Why Bet on the Miami Dolphins?
Since ending their preseason run and opening game on a positive note, the Miami Dolphins have been on a downward spiral now riding a four-game losing streak. This is an urgent indication for change for coach Brian Flores and the rest of the squad struggle to find their stride this 2021 season.
In their most recent outing, they fell in the hands of the Tampa Bay Buccaneers 45 to 17. The team recorded 301 total yards but was overshadowed by the Bucs’ 558 total yards. It’s also worth noting that the Dolphins gave up 2 turnovers in the game, emphasizing their ball protecting abilities that night.
Quarterback Jacoby Brissett recorded 275 yards on 27-of-39 passing on top of 2 touchdowns and an interception. Overall, it was a respectable performance for the quarterback. Myles Gaskin had a team-high 74 yards and 2 touchdowns on 10 receptions, while Preston Williams was the team’s second-best with 60 yards and 3 receptions. But on the rushing end, things were slow for the Dolphins with Myles Gaskin topping the list with just 25 yards and 5 carries.
Defensively, Jerome Baker topped the unit with 8 tackles (7 solo) and a sack. Jaelan Phillips was the only other player to record a sack on top of his 3 solo tackles. There was a lack of urgency on defense, which led to the Buccaneers pulling away. Furthermore, by the end of the game, the Dolphins failed to find a defensive interception.
The Miami Dolphins have a notably healthy squad in this weekend’s matchup. Only DeVante Parker is still out of the list and continues to recover from a hamstring injury. Other than the wide receiver, there are no notable injuries that will trouble Brian Flores, and having a fit squad should be enough to take the slight advantage over the Jaguars.
Why Bet on the Indianapolis Colts?
Meanwhile, the Jaguars face issues of their own. Although the team came close to the first win in Week 4, they failed to capitalize on the opportunity and lost to the Bengals 24-21. This was followed by their most recent loss against the Titans, 37-19.
In their previous losing efforts, the Jaguars outperformed their opponents in both total yards and total rushing yards. The team was ahead by almost 100 total yards and recorded over 10 rushing yards more than the Titans. However, this wasn’t enough to take the game after a fair share of errors that included 2 turnovers.
Trevor Lawrence ran the Jaguars’ offense that night. He finished his stint with 273 yards, 1 touchdown, and an interception on 23-of-33 passing. It was a slow afternoon for the receiving corps, with Jacob Hollister being the only man to find the end zone after 1 yard and 1 touchdown in a single reception. The rushing play bought the team some much-needed life in the wake of James Robinson’s performance. The running back topped the squad with 149 rushing yards and 1 touchdown in 18 carries. Trevor Lawrence also saw a scoring opportunity that brought him another touchdown in 28 yards and 7 carries.
It was a busy game for the defensive end. The trio of Josh Allen, Davon Hamilton, and Andrew Wingard produced 5 solo tackles each, while Rayshawn Jenkins and Damien Wilson had 4 solo tackles apiece. K’Lavon Chaisson and Dawuane Smoot had 1 sack each, while the latter shared a sack assist with Josh Allen.
Both offense and defense are expected to take injury hits in the upcoming game. Brandon Linder is on the questionable list after getting carted off with a knee injury last weekend, while Myles Jack might be out due to a back injury.

Dolphins vs. Jaguars Expert Betting Predictions
The Dolphins have won this season so far, and it was an away game against the Patriots. Now that they take on the Jaguars in unfamiliar territory for both sides, we might find a more comfortable Miami team in front of us. There’s more potential to be unlocked from this team, but it has to happen now if they want to compete for a playoff spot this season.
Meanwhile, the Jaguars face adversity following a lengthy losing streak. Consistency is also an issue for the team. There’s plenty of talent to be found here, but erratic performances affected the team hard. Covering the spread should be less of a problem, but expect the Jaguars to feel the pressure in this one.
