Tom Brady used to victimize the Miami Dolphins regularly back during his days with the New England Patriots. He gets another chance to beat the Fins again, as the Bucs host Miami on Sunday. Check out our preview of this game below.
Betting Preview for the Miami Dolphins vs Tampa Bay Buccaneers Regular Season Week 5 Game on October 10, 2021
Where: Raymond James Stadium, Tampa

TV Broadcast: CBS
Betting on the Miami Dolphins (+10.5)
Regular Season Record: 1-3
The Dolphins swam into their third defeat in a row last Sunday, as they came up short — again — in a 27-17 home loss to the Indianapolis Colts. Jacoby Brissett went 20/30 for 199 yards and a couple of touchdowns but was sacked three times for a loss of 31 yards. He also didn’t get much support from the running backs, as the Dolphins rushed for just 35 yards on 16 carries without a TD. It’s not easy to keep a straight face and make a case why the Dolphins can beat Tampa Bay. Then again, there are trends favoring at least a Dolphins cover. For one, Tampa Bay is just 1-4 against the spread in its last five games as the favorite. The Bucs are also 1-3-1 against the spread in their last five games at home against a team with a losing road record. And even though Miami’s offense is struggling, it could get a few breaks against Tampa Bay that might not have some key defensive players in Week 5 due to injuries, like Antoine Winfield Jr. (concussion) and Jason Pierre-Paul.

Betting on the Tampa Bay Buccaneers (-10.5)
Regular Season Record: 3-1
After losing to the Los Angeles Rams in Week 3, the Buccaneers are back to their winning ways, thanks to their 19-17 victory in Foxborough against the New England Patriots. Tom Brady did not throw a single touchdown nor a pick and finished with 269 passing yards on 22/43 completions, but led his team to a crucial scoring drive that gave the Buccaneers the lead for good. He can rebound against a clunky Miami team that’s got so many issues to sort out. Mike Evans, Antonio Brown, and Chris Godwin can have a field day against the Dolphins’ defense that made Carson Wentz look decent again. Leonard Fournette must also be licking his chops over the prospect of mowing down the same stop unit that allowed Jonathan Taylor to go off with 103 rushing yards and a touchdown on 16 carries.
The Buccaneers are 5-0 against the spread in their last five meetings with Miami.
The Buccaneers win, 27-16.
