Bengals vs. Dolphins Week 13 Prediction
At 7-4, the Dolphins are in a good spot to make the playoffs but they can’t afford to slip up at home on Sunday when they host the 2-8 Bengals at 1:00 p.m. ET. Is 10.5 points too much to lay with the host Dolphins?
453 Cincinnati Bengals (+10.5) at 454 Miami Dolphins (-10.5); o/u 42.5
1:00 p.m. ET, Sunday, December 6, 2020
Venue: Hard Rock Stadium, Miami Gardens, FL
Cincinnati Bengals DFS Spin
Giovani Bernard rushed eight times for 32 yards in the Bengals' Week 12 loss to the Giants, adding two receptions for 17 additional yards. Bernard had seven more carries than any other Bengals back, but with the passing game completely incapable of sustaining drives, there wasn't much work to go around. Bernard has now been held below 10 totes in three straight games. Joe Mixon must miss at least one more game on injured reserve, but with bye weeks functionally over and the player pool flush, Bernard is struggling to provide RB2 relevance in a dead-letter offense. The Dolphins are a shy-away Week 13 matchup.
Miami Dolphins DFS Spin
Tua Tagovailoa (left thumb) is questionable to play Week 13 against the Bengals. He was limited during Friday's practice. Dolphins head coach Brian Flores said he would determine whether the rookie can start Week 13 after evaluating practice film. Tua was seen this week wearing a dark wrap on his injured throwing thumb. Ryan Fitzpatrick could draw another start in an excellent matchup. Fitz would be a mid-range QB if Tua is inactive.
