The Buffalo Bills remember the miracles that took place their last visit to South Florida as the entire fate of the franchise turned in a 22-16 season finale win on the 2017-18 regular season. Bills fans in Western New York, as well as those who flocked to Hard Rock stadium, were glued to the Bengals at Ravens game when Andy Dalton threw a last-minute touchdown to Tyler Boyd, propelling Buffalo into the playoffs.

The combination ended a long drought of postseason appearances by a franchise that lost four consecutive Super Bowls in the 1990s.

The Buffalo Bills offense ranks 31st in the NFL averaging (273.9) total yards per game averaging just (14.6) ppg only Arizona is worst in both categories. Running Back LeSean McCoy (426) rushing yards leads the leagues 17th ranked ground game (114.1) ypg. However, the Bills struggle to throw the football, and it shows wideout Zay Jones has a team-best 394 receiving yards.

As bad as they are throwing the football they’re the top pass defense team in the NFL allowing opposing offenses just (194.0) ypg through the air. Buffalo ranks 15th against the run, giving up (111.3) yards per contest on the ground and have forced eight fumbles, only Minnesota has done a better job in that category.

Buffalo knows the Dolphins will be out for revenge and they must keep the Miami offense off the field.

Bovada.Lv, list the Buffalo Bills at six total wins for the win the 2018-19 season.
Fans in South Florida had a bevy of questions for Miami Dolphins head coach Adam Gase about his approach to a questionable fourth down call which on third down and long he called a running play. Indianapolis quarterback Andrew Luck then led the Colts on a drive for the winning field goal sending the sellout crowd home happy.

The Dolphins offense looks more effective with Ryan Tannehill back under center; they’re 28th ranked total offense averages (313.6) total yards per contest. They rank 29th league-wide passing attack puts up (207.0) ypg through the air, and the number should get better with their starter back at the helm. Future Hall of Famer Frank Gore (595) rushing yards las the leagues 20th ranked running attack which produces (106.5) yards per game on the ground.

The Dolphins defense allows (398.0) total yards per contest which is 29th in the NFL while they give up (25.7) ppg which is tied with Cleveland.

Miami cornerback Xavien Howard intercepted Andrew Luck twice last week, and the former Baylor University standout should get pro bowl consideration. The Dolphins 20th ranked pass defense allows (258.0) yards per contest through the air.

Pass rusher Robert Quinn and Cameron Wake must beware of Allen on bootlegs which he’s capable of doing with perfection.

Bovada.Lv, list the Miami Dolphins at 6′ total wins for the win the 2018-19 season.

Are the Monsters of the Midway back or can the Fins flip the script again?

Some people call it riding the hot hand. Others say it’s jumping on the bandwagon. Either way, the Miami Dolphins are yesterday’s news while the Chicago Bears trend viral like Captain Trips. The two teams meet Sunday at whatever they’re calling the former Joe Robbie Stadium this week.

Sixty per cent of the betting public back da Bears following their spectacular 48-10 route of the Tampa Bay Buccaneers at Soldier Field. Quarterback Mitch Trubisky, whose surname still almost rhymes with ‘who is he?’ threw for 354 yards and six touchdowns while completing 19/26 passes. He also ran for another 53 yards, accounting for 92.5% of Chicago’s offensive output. Head coach and former arena football QB Matt Nagy’s offensive scheme receives the most credit for the Monsters of the Midway’s revival. It seems apropos with Michael Myers return to the screen at month’s end in the Hallowe’en reboot.

Mitch Trubisky and Matt Nagy get their signals straight

Mitch Trubisky and Matt Nagy get their signals straight.

Meanwhile, the Dolphins are experiencing Donald Trump-like support numbers after two consecutive losses. Their uninspiring trip to Foxborough, where the Patriots handed them their helmets, was unsucceeded by a stunning capitulation in Cincinnati despite leading by 14 at the half. Once again, Miami are pretenders in most fans’ eyes.

