NFL Free Pick: Take Cincinnati. According to latest NFL trends, the road team is 5-0 against the spread in the last five meetings between these two teams. The Dolphins are also 1-4 against the spread versus a team with a winning record, 0-4 ATS in their last four games overall and 1-4 ATS in their last five games in October. On the other side, the Bengals are 8-3 against the number in their last 11 games versus AFC opponents, 5-2 ATS in their last seven games versus a team with a losing record and 4-0 ATS in their last four games following a straight up win of more than 14 points.
These two teams are heading in different directions, with the Bengals winning four in a row and the Dolphins dropping four straight. There's also some conflict in Miami's locker room as left tackle Jonathan Martin left the team following an episode involving a prank. With the Dolphins' offensive line already struggling, the Bengals' defense should dominate this matchup.
