If it was the wheel bearing then it would probably make more noise on left/right bends. Jack up car, turn wheels and listen/feel for roughness.

CV joint would probably show up more on slow sharp turns and is more likely to be a clicking noise.

Thrusr bearing or pilot bearing would be heard at rest and would be much more difficult to hear while moving.

Have you considered the possibility that it might be the fuel pump?
