Will the under cash when the Dolphins and Ravens square off on Thursday Night Football this week?

Where: M&T Bank Stadium, Baltimore, MD

Current Point Spread Odds & Over/Under Total

According to oddsmakers from online sports book Bovada.lv, the over/under for this game currently sits at 37.5 points after opening at that same number. As for the side, the Ravens opened as a 3-point home favorite and that's where the line currently sits at the majority of online sports books.

Public Betting Information

As of this writing, the Dolphins are receiving 56% of the tickets from public bettors. Miami has won three straight games to get to 4-2 on the season and are 3-2-1 against the spread. Baltimore, meanwhile, is 3-4 straight up and has failed to cover in four of its seven games on the season.

Key Betting Trends

The Dolphins are winless at 0-7 against the spread in their last seven games versus the Ravens. That said, the road team is 5-2 against the number in the last seven meetings between these two teams and the underdog has cashed in seven of the last 10 meetings between these two teams. Miami is also 12-3 at the betting window in its last 15 games played in Week 8.

Our Prediction

Joe Flacco has been brutal all season. He's coming off a 186-yard passing performance versus the Vikings in which he did throw for a touchdown, but also fumbled three times. Baltimore is having difficulties protecting Flacco, who was sacked five times in that loss at Minnesota. He averaged under five yards per pass attempt and the Ravens' passing game continues to struggle. Making matters worse, Mike Wallace (concussion) and Jeremy Maclin (shoulder) are both banged-up ahead of Thursday night's game with the Dolphins.

Miami can be had through the air but its run defense is stout. If Baltimore can't take advantage of the Dolphins' below-average secondary then points will be at a premium in this matchup. I like the under.
