Patriots vs. Dolphins betting odds: Week 1 moneyline, spread originally appeared on NBC Sports Boston

The 2021 NFL regular season is finally here after three weeks of preseason games.

A handful of New England Patriots players emerged as key playmakers in limited preseason action, including Jakobi Meyers, Rhamondre Stevenson and Jonnu Smith. Meyers and Smith will play key roles on the offense, but the big question will be at quarterback. Either Cam Newton or Mac Jones will be tasked with leading the Patriots back to the postseason after a 7-9 campaign in 2020.

The 21st year of the Bill Belichick era will begin at home against the Miami Dolphins on Sept. 12.

Here’s the full betting preview for the Patriots’ Week 1 game against the Dolphins:

Patriots vs. Dolphins Moneyline, Spread and Total

Line: Patriots -2.5

Over/under: 44.5

Patriots team total O/U: 23.5

Dolphins team total O/U: 21

Moneyline: Patriots -150 | Dolphins +130

The Patriots and Dolphins know each other all too well. They meet twice per year as division rivals, and Dolphins head coach Brian Flores was a longtime Patriots assistant. There are seven former Patriots on Miami’s roster and six former Dolphins on New England’s roster entering 2021. Last season, the teams split their season series 1-1 with each team winning at home, including the Patriots winning in Foxboro at the season opener.

One year ago, the Patriots began the post-Tom Brady era with a 21-11 victory over the Dolphins at Gillette Stadium. A lot has changed since then, including the decision to draft quarterback Mac Jones in the first round of the 2021 draft. Jones won the starting job over veteran Cam Newton after an impressive preseason, and he’ll make his regular season debut against Miami. The Patriots also added high-priced free agents Matt Judon, Jonnu Smith, Hunter Henry and Nelson Agholor, among others.

Miami enters its first full season with Tua Tagovailoa under center after the Alabama alum started nine games as a rookie. The Dolphins went 10-6 on the season, but a Week 17 loss to the Bills -- where Tagovailoa had three interceptions -- kept them out of the postseason. General manager Chris Grier added some reinforcements at wide receiver this offseason, signing Will Fuller and drafting Jaylen Waddle in the first round.
