Betting Preview for the Miami Dolphins vs Buffalo Bills Regular Season Week 8 Game on October 31, 2021
Where: Highmark Stadium, Orchard Park
When: Sunday, October 31, 2021, 1:00 PM ET
TV Broadcast: CBS
Betting on the Miami Dolphins (+13.5)
Regular Season Record: 1-6
The Dolphins are still searching for their way out of a long, dark tunnel. They are 0-6 straight up in all their games since Week 1’s 17-16 road win over the New England Patriots. That victory in Foxborough feels like from a very distant past now for the Dolphins, who lost to the Atlanta Falcons in Week 7 at home, 30-28. However, Tua Tagovailoa was able to put up arguably his best game in a Miami uniform. He finished with 291 passing yards and four t0uchdowns on 32/40 completions. He also had two interceptions, so that’s something he’ll have to clean up. Buffalo’s defense is surely going to make things hard for Tua, but if he could keep himself from throwing errant passes, then Miami’s offense could punch more than it did against Atlanta. Tight end Mike Gesicki will look to build on his nice performance in the loss to Atlanta wherein he had 85 receiving yards and a touchdown on seven catches. Wide receiver DeVante Parker could also be coming back in Week 8 after weeks of absence due to injury.
The Dolphins are 5-5 against the spread in their last 10 road games.
Betting on the Buffalo Bills (-13.5)
Regular Season Record: 4-2
The Bills can’t wait to get back on the field. Before their Week 7 bye, the Bills got stunned by the Tennessee Titans on the road in a 34-31 loss in Week 6. That left a bitter taste in the mouth of Josh Allen and company. Buffalo won four games in a row prior to that loss to Tennessee. The Bills will have a favorable game in their return to action, as they will be dealing with a Miami team that’s likely not going to make the playoffs. Coming off a bad loss, this Buffalo team’s focus must be set on the highest mode. There could be a repeat of the 40-0 walloping the Bills unleashed on the Houston Texans back in Week 4 in Buffalo. The Bills have the second-best scoring offense in the NFL, as they are averaging 33.8 points per game. Matt Ryan and the Falcons just torched Miami’s defense, which was expected to be good this season, for close to 400 total yards.
The Bills are 7-3 against the spread in their last 10 home games against Miami.
The Bills win, 33-17.
