Jordan Poyer leads the Buffalo Bills with 66 tackles, Jordan Phillips has six sacks and Tre'Davious White has three interceptions.
The Miami Dolphins have a chance to win three straight games for the first time since September last year. The Miami Dolphins have lost four of their last five home games. Ryan Fitzpatrick is completing 61.5 percent of his passes for 1,364 yards, eight touchdowns and eight interceptions. Josh Rosen and Fitzpatrick has have combined for nine touchdowns and 13 interceptions this season. DeVante Parker and Preston Williams have combined for 897 receiving yards and seven touchdowns while Mike Gesicki has 24 receptions.

The Bills are 4-0-1 ATS in their last 5 road games, 4-1 ATS in their last 5 vs. AFC East and 7-3-1 ATS in their last 11 games overall. The Dolphins are 4-0 ATS in their last 4 vs. AFC, 5-2 ATS in their last 7 vs. AFC East and 5-0 ATS in their last 5 games overall. The favorite is 4-1 ATS in their last 5 meetings and the over is 7-2 in the last 9 meetings. The under is 6-2 in Dolphins last 8 games overall. The under is 7-2 in Bills last 9 games overall.
The Buffalo Bills are 3-5 ATS in their last eight games as a road favorite. The Miami Dolphins are 5-5 ATS in their last 10 games as a home underdog. The Buffalo Bills have lost two of their four games since their bye week and continue to have doubters given the heavy home schedule and the lack of quality opponents they've beaten. The Miami Dolphins went from being the clear frontrunners to get the top pick in the draft to winning back-to-back games and having a little pep in their step coming back home. I'm not a big believer in the Buffalo Bills, and the Miami Dolphins appear to be trying to win games now. You have to love the points in this spot, and I'll probably be on the ML as well come kickoff.
