Dolphins are this year's Rodney Dangerfield - they get no respect....

But, defending the pass is not exactly one of their strong suits (currently 20th), and what are the Saints all about? 6.5 might be a little much, but 47.5 for the O/U? And the game is on Monday Night primetime in the Dome in New Orleans with all the nutballs, crazies, and drunk chicks trying for T.V. facetime?

BOMBS AWAY!!!!!!!!!! OVER!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

Somebody 45 - - Somebody 38

Good Luck All!!!!

   My hat's off to Big DaddyHpd's Dolphins! However, I'm still sane enough to take the Saints ,under the lights- in "primetime"!

NEW ORLEANS  -  6.5

Being a longtime Dolphins fan that went through a long drought of seeing anything great happen with the Dolphins still leaves me to wonder if they are for real this season. I'll wait till later in the season to see if they are. But I am a very happy fan so far.

The Dolphins have a lot of key injuries on defense. Wake practiced yesterday determined to play on Monday. I doubt he will play as his injury normally requires 2-3 weeks to recover.

Facing a powerhouse offense like the Saints is not any easy task with the Dolphins having all those injuries. The Dolphins defense already struggled in some areas with their starters playing, so I can't imagine how they will do against an offense like the Saints with the back ups in there.

Saints seemed to have a better defense this season as well with Rob Ryan in control.

The Dolphins o-line cannot continue to allow defenses to sack or get to Tannehill as often as they have been doing. Tannehill also needs to get rid of the ball quicker to avoid those costly sacks.

The Dolphins run game is slowly coming around but still lacks a threat to the opposing defenses.

I do have my doubts in this one for the Dolphins as I always do as a longtime suffering fan. Someone will come out of this game 4-0 and I'm really hoping it's the Dolphins.

GO DOLPHINS!!!!!!!!!

Gotta go with Saints -6.5.
Got it in early, I'm guessing the spread will get to 7 or maybe even 7.5?

New Orleans 38
Miami 17

Best of Luck

Dolphins r due for some good luck they might not win but i can not see them not scoring some points on the almighty saints defense. They haven't played anyone good either.

This is one of those games when you have to consider more than two units on the OVER... Both teams will be scoring the whole game and there's no way this game can get short.

Saints 37   Miami 28

miami +7, close game all the way, before looking at the line for this one I figured the saints would be -3 or -3.5,  7 points is too much, especially when I feel that miami is slightly better AT THE MOMENT. miami +7

New Orleans with their hard nose leader (Sean Payton) squarely back in the saddle in their dome usually means cash money.  However, when you look at the Saints three wins this year, two of those wins came against offensively challenged squads (Tampa Bay and Arizona).  Further, the Dolphins defense is better than two of those three squads (Atlanta and Arizona).  Miami has proven they can go on the road and put up points and I’m still NOT sold on how much impact Rex Ryan has made on one of the worst defenses statistically in the league last year. 

 

This will be by far the most complete team the Saints have faced this year AND when you couple that with the fact it would be in the Wise Men in Vegas best interest if the visitors cover the number………………  put me down for Miami plus a touchdown head start for three (3) C-Notes please.  Thanks!

Man looking at this game on paper, I'd have to go with the Saints.  They're better overall and Brees is proven, Tannehill will have to be extra super duper good to overcome the Saints under the lime light.  Not disrespecting the Dolphins and surprised to see how well they're doing.  But I don't think they can cover in this game.

True, the Dolphins beat the Falcons but that was their best opponent so far but the same goes for the Saints.  Right now the Falcons are rated just right above the Dolphins so it should be expected that the Saints not only beat but cover too.

Out of the 2 defenses, the Saints are better than last year and they're better than the Dolphins in that aspect also.  So with a better offense and defense, only luck would be able to get the Dolphins to cover and that would likely be at the end in a miracle play.  

I think that the Saints score and then pull away but not too far where the Dolphins can't come back in with the right calls. The Saints will be too much for the Fins on MNF in New Orleans and pull out not only the win but the cover.  

The O/U is too scary for me right now because you'll need the Fins to score enough to cover.  Considering the Saints have only given up 17pts so far this year it's not enough convince me that both teams combined will go over with that hook looming overhead.
