Injury Update

The Cincinnati Bengals have a long history of struggling against most teams in the league, but especially in the AFC.

Dolphins vs. Bengals Betting Preview

The Week 4 NFL schedule has one of the premiere NFL matchups. Dolphins and Bengals stats show Miami will be desperate to avoid a start like it had last season. Miami started 1-7 before mounting a furious comeback to finish above .500. 

Beating a team like Cincinnati will require having a more consistent offensive attack. The Dolphins struggled to run the ball last season, and they only averaged 20.1 points per game, which ranked 22nd in the league, according to NFL stats.

NFL betting tips also show that Miami had a middle-of-the-road defense last season. What the Dolphins did better than average were force turnovers. 

Miami took the ball away 27 times, which ranks seventh in the league. Dolphins at Bengals betting analysis also show Cincinnati has the desire to prove it can repeat last year’s success.

One area the Bengals must get better at is protecting the ball. Anyone looking at how to bet on football can see Cincinnati turned the ball over 26 times last season. 

Bengals quarterback Joe Burrow will likely have another excellent season but will have to worry about recovering from an appendectomy first. 

Cincinnati also made major improvements to their offensive line to try and keep Burrow off the ground. In the Super Bowl, Burrow didn’t have enough time to help the Bengals finish the game and grab the franchise’s first championship.

Rivalry History

The Miami Dolphins have traditionally had an easy time with the Bengals and lead the all-time series 18-7. While the teams don’t traditionally play that often due to being in different divisions, the Dolphins went from 1978 until 2004 without losing to Cincinnati, a stretch of nine games.

Miami won the only playoff meeting between the teams in 1973.

Matchup Trends

Dolphins at Bengals betting analysis shows Miami has won the past two meetings, the last of which game in 2020. Both of these NFL teams have struggled in the NFL standings in general over the last decade.
