Patriots big point spread favorite against the Dolphins

For yet another NFL week the New England Patriots are crossing the 20 points against the spread, this time when meeting the Miami Dolphins.

Patriots big point spread favorite against the Dolphins Here we are in NFL Week 16 and the New England Patriots (14-0) continue to be unbeaten and will attempt to make it 15-0 when they meet the Miami Dolphins (1-13) on Sunday. Only miracle could turn this game against the Pats this weekend and most New England fans are already looking forward the final game against the Giants. And yet for one more time the Patriots get a spread over the 20-point mark. After beating the Dolphins 49-28 on October 21st, at the online bookmaker Bodog Sports the point spread on the Miami Dolphins vs. New England Patriots game is now sitting at -22 points chalk the Patriots with the total set at 45 points.

 Will the Pats be able to cover this enormous point spread on Sunday remains questionable, considering the 10-20 victory at home over the Jets last week, while the Dolphins finally got their first victory in the season against the Ravens last week. The last time New England covered such spread was on November 18th, against the Bills 56-10, for the total of five games this season won by the Pats by 22 points or more, and only one in their last six games. And while the Dolphins have lost every game prior to last week's, they have lost only one game by more than 20 points, on December 2nd against the NY Jets. At this point it is very unlikely that the Patriots will cover the 22-point spread, keep in mind that Miami is 2-3-2 against the spread in its last 7 games on the road and New England is 2-4 against the spread in its last 6 games.
