Rams vs. Dolphins Week 6 Odds
MIAMI, FL (The Spread) – Two young teams playing with a lot of confidence will square off in Miami this Sunday when the Dolphins host the Rams at 1:00PM ET.
ST. LOUIS: The Rams, who are the youngest team in the league led by Jeff Fisher, are off to a great start considering that some pundits didn’t even have them winning a game this year. St. Louis is 3-2 after beating the Seahawks (19-13) and Cardinals (17-3) in back-to-back home games. The well-rested Rams are also 4-1 against the spread this season, while the under has covered in three of their first five games. Sam Bradford has combined 1,022 passing yards, while Steven Jackson has a team-high 271 rushing yards. Danny Amendola, who leads the team in both receiving yards (395) and touchdowns (2), will miss the next few months with a shoulder injury suffered in the first half of the Arizona game. He will be greatly missed on a St. Louis team with a stagnant offense.
MIAMI: The Dolphins turned heads last week with their 17-13 victory over the Bengals in Week 5. They’re now 2-3 on the year with close losses to the Jets and Cardinals being the difference in them having a losing record and posting a win-loss total above .500. Miami is 3-2 against the spread and has covered in each of the last two weeks as underdogs. Sunday will be the first time they’re favored in a game, and the over is 3-2 in the Dolphins’ first five games. Reggie Bush leads the team in rushing yards (417) and touchdowns (3), while rookie quarterback Ryan Tannehill has thrown for 1,269 yards thus far.
ODDS: Oddsmakers from online sports book Bovada.lv have installed the Dolphins as 3.5-point favorites over the Rams, while the over/under total is currently sitting at 38 points. St. Louis is 3-2 overall and 0-2 on the road, while Miami is 2-3 overall and 1-1 at home.
TRENDS: The home team is 4-0 against the spread in the last four meetings between these two teams, while the Rams are 5-1 AS in their last six games overall. That said, they’re 2-10 ATS in their last 12 road games and 1-7 ATS in their last eight games versus a team with a losing record. Miami, meanwhile, is 9-0 ATS versus a team with a winning record and 12-3 ATS in its last 15 games overall.
