The Miami Dolphins opening as a big favorite seems to be the norm in 2023, which still feels strange for Dolphins fans. As the team heads into Week 13 with an 8-3 record, firm control of the AFC East division title, and just a half-game out of the best record in the AFC, they are turning their attention to an inter-conference meeting with the Washington Commanders. The oddsmakers see Miami ready to continue their march toward the playoffs.
According to the DraftKings Sportsbook opening lines the Dolphins were initially nine-point favorites for Sunday’s game. As of Monday morning, the line had moved to -9.5 for the Dolphins, approaching another week where Miami is favored by double digits. The moneyline has Miami listed at -425 and the Commanders at +330.
The point total for the game is 50.5 combined points.
Since the NFL season is down to just six weeks remaining, a quick look through the playoff odds for the Dolphins seems warranted. The Dolphins are -20,000 to make the playoffs - meaning you would need to bet $20,000 to make $100 on a successful bet. They are +2,500 to miss the playoffs - a $100 bet would pay you $2,500 if Miami were to miss the postseason.
As for coming out of the 2023 season as Super Bowl Champions, Miami is listed with the fourth-best odds. The favorites are the San Francisco 49ers at +400, followed by Kansas City at +425. The Philadelphia Eagles are +450, then the Dolphins and Ravens are both +800.
