The favorite has covered the spread in 9 of the last 13 meetings between the New England Patriots and the Miami Dolphins. Typically, the Miami Dolphins have played their divisional rival tough at home, but I can’t back a team that is coming off a 49-point loss especially since they have already lost the clubhouse. The Patriots had a dominating performance against one of the better teams in the AFC as they destroyed the Steelers on both sides of the ball. Lamar Jackson threw the ball all over the Miami secondary, but Tom Brady is a whole new problem for one of the worst teams in the NFL. Final Score Prediction, New England Patriots win and cover ATS 38-7.
