With that thought in mind, let’s get started with my quartet of free picks on four Miami Dolphins 2016 regular season games.
Here’s a Closer Analysis of the Miami Dolphins Top NFL Spreads for the Upcoming 2016 Regular Season!
Tennessee Titans at Miami (-5.5)
Analysis: While I’m not real high on the Miami Dolphins heading into 2016, the fact of the matter is that this is a home game the Dolphins almost have to win if they want to have any chance at a successful season. Tennessee lost seven of its eight road games in 2015 while going 3-4-1 ATS along the way and I believe they made a mistake by hiring longtime NFL veteran Mike Mularkey as their new head coach after firing Ken Whisenhunt last season.
While Miami was just 3-5 SU and 2-6 ATS at home last season, I do like the hiring of former Bears offensive coordinator Adam Gase, although I’m still not – and may never be – quite sold on underachieving quarterback Ryan Tannehill. In the end, I’m going to back the Miami Dolphins to narrowly cover the spread, mostly because they’re playing at home and could be desperate for a win, even at this early juncture of the 2016 regular season.
The Pick: Miami 30 Tennessee 24
Buffalo Bills at Miami (-1)
Analysis: The only reason I like the Dolphins at home in this Week 7 AFC East divisional battle is because Mimi lost both regular season meetings against the Bills a year ago and five of the last six meetings overall. The good news for the Fins is that they’ve gone 3-2 SU and ATS over their last five home games against Buffalo. Miami gets a small measure of revenge.
The Pick: Miami 27 Buffalo 24
New York Jets at Miami (PK)
Analysis: The Dolphins have lost three straight games against the Jets and a stunning four straight at home against their longtime division rivals. While I don’t think the Dolphins are going to be better than New York in 2016 and I certainly don’t believe that Adam Gase will be a better head coach than New York’s Todd Bowles, I am going to urge you to back the Dolphins to cover the NFL betting line in this one, for absolutely no concrete reason at all other than the fact that the Fins are due for a win against the J-E-T-S!
The Pick: Miami 21 New York 20
San Francisco 49ers at Miami (-5)
Analysis: These teams have met only three times dating back to 2004, so I won’t get into a whole lot of ATS statistics that mean nothing for this matchup. The long and short of it is that both of these teams have new head coaches with the Niners choosing former Eagles and Oregon offensive genius Chip Kelly to lead them in a new direction just weeks after he infamously flamed out in Philly.
While I believe Kelly is the better offensive mind over Gase in this contest, Miami is playing at home against a Niners team that, on paper, is about evenly matched against the Fins. Again, sheer desperation will be the driving force behind a Miami win. Well, that and the fact that Kelly cares absolutely nothing about defense whatsoever The Dolphins win and narrowly cash in as my final NFL online sportsbook pick!
The Pick: Miami 38 San Francisco 31
