Our picks, best bets
Pick against the spread: Patriots -2.5
Without Tua Tagovailoa, the Dolphins are in trouble. Tua has had his struggles, but still puts the team in a better situation than Teddy Bridgewater. The Dolphins are coming off a terrible performance against the Packers and things will only get tougher this week. This should be a defensive game and the Dolphins don't bode well if that’s the case.
Over/under: Under 41
Like I said above, I think this is a defensive game. The Patriots offense has been stagnant at times this season while the Dolphins are taking a big step back with Bridgewater at quarterback. This game will also be freezing which is not good for the Dolphins. Look for a low scoring Patriots win.
Player prop: Tyreek Hill Anytime Touchdown (+130)
I don’t expect the Dolphins to do a ton offensively, but Hill to score a touchdown at plus money is a steal. As he’s one of the best wide receivers in the NFL, I would expect Bridgewater to target him a ton. The Dolphins will get creative with the play calling and I think he’ll find himself in the end zone for one of the Dolphins only touchdowns.
