Sunday, Miami dolphins (8-7) head to Nissan Stadium for a 1 p.m. ET kick-off with the Tennessee Titans (10-5). Below we take a look at the Dolphins vs Titans odds and lines, and make our best NFL picks, predictions and betting.
The Titans enter that game after beating the San Francisco 49ers 20-17 as a 3-point underdog on Thursday Night Football in Week 16.
Tennessee are just 3-3 in their last six games, poised to land a playoff berth with a win. However, the Titans face a scorching Dolphins team who will also be in a make-or-die game.
QB Tua Tagovailoa has the league’s No.1 completion percentage, having taken their game to the next level, helping Miami win seven straight games after starting 1-7.

Dolphins at Titans odds, lines, predictions & picks
Dolphins 24, Titans 17
SPRINKLE on the DOLPHINS (+145).
The Titans rank in the top half of the league for opponent completion percentage this season, but in their last three games they haven’t had the same success, placing in the bottom ten.
Considering Tua’s game and the weapons that are finally sane around him, the Dolphins have the playmakers to get the ball rolling. Likewise, their defense is finally approaching its full strength.
Miami having CB Xavier howard shadow Titans WR AJ Brown or even have Howard and Dolphins CB Byron jones The compromise on the star receiver should limit its effectiveness. The 6-foot-1 Howard All-Pro will be an X-factor, dropping under a 60% completion rate when targeted.
If Brown isn’t the same dominant receiver, Titans QB Ryan tannehill and the whole offense will struggle, opening a perfect game for the Dolphins to steal and continue to contend for a playoff berth.
Against the spread
BET on the DOLPHINS +3.5 (-120). The Titans are coming off a huge win and could be ready for a disappointing game. The Titans have 5-3 ATS at home but only 2-3 ATS as home favorites.
Considering the Dolphins’ winning streak wasn’t enough to put them in a basket, mostly beating low-level opponents, it’s always a perfect opportunity to support an ultra-hot Miami team.
BET on the OVER 39.5 (-115).
Since this is the side that gets the juice, sports betting clearly likes it too. The last three true playoff contenders the Dolphins have faced (Bills, Bucs and Colts) have scored 25 points or more.
Miami even gave the Jets 24 points a few weeks ago. Neither team ranks equally in the top ten for opponents’ total yards, so both teams should be able to move the ball with pace.
It’s on the lower end of the total, and with stars on the offensive side, I’d bet more points in this one.
