Miami Dolphins Vs. Jacksonville Jaguars Odds

  • Spread: Dolphins -3.0
  • O/U 47.5

Miami Dolphins Betting Stats

The Dolphins are 2-3 ATS, and have an O/U record of 3-2 - they may be bad, but they’re competitive most of the time.

They opened as a -3.0 favorite over the Jaguars, and they have a 29-23 straight-up record over the entire history of their franchise as a three-point favorite.

They ended last season hitting two OVERS, which gives them five OVERS hit out of their last seven games played.

The OVER has hit in the last six games the Dolphins have played on turf, which they will be doing in London.

Jacksonville Jaguars Betting Stats

The Jaguars also seem keen to hit OVERS on turf, with a clean 8-0 OVER hit rate in their last eight games.

The Jags are 2-3 in terms of hitting OVERs so far this season and have only covered the spread in one of their four games.

All-time, they’re 15-31 in straight-up games in which they are three-point underdogs, winning less than a third of such games.

Combined, the two teams have a 5-5 O/U hit rate and this O/U is pretty low at 47.5 - but both teams have performed poorly in terms of offensive production this season.

Jags And Dolphins Scoring Numbers

Miami is 31st among NFL teams in terms of points scored per game, with an average of 15.8, while Jacksonville is 27th, at 18.6.

Combined, these two teams are averaging 34.4 points per game, well below the 47.5 O/U line.

Note that Dolphins QB Tua Tagovailoa may be returning from injury for this game, taking over for backup Jacoby Brissett. Tagovailoa was injured in the second game of the season.

However, both teams have atrocious defenses as well, ranking at 29th and 30th in terms of points allowed per game.

The Dolphins let up 30.8 points per game, while the Jags let in 30.4 points per game, so the two teams combine to give up 61.2 points per game.

In other words, something’s going to give in this game - these two teams have bottom-six offenses and defenses, and one of either the offenses or the defenses is going to perform above their seasonal averages in this game.

The game kicks off at 9:30 a.m. EST on Sunday and will be broadcast on CBS, the NFL Network, and Paramount Plus.
