Ohio Sports Betting: It’s the Bengals turn on MNF

We’re more than 24 hours into legalized Ohio sports betting and the Buckeye state is the holiday weekend on a huge note with the Cincinnati Bengals playing the Buffalo Bills on Monday Night Football.

In what could be the marquis matchup of NFL Week 17, the Bengals are currently a +2.5 point underdog at home. The public is currently backing the Bills, as 56% of the total handle is currently on Buffalo to cover -2.5, according to DraftKings.

The public is expecting a shootout, though, as 78% of the total handle is on the over of 50.5 points.

So do the trends give the Bengals any shot to cover? To win?

Bengals and Bills Betting Trends

What’s the public looking at right now for this high-powered matchup? The Bengals are the hot team, but the Bills are still the favorite to win the Super Bowl at +350.

The Cleveland Browns gave Ohioans who backed them a reason to celebrate yesterday when they routed the Carson Wentz-led Washington Commanders 24-10. The Browns were actually underdogs in the matchup and covered the spread quite easily. Hopefully state bettors backed the under, as the two teams didn’t do enough to score more than 40.5 points to hit the over.
