The Miami Dolphins host the Tennessee Titans in one-half of the NFL’s Week 14 Monday Night Football doubleheader tonight, with the Green Bay Packers and New York Giants simultaneously kicking off. The Dolphins come into tonight’s game at 9-3 on the season, slipping into second place in the AFC East by a half-game after the Baltimore Ravens won on Sunday. A Miami win tonight moves them back atop the AFC playoff picture and positions them to continue to control their way into the postseason tournament.

The Titans are on the opposite end of the playoff spectrum from Miami. They come into the game with a 4-8 record and are on the verge of being eliminated from the playoffs this season. They are just one game ahead of the New England Patriots for the worst record in the conference and they are struggling to find any rhythm this season as they head toward a top-five selection in the 2024 NFL Draft.

The oddsmakers are not expecting this to be a close game. The line opened with Miami favored by 13 points, according to DraftKings Sportsbook. It hovered there for most of the week, but by Monday morning, it increased to 14 points. The point total is set at 46. The Dolphins are -850 on the moneyline while the Titans are +575.
