Miami Dolphins NFL Week 13 Odds

Miami Dolphins NFL Betting

This is the last easy game on the schedule for the Miami Dolphins. Miami will host the hapless Cincinnati Bengals this week before a brutal stretch run that will see the Dolphins as underdogs in three of their last four games. Brian Flores has done an excellent job getting this franchise into playoff position with a record of 7-4, but the Dolphins will likely need to win at least two more games in order to return to the postseason. They are currently double-digit favorites per the NFL betting odds in a game they can’t afford to lose.

Miami Dolphins Week 13 Matchup

Flores and Chan Gailey have yet to announce who will be the starting quarterback for Miami this week. Tua Tagovailoa is the quarterback of the future and started all four of the Dolphins’ games after the bye week, but Ryan Fitzpatrick might be the quarterback of the present. The veteran Fitzpatrick has been able to move the ball more consistently, and that could lead to him starting over Tagovailoa even if he is able to play through his thumb injury this week.

Whoever ends up starting will likely be targeting DeVante Parker first and foremost. Parker leads the team with 52 receptions for 642 yards and four touchdowns in 2020. Tight end Mike Gesicki is the second leading receiver, but he has been a favorite of Fitzpatrick more than Tagovailoa.

Miami is hoping that Myles Gaskin can return after missing the last four weeks due to a knee injury. Gaskin has run for 387 yards and two touchdowns (3.9 YPC), and he has twice as many rushing yards as anyone else on the Dolphins. The team has had to use multiple free agent signings in his absence, so it would be nice for the Dolphins to have some stability once more.

Stop me if you’ve heard this before. Cincinnati has one of the worst defenses in the NFL. The Bengals are outside the top 20 in every major defensive category, and they are surrendering 4.8 YPC and 136.7 YPG on the ground. Defensive tackle Geno Atkins has not been the same, while Carlos Dunlap was traded, and D.J. Reader is on injured reserve.

The Bengals were competitive with No. 1 overall pick Joe Burrow under center. However, Burrow’s season-ending injury means that Ryan Finley or Brandon Allen will be the quarterback the rest of the way. Neither Finley or Allen has looked good so far, as the two have combined to complete 20 of 49 passes for 166 yards with a touchdown and two interceptions.

Tyler Boyd will probably be the top option in the passing game. Boyd is Cincinnati’s leading receiver with 725 yards and three touchdowns, and he has been largely used to run underneath routes. Gio Bernard could see some action as a receiver out of the backfield too. Bernard and Joe Mixon have combined to average just 3.5 YPC this season, so this offense might be the worst in the NFL through the final five games of the season.

The Dolphins have been the epitome of a bend, but don’t break defense. Miami is second in the NFL in scoring defense (18.6 PPG), but this unit is surrendering 369.6 YPG. The run defense has not been good, yet Cincinnati probably won’t be able to take advantage.

Miami Dolphins Week 12 Recap

Fitzpatrick took the reins once more for Miami in a comfortable 20-3 win over one of his many former teams in the New York Jets. The Dolphins have now won six of their last seven games, leaving them one game behind the Buffalo Bills for first place in the AFC East.

The Jets could only pick up 10 first downs and 260 total yards against the Dolphins’ defense. Sam Darnold went 16 of 27 for 197 yards with two interceptions, while Frank Gore averaged 4.1 YPC. Meanwhile, Fitzpatrick completed 24 of 39 passes for 257 yards and two touchdowns, while Miami ran for 4.1 YPC as a team.

The loss moved the Jets to 0-11, and they were outscored by a combined total of 44-3 by the Dolphins in their two games this season.
