According to oddsmakers from online sports book Bovada.lv, the Vikings are 3-point home favorites to beat the Dolphins tonight. As for the total, the number currently sits at 38 points.

Public Betting Information
Public bettors are hammering the home team in this matchup. Of the current wagers placed on tonight's game, 77% of tickets are on Minnesota minus the three points.
OUR PREDICTION: It really hasn't mattered which unit has been on the field for the Dolphins, they're hemorrhaging points this preseason. After holding the Falcons to "only" 20 points in their preseason opener, Miami has surrendered 31 and 38 points, respectively, their last two preseason games. The Vikings, meanwhile, are coming off a 32-point effort versus the 49ers last Sunday. While Minnesota minus the three is a good bet, I'll take the over tonight.