The experts aren’t so convinced. They’re leaning slightly towards Adam Gase’s squad to win this one at home, where they’re undefeated on the young season, despite the line holding steadily at +3.5 for the past two days. Nor can handicappers make up their minds regarding the total [41.5], which at least tells you they don’t expect Trubisky and his receivers to run riot on the road against the stellar Miami secondary.

That doesn’t mean the Bears won’t be a handful for the Dolphins defence. Nagy’s system is a fluid attack designed to exploit the soft spots in a defence on a play-by-play basis, using pre-snap motion to force opponents into tipping their hand. If a team is loading up against the run, they’ll go wide or over the top. If it’s spread, they’ll exploit the gaps.

Gase isn’t overmatched as a strategist. You don’t jump out to big half-time leads as the Dolphins did against Cincinnati or roar back from behind like they did against the Raiders without decent schemes. The problems are consistent execution and game management. Ryan Tannehill shouldn’t be throwing interceptions with a big lead. He should barely be throwing at all. Pound the ball; eat the clock.

Historically, the teams tend to trade wins. The Bears last won back-to-back against Miami in 1994 and ’97. The Dolphins haven’t done it since 1979 and ’85, the second game being the one where Dan Marino ended Mike Ditka’s run at a perfect season. The Dolphins came away 27-14 winners in 2014’s last meeting between the pair.

More recently, Miami are 1-4 against the spread versus winning teams while Chicago’s taken the under in their last four after winning by at least two touchdowns. The Dolphins have also gone under in their last four against winning teams. You have to pit those trends against the team’s mood after two embarrassing defeats away from home and their determination to keep their season above water.

Can the Dolphins tip the AFC East balance of power against the Patriots?

In 1978 the NFL increased its regular season schedule from 14 to 16 games per team. In 2002, the league realigned to form four divisions per conference, four teams per division. While 24-years apart, the two events combined to effect a permanent change on the league.

Divisional rivalries were reduced, exerting lesser influence on the season. Whereas GMs once drafted and coaches schemed to beat their rivals, they now had to take the entire league into account. Other influences contributed, such as increased player movement and domed stadiums in cities with extreme weather, but the net effect was a homogenized league. One team’s success was copied by 31 others. The respectively unique characteristics of the NFC Central and AFC West disappeared.

Jim Kiick, Larry Csonka and Mercury Morris defined the AFC East in the early 70s

Happily, memory carries the day. Rivalries survive on an emotional level. It’s why realignment left Dallas in the NFC East with Washington, Philadelphia and New York. This week, however, the renewed AFC East rivalry between the Miami Dolphins and New England Patriots has far more meaning than simple bragging rights.

The vaunted Patriots have been to eight Super Bowls and 12 AFC Championships since 2001. Their first Super Bowl appearance, in 1985, came the year after the Dolphins last made an appearance. They won that AFC Championship matchup against Miami. In the interim, the Fins reached a championship game just once more, losing to another AFC rival, Buffalo, in 1992.

Since the Bills ended their futile four-year Super Bowl run, the AFC East belonged to the Patriots. This season, perhaps this weekend, that could end. Tom Brady and the defending AFC champions are 1-2 on the young season. The Dolphins are undefeated. The teams meet in Foxboro in an early Sunday game that could change how we’ve perceived the division for two decades.

With a win, the Dolphins move to 4-0 SU and bury the Patriots in a 1-3 SU hole that makes even a playoff appearance a long shot. Not only would a Miami victory put serious pressure on the Patriots, it’d give Adam Gase’s squad every reason to believe it can contend for a Super Bowl this year. That’s a major power shift.

Can the Dolphins go into Foxboro and come away with the W? New England’s lone win this season came at home. Despite their poor start, the Pats are 6.5 point favourites ATS. So, the experts aren’t backing them.

No one believes the Dolphins can go to New England and force Tom Brady to cough up AFC East supremacy.

