Public Betting Trends

According to oddsmakers from online sports book, the Dolphins are 3-point favorites to beat the Raiders. The total, meanwhile, sits at 43.5 points. As of this writing, 55% of the public betting tickets are on the Raiders to cover the point spread.

Oakland Raiders

Marshawn Lynch (shoulder) was limited at Wednesday's practice. It's the same routine Lynch went through last week. He'll likely be upgraded to full Thursday. Lynch isn't in any danger of sitting out Week 3.

Miami Dolphins

Ryan Tannehill is listed on the Week 3 injury report with knee and ankle injuries. He's practicing in full, but it's notable with Tannehill's ACL history. Tannehill has played better than expected to open the year, though it's come against two of the league's worst defenses. He's not on the Week 3 streaming radar.

NFL Betting Trends


The under has cashed in nine straight Raiders games.


The over is 10-4 in the Dolphins’ last 14 home games.


That Oakland Raiders under streak ends on Sunday. Yes, the Raiders collapsed last week in the fourth quarter in Denver. They were also playing in altitude and Derek Carr was still outstanding. Carr won’t be nearly that efficient two weeks in a row but I do expect him to play well and I do expect the Raiders’ defense to surrender plenty of points themselves. Following back-to-back low-scoring performances themselves, I like the Dolphins to open things up offensively this week as well.
