As of the time of this writing, the status of QB Tua Tagovailoa of the Dolphins is very much up in the air for their Wildcard matchup against division rival Buffalo. The line on this game has come down from 10.5 to 9.5, so some clearly believe Tua will play. We are going to roll with the home team and grab this line right now because even if Tua does play, we are getting the better team at home against a Miami squad that has cratered to finish the season. If Tua doesn’t go, it’s hard to envision the Dolphins being competitive with Skylar Thompson at quarterback. Buffalo will be playing hard for teammate Demar Hamlin and we see the Bills pulling away in the second half. Let’s jump on this line now because this one will jump if Tua is ruled out. We’ll play Buffalo –9.5 at Bovada now.
Prediction: Buffalo Bills (-9.5)
