As the National Football League season kicks off this week, here are some futures bets that might have good value if you're an interested Cincinnati Bengals fan:

Bengals season win total over/under 6.5 – When the schedule came out, my immediate gut reaction was a healthy Joe Burrow and an improved offensive line would mean an eight-win season. I've stuck with that despite the early camp performance and continuing game of musical chairs on the line. The money and tickets are on the under (-122), so I'll take the over (+100) and bet the number I thought was safe.

Bengals to win AFC North (+2200) – Look, even the most optimistic fans have to admit this is about as likely as winning the Super Bowl this year. The odds are massive for a reason. If you want to have fun and throw $10 for a potential $220 payout, have at it. The Baltimore Ravens (+120) and Cleveland Browns (+145) are the plays here. If you're drinking the Cleveland Kool-Aid, +145 is a good price for a team that seems destined to play well into January.

Joe Burrow bets

Quarterback Joe Burrow to win Comeback Player of the Year (+600) – If you listen to national talking heads, you might as well doublecheck Dak Prescott's (+250) mailing address because this award is already in the bag. I like the value with Burrow here. Prescott has battled some nagging hiccups in his rehab and while the Dallas Cowboys have plenty of weapons, I don't buy this being a certainty. Burrow shares the same odds as Carolina Panthers RB Christian McCaffrey.