Recent trends suggest the Dolphins will at least put up a fight. They’re on a 5-0 run with the OVER against losing teams and 5-1 ATS in their last six after holding an opponent to less than 90 yards rushing. The Dolphins run defence didn’t look too convincing against the Raiders last week but Jon Gruden’s side focussed too heavily on the passing game, allowing Miami to roar back from a first-half deficit to take control in a 28-20 SU win.

On the other hand, the Pats tend to respond after defeats. They’re on a 4-1 string with the OVER against winning teams. Bill Belichick’s side is also 5-1 ATS in their last six after a loss while the Dolphins are running 0-6 ATS in New England. The home team’s 11-1 ATS in the last twelve meetings between New England and Miami, the favourite 8-3.

Everything points to the Pats pulling their fat from the fire. I hate it when everything or everyone points to a certain outcome. Is Hillary Clinton President? Is a 25-point lead in the Super Bowl insurmountable? Did La La Land win the Oscar? Okay, so the last one’s a little silly. You get the point. I’m backing the Dolphins.

Oakland Raiders at Miami Dolphins Week 3, 2018 NFL Betting Preview.

Written by National Football League Expert Analyst Bobby Wallace.

Charliessports.com produces it for Football News. Sunday NFL Predictions are the best in the industry and will continue through the Super Bowl in February of 2019. Football Betting will BURY BOOKMAKERS Thursday-Sunday in the NFL and College landscape. Charliesssports.com is on fire in the NFL going 3-0 last Sunday in week-two on our signature 500* Triple Lock making a $300.00 bettor a small fortune playing all three straight, in a round robin, and teaser. Thursday, September 20th We Also win our Signature 500* NFL and NCAAF Triple Lock. The (0-2) Oakland Raiders head south to the Sunshine State on the heels of last Sunday’s collapse in Denver. Oakland led 19-7 with 5-minutes left in the third quarter before Case Keenum put Denver on his shoulders leading them to a 20-19 win. Oakland is 1-1 ATS staying UNDER in both games this season. The (2-0) Miami Dolphins got a division road win at MetLife Stadium over the New York Jets for their second ATS cover in 2018. The OVER is 6-1 the last seven between the teams dating back to the 2007 season.

Sunday’s kickoff will be 1:00 PM EST at Hard Rock Stadium in Miami Gardens, Florida. The CBS Television Network will be broadcasting. The Betting Line has Oakland as a three-point road underdog against the point spread. The betting odds total is forty-four and a half points for Sunday’s contest.

Jon Gruden probably wishes he would’ve handled the Khalil Mack situation a bit different but the former ESPN analyst sticks to his guns and believes if a player isn’t in training camp he’s not dependable. Quarterback Derek Carr engineers a unit that puts up 384 yards per game on 6.3 yards per play. Last week the former Fresno State standout completed 29 of 32 passes for 288 yards with a touchdown. As good a the Raiders are on offense the UNDER is 5-0 the previous five against the AFC, but the last five vs. Miami has gone OVER the total. Oakland native Marshawn Lynch aka BEAST MODE is showing signs of slowing down last week he ran for 65 yards on 18 carries.

The Raider defense isn’t the same without Mack, and it shows as they’re allowing opponents 375 yards per game with very little pressure on quarterbacks. However, they shouldn’t have much of a problem with the Miami offense that doesn’t sustain drives. Oakland must keep the Dolphins defense on the field in what should be humid weather conditions. Bovada.Lv, list the Oakland Raiders at +4,000 to win the 2018-19 AFC Crown.

Miami Dolphins head coach Adam Gase got rid of locker room distractions in the offseason by sending Mike Pouncey, Jarvis Landry, and Ndamukong Suh packing. The results have been positive, but for how long? Future first ballot hall of fame and South Florida native Frank Gore was brought in for leadership; he’s still get something in the tank. Quarterback Ryan Tannehill doesn’t scare opponents, but he’s solid. Week three is where Miami shows their true colors, 0-4 ATS their last four. The OVER is 4-0 their last four vs. A team with a losing SU record.

