Jaguars open as 5-point underdogs to Dolphins

New, comments

A convincing win over the Browns hasn't dissuaded Vegas from making the Jaguars underdogs against the Dolphins at home.

The Jacksonville Jaguars will host the Miami Dolphins and even with a dominating win over the Cleveland Browns, the team is still pegged as an underdog.

According to OddsShark.com, the Jaguars opened as a 5-point underdog with an over/under at 43.0 points. According to Ryan O'Halloran of the Florida Times-Union, the team was a 4.5-point underdog elsewhere.

Miami is admittedly a better team than Cleveland, although they've been inconsistent all year. They started out their season by beating the New England Patriots and then followed that up with a loss to the Buffalo Bills. I think they finally have some things figured out with their passing game, and Ryan Tannehill should pose more of a threat than Brian Hoyer did.

If OddsShark is correct, the Dolphins will win on Sunday by a score of 24-19.
