The Dolphins are coming off their first win of 2019, but are they a good bet this week?
Jacoby Brissett (knee) will likely be a game-time decision meaning Brian Hoyer will be the Colts’ starting QB if Brissett can’t go. Our experts think that the uncertainty surrounding the Indianapolis QB situation means that coach Frank Reich will devise a ground-heavy game plan against the Dolphins’ weak run defense.
Let’s dig into their analysis and see how our staff is betting this spread.
Dolphins-Colts Injury Report
Which team is healthier? Dolphins
Running back Mark Walton was suspended for four games earlier in the week and Miami will also likely be without cornerback Ken Webster (ankle), who hasn’t returned to practice this week. Other than that, everyone else is trending towards playing since most players on their injury report have at least got in limited practices.
T.Y. Hilton (calf) still hasn’t returned to practice and is expected to be out again. Wide receiver Parris Campbell (hand) also hasn’t resumed practicing since he had hand surgery, leaving Zach Pascal, Chester Rogers and Deon Cain to run in 3-WR sets.
Surprisingly, Brissett (knee) hasn’t missed any practice despite spraining his MCL last week against the Steelers. It certainly seems like he’s trending towards playing, but we’ll have a better idea once we get statuses on Friday. — Justin Bailey

Colts RBs vs. Dolphins LBs
Whether the Colts go with an injured Brissett or an aging Hoyer at quarterback, I expect they will rely on their running backs to ease the load. That’s a wise decision: The Dolphins have been horrible against opposing backfields this year.
