Bills Dolphins Betting – Bills Look To Bounce Back Against Suddenly Surging Dolphins
There is no denying that with five wins through their first seven games, Buffalo Bills’ fans had everyone reason to be excited about their team’s playoff prospects. The Bills were doing an excellent job moving the ball both on the ground and through the air, while their opportune defense was creating a ton of turnovers and making other teams pay. That has changed with consecutive losses to the New York Jets and Dallas Cowboys, and now Buffalo will try and stop the bleeding against the division rival Miami Dolphins.

The Dolphins are trending in the opposite direction, with consecutive wins on the heels of seven straight losses to open the season. While the offense has done an efficient job, the defense has been the biggest difference for a Miami team that has allowed just 12 combined points in consecutive wins after allowing at least 17 points in each of their previous sports betting losses.

Part of the reason for the Bills recent stalling has been the poor play of quarterback Ryan Fitzpatrick over the past couple of games, as he has thrown two touchdowns compared to five interceptions. If Buffalo is going to have any chance of getting back on track, it will begin with Fitzpatrick and his ability to make better decisions. Running back Fred Jackson continues to impress on the ground, but turnovers have really hurt the offense. If the Bills can avoid turning the ball over and force turnovers of their own the way that they did earlier in the year, they should be able to turn things around.

Some might wonder why the Dolphins haven’t played this good all season, as their defense is finally beginning to stand their ground and make plays. Miami won’t get much better play from quarterback Matt Moore, and fans may actually be cringing at their recent success as every win moves them further away from the first overall pick in next year’s draft and the potential to draft top prospect and Stanford quarterback Andrew Luck. The Dolphins will look to run the ball a little more this week at home to soften up the Bills’ defense so that they can go over the top, but that might be easier said than done.
Bills Dolphins Betting Preview: Outlook & Pick
Consecutive losses has put the Bills in a “must-win” situation this Sunday, and they will have to really buckle down on both sides of the ball against a Miami team that has been much better in recent weeks. The idea of Buffalo as the online sportsbooks underdog in this game would have been considered ridiculous only two weeks ago, and it truly is hard to expect the Dolphins to win a third straight.
