49ers vs. Dolphins Prediction
Will the Dolphins cover for the sixth consecutive game when they host the 49ers at 1:00PM ET today in Miami?
According to oddsmakers from online sports book BetDSI, the Dolphins are 7-point home favorite versus the 49ers while the over/under currently sits at 45.5 points. Both the point spread and total have moved off the original numbers posted by oddsmakers, as Miami went from -7.5 down to -7 and the total dropped from 46.5 to 45.5.
49ERS KEY TRENDS: The 49ers are 1-5 against the spread in their last six road games and are 3-12-1 at the betting window in their last 16 games when facing a team with a winning record. They're also just 1-8 against the number in their last nine games overall, are 1-7 ATS in their last eight games following a loss, and are 1-4 against the spread in their last five games after allowing more than 250 yards passing in their previous game.
DOLPHINS KEY TRENDS: The Dolphins have covered the spread in five consecutive games and are 10-1 at the betting window in their last 11 games after allowing less than 250 total yards in their previous game. That said, they're just 5-11 against the spread in their last 16 home games and are 14-42-1 at the betting window in their last 57 home games when facing an opponent with a losing road record.
OUR PREDICTION: No reason to bet against the red-hot Dolphins, especially when facing a 49ers team that is 2-8 against the spread in their 10 games this season. Since Jay Ajayi has become the focal point of Adam Gase's offense, the Dolphins have taken off. Ryan Tannehill is also playing significantly better over Miami's five-game winning streak than what he was at the start of the season. At some point the Dolphins are going to lay an egg, but I don't see it coming at home against a 49ers team that has nothing to play for but pride.
