NFL Week 4 picks, predictions:

The Arizona Republic: Bengals 31, Dolphins 27

Jeremy Cluff writes: "The Dolphins are the AFC's lone unbeaten team three weeks into the season. They won't be unbeaten after their Week 4 game against the Bengals."

Bill Speros writes: "Right now, the AFC goes through Miami. The Dolphins are the lone undefeated team in the Conference following their 21-19 down-to-the-last-second win over the Bills. The Dolphins defense has held the Patriots and Bills to just 3 TDs in two games. It's legit. Keep an eye on Tua Tagovailoa's status on a short week. Tyreek Hill and Jaylen Waddle are wrecking everything in their paths. The Bengals beat the Jets in Week 3. Beating the Jets ranks just a click above losing to a real team."

NFL Week 4 odds:

It writes: "Taking Miami outright on the moneyline is probably the better play from a payout standpoint. The Dolphins are undefeated and firing on all cylinders, but the road environment could be challenging here. The Bengals have started to figure things out offensively, so this could be a high-scoring game. Take the Dolphins against the number for now."

Will Tyreek Hill and the Miami Dolphins beat the Cincinnati Bengals in their NFL Week 4 game?

Fansided: Bengals 27, Dolphins 21

Leigh Oleszczak writes: "As mentioned above, the Dolphins have to travel and they're coming off a hard-fought emotional win against one of the best teams in the NFL. That bodes well for the Bengals because it means that the Dolphins are going to be gassed already coming into this one. This matchup will be close but the Bengals are fortunate to have home field advantage on the short week. That pays off nicely for them and they'll move to 2-2 after this one while handing the Dolphins their first loss of the young season."

Betsided: Bengals will cover vs. Dolphins on Thursday Night Football

Josh Yourish writes: "Mike McDaniel did a great job getting the ball out of Tua’s hands quickly to prevent the Bills pass rush from getting home and he can do that successfully with Tyreek Hill and Jaylen Waddle on the outside. I think that the Dolphins are for real, but this is a let down spot on a Thursday after a huge win, and you could even wait for this line to move because the public should be all over Miami as an underdog."

FanDuel: Bet the Bengals to cover against Dolphins

Adam Taylor McKillop writes: "This battle should come down to the wire, according to the opening betting lines. It doesn't seem that ESPN's FPI thinks it will be as close, but I'm siding with the betting markets. This is a pair of high-powered offenses, and it could come down to the final score. Playing at home, and finally recovered from the Super Bowl hangover, the Bengals take care of business. "

ESPN: Bengals have a 69.8% chance to win the game

The site's Football Power Index gives the Dolphins a 29.9% shot at picking up the victory.
