  • The Cincinnati Bengals are -250 to make the postseason in 2024-25.
  • Cincinnati missed the playoffs last year, ending a streak of two straight years in the postseason.
  • Why the Bengals’ schedule breakdown makes them a good bet to reach the playoffs.

Based on NFL odds and Bengals playoff odds, the Cincinnati Bengals are predicted to make the postseason this year. 

The Bengals are -250 to make the playoffs after finishing last in the AFC North last season. That implies a probability of 71.4%. 

Comparatively, the team that reached the Super Bowl in 2022 is +200 to miss the postseason. That price implies a probability of 33.3%.

Prediction: Will the Cincinnati Bengals Make the Playoffs? 

I predict the Bengals will make the postseason this year. 

Although they play in the hardest division in football, they play the sixth-easiest schedule based on opponent win totals. 

Cincinnati has also made a number of strong free agency additions to their defense. Vonn Bell and Geno Stone arrive in the secondary while Sheldon Rankins replaces D.J. Reader.

When Was the Last Time the Cincinnati Bengals Won the Super Bowl? 

The Bengals have never won the Super Bowl in franchise history, but it’s not for a lack of trying. 

The Bengals have lost the NFL grand finale three times, including their defeat to the Los Angeles Rams in 2022.
