Bills Dolphins Betting – Dolphins Try To Keep Slim Playoff Hopes Alive Sunday
When the Miami Dolphins welcome the Buffalo Bills to town this Sunday, they will be looking to keep their slim playoff hopes alive. The Dolphins are 7-6 following a 10-6 win over the New York Jets last weekend, but will need to win at home this week where they have just one win all season.

Online Sports Betting Odds: Miami – 5.5
The Bills on the other hand have been out of contention for a while, but can play the role of spoiler with a big divisional game this Sunday. Four of Buffalo’s last five losses have been by three points, and given the way the team has rallied together down the stretch, there is no reason to think that an upset isn’t possible.
Why To Bet On The Bills
Buffalo has won three of its last five, and if a couple of overtime losses had gone the other way, they would be looking very good the last couple of months. For the Bills, the biggest problem has been a lack of finish, something they had no problem with in last weekend’s 13-6 win over the Cleveland Browns. Ryan Fitzpatrick threw for 142 yards and a touchdown while running back Fred Jackson rushed for 112 yards as Buffalo secured the victory. Buffalo has looked very good of late, and given that Miami has lost five of six at home, including two weeks ago against the same Browns’ team the Bills just beat, there is potential for an upset here.
Why To Bet On The Dolphins
For whatever reason, Miami has not been able to win at home this season. The same team that has taken down the Green Bay Packers and New York Jets on the road also lost to the Browns at home, but it will only be so long before they get back on track. Two of Miami’s final three games are at home against teams with losing records, and if they can manage to clinch both victories, it would set up a huge football betting showdown with the New England Patriots in the season finale that could include a playoff berth on the line. The Dolphins rank in the top-ten against both the run and pass defensively, but will need to find their offensive rhythm against Buffalo.
How The Game Will Play Out
While the Bills have played pretty good football over the past few weeks, the Dolphins enter this game with everything on the line, and still have a chance to make the postseason. Miami can finish as good as 10-6, and although that may still not be good enough to make the playoffs, their hopes are still alive and they will have plenty of incentive. Falling to 1-6 at home would be simply unacceptable for a team many projected as a legitimate contender.
