Dolphins vs. Bengals Spread

Since opening, the Dolphins vs. Bengals spread has moved from Cincinnati -1 to -2 at the majority of online sportsbooks by Wednesday evening.  BetUS.com was still holding at -1.5.

Miami last week ended up with a controversial one point loss at home to the Pittsburgh Steelers.

Steelers quarterback Ben Roethlisberger's late touchdown was instead ruled a fumble, but it was not known who recovered the ball.  As a result, Pittsburgh kept the ball and kicked the game-winning field goal on the next play to beat the Miami Dolphins 23-22.

"Just a bizarre kind of play. You hate to win it that way, but you'll take a win," Roethlisberger said.

The Dolphins come into this game with a 3-3 record while Cincinnati is at a disappointing 2-4 following a loss to Atlanta.

Trends to consider before betting on this game included the following (Gambling911.com has noted a very solid trend on the road underdog/home favorite):

The Dolphins are 5-0 Against The Spread in their last 5 road games.

The Dolphins are 5-0-2 ATS in their last 7 games as a road underdog of 0.5-3.0.  They are 13-3 Against The Spread in their last 16 games as a road underdog.  The Bengals are 6-20 ATS in their last 26 games as a favorite and 2-12 in the last three seasons.  They are 1-5 ATS in their last 6 games as a home favorite. (edge: Dolphins)

The Dolphins are 9-1 ATS in their last 10 games as an underdog.

Cincinnati is 1-4 ATS in their last 5 games following a S.U. loss.

The Bengals are 1-5 ATS in their last 6 vs. AFC.  Miami is 17-12 against conference opponents over the last three seasons.  (edge: Dolphins)

NFL Divisional Playoff: Baltimore Ravens @ Buffalo Bills Prediction

The Buffalo Bills held off the Indianapolis Colts, 27-24, as Josh Allen threw for 324 yards (with 128 of those yards going to Stefon Diggs). The Colts, despite coming in with the seventh seed, showed why they are a difficult team to stop. They rank in the top ten in the NFL on offense, defense and special teams, and the running of Jonathan Taylor kept Colt drives going, and it also took into the second half for the Bills to solve that Colt defense.
