NFL Week 8: Miami at Buffalo Game Odds & Info

Why bet on Miami versus Buffalo? 

Miami averages 18.1 points per, but there are signs the Dolphins offense is coming to life. In the loss to Atlanta on Oct. 24, the Fins rushed for 132 yards from 29 carries. Tua Tagovailoa completed 32-of-40 for 291 yards. Tua threw a couple of picks, but he also tossed 4 touchdowns. Miami scored 28 points. If the Dolphins offense has the same success on Sunday, Miami can keep this to within the spread.

Why bet on Buffalo versus Miami?

Buffalo heads into this after their bye. That alone gives them an edge. Another edge? The Bills trounced the Dolphins 35-0 in a road win earlier this season. Buffalo failed to keep their winning streak alive in their last. But that was because the defense couldn’t stop Derrick Henry. Miami’s rushing game isn’t close to being as effective as Tennessee’s.

Dolphins at Bills Relevant Trends

If Miami were the team playing off a bye, they’d be a strong play. But the Dolphins aren’t, which is why we can’t give Tua and the Fins the benefit of the doubt to cover.

Buffalo has been the most consistent team this season. The loss to Tennessee shouldn’t have happened and probably wouldn’t have if not for suspect play-calling.

In any case, the Bills rank first in total yards allowed, first in passing yards allowed, and second in points allowed. Opponents average 16.7 versus Buffalo.

When Josh Allen and the offense has the ball, the Bills are impossible to stop from scoring touchdowns. Buffalo ranks second in points scored each contest at 33.8 per game.
