Miami Dolphins Betting Trends
The Dolphins are 10-2 against the spread in their last 12 games after allowing less than 250 total yards in their previous game and are 7-3 against the number in their last 10 games following an ATS win. That said, they’re also 3-8 against the number in their last 11 games versus a team with a winning record and are 2-7 at the betting window in their last nine games after accumulating less than 250 total yards in their previous game.
Atlanta Falcons Betting Trends
The Falcons are 5-1 against the spread in their last six games following an ATS loss, are 4-1 against the spread in their last five games after accumulating more than 350 total yards in their previous game, and are 4-1 at the betting window in their last five games coming off a bye. Where they have struggled, however, is coming off a loss. They’re 4-9 ATS in their last 13 games following a defeat.
OUR PREDICTION: Now that the Falcons are healthy again, they should put up plenty of points against a Dolphins secondary that has struggled. Julio Jones is back and while Mohamed Sanu is still out with a hamstring injury, Jones, Matt Ryan, Devonta Freeman, Tevin Coleman and Taylor Gabriel offers plenty of firepower. The over is 12-1 in the Falcons’ last 13 home games and is 18-7-1 in their last 26 games overall.
