Dolphins vs. Saints Week 16 odds

Spread: Dolphins -2.5
Point total: 37.5
Moneyline: Dolphins -140, Saints +120

Our picks for Dolphins vs. Saints

Pick against the spread: Dolphins -2.5 (-110)

It’s very possible for the Saints to pull off another stunning defensive performance, especially against the Dolphins. However, Miami is on a roll and should be fairly healthy offensively. Tua Tagovailoa is playing well right now, and should be able to navigate New Orleans’ defense well. On the flip side, the Saints are going with Ian Book at quarterback due to COVID-19 costing them Taysom Hill and Trevor Siemian. Take the Dolphins against the spread here.

Over/under: Under 37.5 (-105)

Both teams should have some struggles moving the ball. The Dolphins have been putting up a lot of points over this win streak, but they’ll be challenged more on the road. As for the Saints, it’s hard to back this offense to get past 14 points with Book under center. Look for a low-scoring affair here.

Preferred player prop: TBD
