New England Patriots
The New England Patriots enter this Monday night pairing with a 10-2 record that ranks them 1st in the AFC East. Those who follow international news recently witnessed President Trump declare Jerusalem the eternal capital of Israel. It was a controversial announcement, but stating that the Patriots are the perennial champions of the division is far from. The biggest threat that the Patriots are facing in the AFC East at the moment are the 6-6 Buffalo Bills. Since the Pats are coming off a 23-3 triumph over the Bills, it’s safe to say that New England isn’t breaking a sweat. Furthermore, looking over both teams’ numbers, it’s clear that the Patriots have nothing to worry about this Sunday.
The Patriots are much better on both sides of the ball and there’s no question that that has influenced the NFL parlay odds for this New England Patriots vs. Miami Dolphins matchup. New England ranks 3rd in points per game, ranks No. 1 overall in total offense, No. 1 overall through the air, and No. 9 on the ground. It’s hard to try to beat those numbers and it’s safe to say that Miami isn’t even close. The Dolphins rank 26th in scoring, 29th in total offense, 20th in passing, and 29th on the ground.
The Fins swim into this rivalry with a 5-7 record that ranks the franchise last in the AFC East. Miami doesn’t have much hope for making the playoffs this season, despite the fact that they haven’t quite been eliminated at the moment. And while the Dolphins are coming off a 35-9 bombshell upset over the Denver Broncos, there’s no reason to expect this team to make a playoff push. Miami is 1-5 in their last 6 games and by the looks of it NFL bookmakers are predicting another blowout for the Dolphins.
Considering how steep the money line is in the Patriots’ favor, online NFL betting players can cash in on a more lucrative payout by betting on the spread. New England is 8-4 against the spread on the season while Miami is 4-6-2 themselves. Furthermore, the Fins are 2-2-2 against the spread on home turf while the Pats are 5-1 against the spread during away games.
