Tampa Bay at Miami

2 units on Tampa Bay +2 (+100) (risk 2 to return 2)  RESULT: WIN

The Dolphins travel to face the Bucs in an intrastate exhibition rivalry in Florida. This has been an ultra-competitive series with seven of the last nine decided by 3 points or less. Miami has only covered one of the last six, and over a 10-year period the Bucs have been a dog just twice, winning the game both times. John Gruden has always seemed to get the Bucs to play harder than you'd expect in preseason games, as they have gone 15-8-1 ATS in his last six years as Bucs coach during the NFL-X. Tony Sparano takes over for the Dolphins, who were horrible last season at 1-15. They were bad the year prior too. Despite their team's obvious problems, and the recent results in this matchup, the Fins are marked the favorite. We view that as a soft line and we'll grab the Gruden and the Bucs.
