Miami Miami

The Dolphins have been pretty amazing in the first 3 games of the season as they already beat the Patriots 20-7, the Ravens 42-38 and the Bills 21-19. Tua Tagovailoia one of the hottest quarterbacks right now and 2nd in the NFL with 925 yards 2 touchdowns and 2 interceptions. Jaylen Waddle is leading the team in yards received with 342 in 19 receptions and 3 touchdowns while Chase Edmonds has 79 rushing yards in 23 carries and 2 touchdowns.

The Dolphins defense had a great game in week 1 holding the Pats to only 7 points but then were passed by the Ravens and bounced back last Sunday vs Bills one of the toughest offenses in the leagu



TThe total has gone OVER in 8 of LA Vikings' last 10 games.

LA Vikings are 2-6 ATS in their last 8 games against Miami.

LA Vikings are 8-2 SU in their last 10 games against Miami.

The total has gone OVER in 4 of LA Vikings' last 5 games on the road.

Miami are 2-5 ATS in their last 7 games at home.

Miami are 2-4 SU in their last 6 games when playing at home against LA Vikings.

Miami are 2-6 ATS in their last 8 games against an opponent in the American Football Conference conference.



The Vikings offense exploded last week scoring 34 points vs Texans and are 8-2 in the last 10 head to head games vs Dolphins. Miami is playing great offense leaded by their quarterback Tua Tagovailoa. I expect both offenses to score easy on this game, the Dolphins will have some defensive players out so the best play is the over.

PICK: Over 47 (-110)
