Miami at Las Vegas

2 units on Miami +7 (-110) (risk 2 to return 3.82)  RESULT: WIN

The Dolphins have hit rock bottom so it's time to back them here. They've dropped three straight and six of seven. They were shut out 22-0 last week by a mediocre team. It's times like this that it's toughest to take that ugly underdog but we need to muster enough will to back the Fins here. After a game like that, players and coaches are embarrassed and have heard about it all week. They'll put on a much better show this week as a result. Head coach Nick Saban challenged his players this week. "We want to see guys compete so we can know whether they need to be here, we want them to be here and if they are the kind of people we want" Saban said. This is a sandwhich game for Oakland. They are off three important, high-intensity games (divisional opponents KC and Denver and a stiff test against Washington). And they have a divisional game coming up against San Diego next week. This is the least important of the four games for the Raiders who are feeling pretty good about themselves after winning last week as a six-point underdog. And, this system has been exceptional this season: Teams off a road game in which they scored less than 10 points are 9-1 ATS. Miami for two stars.
