The Patriots are coming off their bye week while the Dolphins got a huge win at New York for those that bet on football.
NFL bet odds have New England as a 10.5 point favorite with a total of 47. The Patriots have been rolling of late and are a popular NFL bet. New England is 5-2 on the season while the Dolphins are 3-4. Many that make a bet on football will be looking to take the Patriots since their offense looks unstoppable again. The Patriots have been very impressive in recent weeks with Tom Brady spreading the ball around to his receivers. Miami’s defense could be in for a long day on Sunday. The key for the Dolphins will be to keep control of the ball and keep the New England defense off the field.
Those that make an NFL bet at least have to look at Miami in this game. The Dolphins have won their last five versus the NFL bet odds against teams from the AFC East. That includes last week’s win at the Jets. The Dolphins have also been a good NFL bet underdog on the road. The Dolphins are 6-2 ATS in their last 8 games as a road underdog. Also keep in mind that the road team in this NFL bet matchup is 4-0 ATS in their last 4 meetings.
New England also has excellent NFL bet trends. The Patriots are 4-1 ATS in their last 5 games as a home favorite. They are 5-2 ATS in their last 7 games following a bye week. The Patriots are also very good within the division for those making an NFL bet. The Patriots are 25-12-1 ATS in their last 38 vs. the AFC East. One thing to keep in mind though with New England as you bet on football is that the Patriots are a poor favorite when laying big points. The Patriots are 1-9 ATS in their last 10 games as a favorite of 10.5 or more.
As you look to bet on football totals you should remember that the last four Miami games have all gone over. Six of their last eight road games though have gone under the NFL bet total and of the last seven New England home games, six have gone over the NFL bet pointspread.
