CINCINNATI — The Athletic's Vic Tafur broke down his top bets for 2024 NFL season win totals and he has the Bengals going over 10.5 wins as one of his picks.

Cincinnati failed to beat its preseason total in 2023 after Joe Burrow missed a good chunk of the campaign.

"Hey, the last we checked, Tee Higgins and Trey Hendrickson are still on the roster," Tafur wrote. "And Sheldon Rankins was a very nice add on defense. The Bengals also have given Joe Burrow perhaps the best offensive line of his career and can get the steam train going early, thanks to their schedule. Cincinnati opens against the Patriots, Chiefs, Commanders, and Panthers. Outside of the defending champs, that’s three teams with new coaches, two with new quarterbacks, and last year’s No. 1 pick, who still has much to prove."

BetMGM has the best line on the Bengals to go over their win total as of this writing (-125 odds).
