NFL bet action has seen the Miami Dolphins get back into the playoff picture in the AFC.
They will try and continue their rise up the standings as they travel to Buffalo to play the Bills. Those that bet on football will notice that the Dolphins are slight road favorites.
NFL bet odds have Miami as a three-point favorite with a total of 39.5. Last week in NFL bet action it was the Dolphins winning 24-17 over Carolina as Ricky Williams ran for 119 yards and three touchdowns. The Dolphins started this NFL bet season at 0-3 but they have turned things around and even won last week for those that bet on football without running back Ronnie Brown who is out for the year.
The Dolphins could have some NFL bet success against a Buffalo team that continues to find ways to lose games. They lost last week to Jacksonville 18-15 as they gave up a late touchdown. The Bills got a big game from Terrell Owens as he caught nine passes for 197 yards and a TD but it did not matter. The Bills have lost three straight overall and six of their last eight. At least in the loss to Jacksonville they were competitive and covered the NFL bet number. "All for nothing when you don’t get the win," Owens said. "I’m glad for the opportunity to make big plays, what I’ve always wanted to do. We came up short." Quarterback Ryan Fitzpatrick threw for 297 yards in the NFL bet loss.
Earlier this NFL bet year it was the Dolphins routing the Bills 38-10. The Dolphins have won and covered the bet on football number the last three times they have faced the Bills. At Buffalo though, they have lost three of the last four against the NFL bet lines. Five of the last seven meetings between Miami and Buffalo have gone under the NFL bet total.
You might think of Miami as a defensive team but that would not be an accurate assessment. The Dolphins are actually 11th in the league in total points scored. Defensively they are 27th in points allowed as bet on football stats indicate. The Bills on the other hand are 28th in points scored and not much better on defense as they are 20th in points allowed. That is one reason they are 3-7 this NFL bet season.
