Miami suffered through its third consecutive losing season in 2011 and, according to the latest Miami Dolphins 2012 NFL Predictions, it should prepare for a fourth this year. Sportsbook.ag has the Fins favored, at -170 odds, to win fewer than 7.5 games, and it also sees the club finishing dead last in the AFC East. Miami is drawing +1200 odds to win the division and +2000 odds to win the AFC Championship. Super Bowl Odds at the offshore odds maker do not anticipate the Dolphins making a run at the Lombardi either. Miami is a +5000 moneyline play to win the championship game, which is better odds than, say, teams like the Vikings and Rams are getting, but nowhere near the +450 line the Patriots are presently attached to.
Miami started the 2011 season in horrific fashion, losing its first seven games; however, it did regroup down the stretch. The Dolphins won six of their last nine games to finish at 6-10. The late push was not enough to save the job of Head Coach Tony Sparano, though, as he got the ax with three games remaining on the schedule.
With a new coach in Joe Philbin and new offensive and defensive coordinators in Mike Sherman and Kevin Coyle, many believe the Dolphins have the leadership and talent in place to experience a quick turnaround. Cantor Gaming, which released point spreads for every 2012 NFL regular season game through week 16, is among those predicting a Miami resurgence. The Vegas based odds maker has the Dolphins, who face one of the softer lineups in the league, favored in 10 games.
