The Bengals can win because…
They are rolling right now. Remember when people were questioning quarterback Andy Dalton’s production after he started the season with just five touchdowns and five interceptions in the first four games? Those who had faith in him and kept the Bengals in their weekly sports picks have been rewarded as Dalton has thrown for 11 touchdowns and just one interception in the last three games. He’s led the team to wins over the New England Patriots, Buffalo Bills, Detroit Lions and New York Jets.

The Dolphins are playing with no confidence right now. All of the enthusiasm of their 3-0 start has dissipated and young quarterback Ryan Tannehill has been an absolute gong show. He has 10 turnovers (seven interceptions and three fumbles) in his last four games and that’s because the offensive line can’t protect him. He’s been sacked 18 times in the last four games. That figures to play well into the hands of the Bengals, who are seventh in the AFC in takeaways and 12th in the NFL in sacks.

The Bengals are on the road. Those who make their NFL picks should be wary laying points with the Bengals. As you might recall, they lost in Chicago, they lost in Cleveland, they needed overtime to outlast the Thad Lewis-led Buffalo Bills and escaped Detroit with a 27-24 win. In other words, this team hasn’t won by more than three on the road this season, so why would you lay that much with them?
