THURSDAY NIGHT LIGHTS

Dolphins (+3.5) @ Bengals; Total 48

KICKOFF: 8:15 p.m. ET

KEY STATS: The game features a juicy clash between the defending AFC champs and the conference’s only 3-0 team. The Bengals are 1-2 after forcing four J-E-T-S turnovers Sunday. Not since 2018 has a team 3-0 or better been such a large underdog to a team with a losing record. That year, the favored Patriots (-6.5) crushed the 3-0 Dolphins.

TRENDING: Miami has covered four straight but even more impressive, the Bengals have covered seven straight 👍🏽 against teams with a winning record. One more: The home team is 5-0 ATS since 2013.

BOOST: Jaylen Waddle 100+ receiving yards in a Dolphins win +850 –> +1000

EXPERT PICKS

PointsBet studio host Ryan Leaf, PointsBet senior editor Teddy Greenstein and NBC lead betting analyst Jay Croucher square off for Thursday Night Football and a college selection.

THE BIG NAME

Dolphins-Bengals Under 48.5 (-107)
“It’s a short week, Tua will be limited by last week’s injury and the Bengals are averaging less than 22 points. I also like Miami plus the 3.5.”
Washington (-3) over UCLA
“I love Michael Penix Jr. He gets it out so quick but still down the field. The Huskies have a top-5 passing game and won’t get beat by a UCLA team that has not faced competition.”

THE BETTOR

Most Receiving Yards: Ja’Marr Chase + Tee Higgins (-105)
“Miami’s defense should be gassed after facing the Bills for 90 plays four days ago. With Tua a little wobbly, Tyreek Hill and Jaylen Waddle (-125) will be contained.”
Minnesota -12 over Purdue (-107)
“The Boilermakers will not derail the class of the Big Ten West. The Gophers have been dominant on both sides, and Purdue QB Aidan O’Connell is iffy with an undisclosed injury.”

THE BOOK

Bengals -3.5 over Miami (-107)
"The Dolphins are famous for their blitzing defense, and Joe Burrow was the league's best QB against the blitz in 2021. Plus home field advantage is magnified in a short week."
Oklahoma State +2 over Baylor (-107)
"The Cowboys are rock solid across the board. They should perform well enough to cover against an extremely suspect Baylor offense."

CFB GAME OF THE WEEK

Alabama (-17.5) @ Arkansas; Total 61

KICKOFF: 3:30 p.m. ET

KEY STATS: Nick Saban is 15-0 against Arkansas since joining Alabama in 2007, and the Tide have scored 40+ points six straight times. Saban called Arkansas “dangerous,” and he ain’t lying: The Razorbacks have a top-10 rushing offense, and QB KJ Jefferson is dual-threat personified.

TRENDING: Alabama is 1-4 ATS in its last five road games, including its escape hatch 🏃🏽 performance at Texas. The Under has hit in five of ‘Bama’s last six.

INSIGHT: The public (53% of bets) are on the Tide; the sharps (67% of handle) back the Hogs.

HOW LOW CAN YOU GO

UNDER-ACHIEVERS

A quick look at the six teams who have hit the Under in every game:

  • Texas A&M: Switched QBs after Week 2 loss to Appalachian State ⛰️, but Max Johnson is also firing blanks.
  • Virginia: After putting up big numbers 🥳 in 2021, QB Brennan Armstrong has regressed (52.1%, more INTs [4] than TDs [3]).
  • Georgia Tech: Yellow Jackets got their coach fired 😲 by scoring just 20 points – combined – in three games against FBS competition.
  • Utah State: UNLV picked off QB Logan Bonner five times 🎁 last week.
  • Virginia Tech: Offense ranks No. 115 ⬇️ in yards per play (4.2) vs. FBS opponents. This week’s Total vs. UNC is a mere 53 despite Tar Heels’ hideous defense.
  • Arizona State: Sun Devils’ only TD against Utah last week came against second-stringers 🤷.
  • Colorado State: Rams have scored 43 points all season. And made one FG 🤦.
LONDON CALLING

FIT FOR A KING

A reminder from your friends at PointsBet: NFL Sunday begins at 9:30 a.m. ET when the Vikings (-2.5) take on the Saints in London. Adjust ⏰ accordingly.
