NFL Betting - Chad Johnson Speaks Up, NFL Odds

Anehein, CA (PressExposure) June 22, 2009 -- NFL bettors take note

I’m not sure if you’ve been paying real close attention to the Cincinnati Bengals lately, but they’ve been bad, real bad the last while. No one would blame you if you haven’t thought much about this lightweight from the AFC North division. But if you are into sports betting, you need to be looking at all NFL teams and checking where they’re at compared to the NFL future odds [http://www.sportsbetting.com/content/nfl-betting/nfl-future-odds.html] market.

The reason the Bengals are being mentioned at this point before NFL pre-season betting gets going is because one of their problem-children, Chad Ochocinco (yes, that’s Chad Johnson, but he is now known as Chad Ochocinco) stepped up to a microphone and guaranteed his team will make the playoffs.

He might not be getting it done on the football field, but Ochocinco can still entertain. So can they make the playoffs? Can they take a run at the AFC North division title? What about going even further.

The big question from a sports betting viewpoint is whether there is any value in betting on the Bengals considering their NFL odds.

NFL Odds:

Online sportsbook SPORTSBETTING.com has all the NFL live lines [http://www.sportsbetting.com/betting-odds/nfl/1.html] up for pre-season betting on the teams who will win their division, their conference and the Super Bowl. You’d be correct of you guessed the Bengals are not one of the favorites in any of those categories.

AFC Division Odds:

Cincy are currently sitting at +1000 to win the AFC North at most online sportsbooks. That means a $10 bettor would make a $100 if they did win the division.

What about being a real threat to win the Lamar Hunt trophy and thus the AFC?

Not so much. The Bengals are listed at +5000 to win the AFC championship this season.

And of course the odds keep getting steeper as the talk gets crazier about a possible Cincinnati Bengal hoisting the Vince Lombardi Trophy. Although that said, how many predicted the Arizona Cardinals would come within a last minute play from winning it all.

Anyway, the NFL betting volume on the Bengals to win the Super Bowl has been low so far this year. They are a +10,000 longshot to win it all.

NFL Betting:

As for who are sports bettors targeting, it’s the usual crew in the AFC: New England is getting a lot of future odd action, with Pittsburgh, the Indianapolis Colts and the San Diego Chargers also riding high with sports bettors.

So back to the question of whether the Bengals offer any value for those who want to get some action going with NFL future betting.

In short, No. This is a tough division with the Steelers and Ravens at the top. Cincinnati won’t be as bad as last year, but even a healthy Carson Palmer won’t be able to move them ahead of the division leaders.

I don’t see how they make the playoffs this season.

There are some great opportunities right now for NFL prop bets and NFL future bets if you are doing your homework and looking for good NFL odds at online sportsbook.

Good luck and NFL pre-season betting is just around the corner.
