Dolphins vs. Bengals Pick
Will the Thursday Night Football matchup this week in the NFL be a defensive struggle between the Dolphins and Bengals at 8:25PM ET?
According to oddsmakers from online sports book BetDSI, the Bengals are 7-point home favorites versus the Dolphins while the over/under currently sits at 44.5 points. As of this writing, neither the side nor the total have moved off the original numbers posted by oddsmakers.
The Dolphins picked up their first win of the season last Sunday with a 30-24 overtime victory over the Browns, who should have won the game but kicker Cody Parkey missed three field goals, including one in the closing seconds. Miami is now off to a 1-2 start to the season and covered only once, which came in Week 1 as a 10.5-point underdog in Seattle.
The Bengals lost for the second consecutive week, dropping a 29-17 decision as a 3.5-point favorite versus the defending Super Bowl champion Broncos in their home-opener last Sunday. Cincinnati is now 1-2 on the year and 1-2 against the spread, with its lone victory and cover coming in Week 1 as a 1-point underdog in a 23-22 victory over the New York Jets.
OUR PICK: The under is 3-1-1 in the last five meetings between these two teams and is a perfect 6-0 in the Bengals' last six games versus an opponent that has a losing record. The under is also 3-1-1 in Cincinnati's last five games played on Thursday night, is 8-3 in its last 11 games versus AFC opponents and is 10-4 in its last 14 games overall. The under is 5-2 in the Bengals' last seven home games and is 7-0-1 in the Dolphins' last eight Thursday night games as well.
