While the 4-1 Minnesota Vikings sit atop the NFC North, the 3-2 Miami Dolphins are stuck in third place in the AFC East thanks to that divisional loss to the New York Jets last week, 17-40, all part of a two-game Dolphins skid that is most likely the result of the head injuries to QBs Tua Tagovailoa and Teddy Bridgewater.
Rookie backup QB Skylar Thompson played in Week 5, and he was sacked twice and threw an interception in that loss, so be sure to check on whether backup Bridgewater is good to go before you break open your betting kitty on this one, though if Teddy plays this team is good enough to at least cover the spread at home given their top-5 passing offense this season.
What makes the Vikings so dangerous are all the weapons that QB Kirk Cousins has access to including WRs Adam Thielen and his favorite target Justin Jefferson who had slow games in weeks three and four but who has stepped up these last two outings (22 recs for 301 yds), a necessary addition to OC Wes Phillips game plan since RB Dalvin Cook can’t do it all alone.

This is always a fun bet when two strong offenses are going head to head and the Vikes and Phins have two passing attacks that could find the end zones early and often, with Minnesota’s and Miami’s offenses each typically putting 23 points on the scoreboard, that total – 46 – exactly what the oddsmakers are predicting here.
Best to also take a look at what these two defenses tend to give up each game – the Vikings opponents average 20.4 points per game and teams the Dolphins play score an average of 26.2 points each game, so that total – 46.6 – is just over what this bet allows, so it comes down to whether or not you believe that these two teams will have a typical game or instead implode.
In Florida, the Dolphins stadium is built so as to allow the hot Florida sun to shine directly on the visiting bench while the home bench is protected by a comfortable layer of shade, with another scoring factor being key injuries like to Miami WR Tyreek Hill (foot) and CB Xavien Howard (groin) as well as to Minnesota’s RB Ty Chandler (thumb) who is listed as doubtful.
Given the injuries to so many of the Dolphins playmakers as well as the forward momentum the Vikings are experiencing, it makes sense to think Minnesota will win this game outright, meaning they will outscore Miami without needing any extra points from the oddsmakers, and that $225 bet would win you back $100.
If you decide to go the other way, a $100 winning wager on the Miami Dolphins to beat the Vikings outright would net you $265 plus your original wager, a nice payday that should tell you just how banged up this three-win Dolphins team must be to offer that much action on a money line win, yet another reason to check back at game time to see who exactly is suiting up to play.
Remember, the key to placing the wisest wager available is to do your research including by shopping around for the best odds at the various sportsbooks, a smart move given how often those odds will shift and change depending on which side of the bet is getting more popular, something that will no doubt affect this Vikings and Dolphins matchup right up to game time.
