Betting market: This line was quite stable until news broke that Ryan Tannehill would be returning.

Initially 10-point dogs, the Dolphins moved to +9 after the announcement. The line moved even more on Wednesday morning thanks to a steam move, driving them to +7.5.

Miami had been a trendy dog with Brock Osweiler set to start and remains one with Tannehill under center, getting 55% of spread bets as of writing (see live data here). Mark Gallant

Trends to know: The Dolphins are averaging 19.9 points per game, which ranks 26th in the NFL.

Andrew Luck has had a ton of success when facing teams with poor offenses. According to our Bet Labs data, he’s 19-6-2 (76%) against the spread when facing a team averaging fewer than 20 points per game, profiting bettors 12.6 units and making him the second-most profitable NFL quarterback behind Tom Brady.
