Best Miami Dolphins Betting Sites

It’s been a long time since there was this much buzz and excitement surrounding the Miami Dolphins. A team that not only hasn’t made the playoffs, but hasn’t even enjoyed a winning season since they captured the 2008 AFC East title, Miami hasn’t won a playoff game since 2000 and qualified for postseason play just once in the past 14 seasons. You have to go back to Super Bowl XIX to find the last time the Dolphins played in the big game and all the way back to Super Bowl VIII to find the last occasion when the Dolphins were [+]

Super Bowl champions.

In new head coach Adam Gase they acquired one of the brightest offensive minds in football and Gase drew upon his connections from past football jobs to bring the likes of Peyton Manning and Wes Welker to Miami to help tutor some of his younger players.

He’s added a number of high-end skill players to the Miami roster and for the first time in years, there appears to be hope that the Dolphins are no longer swimming against the current.

No quarterback spent more time on his back over the past four seasons than Miami’s Ryan Tannehill, who was sacked an NFL-high 184 times during that span.

It’s amazing to think that the Dolphins’ quarterback has been able to remain healthy through all that punishment when he so infrequently remains upright at the end of a passing play. The Dolphins spent their top pick of the 2016 NFL draft on Mississippi’s Laremy Tunsil and that will give the team four first-round picks on the offensive line.

If this group can stay healthy and play up their potential, it should also provide Tannehill the time and opportunity to do likewise.

One of the changes new head coach Adam Gase intends to implement for the 2016 NFL season is to play with much more tempo when they are in possession of the football.

The alterations will include plenty of no-huddle offense. The Dolphins intend to come at teams with speed and push the pace to see if they can wear down opposing defenses, and added some significant skill players in order to make that happen.

The key will be to succeed, however. The drawback to an up-tempo offense is that when it isn’t clicking, it isn’t on the field for long, so there’s always the potential that the only defense the Dolphins will wear out might be their own.

How To Win At Miami Dolphins Betting

The debate over the abilities of Miami Dolphins quarterback Ryan Tannehill are much like those old “less filling, tastes great” Lite Beer commercials. You aren’t allowed to sit on the fence in this argument. You must choose a side.

Some feel that Tannehill has been handcuffed by his environment, including a weak offensive line and a coaching staff that forbid him from calling audibles at the line of scrimmage. In head coach Adam Gase, described by Peyton Manning as one of the greatest offensive minds he knows, and offensive co-ordinator Clyde Christensen, Tannehill is working with two quarterback-friendly coaches. 

If they can find him a running game, this should be Tannehill’s time to shine. Otherwise, the naysayers will all get the chance to say “I told you so.”

As much as the offense will create excitement for the Miami Dolphins this season, determining whether it’s going to be another long year in Miami, or time once again to fear the fins will come down to whether the Dolphins can find a way to put some substance with their style and play a little defense. Miami was 25th in the NFL in total defense in 2015 and allowed 2,019 rushing yards, fifth-worst in the league.

Defensive tackle Ndamukong Suh was supposed to solidify things when he arrived in 2015 but never seemed to mesh with head coach Joe Philbin’s system.

The Dolphins added veteran pass rusher Mario Williams in 2016 and while there is some talent on this side of the ball, there’s still not enough to suggest that Miami can jump into playoff contention.
