  • On Tuesday afternoon, the Dolphins announced that Ryan Tannehill will start Sunday against the Colts (4:25 p.m. ET, CBS) after missing more than a month due to a shoulder injury.
  • Following the news, the Dolphins dropped from +10 to +9 against the Colts.

The Brocketship era is over … for now. Shortly after 3 p.m. ET on Tuesday, the Miami Dolphins announced that Ryan Tannehill is expected to start Sunday’s game against the Indianapolis Colts (4:25 p.m. ET Sunday, CBS).

Tannehill has been dealing with a capsule injury in his right shoulder that forced him to miss the past five games. During that time, Brock Osweiler led Miami to a 2-3 record, both straight up and against the spread.

With Indy playing some dominant ball as of late, including a 38-10 victory over Tennessee in Week 11, oddsmakers opened the Colts as 10-point favorites against the Dolphins.

Following news that Tannehill is likely to return, the market adjusted the line to -9.

Even before the injury news broke, bettors weren’t buying into Indy’s recent success, as 55% of spread bets and 70% of dollars were on Miami.

With the change under center, it will be interesting to monitor whether the public support holds up and if the line continues to move toward the key number of seven.

The over/under was also slightly impacted, with Pinnacle adjusting the line from 50.5 to 51.
