The division rival Buffalo Bills and Miami Dolphins are set to renew hostilities on Sunday when they meet at Hard Rock Stadium.

LINE: Bills -3. O/U: 43.5
PREDICTION: Dolphins 23, Bills 20
Oddsmakers currently have the Bills listed as 2-point favorites versus the Dolphins, while the game’s total is sitting at 44.
Ryan Tannehill enjoyed a rare occurrence last week as the 28-year-old wasn’t sacked and was pressured on just six percent of dropbacks versus the Steelers — a far cry from the 32 percent in his previous five. Tannehill continues to rely on trusted wideout Jarvis Landry (NFL second-best 41 receptions), who leads the league in market share of his team’s passing game with 31.3 percent of Miami’s targets. The 23-year-old Landry reeled in nine catches in both outings versus Buffalo last season. Miami was a 30-15 winner in its last match at home against the Steelers. They covered the +7.5-point spread as underdogs, while the total score of 45 sent UNDER bettors to the payout window.
Team record: 2-4 SU,2-4 ATS
Miami is 1-4 ATS in its last 5 games
Miami is 3-7 SU in its last 10 games
The total has gone UNDER in 6 of Miami’s last 9 games
Quarterback Tyrod Taylor threw two touchdown passes in each of his last two contests for Buffalo, which is looking to secure its first five-game winning streak since 2004. The Miami native is 2-0 with four touchdowns, no interceptions and a 145.0 QB rating against the Dolphins, but his receiving corps could take a different look on Sunday. Wideout Robert Woods was in a walking boot and missed practice on Thursday to put his availability in jeopardy, while Marquise Goodwin and Justin Hunter would expect to take the majority of snaps at receiver if he cannot play. The Bills were a 45-16 winner in their most recent outing at home against the 49ers. They covered the -7.5-point spread as favorites, while the total score (61) made winners of OVER bettors.
Team record: 4-2 SU,4-2 ATS
Current Streak: won 4 straight games.
Buffalo is 4-1 ATS in its last 5 games
Buffalo is 4-1 SU in its last 5 games
The total has gone OVER in 4 of Buffalo’s last 5 games
