Mother Nature was the Big Winner Between the Dolphins and Steelers 112707 Print

Public betting on the week 12 Monday Night Football game between the Miami Dolphins and the Pittsburgh Steelers showed 61% of bettors predicting the Steelers would cover the -16 point spread laid out by oddsmakers at Bodog. To say they were wrong would be an understatement.

Don't blame bad handicapping on this one though folks, blame mother nature. The real winners Monday night were those bettors who took under the total which was set at 38 points by oddsmakers at Bodog. The turf at Heinz Field was replaced only hours before the start of Monday nights game and a steady November rain never really allowed that sod to set properly.

The result was a sloppy scoreless affair that lasted until the final minutes of regulation. In the end, Miami remained winless on the season but easily covered at +16 point spread underdogs.

Next weeks Monday Night Football matchup pairs the still undefeated New England Patroits against the offense-less Baltimore Ravens. The point spread betting line for that game has opened at -20 in favor of the Patriots according to oddsmakers at Bodog. The over/under has been set at 51.5 total points.
