Week 2 Patriots vs Dolphins: Can you predict the score?

Including some history on the Patriots betting lines

The New England Patriots opened up as 4.5-point favorites against the Miami Dolphins, but the line has moved towards the Patriots being 6.5-point, and even 7-point favorites.

Per Odds Shark, 54% of the bets have been placed on the Dolphins covering, which means that people are pretty balanced even on whether the Patriots will win by a touchdown-or-more, and whether the Dolphins can keep it close.

The over/under was set at 43, but has declined to 41.5 or 42. This means the Patriots are expected to win 24.5-17.5.

The Patriots are 7-1 straight-up over the past two seasons when favored between 6.5- and 7.5-points. The one loss was the 2014 season finale when all the starters rested. The Patriots have a 3-3-2 (cover, not, push) record against the spread in those games and hit the under in 6 of those games.
