The Miami Dolphins are about to have their toughest physical test of the season. Though the playoffs are a distant hope at this point, it’s important that they play well and improve each week as they head into the offseason. The primary thing I want to see if the continued development of Ryan Tannehill. Tannehill and the Dolphins offense will have a tough matchup today against the 49ers. Can they put up enough points to win? We’ll get to that a little later in our picks.
On the season we are 29-23, so we’re looking to create some separation between us and the .5o0 mark this week. Since the Dolphins are on the West Coast, these picks are coming to you a little later than normal. This will be an abbreviated version, but hopefully some winners for you, nonetheless!
Houston Texans +4 over New England Patriots
I know the Pats are at home for this big Monday Night Matchup. I know they are on a roll. I just don’t see how you can GIVE an 11-1 team 4 points. Quite honestly, I think the Texans are a more talented team than the Patriots and I expect them to win. But even if they lose by a field goal, you’re in the money here. The Patriots have put up a lot of points, but I expect that to change this week against a tough Texans defense. Texans 27 Patriots 24 (cont’d on page 2, click below)
