Joe Burrow vs. Tua Tagavialoa will get after it on Thursday Night Football as the Dolphins head to Cincinnati to take on the Bengals. The two had an epic performance in college with LSU vs. Alabama in 2019 as LSU won 46-41 in an epic shootout.

I'm unsure if that performance can be replicated but we should still get an exciting game between two AFC contenders. With the Cincinnati Bengals vs. Miami Dolphins set to get underway to start Week 4, let's look at the five most popular bets for this game.

1. Dolphins +3.5


I don't understand the sportsbooks thinking and neither does the public. 55% of the bets are on the Dolphins to cover the +3.5. I know Tua is banged up but this Miami team looks like a juggernaut. Are we really to believe that Cincy is all the way back after last week's performance and that they deserve to be 3.5-point favorites on a short week? I don't buy that at all.

2. Over 47.5


The Miami Dolphins and Cincinnati Bengals are two teams that are in the top 10 on offense. Naturally, it's not too surprising to see 60% of bets on the over at a total like 47.5. What the trends tell you though is a different story. Unders are 29-18-1 on the season and in prime time, that jumps up to 7-3. This number may feel low but proceed with caution if you are thinking about the over.

Tyreek Hill 1st Touchdown +750 (Bet $100 to win $750)

Bettors are all over Tyreek Hill to score first tonight. He comes in at +750 to find the endzone first. So far in his Dolphins tenure, he has 317 yards and two touchdowns in his first three games. To say the trade was well worth it for this offense is probably an understatement.

Tyreek Hill Anytime Touchdown -110 (Bet $110 to win $100)

Bettors love Tyreek today. His anytime touchdown scorer price is at -110. In his last 35 games he has found the endzone 26 times. With that math, Hill records a touchdown at a .74 touchdowns per game rate.

Tyreek Hill over 72.5 receiving yards -115 (Bet $115 to win $100)

Last but certainly not least is his receiving total. Bettors like Hill to eclipse 72.5 yards in this game and it's hard to disagree. He went for 94 and 190 in his first two games as a Dolphin. Last week he came well under with just 33 yards but that was against the stellar Buffalo defense. Hill should clear this number on Thursday Night Football.
