The Dolphins are for real. Tua magic coupled a very impressive combination of receivers has this young team riding an extreme high. Sitting at 3-0, the most impressive part of their most recent win was that Tua only threw for 186 yards compared to 400 for Josh Allen. Still, the Bills were knocking on the door with a chance to win but fell just short. Jaylen Waddle and Tyreek Hill both regressed a bit from their monster week two in which they combined for 22 catches and 362 yards.

The Cheetah only had two receptions for 33 yards, and his receiver on the other side had just four grabs and 102 yards. Much of the 102 yards came on one catch that went for 45 yards. The Dolphins were in a weird spot heading into week two, because by any normal measure they were in a letdown spot. The Bills by all accounts were in line for a letdown as well after their dominant Monday night performance.

The Dolphins will be traveling to Cincinnati to face a Bengals team still desperate to string together a few wins in a row. The Bengals were 0-2, but a matchup against the New York Jets helped alleviate the zero from their win column. Joe Burrow threw for 275 yards on 23-36 passing. Ja’Marr Chase had just 29 yards, but Tee Higgins and Tyler Boyd were able to pick up the slack with 198 combined yards on nine total catches.

The Miami Dolphins will face the Cincinnati Bengals on Thursday night, one of just two primetime games slotted for the Fins this season. The Bengals have four games scheduled for primetime, including two straight weeks beginning in week three.

BetMGM Sportsbook is offering all new players a risk free bet up to $1,000. To redeem the $1,000 risk free bet, you must sign up using the VIBONUS code. If you first wager is graded as lost, BetMGM Sportsbook will deposit the original wager back into your account by way of free bets.

BetMGM Sportsbook has the home team Cincinnati Bengals listed as a field goal favorite. The Bengals opened up at -1, but after some early action on the Bengals, it got bet up by two points. Both the Bengals and Dolphins are priced at -110 on the spread. For the confident Dolphins backer, a look at the money line may be worth a look. The Dolphins come in at +130 on the money line. A $100 wager would net a profit of $130.

The Dolphins have covered in all three of their games this season and the Bengals are just 1-2 against the spread. Dating back to last season, including the playoffs and Super Bowl, the Bengals are 9-2 in their last 11 against the spread. The home team has covered in five straight meetings between the franchises, but the Dolphins have covered five of their last seven meetings.

BetMGM Sportsbook has the total listed at 47.5, a full point drop from the opening line. The offense for the Dolphins has been clicking, but both of these teams have been trending towards the under. The Bengals have seen the total go under in eight straight contests and the Dolphins have seen the under hit at a 9-4 clip in their last 13 contests. The Dolphins are also 5-1 to the under in their last six road games. The under between these two clubs is 5-1-1 in the last seven head-to-head meetings.

This AFC Divisional meeting has a lot of different angles, and BetMGM is a great place to take advantage of those. Remember when signing up, use the VIBONUS code and get your first bet risk free up to $1,000.

Until next time, enjoy the ride.
