Dolphins vs Steelers Prop Betting

First thing to know is I am using lines from two different online sportsbooks. I always have accounts with at least 3 different sportsbooks so I can do some line shopping. Another thing to know is that the two I used here (MyBookie.ag & SportsBetting.ag) both put their lines up the day before. My other betting account (Bovada.lv) doesn’t offer all of the player prop bet lines until the day of the event. It really helps out a lot to have that extra time to compare betting lines.

The spread on this game has risen from the Steelers opening at -8 & now up to -11.5 at the time of this writing. There is still big money going down on the Steeelers so this spread my keep going up. Because cold weather is expected on game day the total has stayed relatively low at 45.5 points. While it will be cold there will not be heavy winds. I don’t think the weather will inhibit the Steelers offense. For Miami, they will run the ball as much as possible early. However, once the Steelers threaten to pull away the Dolphins will throw the ball much more in the second half. Looking at a late cover by the Dolphins as long as I can get double digit on the spread. My game score prediction and betting pick are available on SportsBetting.Pics…GL

The three Online Sportsbooks I use. You can compare the odds yourself. Bovada will offer the most player & game prop bets. It is just that they won’t be up until game day so they are the last ones I look at. I use Bovada props to balance out the “books” on my prop betting because Bovada also offers “In-Game” prop betting. Just wait for about 3 minutes of game activity and then take a look at the odds by clicking on the link below and you will see prop odds change on each play.
