Ravens vs. Dolphins Week 7 Spread

NFL Gambling – Baltimore Ravens vs. Miami Dolphins

The Baltimore Ravens travel to Miami where they will attempt to defend against the wildcat offense. Online NFL betting fans had better get to know the wildcat offense well. The Cleveland Browns actually used a version of it this past Monday to keep the Super Bowl defending champion New York Giants on their heels.

The offense requires defenses to react differently than a traditional NFL offense. That puts things in favor of some of the BetUS online sportsbook underdogs in the league. The Dolphins have sort of perfected it with superstar running back Ronnie Brown. They beat the Patriots and the Chargers with the offense.

The Baltimore Ravens have no offense. So, expecting them to come up with something like the wildcat offense is expecting too much. The team is still heavily dependent upon the play of its defense. Rookie quarterback Joe Flaaco hasn’t been terrible, but he’s a rookie. That means he’s going to make mistakes here and there. Well, some of those mistakes have cost the Ravens in recent weeks. Baltimore hasn’t been a reliable online betting option so far this season.

Here are the BetUS online sportsbook betting odds for this game.
10/19/2008 1:00 pm est.

Baltimore Ravens + 2 ½ + 105 + 125 O 36 ½ – 110
Miami Dolphins – 2 ½ – 125 – 145 U 36 ½ – 110

Here are a few online wagering trends that might help us find a good online bet in this game.

The Baltimore Ravens are 4 and 1 against the spread in their last 5 games on grass.
The Baltimore Ravens are 0 and 7 against the spread in their last 7 road games versus a team with a losing home record.
The Miami Dolphins are 5 and 2 against the spread in their last 7 games versus a team from the AFC Conference.
The Baltimore Ravens are 2 and 5 against the spread in the last 7 meetings between these two teams.

The Ravens aren’t very good while the Dolphins aren’t that bad. Which team has the upper hand in this game? The Dolphins, of course!

Even though the Ravens still have a very good defense, some better defensive teams haven’t found a way to stop the Dolphins from scoring with the wildcat. That means that the Ravens will have to play even better defense in order to win this game.

I’m not sure that the Ravens can. I don’t think they stop the Dolphins from getting into the end zone. But I do believe that the Dolphins can stop the Ravens from getting into the end zone.

I would normally go ahead and put some money on the BetUS under in this game, but I feel that online wager is shaky.

NFL Week 7 Prediction:

Instead, I’m going to just take the Dolphins against the BetUS online wagering spread of 2 ½ points.
