As the Raiders enter Week 3, there is an immense sense of urgency amongst the team and fans to finally secure their first win of the 2018 season. Unfortunately, they are facing yet another hot team in the Miami Dolphins who are currently riding high from their decisive wins over the Jets and Titans.

The odds for this game have been stable ever since they opened with the Dolphins as the steady 3-point favorites according to Oddshark. This after being underdogs at home to the Rams in week one and in Denver last week.

Though the Broncos didn’t cover the 6-point spread, it was still a disappointing 1-point loss in which their defense collapsed in the second half and their offense failed to score. The Dolphins offense had a similar experience against the Jets where they failed to score in the second half but, unlike the Raiders, their defense was able to close it out by limiting the Jets to 12 points.

With such a slim margin, it really is anyone’s bet regarding who wins this match-up.
