Today’s Bengals vs. Dolphins matchup is certainly looking like an ugly one. The two teams have combined for four wins so far this season, making this one of the least appetizing games on the Week 16 slate.
The weather forecast for Hard Rock Stadium in Miami is just as ugly, calling for wet, windy conditions.
Betting on the total is relatively split — 52% of tickets are on the under — but expect that number to drop as more bettors become aware of the forecast.

Bengals vs. Dolphins Weather Forecast
Sports Insights’ weather data is projecting average winds of 14 mph Sunday in Miami. The National Weather Service is forecasting more severe conditions, with wind gusts up to 25 mph.
Breezy weather isn’t optimal for efficient passing offense, resulting in NFL games played in double-digit winds falling under the closing total 56.2% of the time since 2003.
The over/under for this matchup opened at 46 and has ticked down a touch to 45.
Frankly, with the holidays on the horizon, bowl season starting and more prominent Sunday NFL matchups, it is likely that bettors simply haven’t had the time to take in the Bengals vs. Dolphins weather forecast just yet.
