Patriots vs Dolphins Opening Odds

According to FanDuel Sportsbook's NFL odds, the Dolphins are slated as 2.5-point home favorites over the visiting Patriots, with odds set at -110 for either team to cover the spread. Miami also holds -144 moneyline odds, while New England is +122 to pull off a small, but impactful upset.

There's no denying that the Dolphins have had the Patriots number lately, winning four of their last five head-to-head matchups against them. Miami constantly forced New England to kick field goals in 2021 and averaged 4.1 yards per carry on offense across two meaningful divisional victories.

The Patriots head into the fall looking to replicate the success of young QB Mac Jones and keep playing fundamental football. Meanwhile, the Dolphins are hoping the addition of All-Pro wide receiver Tyreek Hill will transform their passing attack.

A look at the Super Bowl odds shows just how much of a toss up this Week 1 game could be. FanDuel Sportsbook has both the Patriots and Dolphins slated at +4000 odds (T-No. 17) to win Super Bowl LVII in February. They also both have odds set at +400 to win the AFC East.
