The Miami Dolphins are 1-1 to start the season, but the trouble is brewing. Tua Tagovailoa suffered a rib injury in Week 2 and is listed as “questionable” The Dolphins’ success hinges on whether or not Tagovailoa will be available on Sunday. If not, the Dolphins will have a tough time moving against the Raiders’ defense. If Tua does play, he’ll need a lot of help from his own defense to be successful.

The Las Vegas Raiders have had a hot start to their season, going 2-0 over the first two weeks. Derek Carr looks comfortable in the pocket and the secondary doesn’t look nearly as bad as they did in 2020. The Raiders will get to host the Dolphins on Sunday and are eager to start the season 3-0. With Jon Gruden at the helm of the Raiders, the Dolphins will need to be on their A-game here.

Miami Dolphins vs. Las Vegas Raiders Preview and Trends

It was apparent in Week 2 just how badly the Dolphins need Tua Tagovailoa to succeed. After his exit, the Bills offense decimated the Dolphins, the final score ended 35-0. What we saw in that game was that if Tua Tagovailoa isn’t in, the Dolphins have zero chance of success. However, even if he does play, the defensive showing by Miami was horrific in Week 2. Remember, they only narrowly beat the Patriots in Week 1 as well. Now they’ll face an offense that gets better week after week.

All eyes are on the Raiders to win this one at home, but that’s easier said than done. We’ve seen flashes of Raiders success in the past, only to be followed by regression. If the Raiders want to avoid that, they’ll need a dominant win over the Dolphins here. Miami is known to have a tough defense, one that the Raiders will have to overcome. The game plan should be simple here, focus on the run early on in the game and then target downfield. Henry Ruggs has proven his worth as a wide receiver, it’s time he sees more deep balls thrown to him.

Dolphins vs. Raiders ATS Pick

Dolphins 13 - Raiders 27

With the questions surrounding Tua’s availability on Sunday, this game is tough to call. If Tagovailoa plays, the Dolphins’ chances skyrocket. If not, the chances of them winning this game plummet. Frankly, if Tagovailoa doesn’t play there’s a good chance we see the Dolphins get blown out by the Raiders. However, the last thing the Dolphins would want is to rush Tua back before he’s ready.

We believe that Tua will sit out this game and nurse the bruised ribs. Jacoby Brissett will get the start at quarterback and the Miami offense will sputter. This is a great chance for the Raiders to capitalize and start their season off 3-0. They can’t get lazy here though, as there are no guaranteed wins in the NFL.

Extra Points

1. The Las Vegas Raiders average 391 passing yards per game.

2. Miami WR Will Fuller V has been upgraded to “probable” against the Raiders.

3. The Raiders are 5-1 ATS in their last six games in September.

Best Bet: Las Vegas Raiders -3.5 (-113)
