The colourful Dolphins have been one of the NFL’s most popular franchises having won back-to-back Superbowls in the 1970s under the tutelage of the renowned Don Shula. They also gained more prominence in the 90s with legendary QB Dan Marino but since his retirement the Dolphins have failed to make significant impact on the NFL landscape. As a mediocre team, the ‘phins have a wave-like pattern on the betting lines.

Miami Dolphins Betting
The NFL is one of the most bet sports on the planet and depending on your sportsbook, there’s a lot of different ways you can bet. But perhaps the one you need to be most familiar with is the money line. This is picking straight up, which team you believe will win the game and each team will have a corresponding minus (favourite) or plus (underdog) number on them to indicate their price.
A favourite priced at -200 indicates you have to bet $200 to win $100 while an underdog priced at +180 means you win $180 on a $100 bet. The odds are a rough estimate on the winning probability of a team and the likelier a team is predicted to win the more expensive they are, vice versa. Prop bets are another popular betting option.
Before the NFL season starts, you can make a prop bet on how many total wins the Dolphins will get. If they are set at 8, you bet over or under at close to similar prices. You can also bet on the Dolphins to win the division or make the playoffs and depending how oddsmakers see them you could make a tidy profit.
The Dolphins, like most sub-500 teams are a really tricky team to bet on because they can beat Superbowl-caliber teams but also lose to lottery teams.
Doing intensive research on their trends from the last few seasons will really help determine if the oddsmakers’ read on them is accurate or not.
