The Line: Miami Dolphins +10 -- Over/Under: 45
The Philadelphia Eagles and Miami Dolphins meet Sunday in NFL action at Hard Rock Stadium.
The Philadelphia Eagles need a win to get back to a .500 record and stay in the NFC East race. The Philadelphia Eagles have lost three of their last five road games. Carson Wentz is completing 62.6 percent of his passes for 2,530 yards, 17 touchdowns and six interceptions. Wentz has two or more touchdown passes in 12 of his last 21 games. Zach Ertz and Alshon Jeffery have combined for 1,065 receiving yards and six touchdowns while Miles Sanders has 27 receptions. The Philadelphia Eagles ground game is averaging 121.2 yards per contest, and Josh Howard leads the way with 525 yards and six touchdowns. Defensively, Philadelphia is allowing 22.5 points and 325.7 yards per game. Rodney McLeod leads the Philadelphia Eagles with 56 tackles, Brandon Graham has 7.5 sacks and Nathan Gerry has two interceptions.
The Miami Dolphins look to play spoiler after splitting their last four games. The Miami Dolphins have lost five of their last six home games. Ryan Fitzpatrick is completing 62 percent of his passes for 1,901 yards, 10 touchdowns and 10 interceptions. Josh Rosen and Fitzpatrick has have combined for 11 touchdowns and 15 interceptions this season. DeVante Parker and Preston Williams have combined for 1,123 receiving yards and seven touchdowns while Mike Gesicki has 31 receptions. The Miami Dolphins ground game is averaging 63.2 yards per contest, and Mark Walton leads the way with 201 yards on 53 carries. Defensively, Miami is allowing 31.5 points and 400.9 yards per game. Jerome Baker leads the Miami Dolphins with 82 tackles, Taco Charlton has four sacks and Bobby McCain has two interceptions.
The Eagles are 16-6 ATS in their last 22 games in Week 13, 2-5 ATS in their last 7 games following a ATS loss and 4-1 ATS in their last 5 games in December. The Dolphins are 2-5 ATS in their last 7 home games, 2-6 ATS in their last 8 games in December and 5-2 ATS in their last 7 games overall. The Eagles are 5-1 ATS in their last 6 meetings and the underdog is 4-1 ATS in their last 5 meetings. The under is 4-1 in Dolphins last 5 games following a ATS loss. The under is 4-1 in Eagles last 5 games overall.
The Philadelphia Eagles are 5-2 ATS in their last seven games as a double-digit favorite. The Miami Dolphins are 3-6 ATS in their last nine games as a double-digit underdog. The Philadelphia Eagles have scored a combined 19 points in their last two games and have been held to 10 or less points in three of their last five games. The Eagles are banged up on that side of the ball and Wentz looks lost most of the time. The Miami Dolphins obviously aren't winning and have no reason to, but they continue to play hard, compete and have still covered five of their last seven games. I can't lay big numbers with the Eagles in their current form and with their injuries. It's Fins or pass for me.
