New Orleans Saints vs Miami Dolphins NFL Predictions, NFL Odds & NFL Picks: The undefeated Saints are in Miami today to take on the suddenly resurgent Dolphins at Land Shark Stadium. Kickoff in this NFC South versus AFC East match up is set for 4:05pm ET on CBS. NFL Predictions at Sportsbetting.com have Miami listed as a +6 against the spread home underdog.
Saints Breakdown: If anyone was still questioning the Saints legitimacy, New Orleans quieted them last weekend with a statement win over the Giants at the Superdome. Drew Brees and company blasted New York 48-27 to move to 5-0 (5-0 against the spread) and establish themselves as the team to beat in the NFC. The Saints offense and defense are both hitting on all cylinders this season as evidenced by the numbers the two units have posted thus far. New Orleans is averaging 38.4 points and 430 yards per game while giving up just 18.6 and 301.2 per contest.
"It makes us a lot better by going against our offense in practice," Safety Darren Sharper said. "It makes us both better because you have the top offense in the league going against one of the better defenses."
Dolphins Breakdown: Miami got itself back in the AFC East race two weekends ago with a big Monday night win over the New York Jets at Land Shark Stadium. The 31-27 victory was the Dolphins second in a row and somewhat erased the sour taste of the club's 0-3 start. A setback today against the Saints would hurt, but it would not be devastating if they can win next weekend against the Jets in New York. However, despite New Orleans prowess, Miami should not be counted out of today's game. Yes, their secondary is suspect, which is a really bad problem to have against the Saints, but their ability to run the ball as well as stop the run could keep them in this contest.
NFL Predictions Betting Trend: New Orleans is 4-1 straight up and against the spread in their last five games as a road favorite with a spread between 4 and 7.5 and a total between 47.5 and 51. The Under is 5-0 in those contests.
New Orleans Saints -6 (-115), Over 47.5 (-110), -270 (Moneyline)
Miami Dolphins +6 (-105), Under 47.5 (-110), +230 (Moneyline)
