Miami Dolphins vs Cincinnati Bengals NFL Betting Prediction
Free Pick by: David Price (BetSheet.com)
Odds: Bengals -7, 44.5
Date/Time: Thursday Sept 29th, 8:25pm EST
Miami Dolphins (1-2 SU, 1-2 ATS)
The Miami Dolphins blew an 11 point lead but came through in overtime and avoided an 0-3 start by defeating the Cleveland Browns 30-24 last Sunday. Ryan Tannehill lead his team to victory and finished the game going 25 for 39 with 319 yards and three touchdowns but he did throw two interceptions. On the season, Tannehill has thrown for 892 yards, 5 TD’s to 4 INT’s. Jarvis Landry has been Tannehill’s favorite target and Landry had a big game vs the Browns with 7 catches for 120 yards and 1 TD. Miami has allowed 415 yards per game (29th in the NFL). Points wise, they’ve conceded 22.3 per game, but were certainly exposed a bit by the Browns weak attack on Sunday as they were beat many times deep down field.The Dolphins and Bengals meet once every few years but the Dolphins are 7-1 (SU and ATS) in eight games all-time at Cincinnati, and are 11-2 (9-2 ATS) overall against the Bengals.
Cincinnati Bengals (1-2 SU, 1-2 ATS)
The Bengals currently aren’t playing anywhere near the level they were during their 12-4 campaign last season. The tough early-season schedule hasn’t helped, but they played another sloppy game in their 29-17 home loss to the Denver Broncos. Penalties, missed plays, and unusually poor defense all contributed to the loss, which dropped them to 1-2 (0-2-1 ATS) on the season.Andy Daulton threw for 25 TD’s in 2015 but has found the end zone just twice on the season, throwing for 938 yards, 2 TD’s to 2 INT’s. Jeremy Hill led the way on the ground with 97 yards on 17 carries with two touchdowns against the Broncos. The Bengals as a team rushed for 143 yards. They now face a Miami run defense that have given up at least 160 rushing yards in back-to-back games. I fully expect the Bengals to pound the round and wear down this Miami defense.

What is David Price Predicting?
“Both teams have their flaws and both teams are desperate to get to .500. In this particular matchup, I still favor the Bengals defense over the Dolphins defense. Miami conceded 169 yards on the ground last week, and sit 30th in the NFL allowing an average of 147 rushing yards per game. Expect Jeremy Hill to get the pill often and provide Andy Daulton with the chance to go play action and test the Dolphins defense with deep balls, something they have been susceptible to in weeks 1 thru 3. Look for the Bengals to get the win Thursday night in a complete team effort and cover the -7 spread”. – David Price, BetSheet.com
