Dolphins vs Bengals Prop Bet Picks

 

Total Sacks Over/Under 5 Sacks (-105)

Both teams have been hurt by some bad offensive line play. The Bengals are ranked 32nd in the NFL and giving up an average of 4 sacks a game on their own. While the Dolphins defensive line isn’t as good as the Broncos. It is good enough to get to Dalton several times in this game and is currently ranked 7th in the NFL with 3 sacks a game.

Pick: Total Sacks over 5

 

Dolphins vs Bengals Over/Under 3.5 Filed Goals

Again, lets look at the numbers. Cincinnati is ranked 5th in the NFL in field goal attempts with 2.7 per game. The Dolphins rank 29th with only 1.3 per game. On defense, the Bengals are in the middle giving up an average of 2 per game. The Dolphins however, are near the bottom and ranked 31st in field goal attempts allowed per game with 3.3 attempts. Both teams are not very good in the red zone and this looks like a game where either team could end up with 3 field goals on its own.

Pick: Total Field Goals over 3.5

 

First Score of the game Field Goal or Safety +125

If you looked at the pick on field goals then you have an idea where I am going to put my money down on this one. Both teams have had red zone problems and there is no reason for that to change now. In a game I like to have more field goals than touchdowns I will take positive odds on a field goal or safety.

Pick: First Score is a Field Goal or Safety
