Miami Dolphins at New England Patriots CashBet Wagering Analysis

Last year was a difficult one for Patriots coach Bill Belichick.  The Hoodie saw his former quarterback, Tom Brady, escape to Tampa Bay and win a Super Bowl.  Meanwhile, New England had no answers as a former Super Bowl best bet.  Cam Newton was not the answer as Tom Brady’s replacement.  However, Newton faced the same problems as the GOAT did in his final season under Belichick.  New England had a poor supporting cast that couldn’t make plays.  This year Newton is gone, and rookie sensation Mac Jones takes over under center.   Tua Tagovailoa and Miami visit on Sunday.

Miami Dolphins at New England Patriots CashBet Wagering Analysis

Commencing with Mac Jones taking over as quarterback are the Patriots drawing online sportsbook support.  Bill Belichick still commands respect with the gambling public.  And there is a sense that Jones is a much better fit for New England than Newton was.  Further, gamblers and fans are encouraged by Belichick’s personnel upgrades on offense.  Preseason is not to be taken too seriously, but the Patriots sparked many highlight videos.  There is the sense that New England has nowhere to go but up after 2020.

Last season the Dolphins were a near-miss for the AFC Playoffs.  Miami responded well to then-rookie quarterback Tua Tagovailoa.  But the Dolphins proved to be much more than just their QB.  Gamblers were impressed with Miami’s unique brand of complementary football.  Head coach Brian Flores is improving both sides of the line.  Thus, gamblers see potential good value with the Dolphins.  Offsetting that is the Wise Guys’ concern that Miami will draw too much attention.  Their surprise element is gone from 2020.

Dolphins Looking for Playoff Campaign

Second, to Buffalo is the current public betting on Super Bowl expectation for the Dolphins.  A wild card playoff spot is quite possible.  Tua is not expected to carry the entire team.  As a result of this complimentary football, Miami is taken seriously as a contender.

At the onset of the 2021 NFL Draft, Mac Jones was expected to go in the top five.  However, Jones was passed up for flashier quarterbacks in those early slots.  But it may have been the best thing that happened to him.  New England’s style of offense is a perfect fit for Jones to succeed with the Super Bowl betting odds.
