With the Miami Dolphins one win behind the Buffalo Bills and ahead of New England in the standings, it's never been a better time to snatch them up to win the division at 5-1 (payout $500 on a $100 bet).

ESPN broke the news Tuesday afternoon that Tua Tagovailoa will become the team's starter moving forward.  Dolphins head coach Brian Flores confirmed the news Wednesday morning.

Flores said the Dolphins feel that starting Tagovailoa is what's best for the team, citing the rookie's performance in meetings, walk-throughs and practices.

"He's gotten more comfortable -- accuracy, decision-making have been good in practice. ... We're comfortable and confident that he'll be able to competitive in those games when that time comes," Flores said.

The Dolphins head coach did say he regretted the news got out before he could sit down and discuss with players.

Tagovailoa would replace popular veteran Ryan Fitzpatrick.  He has led the Dolphins to two consecutive wins by a combined score of 67-17. He also has the seventh-best QBR (79.6) in the NFL.

Division rivals Buffalo and New England, meanwhile, lost their last two games, thus making the Dolphins an excellent value to win the division at 5-1 odds
