If you are a bettor who believed in Cincinnati Bengals before the season to win the NFLultimate prize, you’re one win away from a great payday.
Cincinnati was considered a long shot to win its division, let alone the Super Bowl this season. Now the Bengals 13-7 head to the Big Game after upsetting the second-seeded Kansas City Chiefs 27-24 in an overtime thriller on Sunday in the AFC Championship game after leading 21- 3.
