How to bet on the Miami Dolphins

Moneyline

The moneyline is the simplest of bets, decided by the straight-up winner and loser of each game. Consider the following example:

  • Dolphins +185
  • Saints -140

The Dolphins are considered underdogs in this matchup (indicated by +185), with a total payout of $285 on a $100 bet ($185 in winnings plus the initial $100 bet back). The Saints are the favorite in this matchup, with bettors needing to wager $140 to win $100 (plus their initial $100 bet back). How much either team wins or loses by does not matter in moneyline betting, the payout remains the same.

Point spread

Betting on the point spread is determinant on how many points a team wins or loses by. Take the following example:

  • Dolphins -4.5 (-110)
  • Ravens +4.5 (-110)

In this example, Miami is favored by 4.5 points, indicated by “-4.5.” If the Dolphins win the game 30-25, the Dolphins (-4.5) win the bet and would have a total payout of $19.09 on a $10 bet ($9.09 in profit). If the Ravens keep the game within five and lose 24-20, the Ravens (+4.5) would win, and the payout would be the same as listed above.

Point total (over/under)

The point total refers to the over/under line set by books. This number projects the total number of points scored in a game and, like prop betting, is bet whether one thinks the score will go over or under the set point total. For example, a Dolphins matchup with the San Francisco 49ers had a projected point total of 48.5 points. The Dolphins won that game 43-17, resulting in 60 points scored. Those who bet the over on the game cashed out.

With a strong defense that forced lots of turnovers, the Dolphins had a lower expected point total for most of their games. Their offense also struggled to move the ball at times, resulting in point totals that commonly fell between 45 and 51 points.

In-play and live betting

Sometimes, the most thrilling and rewarding bets are bets made while games are being played. These are referred to as live bets or in-play bets. Odds are ever-changing during games, which would prove to be fruitful for sharp and prepared bettors. For example, if the Dolphins (-225) were heavily favored against the Jaguars (+190) before kickoff, a payout on a $10 bet on the Dolphins to win would win just $4.44.

However, say the Dolphins fell to a big 20-3 deficit in the first half despite controlling the overall game (due to costly turnovers or special teams gaffes). Odds may swing in favor of the Jaguars, who may be a -110 favorite at halftime. Taking the Dolphins to come back and win the game could present plus-odds (say, +130). Should a bettor take Miami (+130) at halftime and the Dolphins pull off the comeback, winners would win $13 instead of $4.44 (plus the initial $10 bet).

This could also be an effective way to “hedge” your bet; say a bettor took the Jaguars (+190) in that game, but Miami jumps out to a 17-0 first quarter lead and is controlling the overall feel of the game, bettors could hedge by throwing some money down on Miami (-270) to return some of the inevitably-lost bet.

Parlays and teasers

You can always string bets together in the form of parlays or teasers. Usually during busy Sundays, bettors can parlay several teams to win or cover against the spread and if all bets are successful, the payouts are multiplied. Teasers function similarly, except they allow bettors to move each point spread to a more favorable line in exchange for diminished odds.

Dolphins 2020 recap

Record: 10-6

Record ATS: 11-5

Over/under record: 7-9

Despite an expanded playoff field, the Dolphins missed out on a playoff berth while going 10-6. It was a tough pill to swallow, but Miami had an overall successful year and led Brian Flores to be heavily considered for the Coach of the Year award. They became one of just two teams since 2000 to miss the playoffs with a 10-6 mark. The Dolphins’ defense carried the team, led by Xavien Howard, and finished fourth in points allowed per game in 2020.

Expectations in Miami were low despite the Fins securing their franchise-quarterback hopeful in Tua Tagovailoa. With the Dolphins routinely winning games, they picked up the best record against the spread in the NFL (tied with the Bills). However, their offense’s inability to move the ball at times (especially through the air) resulted in a sub-0.500 mark against the point total.
