Oddsmakers currently have the Dolphins listed as 7-point favorites versus the Vikings, while the game’s total is sitting at 43.

Despite promising stretches, Ryan Tannehill is limping toward the end of his third season with just two touchdown passes against three interceptions over the last three weeks. Rookie Jarvis Landry had eight catches versus the Patriots and leads the club with 71 receptions while his 672 yards receiving trail only Wallace (804). A presence in the backfield would certainly help Miami as Lamar Miller has failed to eclipse 60 yards in his last four outings and has just one touchdown in his last six games.

Last time out for Miami, they were a 41-13 loser as they battled the Patriots on the road. The Dolphins failed to cover in the match as a +9-point underdog, while 54 combined points moved the game OVER for totals bettors.

Team record: 7-7 SU,7-7 ATS
Miami is 2-4 ATS in its last 6 games
Miami is 2-4 SU in its last 6 games
The total has gone UNDER in 7 of Miami’s last 9 games
The total has gone UNDER in 8 of Miami’s last 11 games at home

Bridgewater’s development in first-year coach Mike Zimmer’s offense has been aided by veteran Greg Jennings and in-season addition Charles Johnson. Jennings has reeled in a touchdown reception in three of his last four games while Johnson has two in that span – with a fumble on the goal line preventing a third in a 30-24 victory over the Jets on Dec. 7. Matt Asiata has assumed control of the beleaguered backfield, running for a score and adding a career-best seven receptions last week versus Detroit.

The Vikings were a 16-14 loser in their most recent outing on the road against the Lions. They covered the +8-point spread as underdogs, while the total score (30) made winners of UNDER bettors.

Minnesota:
Team record: 6-8 SU,9-5 ATS

The total has gone UNDER in 6 of Minnesota’s last 9 games
Minnesota is 2-13-1 SU in its last 16 games on the road
