Our seventh Sunday Night Football matchup of the season promises to be one of the best we have seen. The 5-1 Miami Dolphins will be heading north to take on the 5-1 Philadelphia Eagles in what could be a preview of Super Bowl LVIII.
Both offenses are loaded with talent, and the defenses have some significant holes. We like the Dolphins to win in a high-scoring shootout that delivers one of the season's most exciting games.
If you want to make some money on this marquee matchup, we have you covered with this same game parlay. Below, we will break down each leg, giving you the odds and insights needed to win big this weekend.
We like Miami to win a close road game this season. The biggest reason for that is their passing attack. Jaylen Waddle and Tyreek Hill have been near unstoppable with Tua at quarterback, and they will be facing a struggling Eagles’ secondary on Sunday Night. The Eagles are allowing the twentieth-most passing yards per game (232.2) and the fourth-most touchdowns (11).
Philly’s issues against the pass will have a spotlight on them in primetime. Miami is averaging a league-best 316.8 passing yards per game and 15 touchdowns. They had no problem cutting their way through a Carolina secondary that has been better than Philly against the pass, and we see them having similar success tonight. If it were just Tyreek Hill, that would be one thing, but this Eagles’ secondary won’t be able to handle both him and Waddle.
The Eagles have the NFC’s top run defense again this season, but we think Miami can find some success. They lead the league in rushing yards per game at 181.8, which is 31.8 more than the second-place Eagles. The Miami offensive line is excellent, and we think they will make some holes for Raheem Mostert and Jeff Wilson Jr on Sunday night.
As discussed above, we expect this to be a very high-scoring game from the start. Both offenses are loaded with playmakers, while the defenses have some holes, which should set the stage for some early fireworks.
The Dolphins and Eagles have been starting hot through the season's first six weeks. Miami is averaging 6.3 points in the first quarter and has scored at least three points in all but one of their games. The Eagles are even better at 7.2 and have scored in every first quarter they have played this season.
Both teams move the ball quickly and have some of the best receivers in football. Given that both teams rank in the league's bottom half, this should be an easy cover on SNF.

Jaylen Waddle has had a slow start to the season, but that will change on Sunday. The Eagles' limited secondary will be focused on the red-hot Tyreek Hill, and they don’t have the depth to do the same to Waddle. The young speedster’s usage can be inconsistent, but he is due for his first big game of the season.
We have seen the Philadelphia pass defense face a less explosive version of this elite receiving duo in the Rams two weeks ago. They allowed Cooper Kupp and Puka Nacua to both go for over 70 yards, as Matthew Stafford connected with them 15 times. Waddle and Hill are more explosive than both of those Rams pass catchers, and we think they have even more success against the Eagles’ pass defense tonight.
Jalen Hurts is coming off his worst showing of the season, thanks to three interceptions against an outstanding Jets’ defense. While Hurts isn’t throwing many touchdowns and is struggling with interceptions, he is posting impressive yardage totals. Hurts has had over 251.5 passing yards in four straight games, which came against secondaries better than he will be facing tonight.
The Dolphins will be without Jalen Ramsey, whose meniscus tear has sidelined him all season. That means this secondary is without their best cornerback, which is a big problem against AJ Brown and DeVonta Smith. They are allowing an average of 229.2 passing yards per game, which has lowered thanks to playing the Giants and Panthers over the last two weeks. Miami’s defense can make plays but Hurts and the Eagles’ stellar pass catchers will be able to rack up some yards.
