Football betting fans have been stunned at the turn of fortunes for the Miami Dolphins after their playoff season of last year while Buffalo has been a profitable football gambling team. Miami may be a team that came too far too fast in the 2008 football betting season as they won the AFC east after finishing 1-15 in 2007.
Like a stock that was over-valued the Dolphins are now going through a football gambling market correction as they are 0-3 both straight up and against the spread. Miami has gone under the football betting total in 2 out of 3 games.
Last week the Dolphins suffered a 13-23 football betting loss at San Diego as 5.5-point road dogs. Miami’s offense has been dreadful so far as they rank 27th in football betting for points scored. The big problem has been quarterback Chad Pennington and his 76.0 quarterback rating.
Backup Chad Henne’s is even worse at 44.2. Pennington is on the injured list indefinitely so Henne is going to have to pick up his game. Miami’s ground attack ranks 2nd best in football betting and will likely have to carry the load to take the heat off of Henne.
Ronnie Brown leads the attack with 254 yards rushing. The Buffalo Bills are 1-2 straight up but a profitable 2-1 against the spread. Last week Buffalo suffered their first football betting loss against the spread in a 7-27 defeat at the hands of the New Orleans Saints as 5.5-point home dogs.
Buffalo’s defense has been the main football betting weakness as it ranks 23rd in points allowed. Keep in mind that the Bills could easily be 2-1 as they suffered a heart breaking opening night loss at New England in which they covered as huge underdogs.
Miami has gotten the cash in just 1 out of their last 5 games and has dropped 5 consecutive games against the spread at home. Buffalo is 7-3 straight up and 8-2 against the spread versus Miami in this head to head series.
