Bengals vs. Dolphins 2013 odds: Cincinnati favored in Miami

Mark Zerof-USA TODAY Sports

The Dolphins are underdogs at home against the Bengals.

The Dolphins will host the Bengals on Thursday night. Miami is 3-4 after a loss to the Patriots, while the Bengals have surged to 6-2. With the obvious differential in success, the Bengals are the 2.5-point road favorites in Miami, according to OddsShark. The over/under for the prime-time contest is 42.5 points.

Miami started the season at 3-0, but is currently on a four-game skid. The Dolphins have failed to protect Ryan Tannehill from opposing defenses as of late and the team has suffered for it. While their defense have been able to create turnovers and keep them in games, the offense has struggled produce points in recent weeks. If they can get their running game back on track, the Dolphins will have shot at the upset.

The Bengals are riding high after a dominating win over the Jets. Wide receiver Marvin Jones connected with Andy Dalton for 122 yards and four touchdowns. With another passing threat established across from A.J. Green, Dalton and the Bengals offense could be tough to slow down. The Bengals defense has been equally-successful as of late, so Cincinnati could be rough task for Miami.
