As part of the late afternoon kickoffs, this matchup is one you’re not going to want to miss. Let’s get started!

The current constitution

Dolphins Shutout in Disappointing Week 2

After a promising start in the opening weekend, beating AFC East rivals the New England Patriots, the Miami Dolphins were seemingly brought back down to Earth in week 2. A 16-15 victory in week 1 was enough to secure the first win of the season, but against another division rival - the Buffalo Bills - Miami were shut out in their first home game of the new NFL season, losing 35-0. What has now become even worse for the Dolphins is that starting QB Tua Tagovailoa suffered broken ribs late in week 2, and will now miss out this week’s matchup. Jacoby Brissett will be promoted to starter.

Las Vegas Raiders Surprising Everyone So Far

It’s safe to say that before the start of the season, not many would have the Las Vegas Raiders at 2-0 after their first two matchups of the new season. Part of the first Monday Night Football of 2021, the Raiders took the Baltimore Ravens to overtime, before winning the game 33-27. Derek Carr & Co. proved everyone wrong in week 1, and then did exactly the same in week 2, with a 26-17 victory against another AFC North team, the Pittsburgh Steelers. It’s been two very impressive performances from Las Vegas, and they have a great opportunity to extend their winning record this Sunday.

Head to Head

When it comes to the head to head encounters between the Dolphins & the Raiders, the two don’t come across one another too often. With that said, the two went toe to toe in week 16 of last year’s season, with Miami edging the win with a last-second field goal. This came thanks to former Dolphins QB Ryan Fitzpatrick throwing a memorable pass despite having a hand in his face cage and being pulled to the ground. However, apart from that, the two don’t play against one another too often, meaning that some of the past results don’t account for anything. For example, our experts haven’t considered the Dolphins’ 35-13 win all the way back in September 2012 when compiling the latest betting tip.

Our Betting Tip for Today

After everything considered, we are now here to present you our latest betting tip! Looking at all of the information about the two franchises, we’re predicting that there will be over 5.5 total touchdowns for both teams combined during the match!

Raiders Extend Their Undefeated Record in 2021

That’s right, we’re predicting that there will be at least six TDs this Sunday as the Dolphins take on the Raiders. We think that the Las Vegas offense will continue to roll, and will ultimately get the win and extend their record to 3-0. However, despite their backup QB starting in week 3, we think the Dolphins will look to get some points on the board quickly after a disappointing scoreline in week 2. Therefore, they’ll be determined to score some touchdowns, and they could definitely do just that this weekend.

Using bet365’s Score Props, you can find odds for over 5.5 total touchdowns for both teams combined at +160 - generous odds for a likely outcome!
