What a crazy offseason it was for the Miami Dolphins. They fired head coach Brian Flores, who then sued the franchise and the NFL for racial discrimination. They hired Mike McDaniel, the former San Francisco 49ers offensive coordinator, to replace Flores.
Miami also made a huge splash in the free agent market. They signed offensive linemen Terron Armstead and Connor Williams, running backs Chase Edmonds, Raheem Mostert, and Sony Michel, and wide receiver Cedrick Wilson. The Dolphins wanted to give McDaniel plenty of offensive weapons to work with.
However, the biggest weapon was acquired in a trade with the Kansas City Chiefs, as Miami brought in Tyreek Hill to help bolster their offense. Pairing Hill with Jaylen Waddle should make for a very dynamic offense. The key to the offense will be the development of Tua Tagovailoa. Tagovaiola has been highly scrutinized in his first two seasons. We’ll see if having a lot of weapons at his disposal will help speed up his development. With all that said, it’s time to have a look at the Miami Dolphins and a NFL Betting Guide for the 2022 Season.
Dolphins 2022 Season NFL Betting Guide to Help You Bet On Their Odds
2022 Projected Win Total
The oddsmakers have spoken, and the over/under for the Dolphins has been set at 8.5 wins. It’s hard to believe that it’s this low, but it’s obvious that the oddsmakers don’t believe in Tagovailoa. The Dolphins defense struggled to start the 2021 season, but they rebounded nicely and the Dolphins still won 9 games. This team has much better personnel and should be able to put up a lot of points and do an adequate job of stopping the other team from scoring.
If we were going to place a bet on the Dolphins win total, we’d go over the 8.5.
Odds to Win the AFC East
Unfortunately for the Miami Dolphins, they’re in the same division as the Buffalo Bills. Buffalo is a -250 to win the division, while the Dolphins have the second-best odds at +400. Buffalo is the favorite to win the Super Bowl this season. If Josh Allen were to go down, we’d like the Dolphins a lot more, but if that doesn’t happen, we see the Dolphins as a wild card team.
Odds to Win the AFC
The Dolphins are a +2000 to win the AFC. Even though Miami has one of the most talented rosters in the conference, the AFC is loaded this season. As we stated earlier, Buffalo is the favorite to win the Super Bowl. The AFC West is loaded, as the Kansas City Chiefs and Los Angeles Chargers should both be playoff teams. We can’t forget about the tough AFC North with Cincinnati, Baltimore, Cleveland, and Pittsburgh.
If the Dolphins want to win the AFC, they’re going to need Tagovailoa to have a monster season, and they’ll need to catch a lot of breaks along the way.
Odd to Win the Super Bowl
At a +4000 to win the big one, the Dolphins would be a great value bet. We think it’s a big longshot, especially since they could be the 7th or 8th best team in their own conference. Anything can happen, and if some key players for other teams go down with injuries, and Tagovailoa exceeds expectations, the Dolphins could be a sneaky Super Bowl pick.
