Through 3 Quarters
The Miami Dolphins and the Baltimore Ravens have showed up to the matchup, but their offenses sure haven’t. After three quarters neither squad has the game in the bag, but Miami leads 6-3. So far, this is quite different from their previous head-to-head, which was decided by 49 points.
The Dolphins have a habit of keeping things close this season; the team played four games decided by three or less. Maybe they will pull away, but we predict a narrow margin.

What to Know
The Miami Dolphins will play host again and welcome the Baltimore Ravens to Hard Rock Stadium, where kick-off is scheduled for 8:20 p.m. ET Thursday. The Dolphins are out to stop a four-game streak of losses at home.
Miami was able to grind out a solid victory over the Houston Texans this past Sunday, winning 17-9. The Miami offense checked out after the first half but had enough points banked to take the game anyway. No one had a standout game offensively for Miami, but they got scores from WR Mack Hollins and RB Myles Gaskin.
Miami’s defense was a presence, as it got past Houston’s offensive line to sack QB Tyrod Taylor five times for a total loss of 41 yards. Leading the way was DE Emmanuel Ogbah and his 2.5 sacks. Ogbah now has five sacks this year.
Meanwhile, it may have taken overtime to finish the job, but Baltimore ultimately got the result they were hoping for this past Sunday with a 34-31 win over the Minnesota Vikings. The victory came about even with the Ravens handicapping themselves with 147 penalty yards. Their QB Lamar Jackson did his thing and passed for three TDs and 266 yards on 41 attempts in addition to picking up 120 yards on the ground. Jackson ended up with a passer rating of 134.70.
The Dolphins are expected to lose this next one by 7.5. Those who got lucky with them against the spread this past Sunday might want to hold off on…
