NFL football betting handicappers will have a first place showdown of 2-1 teams that will be looking to take the division lead and score a pro football betting payoff.
Sports-Gambling opened with the New England Patriots as a 1 point road favorite over the Miami Dolphins with an over/under of 45.5. Kickoff is at 8:40 PM Eastern.
The New England Patriots have a NFL sports betting record of 2-1 straight up and 1-2 against the spread with all 3 games going over the total. The Pats scored a 38-30 shootout win over Buffalo last week but failed to payout as 14 point chalks.
New England’s young defense is struggling thus far and is ranked an alarming 28th in the NFL for points allowed. New England is the top scoring team in the league and quarterback Tom Brady has a 109.1 QB rating for a fine start to the season. BenJarvus Green-Ellis has a 4.5 yards per carry average to balance out the attack.
The Miami Dolphins have a NFL football gambling record of 2-1 both and against the spread with just 1 of their games going over the total. Miami lost their home opener last week on NBC Sunday Night Football to the New York Jets 31-23.
Chad Henne has an 88.1 QB rating but was intercepted in the end zone at the end of last week’s game as he failed to deliver the comeback. Ronnie Brown has been sharp with 5.4 yards per carry and the defense ranks 11th for points allowed.
New England has paid out in 19 of their last 28 games as a road favorite with 6 of their last 7 games in that role going under the total. Miami has been horrible at home long term with just 15 payouts in their last 56 games. The Fish have gotten the money in 8 out of their last 10 AFC East Division games.
