The Bengals fought valiantly in their Week 12 clash with the Giants, but it wasn’t enough as they ultimately fell 19-17, dropping to 2-8-1 on the season.
This was easily one of the most winnable games left on the schedule, even though the Bengals entered the week s 6.5-point underdogs.
They’ll be even bigger underdogs next Sunday in Miami, as the Dolphins have opened up as 11.5-point favorites, according to BetOnline.
After covering the spread vs. New York, the Bengals are now 7-3 against the spread over their last 10 games, so there is that.
Still, it’s hard to see the Bengals beating a legitimate playoff team like the Dolphins, who are 7-4 and have won six of their last seven games, including three straight at home.
Oh, and the Bengals have never won on the road under Zac Taylor, which is undoubtedly part of why the spread is so big this week.
