After opening as three point underdogs, the lines have swapped in favor of the Oakland Raiders for Sunday's game and they are now favored to beat the Miami Dolphins by 1.5 points.
The swap in the odds happened despite a 22-14 loss on Monday Night Football that was only close because of a Rod Streater touchdown reception from Carson Palmer with less than a minute remaining in the game to cut the lead to eight points. However, despite the loss, the Dolphins were even less impressive in their 30-10 beat down at the hands of the Houston Texans.
The Texans scored 24 points on the Dolphins in the second quarter alone as they took advantage of three Ryan Tannehill interceptions and a Daniel Thomas fumble en route to a resounding victory. The Dolphins initially earned the favor of the odds in the opening lines, likely due to the fact that they will be the home team for a game in which the Raiders will have to travel a very long way.
Bovada lists the Raiders with the largest line in their favorite at 3, while 5Dimes has Oakland favored to win by 1.5 points. Both Sportsbook and TopBet fall in the middle with the Raiders favored to win by 2.5 points.
