Our Selection : It’s difficult to get a feel for the mindset of either team here and we believe that will be the key to this game.
The Bucs exploded for 205 yards on the ground versus the Seahawks and may have success Monday night vs. the Dolphins run defense that has allowed 315 yards on the ground in their last 2 games. Likewise for the Dolphins’ running game which has looked strong in recent games and will face the Bucs’ run D that has allowed 327 rushing yards in their last two contests.
That being said, both teams did benefit from turnovers to get into the 20 point range. We do know that both QB’s can be turnover prone and that unless this game starts getting out of reach for a team the play calling should be very conservative.
Take the UNDER 41 at 5Dimes and get reduced juice on every play.
