The Houston Texans (1-8-1) takes their abilities to South Seaside to tackle the Miami Dolphins (7-3) Sunday at 1 p.m. ET (CBS). Under, we analyze Tipico Sportsbook‘s strains across the Texans vs. Dolphins odds, and make our professional NFL picks and predictions.
After a 23-10 loss Sunday to the Washington Commanders as 3-point underdogs, coach Lovie Smith was non-committal about QB Davis Mills and if he would proceed to begin for the Texans. With Houston firmly in charge of the No. 1 draft decide in 2023, it seems to be just like the workforce could also be prepared to pick out one other sign caller. With Miami main the AFC East and Tua Tagovailoa enjoying impressed soccer beneath coach Mike McDaniels, this seems to be like one other sport the Texans will lose on their method to the draft.
The Dolphins commerce for Tyreek Hill has certainly introduced out the most effective of Tua, who has taken a step up in his accuracy and his command of the workforce whereas Hill leads the league in receptions (81) and receiving yards (1,148). The addition of DE Bradley Chubb from Denver on the commerce deadline has helped the protection turn out to be a greater unit in addition to they attempt to maintain off the Buffalo Payments within the division race.

With the unfold being so excessive, the ML can be too excessive to wish to make a wager on. Keep away from this wager and as a substitute make a play on the unfold or the entire.
BET DOLPHINS -14 (-111).
Coming off a bye week, the Dolphins will feast on the Texans.
Even when Mostert should sit, the addition of RB Jeff Wilson from the San Francisco 49ers because the commerce deadline has the run sport of Miami in strong palms.
Hill, already with 1,148 receiving yards, is seeking to turn out to be the primary 2,000-yard receiver in NFL historical past. Whereas it won’t occur this week, he may get a bunch towards a horrible Houston protection which is now enjoying with out its solely star in rookie CB Stingley.
The Texans will wilt within the scorching Miami solar and the Dolphins will win this sport simply. Take the Dolphins -14 (-111) as my favourite play.
BET UNDER 47 (-114).
The Dolphins can rating. However for this sport to get Over 47, the Dolphins might want to hit 40. This isn’t a given in any NFL sport and I’m hesitant to guess on it on this one.
Coming off the bye, Miami will come out robust after which cruise to the top. If Houton can get this sport Over, will probably be with garbage-time factors. However I don’t assume the Texans are ok to even get garbage-time factors. Their solely supply of offense is RB Dameon Pierce and after being shut down Sunday by Washington, Miami and Chubb will try to do the identical this Sunday. Take the Beneath 47 (-114).
