If you’re a degenerate like me, the months between now and the start of the 2021 season are when I start to spend way too much money on the game I love.

Annual fees for dynasty leagues are due, every Dolphins home game looks tempting, and with new rookie additions, I can’t help but take a gander at some of the best prop bets on the market. I know, I know, placing a small wager can be stressful at times. After all, there are a lot of sports bookies to choose from. I personally like Bovada, as they have some of my favorite Miami Dolphins-specific prop bets on the market.

So without further ado, let’s take a look at some of my favorite Miami Dolphins prop bets on

Team Specific Prop Bets

Here’s a look at Bovada’s Miami Dolphins team-specific prop bets.

  • Super Bowl Champion | +3000
  • AFC Champion | +1500
  • AFC East Champion | +350
  • Best overall record | +3000
  • Worst overall record | +8000 (I’m sorry. I had to post this because I posted best.)
  • Wins | Over/Under 9
  • Playoffs | +115

Houtz’s take | If you have money to spend, it might be worth throwing a couple of bills (translate this accordingly) on the Miami Dolphins to win a Super Bowl—because hey, it’s going to happen sometime; right? RIGHT! RIGHT!?!?! RIGHT!

But if you’re looking for more of a “sure thing,” the Dolphins winning more than ten games in 2021, resulting in a playoff appearance, seems likely. If you’re feeling lucky, put a small wager on the team doing something outlandish like winning the AFC Championship or finishing with the best record in the league. Stranger things have happened.

Player Specific Prop Bets

My favorite thing about Bovada is they really do have a prop bet for everything.

Brian Flores

Coach of the Year | +1400

Tua Tagovailoa

MVP | +5000

Jaylen Waddle

  • Touchdowns | Over/Under 5.5
  • Yards | Over/Under 724.5
  • Offensive Rookie of the Year | +2400

Jaelan Phillips

Defensive Rookie of the Year - +750

Houtz’s take | Brian Flores probably should’ve won coach of the year a season ago, so this is a bet I’m always willing to throw a little cash money the birdman on. Unfortunately, I would pass on Tua Tagovailoa winning MVP in 2021 unless you have money to spend. Rookie wide receiver Jaylen Waddle should score more than 5.5 total touchdowns, but I think 724 yards receiving will be hard to surpass.

As for Waddle and Phillips winning rookie of the year, I’ll let Sern sell you on that one. But if I had to put my money on a Dolphins rookie, it would be Jaelan Phillips. Because while I believe both players will have an immediate impact, Phillips is going to bring a different type of dynamic to Brian Flores’ defense, unlike anything we’ve seen.

Which of these prop bets stands out to you as a sure thing? Dolphins winning 9 games? Jaylen Waddle scoring more than 5.5 touchdowns? Tua Tagovailoa as NFL MVP? Let us know in the comments section below!
