Gambling911.com special contributor Tony George of TonyGeorgeSports.com questions how it is possible that the Miami Dolphins will be an underdog in Baltimore for NFL Week 13.

Miami @ Baltimore (-3.5)

The Ravens cashed a ticket last week against the hapless Bengals laying 5 points in a game that came down to the wire when Andy Dalton fumbled the game away, meanwhile the Dolphins beat San Fran for their 6th win a row.  It is apparent to me that oddsmakers and sports fans are discounting the job that Adam Gase is doing here in Miami.  The Ravens at 6-5 lead their division but their schedule has been weak and they have barely beat lesser teams than Miami.

Miami has a more balanced offensive attack and are running the ball extremely well, taking the heat off their QB and also playing some decent defense.  The Ravens have lost to any good team they played this year, beat the Jags by 2 points, beat the Steelers when Big Ben came back to soon and played terrible, and beat the Browns twice.  Not a resume that scares me when taking the points, and the KEY in this game, which should be tight, it the hook on the number of 3, which the Ravens are laying 3.5.  I think this comes down to the number itself, a 3 point game one way or the other, and having the hook on a fall number is worth taking with a red hot Dolphins team against a beatable opponent on the road.

Remember one thing, you are betting into numbers and not games, and this also may be a strong side in a 2 team 6 point teaser taking the Dolphins to +9.5 and getting through the key numbers of 6 and 7 along the way!   The Dolphins are 0-11 ATS with games in December dating back over 2 years, but the tide has changed in Miami and and outright SU win would not surprise me here.
