Miami has been a strong bet when facing the Broncos

allen_dolphins

The Miami Dolphins are 5-3 SU and 7-1 ATS in their last eight games against the Denver Broncos. The Dolphins will try to continue to reward their backers with another win at home over the Broncos on Sunday.

SHARK BITES
  • The Dolphins are 9-2-1 ATS in their last 12 games against AFC West teams.
  • The Broncos are 9-0 ATS in their last nine games in Week 13.
  • The total has gone OVER in the Dolphins’ last six games.

The Dolphins wish they could go back to when they just had problems on offense. The offense still isn’t playing well, but the defense has surrendered a staggering 35.4 points per game over Miami’s last five games. The team is 0-5 SU and 0-4-1 ATS over that stretch. This could be a good opportunity to get the defense back on track with Denver’s 26th-ranked scoring offense coming to town this week.

Denver is mired in an even worse slump than Miami, going 0-7 SU and ATS over its last seven games. Like the Dolphins, the Broncos have been struggling on both sides of the ball, losing those seven games by an average margin of 15.3 points. Trevor Siemian has a modest 11-to-10 touchdown-to-interception ratio and a 79.2 passer rating, but he’s back in the starter’s role with Paxton Lynch injured and Brock Osweiler ineffective.

Opening Odds & Computer Pick

Sportsbooks, including Bovada, had set the Miami Dolphins and Denver Broncos as EVEN on the opening line for this contest. The total was hovering around 38 earlier in the week (check for the current OVER/UNDER lines at MyBookie).
