Dolphins vs Colts NFL Week 12 Odds & Game Preview

Written by on November 22, 2018

After 10 games, there are very often two types of teams sitting at 5-5. There are those who are probably not going to make a run at the playoffs, while the rest appear to be hitting their stride at just the right time. This coming Sunday, we will see one of each of these teams go head to head in a critical playoff battle. The Miami Dolphins started the season strong, but they have been hit hard by the injury bug now and are slipping in the wrong direction.


They will be on the road to face an Indianapolis Colts team that is gaining more confidence with each passing week, especially with QB Andrew Luck beginning to look as though his shoulder woes are now a thing of the past. There is a logjam in the race for the Wild Card in the AFC, and as it stands right now, the Dolphins hold the tie-breaker over the Colts. Indianapolis will be looking to jump above Miami, and potentially the playoff line, with a win this weekend as an 8-point favorite. The point total for this one is set at 51.

Why bet on the Miami Dolphins?

The Dolphins are in dire need of a good performance after going just 1-4 SU in their last 5 games. The good news for Miami is that QB Ryan Tannehill has been upgraded to probable for this weekend. It’s going to be interesting to see if he gets the start or if he is only brought in when things start going south.


Given that the Dolphins really can’t afford to keep losing, chances are he will be under center if he is anywhere close to 100% healthy. The Dolphins could use some help, especially on the road, where they are just 1-9 SU and ATS in their last 10 games. They have also only won once in their last 6 visits to Indianapolis and are 2-4 ATS in those games.

Why bet on the Indianapolis Colts?

I’ll b the first to admit that I had the Colts written off in the early part of the season, but they have proven me, and many more besides, wrong. They are coming into this one on a 4-game winning streak, and while most of those wins have come against the lesser lights in the league, you cannot deny that the Colts have been firing on all cylinders.


Dolphins vs Colts should be a great matchup for Andrew Luck.


During their winning run, the Colts have been averaging a little over 36 PPG, with their 38-10 win over the Tennessee Titans last week perhaps being the most impressive performance of the bunch. The end result of all those points being scored is that the Colts have now seen the OVER hit in 5 of their last 7 games. The OVER has also come up in 6 of the last 9 games that the Colts have played against the Dolphins at home.
