Four teams remain in contention for this year’s Super Bowl and Louisiana sports fans seem to be pledging their allegiance to the Cincinnati Bengals.

After a 9-8 record this current Football season, the New Orleans Saints finished in second place in the NFC South, behind the Tampa Bay Buccaneers.

On the road, New Orleans turned up. Their record on the road was 6-3, picking up notable victories against the Patriots and the Buccaneers.

Home form was the issue, with the Saints recording just three wins in eight home games. As a result, New Orleans missed out on an all-important place in the NFL Playoffs.

This leaves the people of Louisiana with one question on their minds. Who do we want to win the Super Bowl now?

‘Who Dat?’ Becoming ‘Who Dey?’

There are four franchises remaining in the battle to win the Lombardi Trophy this year:

  • Kansas City Chiefs (+120)
  • Los Angles Rams (+200)
  • San Francisco 49ers (+450)
  • Cincinnati Bengals (+800)

That being said, there seems to be one team that Saints fans in Louisiana are in support of during the latter stages of the season. People are rooting for the Bengals.

The Joe Burrow Effect

Joe Burrow leads the line for Cincinnati. Where did he play his College Football? At LSU, of course!

The Heisman Trophy-winning quarterback developed his game at the prestigious Louisiana State University, and people in Louisiana love him for that.

Cincinnati Bengals Betting Odds

Obviously, there are other LSU alumni in the the NFL Playoffs. The recently eliminated Buccaneers had Leonard Fournette and Devin White, but who in Louisiana is going to cheer on the Saints’ fierce NFC South rivals?

Current Super Bowl favorites, the Chiefs, have former LSU men Clyde Edwards-Helaire and Darrel Williams in their ranks. However, these guys don’t have the same appeal as Joe Burrow. He could be the best QB in the NFL, and it’s always fun backing the underdog.

More LSU Boys in Cincinnati

Joe Burrow is the star man from Louisiana, but he’s not alone. Wide receive Ja’Marr Chase was outstanding at LSU in 2018 and 2019 before heading to Cincinnati. In that time, he won the Biletnikoff Award for best receiver.

Cincinnati Bengals Super Bowl Odds

The Bengals also have rookie defensive tackle Tyler Shelvin, formerly of LSU. Not as high-profile as Burrow or Chase, but a former Tiger nonetheless.

The Bengals short-term allegiance in Louisiana isn’t just a theory. Many bar owners in the Pelican State have noted that there have been a surprising number of #9 Bengals jerseys in their establishments during the Playoffs, with a similar trend expected this weekend.

Cincinnati Bengals’ Next Game(s)

So, do the Bengals have just one game left in the tank this season? Or will we be seeing them in Los Angeles on February 13?

Well, they have arguably the toughest hurdle between them and a place in this year’s Super Bowl. A clash with the Kansas City Chiefs.

The Chiefs defeated the Buffalo Bills in overtime after an incredibly entertaining matchup last week. The Bills were strong Super Bowl contenders, until Kansas City came along.

Here’s the matchup:

Cincinnati Bengals @ Kansas City Chiefs (Sunday, Jan 30, 3:00pm ET).

The Chiefs are currently 7.5-point favorites at BetMGM Sportsbook. That is to be expected for a team that has been in the previous two Super Bowls, winning one.

Louisiana Super Bowl Betting

If the Bengals are victorious on Sunday, they will face either the San Francisco 49ers or the Los Angeles Rams in the Super Bowl.

Could Joe Burrow & Co. really do it this year? Louisiana sportsbooks think they could!
