While the NFL's Conference Championship Round has yet to begin, that hasn't stopped fans from fantasizing about which two teams will be left to compete in Super Bowl 56. One of the possible matchups for this year's Super Bowl is a clash between the San Francisco 49ers and Cincinnati Bengals.
Even though the matchup is far from being confirmed, FanDuel Sportsbook has odds for the hypothetical collision.
49ers vs Bengals Super Bowl 56
FanDuel Sportsbook is leaning towards the 49ers, listing them as the slight 2.5-point favorites in this hypothetical Super Bowl 56 matchup. They are -105 to cover the spread, while the Bengals' odds to do so sit at -115.
San Francisco is also the -134 moneyline favorite if these two teams meet in the NFL's finale. Meanwhile, Cincinnati is the +114 underdog in this scenario.
Both teams have far from an easy path to turn this hypothetical matchup into a reality. The Bengals are 7-point road underdogs in their AFC Championship contest against the Kansas City Chiefs. On the other hand, the 49ers are 3.5-point underdogs against the Los Angeles Rams in the NFC Championship Game.
Although, both the 49ers and Bengals have had recent success against their upcoming opponents. San Francisco is 6-0 against the Rams over the last three seasons, while Cincinnati scored a 34-31 victory over the Chiefs in Week 17 of the 2021 NFL season.
Assuming that both underdogs can recreate that success, this hypothetical Super Bowl matchup might not be that big of a longshot.
