Monday Night Football Betting Preview: Prime Time Hasn’t Been Kind to Dolphins

For the third week in a row, the Miami Dolphins will take center stage in prime time when they travel to Bank of America Stadium for a date with the Carolina Panthers in the Week 10 edition of Monday Night Football.

MyBookie opened the Dolphins as 9-point road underdogs with a total of 39.5.

Shark Bites
  • The total has gone OVER in five of the Dolphins’ last six games in November.
  • The Panthers are 9-2 SU and 8-3 ATS in their last 11 games after winning as an underdog.
  • The total has gone UNDER in four of the Dolphins’ last five games against the Panthers.

The Fish have never played three straight night games, and bettors will be hoping they can buck their recent trend of underperforming in that spot. Miami was routed 40-0 in Week 8 Thursday Night Football before falling 27-24 at home to Oakland in Week 9 Sunday Night Football.

In the wake of the Jay Ajayi trade to Philadelphia, Kenyan Drake and Damien Williams rushed for 86 yards but couldn’t find the end zone. The Dolphins still haven’t scored a rushing touchdown this season. Dating back to last year, Miami is a brutal 1-10 SU in its last 11 road tilts vs teams with winning records.

The Panthers are a game behind the first-place New Orleans Saints in the NFC South. Like Miami, Carolina also made a shocking trade deadline move when No. 1 wide receiver Kelvin Benjamin was dealt to the Buffalo Bills. Devin Funchess has since been thrust into the top role, and the wideout looked solid against the Raiders, collecting five catches for 86 yards – his highest yardage output in 2017.

Carolina hasn’t been coming through when playing under the bright lights of prime time either. In the Panthers’ last seven night games, they’re an ugly 1-5-1 ATS. On the year, the Panthers are 5-4 ATS.
