NFL picks and predictions Week 5: Dolphins vs. Bengals

Rob Foldy-US PRESSWIRE - Presswire

The CIncinnati Bengals are overwhelming favorites in expert circles to defeat the Miami Dolphins on Sunday.

The Cincinnati Bengals will host the Miami Dolphins on Sunday, and NFL experts around the country aren't too keen on Miami's chances. Of 19 experts, user communities and computer prediction systems at ESPN, Yahoo and CBS, only one is picking the Dolphins to win straight up.

CBS expert Jason La Canfora is the one standing on an island alone. At CBS, that group grows a bit when picking against the spread, where four of CBS' eight experts like the Dolphins to cover the three-point spread. Regardless, though, a Dolphins victory would be a surprise around the league.

Miami enters the game 1-3, but may be better than their record appears. In each of their last two games, the Dolphins have held a lead late in the fourth quarter only to lose by a field goal in overtime. Miami is 2-2 against the spread this season.
