Dolphins vs. Bills Prediction
Will the Buffalo Bills keep their faint playoff hopes alive with another win at home today when they host the Miami Dolphins at 1:00 p.m. ET?

Who We Like: Buffalo. Miami is coming off a highly impressive win over the Patriots on Monday night but therein lies the problem. Was that the Dolphins' Super Bowl? Even Jay Cutler seemed all-in to beat the Patriots, so how much energy did they invest in that game and how much is left in the tank? Just six days after beating the defending Super Bowl champs at home, the Dolphins will travel to snowy, cold Buffalo where they have nothing to play for and take on a Bills team that still has a shot to make the playoffs. No thanks
The other reason to like the Bills? They're getting their quarterback back. Tyrod Taylor might not be a favorite of his own organization, but he's the best signal-caller that Buffalo has. The Bills are 6-2-1 against the spread in their last nine home games versus a team with a losing road record while the Dolphins are just 1-4 against the number in their last five road games. Miami is also 1-6 against the spread in its last seven games after playing on Sunday following a Monday night game.
