Miami to Continue Bronco Domination?

Miami remains one of three winless teams and comes home to face a beatable Denver Broncos squad who will embark on a Tim Tebow regime.

That regime could last a quarter, a game, or maybe a season or two, but the former Heisman winner returning to Florida will create a bit of a circus atmosphere. Miami just wants a win and did not play well in losing to the Jets on Monday night. [ Check out story on Tim Tebow prop bets this week ]

Denver is 8-2 ATS in the past 10 seasons after their bye week but Miami has dominated the Broncos lately, going 6-0 ATS since 2002 and 8-1 ATS since 1985.

The line opened with the Dolphins favored by 3 but it hasn't already been bet back to EVEN by Bronco backers.
