The favorite is 3-1-1 ATS in the last 5 meetings between these two teams.
There’s no amount of money I could be given to bet this game, heck I wouldn’t even bet it with your money. I mean lets be real, tickets to the Miami Zoo are more expensive than some tickets to this game. But we’re here to give picks and even with this dumpster fire of a matchup, that’s not going to change. Miami getting points at home could be worth a look, but the only time the Dolphins showed some fight was in the first half against Dallas, and that’s when things fell apart as usual, as the Dolphins have been outscored more in the 2nd half than any team has been outscored overall this season, including Washington’s -78 point differential this entire season. Washington doesn’t have much going for them either, especially on the road, but they have more experience and more talent on both sides of the ball and should be able to win this one by at least 4-6 points but again, if you feel the need to bet this game, we need to have a serious discussion.
