The Cincinnati Bengals are on an incredible run. After winning three of their last four regular season games to get into the playoffs, the Bengals pulled off three wins against the Las Vegas Raiders, Tennessee Titans and Kansas City Chiefs to reach Super Bowl LVI and a matchup with the Los Angeles Rams.

The Bengals have covered the spread in seven consecutive games heading into the Super Bowl. The line for Super Bowl LVI currently sits at +4.5 for the Bengals, according to FanDuel Sportsbook.

Over their last five games, the Bengals have covered a spread greater than 4.5 points in four of them.

Conversely, on the Rams side, Los Angeles has only covered the spread in two of its last five games, and neither of those were more than a 3.5-point spread.

While Cincinnati is still considered to be the clear underdog in this matchup, Joe Burrow has proven over the last two months that he will be going up against a spread that he has no problem covering.
