Online NFL Betting Odds for Saints-Dolphins MatchPosted by: Anthony Yaylor
The NFL is committed to growing its fan base and this weekend’s Wembley Stadium matchup is another example of how the league is bridging borders. This past weekend, online NFL betting fans witnessed the Baltimore Ravens and Jacksonville Jaguars duke it out in front of a crowd consisting of mostly Britons. The Jaguars put on a 44-7 pounding on Baltimore – a finish nobody was expecting. This upcoming Sunday, the New Orleans Saints and Miami Dolphins will be looking to put on a more competitive display. Let’s see what kind of finish football betting sportsbooks are predicting in Week 4.
New Orleans Saints vs. Miami Dolphins – Sunday, October 1st
When: 9:30 am ET
Where: Wembley Stadium, Wembley
Stream: Fox Sports Go, NFL Game Pass
Online NFL Betting Odds:
New Orleans Saints -3 (-105) 49 ½ (-110)
Miami Dolphins +3 (-115) 49 ½ (-110)
New Orleans Saints
The Saints march into this overseas contest flashing a 1-2 record that ranks them dead last in the NFC South. Despite the poor ranking, New Orleans has to be in high spirits this week considering the shocking performance they delivered this past Sunday. Facing the Carolina Panthers, the team whose secondary ranked No. 1 against the pass through the first couple of weeks of the season, the Saints – or should I say Drew Brees, finished the day with 213 passing yards, 3 touchdowns, and a near-perfect 131.4 passer rating. Considering that the Saints had struggled to post 30 points in each of their previous two games, this was the big win that New Orleans needed.
Headed into Week 4, Saints’ fans have begun to entertain the idea of their team competing for a division title. As aforementioned, the Saints are currently last in the division but that’s only because the Bucs had their Week 1 matchup postponed. Had Tampa Bay played in Week 1, the Saints might be fairing a little better.
Nevertheless, if New Orleans wants to convince players who bet NFL that they have a chance in the division, they’ll need to address their passing game. Seeing New Orleans’ offense have a dominant day is nothing new, but neither is seeing their secondary get carved up for over 400 if not 500 yards. The Saints currently rank 30th in the league against the pass and they’ll need that to change if they are to make the postseason.
Like the Bucs, the Dolphins also postponed their Week 1 matchup. So it should come as no surprise to see Miami enter this weekend’s contest sporting a 1-1 record. Miami currently ranks 3rd in the AFC East and judging by what we’re seeing out of Tom Brady this season, no online NFL betting player can honestly expect any other team than the Patriots to win the East this year.
The Dolphins have plenty to prove after suffering a 20-6 loss to the New York Jets this past weekend. Miami has had the misfortune of having to contend with Jay Cutler as their starting quarterback, a questionable move that hasn’t really paid off. Cutler has thrown for 2 touchdowns, 1 interception, 450 yards and an 83.8 passer rating.
