MIAMI: The Dolphins fell 12-10 to the Seahawks in Seattle last Sunday but did cover as a 10.5-point road underdog. The under 43.5 also cashed as quarterback Ryan Tannehill and running back Arian Foster struggled.

NEW ENGLAND: The Patriots upset the Cardinals 23-21 as a 9-point road underdog, while the combined score of 44 fell a half-point short of the 44.5-point total so the under also cashed.

OUR PICK: The Patriots' don't have the Seahawks' defense but they too should hold Tannehill and Co. in check this week. Garoppolo might also struggle against a Miami defensive line that is one of the best in the AFC, led by Ndamukong Suh, Cameron Wake and Mario Williams. The under is a perfect 4-0 in the Dolphins' last four games overall and 4-0 in their last four games versus AFC opponents. The under has also cashed ins ix of the last eight meetings between these two teams.
