New England Patriots vs. Miami Dolphins point spread at -1

 NFL Week 12 is underway and today we will take a quick look at the point spread and betting odds offered on the New England Patriots vs. Miami Dolphins game. If someone told me last year that the Dolphins (6-4) will have the same record as the Patriots (6-4) or vice versa, I would have laughed. And if that same person told me that the Miami Dolphins will beat the New England Patriots, I would have been making calls to the nearest mental institution, trying to commit that guy. But that's football for you - the Dolphins already whopped the Patriots 38-13 in September and will meet again tonight to give it one more shot.

 So what do the odds makers think of the Patriots vs. Dolphins matchup on Sunday? Well, the sportsbook Bookmaker still has New England as favorite to win the game, although barely, at -115, while the odds on Miami to repeat their success from earlier this year are at -105. The New England Patriots vs. Miami Dolphins point spread is currently at only -1 point chalk the Patriots with the total expected by the odds makers with the sportsbook at 50 points. With such a large total and small point spread, it's obvious the odds makers are looking forward to an all-out battle between the Patriots and the Dolphins, bettors, however, tend to disagree. The Patriots vs. Dolphins game is the most bet on even with Bookmaker, the vast majority betting on the Patriots covering the spread tonight.

 Keep in mind that New England is 5-11 against the spread in its last 16 games and the total has gone UNDER in 4 of New England's last 6 games when playing on the road against Miami. The Dolphins, however, are 7-3 against the spread in their last 10 games when playing at home against Patriots. Also, Miami has won 14 of the last 19 games when playing at home against New England.
