Miami Dolphins at Kansas City Chiefs

The Dolphins opened as 3.5-point road underdogs for their AFC Wild Card matchup against the Chiefs. The game has a projected total of 43.5 points.

The Dolphins have a rising avalanche of adversity heading into Saturday night’s showdown with the Chiefs, with everything from the element to injuries threatening to facilitate a one-and-done scenario for a squad once thought to be a top Super Bowl contender.

The weather in Kansas City for Saturday night now projects to be the coldest in Miami’s franchise history and will likely feature wind chill nearing -20 degrees. Tua Tagovailoa has a forgettable track record in cold weather, and although top target Tyreek Hill is certainly familiar with playing in a frigid Arrowhead Stadium, even he may have become a lot more warm-blooded since his move to South Florida nearly two years ago.

Meanwhile, both Raheem Mostert and Jaylen Waddle, who each missed the last two games of the regular season due to ankle injuries, appear to be on track to play, per Mike McDaniel’s late-week statements following Thursday’s practice. Both players put in limited sessions throughout the week, but how healthy they’ll truly be and how the extremely cold weather affects their aching joints remains to be seen.

The biggest personnel concerns for Miami are on the defensive side of the ball, however, Not only did Jerome Baker and Andrew Van Ginkel add to the list of defensive players with season-ending injuries when they both went down in Week 18 with wrist and foot issues, respectively, but both starting safeties Jevon Holland and DeShon Elliott are questionable, while Xavien Howard is already ruled out with a foot injury.

While the frigid temperatures may slow down even Patrick Mahomes somewhat, Miami shapes up as particularly poorly equipped to handle Travis Kelce in particular with such a thin/hurting group at both linebacker and safety.

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 on 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.

Futures

Futures are long-term bets that can range from an offseason to a full season (or beyond). Team win totals, award winners, and player performance are common futures.
