Miami Dolphins at Washington Commanders Betting Preview – Week 13

In Week 13 of the National Football League, the Miami Dolphins are set to play against the Washington Commanders. Currently leading the AFC East, the Dolphins boast an 8-3 record for the season, securing consecutive victories, including a recent win against the Jets on the road.

On the flip side, the Washington Commanders enter the game with a 4-8 season record, having suffered a lopsided defeat on Thanksgiving, marking their third consecutive loss. The Miami Dolphins are -9.5 in this game on the road.

Dolphins Cruising in AFC East Race

The Miami Dolphins enter the game with a comfortable 2.5-game lead in the AFC East and rank as the second-highest scoring team in the NFL, averaging 30.8 points per game. Their offensive talent is evident in both the ground and air attacks, with averages of 285 passing yards and 145 rushing yards per game. A good chunk of their offensive numbers came in the game where they scored 70 points at home against the Denver Broncos.

A notable contributor to the Dolphins’ success is the unexpectedly impressive performance of running back Raheem Mostert, who is just 215 yards away from reaching 1,000 rushing yards this season, accompanied by an impressive 13 touchdowns. The dynamic duo of Tua Tagovailoa has also been a key factor, combining for 88 receptions, 1,324 yards, and 10 touchdowns.

Although playing away in this game, the Dolphins are set for a favorable stretch with three consecutive home games against the Titans, Jets, and Cowboys.

Commanders on Life Support

Meanwhile, the Washington Commanders find themselves in a must-win situation, with head coach Ron Rivera possibly facing job insecurity at the season’s end. With a 4-8 record and a 1-4 performance in home games, the Commanders are in a challenging position.

Quarterback Sam Howell has displayed inconsistency, with 3,339 passing yards, 18 touchdowns, and 13 interceptions this season. Washington, a team ranking in the Top 10 in passing yards, heavily relies on Howell’s arm. Terry McLaurin stands out as the Commanders’ leading receiver, although he has only managed two touchdowns.

Following this game, Washington enjoys a bye week before facing the Rams and Jets away and returning home to host the 49ers and Cowboys.
