The Dolphins are a Bad Investment

The Miami Dolphins look like they may have already packed it in this season after last week’s 30-14 loss, but bettors have already learned to stay far away from the Phins this season. The Dolphins are just 4-10 ATS on the season and have not covered in their past five games. Miami will take a trip to Lucas Oil Stadium to visit the Indianapolis Colts on Sunday.

Shark Bites
  • The UNDER is 14-7 in the Colts' past 21 games.
  • The Dolphins are just 1-8 ATS in their past nine home games.
  • Andrew Luck made an appearance at practice last week, but there is no word on whether he will play this week.

The Dolphins have now ensured their first losing season since 2012, the first year under lame duck coach Joe Philbin. The past two weeks have seen the Dolphins defense allow seven passing touchdowns while only mustering one lone sack.

Despite a 6-8 record, the Colts are still very much alive in the AFC South picture, but they will need some help to make the playoffs.  Indy is on a three-game losing streak that has seen them surrender 45 or more points twice.
