Week 17 Patriots vs Dolphins Betting Odds: Can you Predict the Score?

New, comments

The New England Patriots opened up as 8.0-point favorites over the Miami Dolphins, but the line has moved towards double digits at 10.0. Some outlets even have the Patriots as 11.5-point favorites.

Miami has cracked 21 points just once over the past nine games, dating back to the Patriots 36-7 victory in week 8, and just three times this whole season.

Dolphins quarterback Ryan Tannehill had blood in his urine (completely serious) last week and was sacked six times against the Colts. Receivers Jarvis Landry and Rishard Matthews are banged up. The Miami coaching staff has no idea how to use their offensive players.

The over/under is set at 47.0 and 85% of the money has been placed on the under. As New England looks to trot out another battered offense, and the Dolphins offense is in horrible shape, both teams will likely fall below their seasonal averages.

The lines project a 28.5 to 18.5 Patriots victory, but will the Patriots take the foot off the gas if they build up an early lead?

Can you predict the score?
