Paul Brown Stadium will be the site of a key AFC matchup on Sunday as the Cincinnati Bengals play host to the Miami Dolphins. The Bengals enter this Week 8 matchup with a 2-4 record (2-4 ATS), while Miami comes into the game with a 3-3 mark (4-2 ATS). The game is set to get underway at 1 PM EST.
Miami comes into the game as somewhat of a backwards team, having gone 3-0 on the road and 0-3 at home on the season. Last week, the ‘Phins lost an absolute heartbreaker to Big Ben and the Steelers by a score of 23-22, in a game that was shrouded in controversy over a fumble at the end of the game. The team has been up and down so far this season. They opened with two road victories, then dropped 2 in a row at home. After winning on the road again in Week 6, they lost at home last week. The league appears to have figured out Miami’s wildcat formation, as the Dolphins rank 24th in the NFL, scoring just 18.5 points per game. On defense, they are allowing 22.5 per game, which is 21st in the league.

The Bengals come into this contest mired in a 3 game losing streak and haven’t won a game since September. The team dug itself an ugly 24-6 hole against Atlanta last week before racing back to take a 25-24 lead. Unfortunately for Cincy, they went on to drop the game 39-32 and it is starting to look like the T.Ocho. Show is not working out as planned. Although the team is 6th in passing in the NFL at just over 270 yards per game, QB Carson Palmer has been struggling with mistakes. He has thrown 6 interceptions on the year but many have come at a bad time and he has had a number of other passes flat out dropped by the opposing defense. The Bengals’ own defense is complicating matters by allowing 23.5 points per game, which ranks 25th in the league.

Dolphins vs. Bengals Betting Predictions:
Spread Prediction (TOP PLAY) – This game is considered so close by Vegas that there is no spread. It would pay a bit more if you think Miami will win the game outright and I think they will. Cincinnati is an absolute mess right now and Miami is a perfect 3-0 on the road to this point. They were one questionable call away from knocking off Pittsburgh last week and maybe entering the conversation for who the best team in the NFL is. Miami has taken 9 of their last 10 ATS as the underdog and 13 of 16 as a road dog.
Game Total Prediction – Cincinnati played a track meet last week with Atlanta. This week, I expect Miami’s DB’s to hold the passing game in check for the Bengals. Ten of Miami’s last 12 games as a road underdog have gone under the posted total. Also, 9 of Cincy’s last 12 as the home favorite have gone under the total.
