2014 NFL Betting odds Cincinnati Bengals 2015 Super Bowl

LAS VEGAS, NV (The Spread) – After qualifying for the playoffs in each of the past three seasons, will the Cincinnati Bengals take a step back this year?

The Bengals were rather quiet in free agency, although they did add key roster depth in quarterback Jason Campbell, offensive tackle Marshall Newhouse, linebacker Dontay Moch, and safety Danieal Manning. The team also parted with receiver Andrew Hawkins, offensive tackle Anthony Collins, defensive end Michael Johnson, and cornerback Brandon Ghee.

Cincinnati’s coaching staff also saw major changes this offseason as Jay Gruden became the Redskins’ new head coach and Mike Zimmer was hired to be the Vikings’ next front man. Hue Jackson was hired to replace Gruden as offensive coordinator while former linebackers coach Paul Guenther was prompted to defensive coordinator in order to fill Zimmer’s shoes.

In the draft the Bengals used their first-round selection on Michigan State cornerback Darqueze Dennard and then added depth to their offensive backfield with the drafting of LSU running back Jeremy Hill. The team went back to defense in the third round by nabbing West Virginia defensive end Will Clarke before the selection of center Russell Bodine from North Carolina. Three-time (twice as a starter) national champion A.J. McCarron of Alabama was selected in the fifth round.

According to oddsmakers from online sports book BetDSI, the Bengals’ current win total is listed at 9. Considering the Bengals have won at least nine games in three consecutive years, the over might entice bettors but I would lay off altogether. The Ravens should rebound following a down post-Super Bowl year, while the Steelers haven’t gone three consecutive seasons without making the playoffs since the late 90s. Thus, the Bengals could be in store for a regression this season and besides, 9 wins might wind up being their ceiling anyway so where’s the value?
