Dolphins are underdogs for preseason matchup with Raiders

·1 min read

The Miami Dolphins are set to host their first preseason game of 2022, with the Las Vegas Raiders traveling to Miami Gardens for a Saturday night battle at Hard Rock Stadium.

According to Tipico Sportsbook, Miami is currently a 2.5-point underdog for the matchup. They’re also underdogs on the moneyline, as their victory is set at +105. The over/under for the contest is 41.5 points.

Mike McDaniel’s team is coming off of a last-second win in their preseason opener off of a missed field goal attempt from the Tampa Bay Buccaneers. While rookie quarterback Skylar Thompson played that entire game, Miami’s coach hasn’t made it clear whether or not Tua Tagovailoa or other starters will play in this week’s contest.

Las Vegas, led by new head coach Josh McDaniels, is heading into their third preseason matchup, after they had an opportunity to play in this year’s Hall of Fame game in Canton, Ohio. The Raiders haven’t played their starting quarterback, Derek Carr, or top wideout, Davante Adams, yet, so this could be the first time we see the duo on the field together since their days at Fresno State.

With the talent that these two teams have on paper, many are picking them to be battling it out for Wild Card spots down the stretch of the 17-game regular season.

Las Vegas and Miami will face off on Saturday at 7:00 p.m. ET.
