  • Opening point spread: Dolphins -6.5
  • Opening moneyline: Dolphins -290/Broncos +235
  • Opening total: Over/Under 46.5 points scored
  • Time: 1 p.m. ET Sunday (CBS)

UPDATE 10:30 A.M. ET SUNDAY: Miami dipped from -6.5 to -6 Saturday, after opening -7 at BetMGM. Still, ticket count is 3/1 and money 2/1-plus on the Dolphins.

BetMGM's total sits at 47.5, up from a 46.5 opener and 48.5 peak. The Over is seeing 67% of tickets/60% of money.

UPDATE 2:30 P.M. ET FRIDAY: Interestingly, this line backed up from Dolphins -7 to -6.5 Monday at BetMGM, and it hasn't moved since. Early tickets and money are running about 3/1 on Miami.

The total opened at 46.5, peaked at 48.5 a couple times and has been stable at 48 since Thursday afternoon. Ticket count is 2.5/1 and money 2/1 on the Over.

UPDATE 9:30 P.M. ET SUNDAY: Miami (2-0 SU and ATS) has gone on the road each of the first two weeks and come away unblemished, on the field and at the betting window. In Week 2 at New England, the Dolphins were 2-point favorites and notched a 24-17 win.

On the flip side, Denver is 0-2 SU and ATS, with both losses as a home favorite. The Broncos blew a 21-3 second-quarter lead against Washington, giving up 32 of the next 35 points. Then Denver rallied and had a chance to get to OT after a miraculous Hail Mary touchdown on the final play of regulation.

But the subsequent 2-point attempt failed, and the Broncos lost 35-33 laying 3.5 points.

"Not much action on this game yet, as it is off board with Miami playing on Sunday Night Football," Degnon said. "Some smaller bets on the Dolphins and Over, but nothing of note. I think the public will be on Miami here, and I anticipate we'll be rooting for Denver come Sunday."

As Degnon alluded to, The SuperBook took Broncos-Dolphins off the NFL odds Week 3 board once the Dolphins-Patriots game began. Broncos-Dolphins will go back up Monday morning.

Broncos vs Dolphins Pick, Prediction

Action Network NFL betting expert Brandon Anderson offers this prediction:

If you're a trends better, it's Denver or nothing. This is an absolute trends bonanza for the Broncos. They fit every one of those Kitchen Sink trends, plus a litany of others.

Our Luck Rankings say Miami has been the third luckiest team in the NFL through two weeks, while the Broncos have been the second unluckiest. Denver is a top Luck Rankings play of the week.

As frustrating as this Broncos season has been to start, the offense has actually moved the ball pretty well. Denver ranks third in Success Rate, and this talented pass defense can compete with the high-flying Dolphins, especially if Jaylen Waddle is limited or out and Pat Surtain can chase Tyreek Hill around all game.

It's not just the Kitchen Sink trends, either. Week 3 road underdogs of seven or less are 60% ATS, and teams playing their home opener in Week 3 like Miami are 20-36-2 ATS (36%). Sean Payton has been outstanding after a loss (63% ATS) and as an underdog (61%), and Russell Wilson has been just as good (60% and 68%) in those spots.

Pick: Broncos +6.5 (-110)
