Slumping Packers Still Football Betting Favorite vs. Miami

A clear difference can be seen in Green Bay between this year and seasons of the past.  Despite the return of quarterback Aaron Rodgers this season the Pack is under water and fading fast.  Fashion the fact that Green Bay is in the red on the Pro Football betting board.  Further, they have picked up wins in just two of their last five games.  Following a hot start to the season Miami has also cooled off badly.  In fact, the Dolphins have lost four of their last six games.  Extending Miami’s problems are among the worst metrics in the NFL.

Miami Dolphins

Miami has a Football betting record of 5-4 both straight up and against the spread.  Last week the Dolphins scored a 13-6 home payout over the New York Jets.  Most important of all Miami is two games behind New England in the AFC East.  Concurrently the Dolphins have the look of a pretender instead of contender.  Consider their NFL rankings of 28th for total offense and 26th for defense.  Brock Osweiler continues to start at quarterback for the injured Ryan Tannehill.  And Osweiler has a 91.1 rating with six touchdowns and three interceptions.

Green Bay Packers

Meanwhile Green Bay is 3-4-1 straight up and 2-5 vs, the odds with five overs.  Last Sunday night on prime-time NBC the Packers lost at New England 31-17.  Overall Green Bay ranks sixth overall for offense but 21st for points allowed.  Rodgers has been sharp with a rating of 98.9 with 15 touchdowns and one interception.  Consequently, the Packers are lacking a deep receiving threat that can break games.  In addition, the front office and coaching shakeups of the off season are yet to pay off.

Stats to Consider

Miami has been a horrible sports betting value as a dog on the road.  For example, the Dolphins have failed to cover eight of their last nine games getting points away from home.  Four of their last five in that situation have gone under the total.   Despite their woes of the past two years Green Bay remains a reliable home chalk.  The Pack has paid in seven of their last 10 games laying points at Lambeau Field.  Seven of their last nine in that situation have gone over the total.

Team vs. Team

Green Bay has had the upper hand in this head to head series with Miami.  Fashion the Packers covering three of their last four games with the Fish.  Seven of the last ten between these teams have gone under the total.  Further, at Lambeau Field the Packers have come away with the cash in four of their last five vs. Miami.  The last four matchups in this series at Green Bay have gone under the total.

Matchup to Watch

For this purpose Green Bay rates the Football betting edge based on Lambeau Field and Rodgers.  As mentioned earlier the Pack is a strong home favorite.  Compared to Green Bay Miami is a weak away dog with poor defense.
