NFL Odds Week 5: Dolphins Vs. Bengals

Jake Roth-US PRESSWIRE - Presswire

The Cincinnati Bengals are riding a three-game winning streak, and as such are 4-point favorites against the Miami Dolphins, who have lost their last two games in overtime.

The difference between the Cincinnati Bengals and Miami Dolphins is only a few points, but the Bengals have won three games while the Dolphins have lost three, leaving the hosting Bengals as 4-point favorites in this Sunday's matchup.

Thanks to a blowout loss in their season opener, Cincinnati has scored 112 points in four games, and they've also allowed 112 points in four games. But they're riding a three-game winning streak, with Andy Dalton seeming like a very reliable quarterback who has passed for 277.7 yards per game - over 100 of which go to stud receiver A.J. Green. On the other hand, Miami has only given up four more points than they've scored, but a pair of overtime losses on game-winning field goals at the hands of the New York Jets and Arizona Cardinals has them below .500, despite the emergence of Ryan Tannehill.

The Bengals opened as 4-point favorites, with some books bumping them up to 4.5-point favorites and others down to 3.5-points. The over/under opened at 43 points, a solid bet considering each team has hit the over in three of their four games.
