With the Dolphins winning six straight games to bring their record back to even, they have been riding high for nearly two months. Now, they’ll take on a 7-7 Saints team that could give them a winning record for the first time since Week 1.

According to Tipico Sportsbook, the line in this game has flipped from Miami being 3.5-point underdogs to 2.5-point favorites. They’ve also switched on the moneyline from +135 to -110. Even the over/under has moved from 38.5 points to 37.5 points.

To this point, the Saints have 15 players on the reserve/COVID list including starting quarterback Taysom Hill, backup quarterback Trevor Siemian, and starting right tackle Ryan Ramczyk. Left tackle Terron Armstead has also been dealing with a knee injury that’s kept him out of practice so far this week. If all of these players can’t go, this will be a very tough game for Sean Payton and company.

Miami has six players on the reserve/COVID list, but, of those, only cornerback Justin Coleman plays over 30% of the snaps. Miami’s defense has been incredible through their last six games, allowing just 13.2 points per game. Against a potentially limited offense, they should continue that run. However, the Dolphins will have to be at their best to put up points against a strong New Orleans defense.
