Against the Spread (Devlin Duckett)
The Miami Dolphins (6-3) have won six of their last seven contests, and are riding a massive wave of momentum. Meanwhile, the Denver Broncos (3-6) are losers of three of their previous four, and are almost officially out of contention. Broncos’ head coach Vic Fangio’s is on the chopping-block, and his team is desperate for a win here. The Dolphins defeated the Chargers 29-21 in Week 10, and have become a serious threat to win the AFC East. Miami’s fifth-ranked defense should have a lot of fun with Denver, who leads the league in giveaways with 21. The Dolphins’ offense scores the ninth-most points in the NFL, and has been steady behind rookie QB Tua Tagovailoa. The Broncos were pummeled 37-12 by the Raiders last week, turning over the ball five times in an embarrassing loss. Denver QB Drew Lock looked miserable, completing just 23-of-47 passes while throwing four interceptions. Lock is questionable to play. The Broncos’ defense allowed 203 rushing yards and four touchdowns on the ground. Miami is 7-2 ATS this season, and 16-5 ATS in its previous 21 games. Dolphins’ head coach Brian Flores will have his surging squad fired up for this skirmish in Denver. Miami will be tied with idle Buffalo at 7-3 with a win, although the Bills currently win the tie-breaker. Dolphins 40, Broncos 26
Over/Under (Zack Robinson)
Tua Tagovailoa has been impressive for the Miami Dolphins. Last week, the rookie QB threw for 169 yards and two touchdowns, but that’s not all, he hasn’t thrown a single interception so far in three games as a starter. The defense has been pretty good lately, allowing just 20.2 points per game (fifth best in the league).
The Dolphins average 27.9 points per game and the total has gone over in four of Miami’s last six games against an opponent from the AFC West.
QB Drew Lock is questionable (ribs), but maybe that’s for the best. He threw four interceptions in Week 10 against the Las Vegas Raiders, so maybe it’s time for a change in Denver. The Broncos have two great running backs in Philip Lindsay and Melvin Gordon, but the game plan doesn’t help them explode.
The total has gone under in 13 of Denver’s last 19 games at home. Go under in a defensive matchup.
