49ers vs. Dolphins

Hard Rock Stadium, Miami, FL

Point Spread Value

San Francisco 49ers are done for the season with a 1-9-0 SU and 2-8-0 ATS mark, underscored by a -10.9 losing margin and a -4.4 differential versus the spread. Most recently, they are coming off a 30-17 loss to the New England Patriots and failing to cover as the +10.5 home underdogs. Still, Kaepernick is showing some positive signs and there are those NFL bettors that would hang their hat on that aspect, particularly in a matchup with the Miami Dolphins. Granted the Fins are surprisingly on the up behind a five-game winning streak. It would be churlish to dismiss this run of form now. Still, the Dolphins aren't exactly blowing opponents off the field and the current spread seems way too high. Miami is 6-4-0 ATS with a 0.2 winning margin and +2.5 differential versus the spread.

The Survivor

The Miami Dolphins are riding the momentum of a five-game winning streak into week 12 NFL betting. How can NFL bettors look beyond the Fins on their week 12 NFL picks? San Francisco hardly strike a convincing pose behind a nine-game losing streak, the worst run of active form in the league after the Cleveland Browns. That said, the Niners could win. They are showing a bit of a pulse, but is it enough to chance the upset NFL pick here? Probably not.

Game Totals

The Dolphins aren't exactly firing at all cylinders but they're getting the job done on both sides of the ball. Offense is contributing 21.8 points per game while defense is allowing 21.6 points per game. Overall, the Dolphins are 6-4-0 in O/U betting. By the stats, the Niners strike a woeful pose. Offense is contributing 20.4 points per game while defense is allowing a staggering 31.3 points per game. Niners are 6-4-0 in O/U betting but for the wrong reasons (ahem porous defense). If the Niners defense continues on this poor vein of form, Ryan Tannehill could have a field day.
