Browns Dolphins Betting – Dolphins Look To Keep Playoff Hopes Alive Against Lowly Browns Sunday
If you ask a fan at Sun Life Stadium before this Sunday’s Miami Dolphins game whether or not they feel their team still has a legitimate shot at making the postseason, the answer would be simple. The Dolphins rebounded from a shutout loss to the Chicago Bears to beat the Oakland Raiders 33-17 last Sunday, and although they aren’t in the driver’s seat at 6-5, fans and team personnel still haven’t given up on their goal of making the playoffs.
Any talk of making the postseason will come to an end this week however, if the Dolphins fail to secure a victory against the Cleveland Browns. Miami hasn’t won consecutive games since the first two weeks of the year, but there will be no excuse if they can’t get the job done against the visiting 4-7 Browns.
Why To Bet On The Browns
Despite a slow start, the Browns have rebounded with wins in three of their last five, including big victories over the defending Super Bowl champion New Orleans Saints and the New England Patriots. Cleveland has just one win on the road in five tries this year, but the fact that it came against the Saints holds merit. Despite quarterback Jake Delhomme continuing to turn the ball over, the Browns have found a quality rusher in running back Peyton Hillis, who became the third Cleveland player in the past 20 years to rush for three first-half touchdowns. Hillis finished with 130 yards last football betting weekend, and will be relied on heavily for another strong performance this week.
Why To Bet On The Dolphins
The Dolphins were down to their third quarterback in the loss to the NFC North-leading Bears two weeks ago, but have still won three of their last five, including a 16-point win in quarterback Chad Henne’s return last Sunday. Henne threw for 307 yards and two touchdowns, while running back Ricky Williams ran for 95 yards and another score. Miami has just one home win in five tries this season, but that has to give sooner rather than later, and with the next two games against the Browns and Buffalo Bills, there will be no excuse for Henne and company not to get the job done.
How The Game Will Play Out
The city of Miami is desperate for a win at Sun Life Stadium, especially with the performance of their college football betting Hurricanes lately. The Dolphins still feel that they have a legitimate shot at making the postseason, so this game will be played under do-or-die circumstances. The Browns limp in to this game with one road win this season, and have only put together consecutive victories once this year. Don’t expect for that to happen again as the Dolphins get the win they need to keep their slim hopes alive.
