Dolphins-Titans Online NFL Betting Odds & Lines
Posted by: Charlie Smith
The Miami Dolphins have to regret bringing in Jay Cutler. Through three games this season, the Dolphins’ quarterback has posted an 80.4 passer rating, and has two touchdowns as well as two interceptions to his name. Miami was forced to bring in a quarterback when Ryan Tannehill, a man who finished the 2016 season with a 93.5 passer rating, needed a season-ending knee surgery in the preseason. The biggest online NFL betting kicker of the story is that the Dolphins could have easily brought in Colin Kaepernick, but elected instead to bring in Cutler. Considering that Miami has won one game this season, it’s clear that Cutler was the lesser option.
The Dolphins will get an opportunity this Sunday to prove to NFL sportsbooks that they are still a professional football team. Right now, ESPN is predicting that Miami will finish the 2017 season with a 3-13 record. This Sunday, they’ll have to contend with the Tennessee Titans. Let’s see what the bet NFL online odds have to say about it.

The Titans march into this Sunday’s contest sporting a 2-2 record that ties them with the Jacksonville Jaguars and Houston Texans for the lead in the NFC South. The Titans had an opportunity to cement themselves as the frontrunners in the division this past Sunday, when they faced the Houston Texans on the road. The Titans were actually the online NFL betting favorites heading into that matchup. However, an injury to starting quarterback Marcus Mariota spearheaded the Titans chances of actually winning that contest. The Texans ended up coming out on top 57-14, which proves that the Titans’ offensive production dips without Mariota in the lineup. Mariota might or not play this Sunday, but it’s looking like he’ll be sidelined as of now.
The Dolphins swim into this Week 5 matchup flashing a 1-2 record that pegs them as the worst team in the AFC East. The Dolphins are also riding a 2-game losing streak, with their lone win of the season coming against the Los Angeles Chargers in Week 2. The odds haven’t been released for this contest yet and it would be safe to assume that the Dolphins will be pegged as the underdog. However, considering that the Titans will have to compete without Mariota, it’s not certain how lopsided of odds they’ll face this Sunday.
Miami comes into this weekend’s contest with the worst scoring offense in the NFL. The Fins are putting up an average of 8.3 points per outing, and also have the worst total offense in the NFL. The Titans aren’t the greatest offense, but they shouldn’t have much of a problem scoring 9 points this Sunday. For comparison, the Titans have the league’s 9th best scoring offense and are putting up an average of 25.0 points each week.
