from oddsmakers, but continued success on the field certainly will. A big win over a high profile team like New England would help them establish themselves as household names, and they’re also facing off on a prime time matchup Sunday night.
