Dolphins Odds to Win Super Bowl

Miami Dolphins NFL Betting

The Miami Dolphins have won just one playoff game since Dan Marino retired at the end of the 1999 season. Miami doesn’t have the longest postseason victory drought in the AFC East (thanks Buffalo), but the Dolphins have gone two decades without a playoff win. During that stretch, this franchise has had some forgettable quarterbacks, but they are hoping that is about to change.

After a season of ‘tanking for Tua’, Miami selected the Alabama quarterback with the No. 5 overall pick in the 2020 NFL Draft. Tua Tagovailoa may or may not play this season, but the hopes of the franchise will rest on him for the foreseeable future.

There’s no question that Tua Tagovailoa has the skills needed to succeed in the NFL. He was easily the most polished quarterback Nick Saban has had at Alabama, and he was the frontrunner for the Heisman Trophy entering November in each of the last two seasons.

Unfortunately, injuries have cast a shadow over his future. Tagovailoa has suffered four injuries during his last two seasons, and he is coming off major hip surgery. That has led to some observers stating that Miami might essentially redshirt him for the 2020 campaign and go with veteran Ryan Fitzpatrick under center instead.

If the Dolphins do go with Fitzpatrick, they won’t make the playoffs. The Harvard product is one of the most entertaining quarterbacks in the league, but he has only led his team to more than six wins in a season one time in his 15-year career. He is the quintessential quarterback that is good enough to start for one of the 32 teams, but he is not one of the top 25 signal callers.

Incredibly, Fitzpatrick led the Dolphins in rushing in 2019. The journeyman quarterback carried the ball 54 times for 243 yards and four touchdowns, and no other player on Miami ran for more than  205 yards. Kalen Ballage averaged a paltry 1.8 YPC and never ran for more than eight yards, so the team brought in Jordan Howard to hopefully kick start the ground game.

There is some talent in the receiving corps. Undrafted free agent Preston Williams showed a lot of promise before tearing his ACL midway through the season, and Devante Parker shined even without a solid No. 2. Parker had more than 100 receiving yards in four of Miami’s last five games, and he will be the top target again in 2020.

Brian Flores got a lot out of this defense last season. Miami parted ways with some of its best players, but the Dolphins looked much better on this side of the ball as the season progressed after a disastrous first month. Christian Wilkins showed some potential up front, and the secondary eventually stabilized with Xavien Howard playing much better.

The defense got a lot of help this offseason. Shaq Lawson and Kyle Van Noy were signed away from division rivals, and the Dolphins drafted Noah Igbinoghene and Raekwon Davis with two of their top picks. It’s hard to see this team making the playoffs in 2020, but Miami is on the right path.
