CINCINNATI BENGALS VS. MIAMI DOLPHINS PREDICTION

The Dolphins come into this game as one of the two unbeaten teams in football. Miami had a massive win last week over the Buffalo Bills which caught the eyes of many. The Dolphins are number one on many people's power rankings entering this week and for a good reason. They are led by signal caller Tua Tugagovia and they have surrounded Tua with some of the best weapons in football.

When it comes to pure speed it is tough to compete with Tyreek Hill and Jaylen Waddle. Hill and Waddle have combined for six hundred and fifty-nine yards on the season. That is more yards than eleven teams combined. They have been a matchup nightmare for teams all season long and the Bengals will have to limit their production if they want to get a much-needed home win. It has not been a great start to the season for the defending AFC Champions.

The Bengals lost their first two games of the season as a betting favorite but they were able to bounce back last weekend when they blew out the New York Jets. This is a team that despite the sluggish start still feels extremely confident that they will be a playoff team led by Joe Burrow. Burrow also has some of the best weapons in the game headlined by Ja'Marr Chase and Tee Higgins.  

I am all over the Bengals on the -3 spread. This is the perfect spot at home for Cincinnati. Let’s break this game down a little bit. Tua comes into this game dealing with multiple injuries and it is still a question mark on if he will even play. Even if Tua does play he enters this game on a short week after being beaten up against Buffalo. I would not expect him to be his sharpest.

Secondly, the Dolphins are fresh off of a massive win over the Bills and this looks like a letdown spot off of an emotional win. That is why I believe we see the Bengals favored and I trust that we can cash this bet in with ease!
