Must-play props for Bengals vs. Dolphins
Week 4 matches up two teams who, at their best, are two of the top offenses in the NFL! Joe Burrow and his Bengals may have started the season off slow, but after a dominant win over the New York Jets, things may be able to click going forward.
Miami meanwhile is coming off of another victory to keep the team undefeated. The Dolphins are one of only two teams in the league without a loss, the other of course being the Philadelphia Eagles. In year three, quarterback Tua Tagovailoa has shown why he was a top five pick.
Miami’s success is not solely thanks to Tua however as the development of receiver Jaylen Waddle and the arrival of star wideout Tyreek Hill have been the catalyst for the development of Tagovailoa and the now-explosive offense.
Tonight’s game will certainly be a must watch, these must-play props however can add even more to that excitement:
Tyreek Hill | Over Total Receiving Yards
Tyreek Hill has enjoyed a phenomenal season so far. He may have only had 33 yards against Buffalo last week but he’s totaled 317 over the first three games combined. Cincinnati’s defense is fine, average really, they are certainly not as talented as the Buffalo Bills’ dominant defensive unit.
On top of that, Bengals’ corner Eli Apple has inspired Tyreek Hill to reach yet another level — or at least Hill has stated his motivations after Apple and the Bengals toppled Hill and his former team, the Kansas City Chiefs, twice in a month.
Take the over for Cheetah’s receiving yards tonight.
Joe Burrow | Over Total Passing Yards
Is Joe Brrr back? Maybe one game against the Jets is too soon to suggest such a thing. Okay, it’s definitely too soon to suggest it, but it at least looks as though Burrow is trending back in the right direction.
After throwing for 275 and three touchdowns against New York, Burrow may have finally found his touch, in large part thanks to discovering the other two receivers on his team. Not to say that the Burrow/Chase connection is dead, they still connected six times (on ten targets) in Week 3.
However, if Burrow continues to trust Tee Higgins and Tyler Boyd, the Bengals offense will be much better off for it.
For tonight’s game, take the over on Joe Burrow passing yards.
Tyreek Hill | Anytime Touchdown
What’s that? Two Tyreek Hill props? Absolutely, after all, he will be the focal point of the Dolphins’ entire offense. Not only that, but he’ll be extremely motivated lining up against Eli Apple. Unless Tua is truly in rough shape after the injury he sustained last week, expect him to find Hill early and often tonight, including at least once for a touchdown.
