Dolphins to Win the AFC East at 15-1 Odds

Dolphins So Far This Season

From NFL.com: "Dolphins fans have been all over THE TWITTER about the lack of respect. Understandable, if you look at their winning record -- but NOT understandable when you consider that Miami got blown out in an important game against the Patriots, imploded in Cincinnati, barely escaped the Bears at home (thanks to a Cody Parkey miss), then fell at home to a mediocre Lions team. All of that is why the Dolphins sit in this spot. They are not a bad football team, but how can anyone expect this to be considered a top-10 squad the way they've fared this month ... especially with Brock Osweiler at quarterback?"

Dolphins 2018-2019 Odds

An injury to Tom Brady and suddenly Miami is the team to beat in the AFC East.  They currently pay $1500 for every $100 bet so we would encourage you to lock these payout odds in now.

Dolphins vs. Texans Line Move, Public Betting Action

The line on this game has moved between -6.5 and -7.5 though most books have moved a mere half price between -7 and -7.5.

Dolphins vs. Texans Betting Trends

Miami beat the Texans 44-26 back in 2015. 

AthlonSports offered up their prediction:

“The Dolphins are a hard team to figure out. They started out the season 3-0 with wins over the Titans, Jets and Raiders. After that, Miami lost three of their next four as the schedule got tougher and they started to play more road games. The team is coming off a 32-21 loss at home to Detroit as Brock Osweiler started once again. Osweiler couldn't build off his really good game against the Bears two weeks ago. The defense has been up and down this season as well. They've held four teams under 300 passing yards while the other three times teams have found success through the air.

“Houston has been quite the opposite as they started out the year 0-3 before going on their current four-game win streak. Deshaun Watson has cooled off a bit after a hot stretch toward the end of September. The offense has been underwhelming the last three weeks, but it hasn't mattered with the defense doing its job.”

They believe Houston will demolish Miami on Thursday.

The NFL Betting Power Ratings do indicate a line of Houston -7.
