Eagles vs Dolphins Prediction & Pick
Both teams are coming off close games in Week 2, with the Eagles winning by one point and the Dolphins losing by two. As such, this matchup has the makings of a nailbiter.
It's worth noting that Miami has played the harder schedule thus far. Both of the Dolphins' opponents made the playoffs last year, while neither of the Eagles' foes did.
Given the quality of competition they've faced so far, the Fins should be able to outlast the Eagles at home.

This game looks like a toss-up based on how both teams have played this preseason and in the recent past. The Dolphins seem to have the slight edge, but not enough to justify the juice on their moneyline. And with the spread currently set at 3.5 points, the Eagles could easily backdoor cover if they lose by only a field goal.
Accordingly, betting on the total seems like the safer move. Neither defense is exceptional and Miami has more firepower after trading for Tyreek Hill in the offseason, so this game should feature a healthy number of points. The total of 38 feels a bit low, so the over appears to be the correct call here.
