3 units on Game Total UNDER 37.5 -105 (risk 3 to return 3) RESULT: WIN
The Dolphins and Bucs meet in a long-standing preseason rivalry that has seen 23 games played, with Miami holding the advantage at 14-9. These teams are both still exploring starting QB's which should be the key to both teams' seasons. These teams historically have played defensive battles in these games. The last 12 played have seen the under go 10-2, and the winning team had 17 or less points in nine of the ten that went under. There is added reason to believe these teams will play low scoring here, besides the history. These teams meet during the regular season and it isn't likely they are going to tip their hand or show anything special. Instead, they should keep things basic and conservative. In addition the Bucs are 26-11 UNDER the past 15 years in the preseason when instilled as a favorite. I like this one to go UNDER the total.
