Which 1-7 Team, Dolphins Or Texans, Is The Best Bet On Sunday

  • The Miami Dolphins are favored by 5.5 points over the Houston Texans.
  • The Texans have +195 betting odds to earn their second win of the season.
  • The total for the game is set at 46.5 with -110 odds on both sides.

MIAMI – The Miami Dolphins and Houston Texans may be two of the worst teams in the NFL, but when playing against one another their betting odds have value.

As both teams sit at 1-7 on the season and at the bottom of the AFC’s standings, one of these lackluster teams will earn their second win of the season (barring a tie, of course). Online sportsbooks are giving the Miami Dolphins a moderate advantage over the Houston Texans to emerge victoriously.

Dolphins vs Texans Spread Odds

  • Miami Dolphins -5.5 -110
  • Houston Texans +5.5 -110

The big news for Houston is that Tyrod Taylor will start for the first time since Week 2. The Dolphins may not see as much success as the sportsbooks expect them to with Taylor back under center.

Taylor earned the Texans their only win of the season in Week 1 and was 10-11 for 125 yards and a touchdown in Week 2 against the Cleveland Browns before going down with the injury. The team was performing well with Taylor running the show and could be a viable underdog moneyline bet with him back in the lineup.

Dolphins vs Texans Moneyline Odds

  • Miami Dolphins -235
  • Houston Texans +195

The teams have two of the three worst rushing offenses in the NFL, meaning the pass defense will likely be crucial. The Dolphins allow the second-most passing yards per game with 291.1 while Houston’s is surprisingly good, giving up just 253.3 yards per game.

Betting The Total: 46.5 Points

The total for the game opened at 45.0 points but has since been bet up to 46.5 on NFL betting sites. The UNDER in Houston’s last six road games has gone UNDER five times and could do so again in this matchup.

Dolphins vs Texans Total Odds

  • OVER 46.5 -110
  • UNDER 46.5 -110

Miami has also seen six UNDERs in their last eight games against teams with a losing record. The Dolphins have only scored three or more offensive touchdowns once this season which should play a large part in helping the UNDER hit.

The game will begin at 1 p.m. EST and can be seen on FOX.
