Miami Dolphins quarterback Tua Tagovailoa pumps up the crowd after win vs. Buffalo Bills

The Miami Dolphins will travel to Cincinnati to take on the Bengals at Paycor Stadium at 8:15 p.m for Thursday Night Football.

The Bengals are 1-2 after their Week 3 win against the New York Jets, and the Dolphins are a perfect 3-0 with their wins against the New England Patriots, Baltimore Ravens, and Buffalo Bills.

Joe Burrow and the Cincinnati Bengals looked like a new team in Week 3, as they finally looked like they were in control for the entire game.

Their first two games of the season against the Pittsburgh Steelers and Dallas Cowboys showed a lot of weaknesses in the Bengals’ team. Burrow threw for 275 yards and three touchdowns against the Jets.

The Dolphins pulled off a huge upset win against the Buffalo Bills at home to prove their legitimacy. Josh Allen and the Bills were very pass-prone in throwing the ball 63 times in the game but were only able to score two touchdowns.

Dolphins quarterback Tua Tagovailoa came out of the game with a concussion but eventually returned to lead the Dolphins to a win with a fourth-quarter touchdown.

Let’s look at the best prop bets for this Thursday night matchup between the Cincinnati Bengals and Miami Dolphins.

Best Prop Bets

Cincinnati To Win By 1-13 points (+146)

I like the Bengals to win this game, but I don’t see this game being a blowout by any means. The Dolphins have beaten some very talented teams, and I would be extremely surprised if their level of play decreases on Thursday night. This game being played in Cincinnati is a huge factor which will lead Cincinnati to victory. The Bengals also need this game to stay in the playoff race.

Cincinnati To Have Over 1.5 Field Goals (-145)

The Bengals are very conservative when it comes to fourth downs in field goal range. They often rely on kicker Evan McPherson to ensure that Cincinnati can come away with points on any drive that sets them up for a field goal.

Cincinnati has a field goal conversion rate of 78 percent, which ranks 21st in the NFL, but that includes the game against the Pittsburgh Steelers, in which the Bengals were missing their long snapper.

McPherson has hit at least two field goals in all three games this season, and he has had three field goal attempts in all those games as well.

Miami To Have Over 2.5 Touchdowns (+102)

The Dolphins are the third-ranked team in the NFL in touchdowns per game with 3.7. They also rank fourth in third down conversions as they are able to extend drives well and fourth in red zone touchdowns at 78 percent.  

They have eclipsed this 2.5 touchdown target in two out of their three games which includes Tagovailoa's six touchdown-barrage of the Baltimore Ravens. I think this game will turn into a shootout which will lead to more touchdowns for both teams.
