Miami Dolphins vs. Atlanta Falcons Betting Odds

Miami Dolphins vs. Atlanta Falcons betting odds featured a line of -4 everywhere including at BetUS.com.  This is one of the most solid lines we have seen here at Gambling911.com.  Every book online and in Vegas featured the Falcons at -4 and this was where the game opened as well.   Not a single variance to be found. 

The experts seem to be down on both Miami and Atlanta following their monumental turnarounds last season.

Peter Schrager of ESPN.com on Atlanta:

In '08, Atlanta defied the odds and made the playoffs with a rookie head coach, first-year general manager, rookie quarterback, rookie offensive tackle and first-year starter at running back. They were fortunate that all of their major playmakers on offense stayed healthy from September to January. Matt Ryan, Michael Turner and Roddy White were all injury-free, and the defense stayed relatively intact. In short, they were the complete opposite of the 2009 New York Mets. There's no guarantee the team can stay so healthy in '09.

And that defense? The unit was 24th in the league last year. Though there were upgrades across the board, there are still several holes - specifically at cornerback and safety. The Falcons' starting defensive backfield consists of journeyman Brent Grimes, third-year man Chris Houston and safeties Thomas DeCoud and Eric Coleman. There's not much else on the bench. That look like a division winning defensive backfield to you?

Well, those of us here at Gambling911.com think that both these teams will do just fine.  One will kick off the season on the right foot, the other won't.

These teams had entirely different make ups back in 2005 when Atlanta managed to beat Miami both tries by a touchdown and a field goal, respectively.

Here are some important Miami Dolphins vs. Atlanta Falcons betting odds trends:

Dolphins are 5-0 ATS in their last 5 games as a road underdog.

Dolphins are 1-7-2 ATS in their last 10 games in September.

Falcons are 9-2 ATS in their last 11 games in Week 1.

Under is 7-1 in Falcons last 8 games as a favorite of 3.5-10.0 while the Under is 5-1 in Dolphins last 6 games overall.

Atlanta was getting around 65 percent of the betting action on the spread but most of the money line action was going Miami's way.
