Your Bengals

Once again Cincinnati finishes the year profitable for sports bettors, going 10-7 Against The Spread during the regular season.  If you had the Bengals winning the division entering the season, the payout was $2000 on a $100 bet.   Now they are playing in the Super Bowl.  The team opened at long 100-1 odds at some books.

Ultimately, the Alabama Crimson Tide proved too much for Cincy in the Cotton Bowl Classic as Alabama ran for 301 yards, gained 482 overall and dominated the game with the final score being 27-6.

Your Reds

The Reds entered the 2022 MLB season at 40-1 odds to win the World Series.
