Miami Dolphins Player Stats
Miami Dolphins Odds, Bet Types, and Team History
The Miami Dolphins won 10 games, became one the league’s best defensive teams and potentially found their franchise QB in 2020. In spite of all of these things, it wasn’t enough to prevent Miami from missing the playoffs for a fourth consecutive season. While missing the playoffs at 10-6 is a disappointing end to any season, the Dolphins have a lot to look forward to in 2021.
Quarterback Tua Tagovailoa went 6-3 as a starter in his rookie season, throwing for 1,814 yards and 11 touchdowns against five interceptions. He showed flashes of the potential that made him the No. 5 overall pick in the 2020 NFL draft. A full offseason and practicing solely with starters should benefit him in his second year.
Tagovailoa will also benefit from playing with much of the same offense, in addition to some newcomers. Leading rusher Myles Gaskin (584 yards) and receiver DeVante Parker (793 yards) are both back. But the Dolphins also added veteran RB Malcolm Brown to the backfield, signed wide receiver Will Fuller V (879 yards, eight touchdowns in 2020) and drafted Tagovailoa’s former college teammate Jaylen Waddle with the sixth overall pick in 2021.
Miami’s defense vastly improved last year, going from 32nd in points allowed to sixth. Nine starters return for this unit, headlined by cornerback Xavien Howard . The first-team All-Pro selection led the NFL with 10 interceptions in 2020 and added 20 pass breakups and a forced fumble.
The Dolphins open the 2021 NFL season at the New England Patriots.

Dolphins Team Rivals
At 10-6, Miami finished second in the AFC East. The Dolphins started 1-3 before winning nine of 12 games to end the season. They missed the expanded playoffs though as all seven AFC teams won at least 11 games. Miami last made the playoffs in 2016 and hasn’t won the East since 2008.
The Buffalo Bills went 13-3 to win their first AFC East title since 1995. Buffalo reached the AFC Championship Game as the division’s lone playoff team. The New England Patriots were third at 7-9 with their fewest wins since 2000. And the New York Jets placed fourth at 2-14, losing 13 straight to open the season before closing it out with wins in two of the last three games.
Betting on the Miami Dolphins
Miami Dolphins Point Spreads
Betting point spreads are wagers based on the expectation that a team will win or lose by a certain number of points. The Dolphins went 10-6 overall but 11-5 against the spread. Miami’s 10 wins were by an average of 13 points and its six losses were by 10.7 points, though a 30-point Week 17 loss inflates that margin a bit.
Here’s an example:
- Jets +2.5 (+110)
- Dolphins -2.5 (-110)
In this situation, the Jets are 3.5 point underdogs against the Dolphins. If Miami wins the game by three or more points, a $100 wager on the Dolphins would come with a payout of $90.91. If New York won the game outright or lost by two points or less, the same $100 wager would net $110 plus the original $100 for a total of $210.
Miama Dolphins Over/Unders
Over/under, also called point total, is a wager placed on the combined scoring of a single game. Bookmakers come up with a number and you can either bet the over or — you guessed it — the under. Here’s how it works:
Let's say the Bills play the Dolphins and the over/under is set at 51 points. A wager on the over would require Buffalo and Miami to score 52 total points or more to win. Betting the under is an expectation that the two teams would score 50 or fewer points. It's also possible for the bet to push, which would happen if the game finished with exactly 51 points scored.
In 2020, Miami averaged 25.3 points per game (15th in NFL) and allowed 21.1 points (6th in NFL). The Dolphins were below average when it came to exceeding point totals, going 7-9 against the over.
Miami Dolphins Moneylines
At 10-6, Miami was a good play when betting a moneyline. Especially over the final three quarters of the year when it went 9-3. For odds as straightforward as these, the Dolphins were one of the better picks last year. Check out this example:
- Dolphins -120
- Patriots +210
The minus (-) and plus (+) signs distinguish the favorite from the underdog, making Miami the favorite in this scenario. Odds can be understood more clearly if you think in terms of $10 or $100 increments. A wager on the Dolphins odds would mean every $120 bet nets $100. And it's the opposite for underdogs: Here the Patriots moneyline was set at +210, meaning a $100 wager would profit $210.
Moneylines are also commonly used when making parlays, which are multiple bets tied into one. Let’s say you bet the Dolphins moneyline and a -2.5 point spread, Miami would need to win by three points or more for that bet to be successful. The risk is greater, but so is the reward with increased odds.

Player props are wagers on a single player, and they're tied to a single stat found in the box score for a game or even the whole season. These are among the most fun to bet on, especially if you're already playing fantasy football and like the player-specific focus it offers. Check out a hypothetical example below:
- Tua Tagovailoa 2021 passing yards: 3800.5
Miami Dolphins Futures

- Miami Dolphins odds to win the AFC East
- Miami Dolphins odds to win the AFC
- Miami Dolphins odds to win the Super Bowl
- Tua Tagovailoa’s odds to win Offensive Player of the Year
