Bills vs Dolphins NFL Week 11 Thursday Night Betting Lines

Ugh! As in ugly comes to mind as we settle in to handicap the NFL Week 11 Thursday Night Football offering. Long time AFC East foes collide as the Buffalo Bills host the Miami Dolphins under the bright lights in this National Football League prime time match-up. Kickoff for this Jekyl vs. Hyde contest is slated for 8:20 PM ET, on November 15, 2012, from what will be a raucous Ralph Wilson Stadium in Orchard Park, New York.

Buffalo Bills (3-6) Looking to circle the wagons at home

With six teams sitting at 6-3 or better in the American Football League playoff race, Buffalo had better to start to make a move – if they have one in them. After what is best described as a wishy-washy 3-3 start, the Bills have dropped three straight games by a 93-43 combined final count. The silver lining could be that Buffalo hung tough with the Patriots before eventually falling 37-31 in Week 10 action on the road in Foxborough.

Miami Dolphins (4-5) A not so frozen tundra greets the Boys from South Beach

We mentioned that this is a Jekyl vs. Hyde contest as both of these clubs are tough to figure out. While the Bills simply aren’t very good, we aren’t sure just what the Miami Dolphins are. After an impressive 30-9 whitewashing of the New York Jets during Week 8 action, Miami has lost back-to-back matches. They battled hard in a 23-20 road loss to the Colts but were crushed 37-3 at home by the lowly Titans last weekend.

Miami is on a 6-2 recent run in this series that dates back to 1966 (56-39-1 Miami) and they won both games last season (30-23 in Buffalo and 35-8 at home in South Beach). Recently revamped and re-branded, the UWIN.com online sportsbook is our betting lines provider for this bitter rivalry action. The Bills have been posted as razor thin chalk at -1 (-135 = big juice) against the spread and -140 on the money line.

Miami comes in as the underdogs with much friendly juice as they get a +1 (+114) spread line and they are +120 straight up. The O/U is set at what seems to be a rather lofty 45 points – although neither of these teams have offered much in terms of defense lately. Our opinion hasn’t changed – UGH! We would pass here if given the option but – we’ll plug our nose and back the Bills at -1 (-135) with a 10% bankroll bet at UWIN.
