Arizona Cardinals vs. Miami Dolphins Preview

The Arizona Cardinals and the Miami Dolphins will both be trying to pick up a win on Sunday when they battle at Hard Rock Stadium.

Oddsmakers currently have the Dolphins listed as 1-point favorites versus the Cardinals, while the game’s total is sitting at 43½.

Last time out for Arizona, they were a 31-23 winner as they battled the Redskins at home. The Cardinals covered in the match as a -2.5-point favorite, while 54 combined points moved the game OVER for totals bettors.

Arizona: 5-6-1 SU,4-8 ATS

Arizona is indebted to David Johnson for keeping its playoff hopes alive. He carried the Cardinals to a crucial, come-from-behind win against the Redskins on Sunday, finishing with 84 rushing and 91 receiving yards, while scoring two touchdowns—with the second being a go-ahead, 25-yard touchdown catch in the opening minutes of the final period.

Johnson now has a total of 15 touchdowns this season, which is just two more away from the franchise record for most scored touchdowns in a single season. The Cardinals, who are now 5-6-1, might see him reach or even break that record in this weekend’s trip to Miami.

The Dolphins defense gave up 496 total yards, including 386 yards passing, in Sunday’s loss to Baltimore.

Still, Arizona can’t let its guard down against Miami, which has only lost once—against Tennessee—throughout four home games this season. Plus, QB Carson Palmer, who threw for 300 yards and three TD passes versus Washington, hasn’t been at his best in hostile environments as eight of his 11 interceptions on the year have come on the road.

Miami: 7-5 SU,6-5-1 ATS

Overflowing with confidence thanks to a six-game run, Miami was expecting to kick off the month of December on a high note by earning its seventh-straight win for the first time since 1985.

The Dolphins suffered their ugliest loss of the season—a 38-6 drubbing at the hands of Baltimore. Right from the start, they already dug their own grave, allowing the Ravens to reach the end zone in their first two possessions and stared at a 24-0 halftime deficit.

Quarterback Ryan Tannehill, who had a season-high of three interceptions, gave Miami its first and only touchdown of the game, connecting with DeVante Parker for an 8-yard pass in the first minute of the final quarter. Tannehill was unsuccessful on his two-point conversion pass, though.

This loss is not the end for the Dolphins. They’re still in position to make the playoffs with four games remaining, the next of which is home game against Arizona, a team that’s defeated them in their previous three meetings.

Arizona Cardinals vs. Miami Dolphins

Free Pick: Arizona Cardinals +1

The Arizona game against Washington was their first cover in six games. This is the time of year when playoff teams go on a streak to make it in and the Cardinals still have enough talent to make a run. Miami looked really bad in a loss at Baltimore to end its six-game win streak. The Dolphins have the look of a team about to fade away and start talking about draft position. Take the better team and either the point or the money line.
