The Miami Dolphins head to Cincinnati to face the Bengals in Week 5, and the Dolphins have opened as four point underdogs. The Dolphins are 1-3 and the Bengals are 3-1, but the Dolphins are playing the kind of football where one or two things breaking their way would be enough to give them the win. Miami is coming off two straight overtime losses, the first when an ill-timed time-out cost them against the New York Jets, and another against the Arizona Cardinals where late turnovers sunk any chance of a win.
The total for the matchup opened at 43 points. Miami's offense is averaging 21.5 points per game, with Cincinnati averaging 28. On defense, Cincinnati is allowing an average of only 28 points per game, among the worst in the league. Miami ranks in the middle of the pack with an average of 22.5 points per game.
