Miami Dolphins odds to make the playoffs

Bet365 sportsbook has Miami at 4 to 7 to make the playoffs (-175 or 4/7). That is heavily on the shorter side of EVEN odds with the sportsbook. The “not to make the playoffs” side of the proposition is priced at 29 to 20 (ie. 29/20 or +145). Betting trends or oddsmaker opinions clearly favor the Dolphins getting into the NFL postseason this year.

The Dolphins have a very reasonable schedule to work with over the next several weeks. For tough games, they will face the Buffalo Bills and the Minnesota Vikings. However, the bulk of the games they will play are ones where they should be favored by at least a few points if not much more. Looking at the schedule below, Miami could be 7-3 after Week 11.

  • Week 3: vs. Buffalo (Miami is currently +4 with bet365 sportsbook)
  • Week 4: @ Cincinnati
  • Week 5: @ New York Jets
  • Week 6: vs Minnesota
  • Week 7: vs. Pittsburgh
  • Week 8: @ Detroit
  • Week 9: vs. Cleveland
  • Week 10: BYE WEEK
  • Week 11: vs. Houston

The Dolphins had a disappointing season last year, one where they failed to make the playoffs. However, the huge majority of their losses came in the first half of the season. In the second half of the season, Miami was one of the best teams in the league. It seems that the success they enjoyed in the second half of 2021/22 has carried over into this season. The win over the Baltimore Ravens promises to put Miami on the radar when NFL power rankings are updated late on Monday night or early on Tuesday morning.
