Why the Miami Dolphins are a good bet -1?

The Miami Dolphins have been a tough out all season long. Yes, they’ve suffered blow out losses. But they never give up. They’ve played hard enough for a 7-7 record against the spread. On Sunday, they send the better quarterback in the matchup to the field. Ryan Fitzpatrick completes 61% of his passes. He can light up a bad secondary like when he torched Philadelphia for 365 yards and 3 TDs. If the Bengals try to stop FitzMagic, they must deal with an improving rushing attack.

Bengals vs Dolphins Final NFL Betting Analysis

Miami failed to impress in Week 15. There are reasons why the Dolphins looked so bad, though. The New York Giants have a decent defensive line. Not only that, but the Giants started Eli Manning. The 2-time Super Bowl winner carved up Miami’s secondary.

Andy Dalton won’t have as much success on Dec. 22. The Dolphins have an advantage at quarterback. The real reason to back Miami, though, is because the Bengals allow 158 rushing yards per game. Fins control this one from start to finish.
