Miami Dolphins vs Carolina Panthers NFL Picks, NFL Odds & NFL Predictions: The Miami Dolphins will try to even their record at 5-5 tonight against a Panthers squad attempting to pull off the same feat. The two non-conference combatants are set to kickoff at 8:20pm ET at Bank of America Stadium in Charlotte, North Carolina; the game will be broadcast live on the NFL Network. NFL Picks at Sportsbetting.com have the Panthers listed as a -3 against the spread home favorite.
Miami improved to 4-5 last weekend with a narrow 25-23 win over the Tampa Bay Buccaneers at Land Shark Stadium. The victory, coupled with a Jets loss, moved the Dolphins into second place in the AFC East. Running backs Ronnie Brown and Ricky Williams helped prevent the lowly Bucs from recording their second straight win, combining for 32 carries, 184 yards, and a touchdown. Miami finished the game with 23 first downs and 374 total yards.
The Dolphins are just 1-3 away from home this season with losses coming at Atlanta, San Diego, and New England. Their lone road win came against the Jets in week five after Ted Ginn Jr. returned two kickoffs for touchdowns.
Carolina won for the fourth time in the last six games last Sunday, beating the Falcons 28-19 at Bank of America Stadium to improve to 4-5. The Panthers are still stuck in third place in the NFC South but are just a game behind Atlanta in the division standings. Like Miami, Carolina relied on a punishing ground game to get the win as DeAngelo Williams and Jonathan Stewart racked up 174 yards and two touchdowns on 30 carries.
The victory brought the Panthers home record to 2-2 where they are averaging 16.8 points and giving up an average of 23.5.
Game Notes: Ronnie Brown is expected to miss tonight's game after suffering an ankle injury against the Buccaneers, which should mean in increased workload for Williams. Pat White should serve as the Dolphins Wildcat quarterback with Brown out of the line up.
NFL Picks Betting Trend: Carolina is 5-1 against the spread and straight up in their last six games as a home favorite in the month of November with a spread between 0 and 3.5 (Over 5-1).
Miami Dolphins +3 (+105)
Carolina Panthers -3 (-125)
