Dolphins NFL Preseason Betting Now with 100% More MoorePosted by: Charlie Smith
The Miami Dolphins will host the Atlanta Falcons in an NFL preseason betting matchup in the wake of the news that starting quarterback Ryan Tannehill will reportedly miss next season – though backup Matt Moore is more than ready to fill the void.
Falcons PK (-110) 36½ (-110) –
Dolphins PK (-110) 36½ (-110) –
Tannehill wants second opinion. Ok, you’re ugly too
[Tannehill]’s done, I think,” an anonymous source cited by ESPN said referring to the fact that the QB aggravated a nagging ACL injury on a noncontact play during Thursday’s practice. Both Tannehill and the Dolphins will look for a second and even third opinion, and the signal-caller theoretically has a choice between resting for six to eight weeks and attempt a comeback, or undergoing season-ending surgery. However, the decision could very well be made for him. Like a kid in a dentist’s office waiting room, Tannehill seems to be dreading a surgical procedure ever since he originally injured his knee in December. Former offensive lineman Damien Woody sees a silver lining, though.
And Moore couldn’t agree more. “I’ve done this before in stepping up and getting ready if need be,” he said. “So that’s as much as I know and kind of the attitude I have moving forward. It stinks [Tannehill’s injury], but I thought today was a good practice.” Also following this story closely? Colin Kaepernick. Hey, you never know. As a matter of fact, Jay Cutler has reportedly interest in becoming the starting QB and renew his working relationship with head coach Adam Gase (the latter was offensive coordinator during the former’s resurgence with the Chicago Bears). But that wouldn’t be fair; Cutler has a cushy job on Fox waiting for him. Kap needs it more.
Set coordinates for the Super Bowl?
The first NFL preseason betting game for the Falcons will feature Atlanta’s new offensive and defensive coordinators making their debut with the team in a competitive setting. Former OC left for the yellower pastures of San Francisco to become the Niners new head coach and was replaced with Steve Sarkisian, while former DC Richard Smith was simply given his walking papers by head coach Dan Quinn who then promoted Marquand Manuel to the position. Falcons fans who bet on the NFL preseason hope that these changes will be for the best – and if that’s the case, will it make Atlanta unstoppable?
There is no denying that the Falcons are fast and furious, but common wisdom says that changing one coordinator, let alone two, is bound to cause a few glitches. Atlanta may not come charging out of the gate but then again that’s what the preseason is for, and we will surely see a closer NFL preseason betting contest on Thursday than when the Dolphins visit the new Mercedes-Benz Stadium in week 6 and the Falcons are either a well oiled machine or reeling from the dreaded Super Bowl hangover.
