Are we seeing the beginning of the end of the New England Patriots dynasty? After a 1-2 start to their season, it’s tempting to think that way, but we also know that it’s not a good idea to count out Bill Belichick and his men out this early in the 2018 NFL campaign. Will the Pats find their way back into the win column this Sunday? Or will the Dolphins sustain their undefeated record?

Betting on the Miami Dolphins (3-0)
Led by an efficient Ryan Tannehill, the Dolphins added another win to their season ledger last Sunday, as they took down the Oakland Raiders at home, 28-20. Tannehill passed for 289 yards and three touchdowns with zero interceptions on 17-of-23 passes. Tannehill also paced the team on the ground with 26 rushing yards on just three carries. Miami only had 41 rushing yards in that game, but so long as Tannehill is connecting with his receivers, the Dolphins are going to be fine. And that’s likely to continue in Foxboro against New England’s pathetic defense that is allowing over 400 total yards per game. Running backs Kenyan Drake and Frank Gore should find bigger gaps to burst through this coming Sunday, as the Pats are second worst in the NFL against the run. The Dolphins, who are averaging 25.0 points and 324.0 total yards per game, have covered the spread in each of their first three games of this season.
Betting on the New England Patriots (1-2)
It’s been 10 years since the Patriots last lost a game in Foxboro to Miami, but if they are going to play as listless as they were last Sunday against the Dolphins this time around, then it’s likely going to be a different story. The Patriots are 9-1 SU and 7-3 ATS in their last 10 games against Miami as the home team. New England suffered their second loss in a row last Sunday when they got beat by the Detroit Lions in Ford Field, 26-10. The energy was simply not there for the Patriots, who saw the red zone just twice in that game. Tom Brady only had 133 passing yards (14/26) with a touchdown and an interception while the team’s backfield coughed up only 89 yards. Hopefully for the Pats, a home game against a frequent punching bag will spark them. A possible debut of trade acquisition and talented wide receiver Josh Gordon could help add life to the suddenly struggling New England squad.
New England wins, 31-24.