Coming off of 6-10 campaign in 2017 they decided to draft safety Minkah Fitzpatrick from the University of Alabama, and he’s already showing a level of maturity needed in a culture change. Former Rams standout Robert Quinn is an elite pass rusher who is teaming with Cameron Wake but can they stop a prolific Raider passing attack Sunday? Miami has performed very well against Oakland over the past decade but Sunday will be different as Gruden who resides near Tampa will show family members why he returned to the sideline. Bovada.Lv, list the Miami Dolphins at +400 to win the 2018-19 AFC East Title.

It’s been a while since Dolphins fans had something to cheer about.

Written by National Football League Betting Expert Analyst Greg Nelson.

Charliessports.com produces it for Football News. NFL Point Spread Predictions are the best in the industry and will continue through the Super Bowl in February of 2019. After making the playoff as a wildcard in 2016-17 head coach Adam Gase experience a sophomore slump finishing with only six victories, as usual controversy followed Miami last season with Jay Ajayi getting traded in October which was a bad move and Jarvis Landry got shipped off to Cleveland in the offseason. Making matters worse they lost their quarterback before the season began forcing Gase to call Jay Cutler out of retirement, another mistake. We are in year three of the Adam Gase experience, and there is plenty of work to be done at Dolphins camp, but owner Stephen Ross continues to have a positive mindset. The question is will he hire the thirteenth head coach in franchise history at the end of the season.

It’s evident to Miami Dolphins fan that Gase is not sold on Tannehill and to prove it he signed Brock Osweiler who the coach in Denver. All indications are that Tannehill is the starter with Osweiler serving as the backup but don’t count on it. The quarterback carousel has to come to an end, and it won’t happen until either coach or signal-caller leaves South Florida. Without the services of wide receiver Jarvis Landry who was their most valuable asset, it’ll be up to former New England slot receiver Danny Amendola or Albert Wilson to shine. The Dolphins rushing attack ranked twenty-fifth in the NFL last season with just (86.8) yards per contest which is why they brought in former University of Miami star Frank Gore, they believe he’s got something left in the tank. Kenyan Drake led the team in rushing with (644) yards in 2017 and showed flashes of brilliance. Whoever runs the football they’ll need the offensive line anchored by tackle Laremy Tunsil to open holes, and it’ll have to be without former All-Pro Mike Pouncey. Veteran Josh Sitton comes over from Chicago. A decision has to be made early about the quarterback position for success in Miami. The Dolphins covered the spread in just five games last season; however, Las Vegas will have them, underdogs, most of 2018-19 and usually are a good cover when there are no expectations.

The release of Ndamukong Suh one of Miami’s most celebrated free agents in franchise history will force Davon Godchaux and Jordan Phillips to fill enormous shoes. Miami gave up an average of (24.6) points per contest last season, twenty-ninth league-wide. Defensive coordinator Matt Burke understand there’s work to be done and the acquisition of pass rush specialist Robert Quinn to go along with Cameron Wake looks like a nightmare for offenses on paper, a lot of NFL player personnel directors believe both have lost a step. Linebacker Kiko Alonso has been a model of consistency since arriving in South Florida with rookie Jerome Baker along with his former teammate at Ohio State Raekwon McMillan, there is talent at the position. McMillan missed all of 2017 with a knee injury suffered the first time he took the field in preseason. Minkah Fitzpatrick will make an immediate impact teaming with hard-hitting Reshad Jones, Miami could have the best starting safeties in football. Cornerbacks Cordrea Tankersley and Xavien Howard are getting better with each snap. Getting to the quarterback is a must in 2018-19 for Miami if Quinn and Wake can produce Miami will be formidable, but there is the nightlife on South Beach. Bovada.Lv, list the Miami Dolphins at 12/1 to win the 2018-19 American Football Conference East division Crown.
