Productive Offseason Leads Public to Backing Miami Dolphins

With so much parity in the NFL, multiple teams that failed to qualify for the postseason in 2021 are poised to leap in the standings this year. One team that was active in the offseason and is expected to boast an improved roster is the Miami Dolphins.

Dolphins Good Bet to Make Playoffs

The Miami Dolphins have been gaining steam as a popular pick to make the playoffs in 2022 for a good reason. General manager Chris Grier went out in the offseason and got their quarterback Tua Tagovailoa some protection, signing coveted tackle Terron Armstead to a long-term contract in free agency.

Grier didn’t stop there. He also gave Tagovailoa another dynamic weapon on offense, trading away draft picks to acquire Tyreek Hill from the Kansas City Chiefs. Hill gives their quarterback a deep threat, in addition to someone who makes plays on his own. Just get him the ball.

It’s hard to argue that the Dolphins aren’t a much better team now than they were at this time last year when they finished just shy of the playoffs with a 9-8 record. This says that the public is likely buying into Tagovailoa enough to be bullish on Miami’s prospects of making the playoffs in 2022.

Miami also accumulated 84% of tickets, which has come in with odds that have remained unchanged since opening at +135. With the current price point and the amount of money flowing in on the Dolphins, Miami is the biggest liability for this wager.
