Everyone has high expectations for Bengals No. 1 pick Joe Burrow. 

The LSU signal-caller had one of the best seasons in college football history last year. He won the Heisman Trophy, led the nation in multiple passing categories including yards (5,671), passing touchdowns (60) and completion percentage (76.3). 

He's expected to help turn around a Bengals organization that has had four straight losing seasons. 

Burrow is favored to win NFL Offensive Rookie of the Year. His odds are set at 5/2 according to Bet Online. Tua Tagovailoa is second at 8/1. 

They set Burrow's over/under for passing yards at 3,800 and passing touchdowns at 24½. They also set the over/under for interceptions at 16½.

The Bengals added another weapon to their arsenal when they selected Tee Higgins with the No. 33 pick in the draft. The former Clemson wide receiver is tied for the ninth-best Offensive Rookie of the Year odds at 22/1.

Linebacker Akeem Davis-Gaither has the sixth-highest odds to win NFL Defensive Rookie of the Year. The Bengals selected the Appalachian State product in the fourth round. Every player ahead of Davis-Gaither was drafted in the first two rounds. 

Former Wyoming linebacker Logan Wilson may offer the best value of any of the Bengals on the list. His odds are 40/1, despite Cincinnati taking him with pick No. 65 and a full round earlier than Davis-Gaither. 

Seventh round selection Markus Bailey made the list with 100/1 odds. 

Here's a complete list of odds for both awards:
