2012-2013 Regular Season: 10-6 SU | 9-6-1 ATS
2012-2013 Postseason: 0-1 SU | 0-1 ATS
The Cincinnati Bengals shared the AFC North’s best record with the eventual Super Bowl XLVII Champion Baltimore Ravens last regular season with a 10-6 SU slate and then lost to the Houston Texans in the wild-card round. Unlike the Ravens, this Bengals season was considered a success both in terms of record (10-6 / 9-6-1 ATS), and in terms of the progression of their core.
For the Bengals to compete with the AFC’s best, they’re #1 need is another quality wide receiver to pair up with A.J. Green. Though no major additions to that position have yet to be made this offseason, the team re-signed Andrew Hawkins and picked up Cobi Hamilton from Arkansas during the draft. The Bengals are priced +190 to win the AFC North division and priced for 2014 Super Bowl odds at +4000
After a week 1 battle with the Chicago Bears, the Bengals will have their home opener against the Pittsburgh Steelers. They beat the Steelers in their last game while also covering their 3-point spread as underdogs. Then in Week 5 the team will host another champion quarterback in Tom Brady, whose New England Patriots are a measly 2-5 ATS in their last 7 games in Cincinnati.
