Pitiful Picks: Dolphins in for a physical fight, can they win?

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)
