Miami has put together one of the most stunning comebacks in NFL history – but there’s still work to do as the Dolphins put a seven-game winning streak on the line Sunday in Tennessee.

The Dolphins started the season 1-7 but have rallied to seize the third AFC wild-card berth and can earn their first playoff spot since 2016 by winning out. The Titans, however, have plenty to play for themselves as they look to lock down top spot in the AFC South.

NFL Point Spread and Betting Analysis

Given how dire things looked following the Dolphins’ brutal start, it will come as no surprise that, in addition to being red-hot SU, Miami has also been a terrific ATS play of late (6-1 in its past seven games). Coupled with the fact that two of those victories came as underdogs, and it’s easy to see why 60 percent of Sports Interaction bettors see value in the Dolphins against the spread. Tennessee is 9-6 ATS for the year but has covered just twice in its last six.

With both teams looking exemplary on the defensive side of the football, Sunday’s total of 40 is among the lowest of Week 17. But you know the public: it sees a number this low and salivates. To wit, 80 percent of Sports Interaction respondents are on the O40 at -110. The Dolphins are 9-6 to the Under so far this season, with six of those coming over their previous eight games. The Titans are 7-8 O/U on the year, with Unders in four of their past five overall.

For as good as the Dolphins’ defence has been (and it has been sensational, holding opponents to 17 or fewer points six times during the winning streak), the offence will need to catch up if Miami is to end its five-year playoff drought. Miami has scored 20 or fewer points in two of its past three games and could have all sorts of problems against a surging Tennessee defensive unit that has allowed an average of 12 points over its past three games.

Tennessee Titans

The Titans have learned to live with the absence of key players all season long – and their depth could be put to the test again this weekend, with wide receivers Julio Jones and Nick Westbrook-Ikhine placed on the reserve/COVID-19 list earlier this week. Should they miss Sunday’s game, Chester Rogers would start opposite A.J. Brown against a brutal Miami defence that has held three straight opponents below 300 total yards.
