Miami Dolphins Over/Under Set to 7.5 Wins

With a new season about to start, the Dolphins have been given a 7.5 over/under. Are the Dolphins once again looking at finishing with a 7&9 record?

The internet gambling site recently announced their first official over/unders for the NFL season.  The Miami Dolphins were given, after all of the offseason moves, an over/under of 7.5.  If you don't gamble, this means the Dolphins are projected to finish right around the, now customary, 7&9 record of the last two years, or an 8&8 record.

Basically, you can bet if you think the Dolphins will finish with a more wins than 7.5 (over) or fewer wins than 7.5 (under).  

So, where do you stand on the 7.5 over/under bet?

Personally, I think this team is probably a 9 win team, so I am taking the over.  Obviously, quarterback Chad Henne has to perform.  But, I think with the additions of Reggie Bush, Jason Taylor, Mike Pouncey and Daniel Thomas, among all the others, this team is better than the 7&9 team from a year ago.

The loss of Ricky Williams, Channing Crowder, and Ronnie Brown could hurt, but I think the new pieces will help the team.

Do I think this is a 10 win, AFC East Champion team?  Probably not, but I wouldn't be surprised if the 2008 magic came back either.

Around the rest of the league, the Carolina Panthers hold the lowest over/under in the NFL, with a 4.5 O/U.  

The Dolphins were predicted to have a game advantage over the Arizona Cardinals, Tennessee Titans, Seattle Seahawks, Washington Redskins, Oakland Raiders, and Cleveland Browns (all 6.5 over/under), a game and a half lead over the Jacksonville Jaguars (6 O/U), and a two game cushion on the Buffalo Bills, Cincinnati Bengals, and Denver Broncos (5.5 O/U).

The Minnesota Vikings hold place at 7 game O/U. 

Tied with the Dolphins at the 7.5 O/U position were the Detroit Lions, Kansas City Chiefs, St. Louis Rams, and San Francisco 49ers. The Tampa Bay Buccaneers beat out the Dolphins by a half game.

At the 8.5 O/U mark come the Chicago Bears and Houston Texans, with the Dallas Cowboys finishing a half game ahead of them, and the Indianapolis Colts and New York Giants reaching the 9.5 O/U slot.

The New Orleans Saints, New York Jets, and San Diego Chargers bring in the 10 game over/under positions, while the Atlanta Falcons, Baltimore Ravens, Philadelphia Eagles, and Pittsburgh Steelers fall into the 10.5 O/U slot.

On top of the league are the Super Bowl Champion Green Bay Packers and the New England Patriots at 11.5 O/U.
