Expectations are brutally low for the Miami Dolphins in 2019. The Fish boast the lowest win total coming into the season at 4.5 games and began their fire sale at the end of training camp by dealing Laremy Tunsil and Kenny Stills to the Texans.
Now Miami will open its season as a 6.5-point home underdog.

Ravens vs. Dolphins Betting Guide, Picks
Our analysts and experts break down the most important angles of this game.
Here’s an excerpt, but you can read the full piece here.
In the offseason, the Ravens promoted dual-threat run-game aficionado Greg Roman to offensive coordinator, and head coach John Harbaugh has said that the team will remain committed to the running game this year.
And that spells trouble for the Dolphins, who are not just tanking — they’re also rebuilding, especially on defense, which means that right now they’re in the process of tearing it down.
Gone from last year’s front seven are edge defenders Cameron Wake and Robert Quinn, tackle Akeem Spence and linebacker Kiko Alonso.
I don’t know who’s starting in their place. I don’t even know if the Dolphins know.
