Buccaneers vs Dolphins Prediction & NFL Odds for Week 5

by Devin WeberOctober 5, 2021
  • The Buccaneers will win the game.
  • The Buccaneers will not cover the spread.
  • The game will be under the total points.

This will be Brady’s first game back to Miami, since he was on the Patriots. The Dolphins also played Brady well at their stadium. The Buccaneers are the better and hotter team.

The Dolphins lost and it was not to be a good team, they better be on their A-game if they want to win. The Buccaneers the last two weeks have not played their best football, but still should win. Let’s get to the predictions and betting lines.

Buccaneers vs Dolphins Prediction: Spread

The Buccaneers are 10 point favorites, according to PointBets. Tampa Bay is good, but however the last two weeks they have not played up to their potential. For the current streak, I can’t see the Buccaneers winning any game by over 10 points.

Also, there is that Miami thing, where Brady’s teams will not play the best there. It’ll be interesting to see if that continues or not. For the last two weeks and especially the Miami thing, we don’t have the Buccaneers covering the spread.

Buccaneers vs Dolphins Prediction: MoneyLine

The Buccaneers will still win the game, even with their recent struggles. The Dolphins are just outmatched in every facet, especially with Tua out. The Bucs will struggle early, but they shouldn’t lose.

The Dolphins did beat New England in week one, and the Bucs just struggled with them, so I expect another close low-scoring game. We all predict Tampa Bay winning this game, and the Dolphins will have to play way better than they did against the Colts.

The Colts so far seem like bottom feeders, so if I’m a Dolphins fan I would start getting scared. If Tampa loses then I would be scared as a fan of the Bucs. However, the Dolphins could play their best football and still lose (that’s the downside of playing a juggernaut).

Buccaneers vs Dolphins Predictions: Total Points

The total points is said to be 48 points, however, I don’t see this game scoring that high. Unless Tampa Bay can start scoring again. For the Dolphins they are playing a bad secondary, but I don’t trust Brisset to spark the Dolphins to more than 20 points.

I see the final score being 24 (Tampa) to 20 (Dolphins). This might seem really close, but the Dolphins always played Brady tough in New England. This Streak will continue into Tampa Bay.

This could be a high-scoring game, but with both teams’ recent struggles, I see this being more of a defensive showdown. However, we will find out on Sunday.

Prop Predictions

Unfortunately, there is not much prop betting for this game. However, I will give you some generic prop predictions. Tom Brady will have over 300 yards with 3 touchdowns. Brisset will have around 200 yards with a couple of picks.

FOr teams, I don’t expect either team to score on their first three drives. However, the Buccaneers will score a field goal on their opening drive. The Buccaneers will have over 400 yards of offense, the Dolphins won’t.

Bet the Prop

I really like Brady this week, so He’s the one player I think that will beat the prop. All other prop predictions are listed above.
