NFL Free Pick: SF/MIA
The Miami Dolphins have been one of the more surprising teams in the NFL this year and will look to keep their postseason dreams alive this Sunday when they host the San Francisco 49ers.
Oddsmakers from online sports book Sportsbook.com have made the Dolphins –6.5 point spread favorite. The over/under for this game has been set at 41.5 total points.
Key Trend: The 49ers are 4-1 against the spread in their last five games and 5-1 against the spread in their last six games when playing Miami. The Dolphins are just 1-4 against the spread in their last five games.
Key Stat: San Fran is averaging over 20 points a game this season, while Miami is allowing opponents to score 20 points per game.
Game Outlook: There’s no question that the Dolphins should win this game. Teams traveling from the West Coast to the East Coast usually have issues winning, but that doesn’t mean that San Fran won’t cover. The public should push this game up to at least a touchdown by kickoff, making the 49ers an even more attractive play. San Fran has been more competitive since Mike Singletary took over as interim head coach and they’re coming off an impressive win over the Jets last week at home. Quarterback Shaun Hill and the defense should keep this game close throughout and give the Niners a cover, but not a win.
