Is it Fitzmagic all over again? Ryan Fitzpatrick and the Miami Dolphins are set to face the Seattle Seahawks at home this coming Sunday after scoring their first win of the season in Week 3. Fitzpatrick seems rejuvenated and has the Dolphins feeling confident again, but can that good feeling translate to a huge upset win over Russell Wilson and crew?
Betting Preview for the Seattle Seahawks vs Miami Dolphins Regular Season Week 4 Game on October 4, 2020
Where: Hard Rock Stadium
When: Sunday, October 4, 2020, 1:00 PM ET
TV Broadcast: FOX
Betting on the Seattle Seahawks (-6.5)
Regular Season Record: 3-0
Where would the Seahawks be without Russell Wilson? The dual-threat quarterback played like an early MVP candidate once again in Week 3, as he led the Seahawks to a 38-31 win over the Dallas Cowboys at home. Wilson racked up 315 passing yards and five touchdowns on 27-of-40 pass completions without an interception. Wilson leads the NFL with 14 passing touchdowns against just an interception, and he’s likely going to have an aerial party against Miami’s pass defense that is allowing a 71.8 completion rate percentage and 265.7 passing yards per game. And the Seahawks appear to have gotten good news on running back Chris Carson’s status. Carson left the Dallas game early with a knee injury, but it’s reportedly just a sprain, so he’s likely going to play and compile rushing yards against Miami that is just 25th in the NFL with 133.7 yards on the ground allowed per game.
The Seahawks are 3-0 against the spread (ATS) in their last three games.
Betting on the Miami Dolphins (+6.5)
Regular Season Record: 1-2
The Dolphins scored their first win of the season when they defeated the Jacksonville Jaguars on the road in Week 3, 31-13. Ryan Fitzpatrick is no Dan Marino, but he nevertheless shined in that game, passing for 160 yards and two touchdowns on 18-of-20 completions. He even set a career-high of 12 consecutive completions to go along with a rushing score. That performance speaks a lot about how bad the Jaguars’ defense is this season, but don’t count out Fitzpatrick duplicating those numbers against Seattle’s broken defense. In fact, Seattle is allowing the most passing yards per game to opponents so far this season with 430.7. Fitzpatrick and wide receiver DeVante Parker may be bound to cook Seattle’s secondary, especially with the latter expected to be 100 percent healthy again. Parker had 69 receiving yards on five receptions in the Jags game, and that’s with him braving through a problematic hamstring issue. Parker should feel better, though, as he’s had 10 days of rest by the time he lines up against the Seahawks.
The Dolphins are 4-1 ATS in their last five games overall.
The Seahawks win, 37-27.
