Titans Dolphins Betting Predictions – Dolphins Face Must-Win Situation Against Titans
TheMiami Dolphins have played only half of their season. They're not even halfway through the month of November. However, they have already arrived at their first must-win game of 2012.
Tennessee Titans@Miami Dolphins –Sunday, November 11
Betting line: Miami -6
Why Tennessee Will Win
When football betting gurus look at this game, they're going to be mindful of the fact that the Dolphins fell short this past Sunday, getting eviscerated by an opposing quarterback. Indianapolis signal caller Andrew Luck riddled Miami's secondary for 433 passing yards. That's an obscenely large total, one that the Titans and head coach Mike Munchak are going to look at with glee. Munchak and his staff should be able to come up with a game plan that will focus on attacking the Dolphins' secondary, which is porous and lacking in confidence at the moment. If Tennessee can get great pass protection from its offensive front, the Titans should be able to move the ball steadily against Miami's defense.
The other thing that has to be pointed out is that Miami's four wins – while more than a lot of pundits were willing to bet on at this point in the 2012 season – have all come against teams with losing records. The Dolphins' 4-4 record is therefore not as impressive as you might first think. This is an overvalued Miami team with a rookie quarterback, Ryan Tannehill, who has yet to prove himself at a higher level the way Andrew Luck and Robert Griffin III have with the Indianapolis Colts and the Washington Redskins. Tennessee really has a shot in this contest, and it would be ignorant to think otherwise.
Why Miami Will Win
Various online sports betting legal outlets are asked to assess this game, they're going to put forth the simple truth: Tennessee is an utterly unreliable team. The Titans scored only 13 points at home against a very young and uncertain Indianapolis Colts defense a few weeks ago. They have been bombed by good teams at home, especially Chicago this past weekend in a 51-20 laugher. All three of their wins were extremely close games, but five of their six losses have come by at least 21 points.
Granted, Miami is not likely to hang a 21-point win on the Titans, but the Dolphins should be able to exploit Tennessee's defense, which has given up at least 30 points in seven of its nine games. You might indeed say, as was mentioned above, that Miami has not beaten very many really good teams this season, and you would be correct to say so. However, that's part of the point, isn't it? Miami is good at taking care of business against teams it should beat. The Dolphins don't mess around against inferior opposition, and it's a credit to this team, coaching staff, and franchise that it has built itself up enough to be better than its opponents half the time.
Who Will Win
It's true that Miami is vulnerable in the secondary, so that 's why this game will be close, with the Titans covering the spread. However, Miami will win the game outright with its offense.
