Miami Dolphins Player Stats
The Miami Dolphins made a big leap from 2019 to 2020, doubling their wins from five to 10. They ultimately fell short in Week 17, missing the playoffs, but excitement is brewing down in Miami thanks to second-year QB Tua Tagovailoa and his squad.
Oddsmakers are expecting a good season as well, as the Dolphins are pegged for just short of 10 wins and should be firmly in the playoff hunt. See all of the Dolphins above, as well as their full regular season schedule, against-the-spread (ATS) record, depth charts, and more.
Miami Dolphins Point Spreads
The two best teams against-the-spread last year both came from the AFC East, as the Dolphins and Bills both covered 11 of their 16 regular season games. A spread bet, if you're unfamiliar, is a wager on the margin of victory or loss of a game. If you bet on the team most likely to win, you'll need them not just to win the game outright, but win it by enough points to cash your bet.
Here’s a brief example of a spread for a Dolphins game:
- Dolphins -2.5 (-110)
- Patriots +2.5 (-110)
The Dolphins in this example are favorites in the betting market, and you can tell by the minus sign (-); underdogs are noted with a plus sign (+). If you see the Dolphins at a sportsbook at -2.5, that just means to win that bet, Miami would have to beat the by three points or more. Every point matters in spread bets: Even if the Dolphins won, but the game finished at 21-20, for example, that -2.5 spread bet would be graded a loss.
Over/under, or total, bets are wagers on how many points will be scored by both teams. Which team wins doesn't matter; in fact, the final score could be 80-0, and an over bet could still win.
Say the Dolphins faced the and the over/under was set at 37 points by a sportsbook. In that situation, an over bet would make you money if the teams combined for 38 or more points, whereas the under would cash if it was low-scoring and finished at 36 or fewer. These bets could also on whole numbers: Both sides would get refunded if the total finished at exactly 37 points.
Miami Dolphins Moneylines
Spread bets can be tough, as every point matters. Moneylines can be sometimes easier to grasp, as the margin of victory doesn't come into play: It's just a wager on which team will emerge victorious.
The odds are easier to understand if you read them like increments of $10 or $100. Say the Dolphins are -155 favorites against the Patriots: If you bet on the Dolphins, you'd bet $15.50 to win $10, or $155 to win $100. If Miami beat New England, you would win that bet. In contrast, if the Dolphins were +155 underdogs, you could bet $10 and win $15.50, or bet $100 and win $155.
If you want to make things even more simple, you can bet on just a single player rather than worrying about the performance of an entire team. Those are called player prop bets, and they're tied to a box score stat of just one player.
Some Dolphins props this season could include Tua to throw over/under a certain amount of passing yards or Will Fuller to catch a certain amount of passes.
Miami Dolphins Futures
Will the Dolphins get back to the playoffs this year? Can they upset the mighty Bills to take home the AFC East crown?
You can bet on those outcomes, too, and those wager types are called futures bets. They're just bets on end-of-season outcomes rather than a single game. Some other Dolphins include Tua to win MVP or even the Dolphins to win the Super Bowl.
