Chargers Host Dolphins in NFL Week 14 Betting Weekend

So far, Miami is one of the NFL’s top upstart contenders.  Second-year QB Tua Tagovailoa has injected enthusiasm and optimism in Miami.  These two young, up-and-coming teams are so appealing that NBC flexed out the Chiefs and Broncos for its Sunday Night Football telecast.  The Chargers were one of the hottest betting on NFL tickets on the summer future market.  In turn, the Chargers are in AFC playoff contention.  But Los Angeles is far behind the Chiefs for the division lead.   LA has not provided star QB Justin Herbert with the necessary support of a reliable running game and defense.

Dolphins vs. Chargers CashBet Wagering Analysis  

Miami is a more popular Sportsbook buy for the masses as a serious contender in the AFC.  But Wise Guys are concerned about the value on Miami.  Too much casual sector money is going to the Dolphins.  Los Angeles won’t be an easy sell to gamblers as an overrated team that was over-hyped.  The Chargers have caused red ink too often this season.  

Dolphins Stunned in San Francisco

Last game, the Miami Dolphins lost 33-17 against the San Francisco 49ers as 4.5-point road dogs.  The game went over the Betting on football total of 46.  Miami has a record of 8-4 straight up, 6-6 against the spread, and 6-6 over/under the total.  Miami ranks 4th for total offense, 2nd for passing, 28th for rushing, and 8th for scoring.  Defensively they rank 17th overall, 21st against the pass, 9th against the rush, and 25th for points allowed.  Also, Miami ranks 17th for turnovers lost and 25th for takeaways.

Everything was set up for another win for the streaking Dolphins.  However, backup quarterback Brock Purdy and the Niners had other ideas.  Purdy threw two touchdown passes after replacing the injured Jimmy Garoppolo.  San Francisco used another dominant defensive performance to beat Miami for its fifth straight win.  In sum, Purdy finished 25 for 37 for 210 yards, two TDs, and one interception.

Chargers Cleaned Out in Las Vegas by Raiders 

Last game, the Los Angeles Chargers lost 27-20 against the Las Vegas Raiders as 2.5-point road dogs.  The game went under the NFL bets total of 49.5.  Los Angeles has a record of 6-6 straight up, 7-5 against the spread, and 6-6 over/under the total.  The Chargers rank 13th for total offense, 5th for passing, 31st for rushing, and 14th for scoring.  Defensively they rank 26th overall, 19th against the pass, 29th against the rush, and 30th for points allowed.  Also, LA ranks 11th for turnovers lost and 13th for takeaways

Indeed, the loss was a significant setback for the Chargers.  Los Angeles is just outside the playoff picture.  An aggressive Las Vegas defense sacked Justin Herbert five times.  Chandler Jones entered with just a half-sack.  But the defensive end recorded three in the first half alone.  Also, he tackled Herbert a yard short of the first down on a fourth-and-2 in the first quarter.  Herbert completed 28 of 47 passes for 335 yards for this 20th career 300-yard game.

Raider QB Derek Carr passed for 250 yards and two touchdowns.  While Davante Adams caught eight passes for 177 yards, surpassing 1,000 yards for the fourth time since 2018.  Also, he has 85 career touchdown catches, moving past Calvin Johnson for the fifth-most for a receiver in his first nine seasons.  Additionally, Josh Jacobs rushed for 144 yards and a touchdown, and the Raiders improved to 5-1 this season when he had 100 or more yards.  Jacobs has 1,303 yards for the season.
