New England Patriots Vs Miami Dolphins Betting Lines

Team Spread Moneyline Total
New England Patriots +2.5 (-105) +125 O46.5 (-110)
Miami Dolphins -2.5 (-115) -145 U46.5 (-110)

Patriots quarterback Mac Jones shined in Week 1, going 35/54 for 316 yards, three touchdowns and one interception. Unfortunately for Patriots bettors, the one interception was returned for a touchdown and was the difference in a 20-25 defeat.

Still, Jones’ performance is encouraging for betting on the Patriots at sportsbooks for the NFL because it was the third-highest passing yards total of his career. The Eagles were the best in the NFL for passing yards allowed last season, giving bettors confidence for the +125 moneyline odds against a Dolphins team that gave up 228 passing yards in Week 1.

Can New England’s Defense Stop Tyreek and Tua?

The deciding factor for betting on this divisional Week 2 matchup is if the Patriots can slow down the dynamic Dolphins offense. Quarterback Tua Tagovailoa threw for 466 yards and three touchdowns in Week 1, with Tyreek Hill accounting for 215 yards and two touchdowns.

Since both New England and Miami had impressive offensive performances in Week 1, the best bet at online Florida sportsbooks is the over at 46.5 points. Both teams are in the top five for total yards per game and gave up a combined 59 points in Week 1.
