Dolphins prop bets
Prop bets are based on individual performance, typically surrounding players. Against the Jets this past season, Myles Gaskin had a projected rushing total of 66.5 yards. Those who expected Gaskin to usurp 67 yards would take the over while those who thought Gaskin would rush for 66 or less yards would bet the under. In that game, Gaskin piled up 91 rushing yards, awarding those who bet the over a win.

How to bet on the Miami Dolphins
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.
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 2021 recap
Record: 9-8, Third in AFC East
Record ATS: 9-7-1
Over/under record: 7-10
After starting 1-7, the Dolphins won seven straight games (albeit, against no teams with a winning record). They capped off their season in the playoff hunt and with a resounding win over the Patriots– sweeping them for the first time since Bill Belichick took over. However, they moved on from head coach Brian Flores in a move that was rumored to be about him not seeing eye-to-eye with management. Tua Tagovailoa took a massive step forward, ranking near the top of the NFL in completion percentage. His teammate, rookie Jaylen Waddle, set the all-time rookie record for receptions in a season.
