The Dolphins are 2-0 on the season, 2-0 against the spread and playing in their home opener. Atlanta is 1-1 overall, 0-1 on the road and 1-1 against the spread. Atlanta has won three of its last four against Miami.

Trends show that the Falcons are 1-3-1 against the spread in their last 5 road games while Miami is 4-0 ATS in its last 4 home games and 5-1 ATS in its last 6 games on grass.

According to oddsmakers from Bovada.lv, Miami is favored at home, as the Dolphins have odds of -2.5 points against the Falcons. The over/under total for the game has been set at 44.5 points (View Matchup). The opening odds for this game had things at even, but the spread quickly moved to Miami and is at its peak with the Dolphins favored by 2.5 points. The over/under total opened at 44 points and has since added the hook.

Miami jumped out to a 2-0 start with road wins at Cleveland and Indianapolis. The Dolphins have been impressive on defense thus far, holding opponents to 15 points and 369.5 yards per game. Offensively, Miami is averaging just 23.5 points and 336.5 yards per game. Ryan Tannehill is leading the offense with 591 passing yards and two touchdowns. Defensively, Cameron Wake and Derrick Shelby have combined for 4.5 sacks.

The Falcons got their first win of the season, beating the Rams, 31-24 last week. Atlanta got awfully banged up in the win, losing a few key players, including running back Steven Jackson, who is out for a few weeks with a thigh injury. Atlanta still has a strong offense, led by quarterback Matt Ryan, who has thrown for 678 yards and four touchdowns in the two games. Julio Jones is off to a strong start as well, catching 18 passes for 248 yards and two scores.
