The Miami Dolphins are looking to end a two-game losing streak as they head into Week 15, but they will have to overcome the odds to do it. Miami visits the AFC East-leading Buffalo Bills on Saturday night, a showdown that could tighten up the division standings or basically lock the Bills into a division championship for 2022. Add in the expected weather and Miami has a tough night in front of them.

Miami won the first meeting between the rivals back in Week 2, coming away with a 21-19 victory at home. The sun and heat played a huge factor in that game, while the snow and cold appear set to be a factor tonight.

The oddsmakers agree that the Dolphins are facing an uphill battle. According to DraftKings Sportsbook, Buffalo is a seven-point favorite in the game as of Sunday morning. The weather definitely is factoring into the odds as well, with the game only listed as 43.5 a total score despite Miami and Buffalo both featuring high-powered offenses.
