Don’t know what to bet on in this competitive matchup between two AFC contenders? I got you covered. Here are my favorite bets for Dolphins vs Bengals.
Tyreek Hill Anytime Touchdown Scorer (+135)
I am going to start you off with some value. The Bengals have not faced a weapon like Tyreek Hill all season. Hill also has had some back and forth with Bengals Cornerback Eli Apple, recently saying “I owe you, boy.” Dolphins Quarterback Tua Tagovailoa also said this regarding Apple and Hill “If Tyreek is covered 1-on-1 I am giving him the ball.” This is in reference to Apple tweeting at Hill after the Bengals defeated the Chiefs in the AFC championship game. Although the Bengals’ defense has been stingy, look for Hill to want to pay back Apple by hitting the endzone.
Ja’Marr Chase OVER 5.5 Receptions (-150)
Although the -150 is a bit juicy I do like his receptions at 6 and even 6.5. The All-Pro cornerback for the Dolphins Xavien Howard has not played up to par this season. Rashod Bateman went for 108 yards and two touchdowns and Diggs had 7 catches for 74 yards. Howard will be shadowing Chase for most of this game but that does not scare me too much. Burrow knows in order for them to win this game Chase has to be heavily involved. Look for Chase to even get 2-3 screen catches so I think he hits this mark rather easily.
Miami Dolphins +4 against the Bengals
I recently posted an article previewing this game. In that article, I predicted a Bengals 24-21 win. This will be a tight game throughout, I do not see a team leading by more than seven points at any point in this game. I like how battle-tested the Dolphins are this season in only three games. I think the Dolphins’ defensive line gives the Bengals offensive line issues. Even though the Dolphins’ offense could be hampered by Tua’s injury, look for the Dolphins’ defense to keep them in this game.
