NFL Sunday Preview: Miami Dolphins at Arizona Cardinals

NFL Nov 07, 2020

Sunday's match-up between the Arizona Cardinals (5-3) and Miami Dolphins (4-3) should be a  football game for the ages. After all, Miami's defense is coming into Sunday's matchup with the #1 scoring defense, allowing a stingy 18.6 points per game. On the flipside, Kyler Murray has Arizona's offense currently ranked 8th in scoring, averaging 29 PPG.

These two teams match up extremely well on paper. And although QB wins isn't a thing, it's going to be exciting to watch Tua Tagovailoa and Kyler Murray in a classic western shootout in the desert.

Here are my three prop bets for the Dolphins-Cardinals game.

Winner Full Time / Spread Full Time

Brian Flores' football team comes into this match-up as +4.5 point underdogs. But despite everything Miami has been through over the last 24 hours--and Arizona's recent BYE--the Dolphins are going to be ready to play.

And while no one should expect the defense to play 92 snaps, create 29 pressures, and get four takeaway every Sunday, we should expect a valiant effort once more from Josh Boyer's unit. I think this will be a complete game from both teams, on both sides of the football.  The Dolphins travel west and leave Arizona with a two-point win over the red-hot Cardinals.

Bet | Dolphins +4.5 | 1.92 | or Dolphins FT Winner | 2.90 |

Kyler Murray over/under .5 Interceptions

After watching the film, I think it's safe to say Kyler Murray is playing MVP-caliber football. But that doesn't mean he isn't prone to mistakes--as is any player that steps on the field on game day.

I'm not sure how Miami will matchup vs. Arizona's playmaking wide receivers. Will Xavien Howard or Byron Jones cover DeAndre Hopkins? Who will cover Christian Kirk and Larry Fitzgerald? Miami's secondary vs. Arizona's wide receivers? I don't know who ultimately comes out of this with the upper-hand, but I do think it's safe to expect the Dolphins defense to pick up exactly where they
left off last week. Which means you'd be smart to take them over.

Bet | Kyler Murray over .5 Interceptions (1.75)

Any-time Touchdown scorer

There's a lot of good plays here, and I could've gone in several different ways. You could go with the inevitable Kyler Murray (1.80) rushing touchdown. Or perhaps, a Jordan Howard goal-line scamper (2.50), But for me, I'm going to lay my money down on Preston Williams. (3.10)

Yes, he struggled last week with consistency issues. However, that is expected from a young wide receiver. And the last time we saw Williams suffer from a case of the drops, he redeemed himself the following week for a touchdown.

I don't necessarily think you should put your money down on Preston Williams being the first scorer (15.00), but I do believe he will bounce back and score his fourth touchdown of the season.

Bet | Any-time TD scorer | Preston Williams (3.10)
