Dolphins end skid
The Miami Dolphins snapped a two-game losing streak last week with a 13-6 win against the Jets at home. The Dolphins have still dropped four of their last six games and are 5-4 on the season. They are also 5-4 against the spread and 5-4 with the over. Miami has hit the over in three of its last four games.
Miami is putting up 20.8 points and 334.9 yards per game on offense this year as it deals with injuries. Quarterback Ryan Tannehill remains out with his shoulder injury and Brock Osweiler will get another start. He has thrown for 1,034 yards and six touchdowns with three interceptions this year. Veteran back Frank Gore is leading the Dolphins on the ground with 438 yards. Defensively, Miami is giving up 25 points and 405.2 yards per game. The unit has just 15 sacks this year, but does have 15 interceptions.
Packers looking to get on track
The Packers are coming off a 31-17 loss at New England last week for its third loss in four games. Green Bay is now 3-4-1 overall, 3-5 against the spread and 5-3 with the over. The Packers have hit the under in their last two games.
Green Bay is still putting up some big yardage numbers this year, averaging 430.3 yards per game despite resulting in only 24 points per contest. Aaron Rodgers has thrown for 2,542 yards and 15 touchdowns with just one interceptions. He has been sacked 23 times this year. Davante Adams is the leading receiver with 58 catches for 730 yards and seven touchdowns while Aaron Jones is the leading rusher with 349 yards and two scores. Defensively, Green Bay is giving up 25.5 points and 373.8 yards per game. They have 25 sacks and have forced nine turnovers.
NFL Betting Trends
Miami has hit the under in four of its last five road games, but has hit the over in six of its last eight against a losing team.
The Packers are 23-8 with the over in their last 31 games overall and 15-6 with the over in their last 21 following a failed cover.
Green Bay should be eager to take some frustrations out on Miami after tough back-to-back road games against the Rams and the Dolphins. Aaron Rodgers still has to believe he can lead Green Bay to the playoffs or a division title, so I look for him to come out firing on Sunday against a poor Miami defense. Miami has given up at least 27 points in five of its last six games and I look for the Packers to get into the 30’s. Miami can score a little as well against a Green Bay defense that is suspect as well.
NFL Prediction: Dolphins/Packers Over 47.5
