NFL betting odds have been difficult to figure for the Miami Dolphins as they have played better on the road than at home so far with the NFL betting lines.
The Miami Dolphins will host the Pittsburgh Steelers Sunday with a CBS telecast that will kickoff at 1PM Eastern. Sports-Gambling opened with Pittsburgh as a 3 point favorite and with an over/under of 40.
Pittsburgh has a NFL football gambling record of 4-1 both straight up and against the spread and is coming off a 28-10 home win and payoff against Cleveland in Ben Roethlisberger’s first game back as starting quarterback. The Steelers defense is looking Vintage Steel Curtain and ranks number one in the NFL for points allowed.
The offense has been led by running back Rashard Mendenhall, who has 495 yards and a 4.3 yards per carry average with 5 touchdowns. Big Ben had a nice 112.7 QB rating last week with a 3/1 touchdown/interception ratio.
The Miami Dolphins have a betting on NFL football record of 3-2 both straight up and against the spread. The road team has won and covered all 5 of Miami’s games this year and the Fish are coming off a thrilling 23-20 overtime win at Green Bay last week. Miami ranks 24th in scoring on offense and 23rd for points allowed on defense.
Chad Henne has an 85.3 QB rating with a 7/5 TD/INT ratio as the backfield tandem of Ronnie Brown and Ricky Williams are again the main offensive threats as both backs are over 4.3 yards per carry on the season. Henne is averaging just 7.0 yards per pass attempt.
The Steelers have paid out in just 3 out of their last 10 as a road favorite but the Dolphins have covered 8 of their last 9 as a dog. Pittsburgh has gone over the total in 21 out of their last 31 AFC games. Miami has gone under the total in 18 out of their last 26 games that follow a straight up win.
Pittsburgh beat the NFL betting odds in last year’s meeting between the teams 30-24 as 3 point road favorites as the game went over the total.
