Baltimore vs. Miami, 09/08/2019 13:00 EDT, Score: 59 - 10

Point Spread: +7/-110 Miami

Sportsbook: Bodog

Result: Loss

This is a 5* play on the Miami Dolphins (Week 1).

The Dolphins are already the laughing stock of the league, and we haven't even played a game yet. It's not easy to make a case for why the Dolphins will be anything other than awful in 2019, so instead I will focus on Baltimore. They come into this Week 1 matchup asked to cover a bunch of points on the road, and I just don't think this Ravens team is going to live up to all the hype. Lamar Jackson came in and sparked the team to a 6-1 finish in the final seven games of 2018. Only one of those wins came against a team with a winning record, and wins over Cleveland and Cincinnati came by three points or less. Ryan Fitzpatrick threw for 400+ yards in each of his first three starts for Tampa last year, winning two of those games and losing by just three points to Pittsburgh. Fitzpatrick played in eight games for the Bucs last year, and they lost by more than seven points in just three of those games. So while the Ravens may be the better team, I am not sure they are seven points better, especially on the road in Miami.

Take MIA.
