NFL Betting Online Odds:
The Dolphins swim into this Sunday’s contest sporting a 7-6 record that ranks them 2nd in the AFC East. With the 9-4 New England Patriots leading the division, there’s still a sliver of hope for Miami to win the division. Granted, they’ll need New England to pretty much lose the remaining 3 games of the season which seems extremely farfetched. On top of that, Miami will need to win the remaining 3 games on the schedule. Considering the odd they’re facing this Sunday, it’s looking like the odds makers think this will be way too difficult for the club. Looking over the numbers, it’s surprising to see that Miami does in fact have a shot at upsetting Minnesota. This is because Miami is scoring 21.4 per game to the 21.7 that Minnesota is averaging. Defensively the Vikings certainly have an edge over Miami since they give up 22.4 while the Fins allot 25.6.
Players to Watch: Ryan Tannehill (1,578 passing yards, 16 TD, 6 INT), Frank Gore (708 rushing yards, 0 TD, 1 F), and Kenny Stills (504 receiving yards, 6 TD, 32 REC).
The Vikings charge into this Week 15 match flashing a 6-6-1 record that ranks them 2nd overall in the NFC. With the 9-4 Chicago Bears leading the division, the Vikes will be better off focusing on a Wild Card berth. Right now Minnesota ranks 6th overall in the NFC and will be vying to retain or improve on that ranking in the coming weeks. Since the 6-7 Panthers rank 7th in the NFC, Minnesota must avoid any setbacks in order to solidify their spot in the 2018 NFL betting online playoffs.
Players to Watch: Kirk Cousins (3,698 passing yards, 24 TD, 9 INT), Latavius Murray (470 rushing yards, 5 TD, 0 F), and Adam Thielen (1,236 receiving yards, 9 TD, 103 REC).
