NFL betting: AFC East teams' awful ATS trend

The Miami Dolphins failed to cover as 3-point faves in a 24-20 loss to the Dallas Cowboys in the Hall of Fame Game Sunday.

The failure to cover the spread harkens back to a dismal 2012 preseason campaign for AFC East teams.

The Buffalo Bills, Miami Dolphins, New England Patriots and New York Jets finished the 2012 exhibition schedule a combined 1-15 ATS. The Bills were the only team to cover as they were 3-point dogs in a 7-6 loss to the Washington Redskins.

Miami, New England and New York all finished 0-4 ATS.

The preseasons schedule resumes Thursday, but the AFC East squads are in action on Friday.

The Jets are currently 4.5-road dogs as they face the Detroit Lions. The Pats are similar 4.5-point road underdogs in Philly to take on the Eagles. The Dolphins' second game is on the road against the Jacksonville Jaguars with the that matchup currently a pick 'em. Finally, The Indianapolis Colts host the Bills to finish off the week Sunday. The Bills are 3-point road dogs in that game.
