The Cincinnati Bengals won the AFC North and earned the three seed in the AFC Playoffs are finishing the regular season with an 11-5 record. Andy Dalton and company are not viewed as the AFC's biggest threat to win the Lombardi Trophy; however, they are seen as a potential AFC Championship and Super Bowl contender. The latest 2014 Super Bowl Odds release has Cincinnati listed at +650 odds to win the AFC Championship Game and +1800 odds to win Super Bowl XLVIII ($100 wins $1800). The Bengals are also a -270 money line favorite to take out the Chargers in Sunday's Wild Card clash at Paul Brown Stadium.
Cincinnati figures to reach the divisional round of the playoffs given its prowess at home, but after it will need some good fortune if it hopes to reach the Super Bowl. The Bengals will, in all likelihood, have to go through New England or Denver or both in order to reach the championship game.
Cincy's suspect road performance this season makes a Super Bowl appearance an unlikely prospect. Marvin Lewis' troops were 3-5 away from home with losses to the Bears, Browns, Dolphins, Ravens, and Steelers.

To beat the San Diego Chargers in Sunday's Wild Card Game -270
To Win the 2014 AFC Championship Game +650 (three of six)
