Seahawks Dolphins Betting Tips – Seattle Proves its Mettle on the Road
Seattle Seahawks @ Miami Dolphins – Sunday November 25, 2012 1:00PM EST
The online sportsbook experts never expected the Seattle Seahawks or the Miami Dolphins to be in the playoff hunt this late in the season. Despite being 4-6, the Miami Dolphins is still considered to be in the AFC playoff race and the team could even be considered to be in the hunt for the AFC East title. The playoffs are a longshot for Miami and the AFC East title is an even longer shot, but the fans in Miami are just excited to have a competitive team with a sensational rookie quarterback.
At 6-4, the Seattle Seahawks are in the thick of the battle for an NFC playoff spot and the NFC West title. The legal online sports betting experts point out that the NFC West leading San Francisco 49ers is 7-2-1 and in the middle of a potentially dangerous quarterback dilemma. The Seahawks know that it needs to keep winning if it wants to take full advantage of any potential confusion in San Francisco. The Seahawks have also been pleasantly surprised at the play of its rookie quarterback Russell Wilson. The veterans on the team have maintained that Wilson is playing like a 10-year veteran and that the entire team has full confidence in Wilson’s ability.
Why the Dolphins Will Win
Miami rookie quarterback Ryan Tannehill has turned out to be the right choice for the job, but the running back position is not quite as stable. When the season started, the football betting experts watched as Reggie Bush established himself as the starting running back for the Dolphins. But Bush has fallen out of favor and is coming off of being benched for lack of production. This opens up the Miami running game to be an element that the Seahawks are unfamiliar with and unable to prepare for.
Why the Seahawks Will Win
Russell Wilson has formed a bond with wide receiver Golden Tate that has produced several game-winning scores for Seattle. The Seahawks also have a punishing ground game that sets up Wilson and the passing game perfectly. But what will really set Seattle apart in this game is its defense. The Seahawks’ defense is aggressive, fast and smart. It is getting better with each game and it has more than enough weapons to be able to keep Tannehill and the Miami offense under control.
The Bottom Line
The Seattle Seahawks needed to improve if it wanted to keep pace with the San Francisco 49ers in the NFC West. The Miami Dolphins play in a division where the only competition is the New England Patriots. That means that Miami does not have far to go to be a playoff contender in the AFC. In this game, the Seahawks will use several of its offensive and defensive weapons to show Miami how much more developing it really needs to do.
Pick: Seattle Seahawks
