Cincinnati Bengals fans were given a lot to cheer about Sunday when their team upset the Kansas City Chiefs, 34-31, to clinch the AFC North title. Quarterback Joe Burrow led the way with nearly 450 passing yards and four touchdowns, while rookie sensation Ja'Marr Chase had 11 receptions for 266 yards and a trio of TDs.

This year will mark Cincinnati's first playoff appearance since 2015, so it's only natural for fans to wonder if the Bengals really have a shot at winning Super Bowl 56 next month.

Bengals Odds to Win Super Bowl

It's looking like an uphill battle when it comes to Cincinnati's championship aspirations. FanDuel Sportsbook is listing the Bengals at +1800 odds to win Super Bowl 56 — 10th-best in the league.

Those odds also rank fifth among AFC teams, trailing the Chiefs (+500), Buffalo Bills (+800), Tennessee Titans (+1200) and New England Patriots (+1400).

Even if the odds aren't the most favorable, the Bengals are still one of the hottest teams in the NFL, going 5-2 in their last seven games. They've averaged 29.7 points per game over that stretch (T-4th) and have not committed a single turnover in their last three outings.

At the same time, the Bengals' 21.7 points against in those games (T-16th) show that defensive improvements can be made.

Nevertheless, the Bengals are an exciting team to watch and a lot of football are interested in seeing just how far this playoff run can go.
