It didn’t take long for the sportsbooks to change their odds when Joe Burrow hopped onto a golf cart and off the field during a practice at Cincinnati Bengals training camp on Wednesday.

Almost immediately, Caesars Sportsbook took the Bengals off the board and anything related to them. About an hour or so later, they were back on the board when it was announced by Bengals coach Zac Taylor that Burrow suffered a calf strain and nothing major that could potentially keep him out for the season.

When their odds returned, they essentially were back at where they were before – at +1000 to win the Super Bowl (which means a $100 would return a profit of $1,000 on a winning wager). However, other possible bets were taken down, such as conference winner for the Kansas City Chiefs, the Buffalo Bills and the Bengals.

Also, odds for the AFC North champion for all four teams in the division also were removed, as of late Thursday afternoon. Other books followed suit, including DraftKings, which had no AFC North division odds as of 6:15 p.m. ET.


Odds courtesy of FanDuel Sportsbook as of Thursday, July 27

Team  Odds 
Kansas City Chiefs +600
Buffalo Bills +900
Cincinnati Bengals +1000
New York Jets +1600
Baltimore Ravens +1800
