The Patriots kicked off their 2021 season with a loss at Miami, but they’ll look for a better opening result in this year’s season opener. Mac Jones returns at quarterback for his second season, while DeVante Parker will make his New England debut against his former team, having spent his entire career with the Dolphins before being traded earlier this year.
Expectations are up for the Dolphins this year as they’ll debut their new-look offense, which includes the additions of Tyreek Hill, Cedrick Wilson Jr., and Terron Armstead. Mike McDaniel will look for a win in his head coaching debut after Brian Flores was let go earlier this year after three seasons at the helm.
The Dolphins come in as 3-point favorites over the Pats, according to DraftKings Sportsbook. Miami is priced at -165 on the moneyline while New England sits at +140. The total for this game is set at 46 ahead of the Week 1 clash.
