Dolphins Packers Betting – Dolphins Out Of Warm Weather Climate To Face Packers Sunday
It will be a climate change culture shock for the Miami Dolphins when they travel to Wisconsin this Sunday to take on the Green Bay Packers. Playing in the warm temperatures of South Beach has kept them calm and relaxed, but that will change as the cold October air creeps over them at Lambeau Field. These teams have one of the oldest rivalries in football betting, and its renewal will be key for both teams, as they continue to make a push in their division while coming off big losses.
NFL Betting: Miami Dolphins @ Green Bay Packers
Online Sports Betting: Packers – 4
The Dolphins entered their bye a week ago on the heels of a blowout loss to the New England Patriots on Monday night football, one that has Miami sitting at .500, two games back of the division-leading New York Jets in the AFC East. Meanwhile, Green Bay is coming off a big loss of their own, after falling 16-13 to the Washington Redskins in overtime, and are now a game back of the Chicago Bears for top spot in the NFC North.
Why To Bet On The Dolphins?
While the Dolphins’ defense has been solid against the pass this season, Miami has struggled against the run, and will need to tighten up a bit against Green Bay. Fortunately for them, the Packers don’t run the ball as often as some of the other teams they’ve faced, preferring to go with a pass-heavy offense. Miami fired its special teams coach after getting blown away by the Patriots two weeks ago, so cleaning up that part of their game will be key. The Dolphins’ offense is still in transition with wide receiver Brandon Marshall carving out his role with quarterback Chad Henne, so any scoring from the special teams would be a bonus.
Why To Bet On The Packers?
Despite being one of the football betting favorites in the NFC this season, the Packers have been the definition of mediocrity, and are ranked 15th in both pass and run defense, as well as in rushing offense. A loss this week would give them a mediocre .500 record as well, but that’s something Green Bay fans are hoping to avoid. Quarterback Aaron Rodgers will be tested this week, and must take his game back to the level it was at through the Packers’ first two wins of the season. Green Bay enters a tough stretch of their schedule after this week, which will feature the Minnesota Vikings, at New York to face the Jets, and then back at home against the Dallas Cowboys.
How The Game Will Play Out
Green Bay understands that a win here will be crucial to them keeping pace with the Chicago Bears, particularly considering their schedule over the next few weeks. Miami will not be ready to pound it out in the cold, and the Packers will capitalize.
