NFL Picks: Miami Dolphins vs. Buffalo Bills NFL Betting Odds Week 12: Looking to make it three in a row, the (5-5) Miami Dolphins [-3½] travel north to pay a visit to their AFC East rivals and sports betting odds underdog (3-7) Buffalo Bills [+3½]. This NFL Picks game will kickoff from Ralph Wilson Stadium live on Sunday afternoon beginning at 1 PM ET (10 AM PT) on CBS Sports.
Miami will try to get a much-needed win and sweep the Bills in their season match-up. The first time these rivals met dates back to the NFL Betting Odds Week four, when the Dolphins handed Buffalo an embarrassing 38-10 loss. In that game, Miami rushed for a season-high 250 yards, but that, of course was with Ronnie Brown in the lineup.
Today, the Fins will count on Ricky Williams to carry them home and keep them relevant ion the AFC playoff picture. According to NFL Picks experts and NFL Betting Odds makers at SPORTSBETTING.COM, the OVER/UNDER for this Miami Dolphins vs. Buffalo Bills Week 12 contest has been set at a combined total of 39 points scored.
As Miami tries to repeat as AFC East champs, it now finds itself playing catch-up. Going into this NFL Betting Odds Week 12, the Fins currently trail the New England Patriots by three games in the standings with 6 games remaining in the regular season. Nevertheless, that is far from how Miami looked at the start of the 2009 campaign.
The Fins started their season with three straight losses, but have found a way to turn things around ever since. Miami has won five of seven, giving itself a chance to still be in the division race or in worst-case scenario, have a chance at the AFC wild card.
Ricky Williams’ three touchdowns against the Panthers helped Miami get the 24-17 win last week. "It puts us on the right track," Williams stated. "We have been trying to get here all year, and we finally got here. It's just the next step to where we want to go."
Dolphins’ quarterback Chad Henne will need to make sure his offense is ready to move the sticks on Sunday. However, Henne will have to be careful with this Buffalo defense, which currently leads the AFC with 17 interceptions.
For the Bills, they find themselves in a very bad position going into this NFL Betting Odds Week 12. They’re coming off a heart-breaking loss to the Jaguars 18-15, giving up a touchdown with 56 seconds left in the final quarter last week. The Bills could not pull off the win for their new interim coach, Perry Fewell.
"Emotional week for all of us and this was an emotional loss for us," Fewell said. "I thought our guys fought their hind ends off. They battled down to the wire. We just didn't get it done."
Fewell took over for fired coach Dick Jauron, after his loss to Tennessee on Nov. 15th. Fewell will be making his coaching debut at Ralph Wilson Stadium, with hopes of seeing a positive outcome on the home turf. But Bills fans may slowly be starting to realize that there may not be a light at the end of this year’s tunnel. Miami leads the Bills in the overall series, 57-37-1. They have also won the last three consecutive games against the Bills.
