Both results see the winning team, with or without the spread. The Dolphins would be six points clear after their three-point deficit, while the Raiders would win by seven points, with the spread. It seems interesting that, basically, both teams come out to about a touchdown winner when the spread is considered.
What do you think of the results? Will Miami be near that double-digit win-margin when the final seconds tick off the clock? Will is be a much closer game?
