Texans vs. Dolphins Free Pick
The Miami Dolphins will try to reach .500 on the season with a win today over the Houston Texans at 1:00PM ET.
According to oddsmakers from online sports book Mybookie.ag, the Dolphins are 4.5-point home favorites versus the Texans after opening as a 5-point fave. As for the total, it opened at 43 and has been bet up to 44.5.
Houston enters play with a 2-4 record and is 2-4 at the betting window this season, while Miami is 2-3 straight up and 2-3 against the spread. At home, Miami is 0-1 against the spread while Houston is 1-2 against the number on the road this season.
The under is 4-1-1 in the last six meetings between these two teams and should hit again today. Miami's defense looked greatly improved coming out of the bye week, as the Dolphins held the Titans to just 10 points last Sunday. Lamar Miller also rushed 19 times for 113 yards and a touchdown in the victory and Miami will likely lean on him again today. Expect both teams to attempt to establish their running games in what should be a defensive struggle throughout.
