Miami Dolphins could be NFL Betting Lines Dark Horse

June 17th, 2010 by

It has been a very long time since the Miami Dolphins entered the football betting season resembling anything like a NFL betting lines favorite. But thanks to a busy offseason and some young talent on the verge of making a major impact on the NFL gambling results, NFL odds makers are very high on the Dolphins chances heading into the NFL betting season.

The Miami Dolphins have been little more than an average team over the past few NFL wagering seasons and the team is only two years removed from a nightmarish 1-15 season. But since football guru Bill Parcells and head coach Tony Soprano took over this team’s performance against the NFL gambling lines has certainly trended upward.

For the most part this team’s roster has been as talented starved as any in the NFL betting lines action but has also been an overachiever and able to win a modest total of games. But this football betting offseason the team got an infusion of talent at the position where it was needed most: WR.

The team made the biggest trade of the NFL betting offseason by trading for the troubled but supremely talented WR from the Broncos, Brandon Marshall. Marshall automatically upgrades this offense from poor to the division title contender simply by stepping on the field. The Dolphins have consistently had the worst receiving corps in football betting and this has forced their offense to become one-dimensional and over rely on the run.

Not this year. With young QB Chad Henne poised for a breakout season he could put huge numbers this NFL betting season if Marshall can stay healthy and adapt to playing in Miami. The running game will remain one of the best in football betting with RBs Ronnie Brown and Ricky Williams sharing carries.

On defense there are few holes but the front seven remains strong and if the secondary can simply cut down on the number of big plays over the top this team will be as good as any in the AFC East. That’s right, this team will be able to compete head to head in the NFL betting lines competition with the New York Jets and New England Patriots. And when the football betting dust clears, we might just see the Dolphins hoisting the division title.
