It’s funny how everyone went from on the Miami bandwagon as a team that could crack the playoffs this year if QB Ryan Tannehill plays well to a team that might go 0-16. The truth of the matter is that the end result will certainly be somewhere in the middle. This is a six-win club to us, and this is one of those wins. It all just looks bad for Raider Nation. Their team played a late Monday Night Football game last week on the West Coast, and they looked pretty bad in doing so. The Raiders lost the game, and now, they have to come all the way to the east on a short week to take on a team that is going to be hungry to be back at home. Worse for the Raiders is that they are getting almost 70% of the public betting action over at Covers, and that’s normally a bad, bad sign, especially when you’re considering the fact that the NFL pointspread for this game just isn’t going anywhere. West Coast teams have a terrible time playing on the East Coast, especially when they are hyped up as short favorites against bad teams.
Raiders @ Dolphins Pick: Miami Dolphins +2.5
Raiders @ Dolphins Score Prediction: Miami 20 – Oakland 16
