As the biggest underdogs on the NFL odds board, the Dolphins are practically written out of the playoffs. Does the market have it right?  Find out as we spot choice NFL picks.

  Miami Dolphins vs Pittsburgh Steelers

 

Point Spread Value

The Dolphins are practically written off. With most sportsbooks hanging the matchup between the Dolphins and Steelers on Sunday’s wildcard betting slate on a double-digit spread, it would be a major upset if the Dolphins were to come through against the NFL odds. Indeed, without Ryan Tannehill, the Dolphins chances look rather slim. Consider the way in which the Patriots blew Matt Moore and the Dolphins off the field in week 17 to cover as the hefty road favorites in a big way. One has to think Big Ben and the firepower contained in the Steelers’ camp can do much of the same at Heinz Field.

 The Survivor

On paper, this looks to be the most straightforward NFL pick in the wildcard round. The Steelers are that much better than the Dolphins and with home advantage, on their side, this could be a tough day for Matt Moore and the Dolphins. Put it this way, color the world shocked if the Dolphins mastermind the upset in Pittsburgh.

Game Total

The Dolphins struggled on the offensive side of the ball in week 17 in a 35-14 loss to the Patriots at home. It was a game in which Matt Moore subbed for the injured Ryan Tannehill and gives NFL bettors a glimpse of what to potentially expect in this wildcard matchup. More likely than not the second-string quarterback will lead the Fins. Equally, so, it’s hard to see Moore rip apart the stout Steelers defense to rack up the points.
