NFL Games of the Year: Miami could be FG fave hosting Cincy

Odds are out for the biggest and best games of the upcoming NFL season. Covers Expert Ben Burns gives you his insight into some of these marquee matchups and predicts where the odds could move before kickoff.

NFL Week 9: Cincinnati Bengals at Miami Dolphins (-2) - Thursday Night Football

Past History: Miami 8-2 SU, 8-2 ATS, 4/6 O/U since 1987
Recent History: Miami 2-0 SU, 2-0 ATS, 0/2 O/U since 2010

Early look at the Dolphins: Miami signed several big-name free agents and is expecting improvement. The Dolphins, who are being projected to win eight games, are off a big divisional game at New England and have a Monday Night game (at Tampa Bay) on deck.

Early look at the Bengals: The Bengals, who are projected to win 8.5 games, are off a game vs. the Jets and have a big divisional game vs. Baltimore on deck. After back-to-back trips to the postseason, this young team is hoping to take the next step.

Where this line will move: Injuries and performance, through the first half of the season, will naturally play key roles in determining which way this line goes. If the teams were of roughly equal health and had equal records coming in, I could see the line climbing to -3.

YOU GOT 2 BE KIDDING WEEK 9 NO IDEA WHO'S HEALTHY. TRY GETTING A STRONG PLAY WEEK 1 OR 2. MAYBE TAKE A STAND ON SEASON TOTAL WINS. IF THEY THINK DOLPHINS HAVE A MUCH STRONGER TEAM BET THEM OVER 8 WINS DON'T TRY + GUESS THE THE LINE AN THEN GUESS THE WINNER. I LOVE THE LIONS OVER 8 WINS!!!

I wonder how playing in the 4pm game might affect Cincy on this Thursday bout vs. Miami. I like the upside of Tannehill vs. the noodle arm of Dalton. The best player on the field is probably AJ Green. Kind of agree with sailorman, close one coming down to the final possession.
