Though neither of these teams are playing well right now, it might come as a bit of a shock about who will be laying points in this game. Since when do the Raiders lay points on the road to a team with a better 2017 record? That is the case on Sunday night.
According to OddsShark, the Raiders will be laying three points on the road to the hometown Dolphins. The associated moneylines for this game are Oakland -160 and Miami +157. This game’s over/under comes in at a combined 44.5 points.
Point Spread: Oakland -3
Moneylines: Oakland -160, Miami +157
This line might have more to do with how bad the Dolphins offense is struggling than anything. Miami rarely scores more than 20 points in a game. The Dolphins were just shut out by the Ravens last week, 40-0. That blowout loss seems to be very much in the minds of the fine folks in Las Vegas.
Though Oakland can definitely win this game, this one feels like a stay away. Do you really trust the Raiders to lay three points and win on the road in a primetime spot? Exactly. The under might be the better play since Miami has struggled so mightily on offense this year.
