ACTION REPORT

PointsBet Creative

There’s still a little over two months before the NFL season kicks off. To help speed up the timeline, we’re starting daily NFL betting reports. We’ll be highlighting the action for individual teams in four Hustles per week, sorting them out by division.

We continue our tour around the AFC East with the Dolphins.

SUPER BOWL
Odds: Opened +4000 (T-12th), currently +2500 (T-10th)
Action: 2.6% tickets (13th), 3.9% handle (10th)

WIN TOTAL
Odds: 9.5 (Over -115, Under -105)
Action: Over 82% tickets, Over 80% handle

DIVISION
Odds: Opened +375 (T-2nd), currently +325 (3rd)
Action: 27.0% tickets (3rd among AFC East teams), 17.8% handle (3rd)

PERUSING THE PLAYERS

Clients are not buying Tua Tagovailoa as a true MVP candidate so far, even though the lefty has the ninth-lowest odds at +1900. Miami’s quarterback has snagged only 0.9% of the tickets (T-19th) and 0.4% of the handle (24th).

The Dolphins are the only team to have two players in the top-10 for handle for Defensive Player of the Year: Bradley Chubb (+6000) is fourth at 7.4% and Jaelan Phillips (+2200) is sixth at 4.0%.

TRADER’S TAKE: “The Dolphins look to exceed their win total from last year by making minor improvements on defense, including adding CB Jalen Ramsey and getting a full season of a strong edge rusher in Chubb. But I’m not buying the Dolphins as a Super Bowl sleeper because I don’t think Tua can stay healthy for a full season and be consistent enough under center.”

EXPERT PICKS

Ariel Epstein and Dan Parisi have dug up some plays from the diamond, while Max Meyer has a WNBA bet up his sleeve.

THE PROP QUEEN

Red Sox SP Garrett Whitlock Over 4.5 K's (-135) [7:10 p.m. ET]
"Whitlock has gone over this prop in 4 of 5 vs. high K-rate teams. Eleven of the past 14 righty starters have gone over their K prop against the Marlins."
Phillies Moneyline (-130) @ Cubs [8:05 p.m. ET]
"The Phillies have won 8 of their last 9 road games, and send out a red-hot Ranger Suarez (1.04 ERA in last 4 starts). Cubs starter Jameson Taillon has a 6.71 ERA this season, and has given up 12 runs in last two starts vs. Philly."

THE AGREEABLE ACE

Padres Run Line -1.5 (-110) @ Pirates [7:10 p.m. ET]
"The Padres continue to leave runners stranded on base, but they love hitting lefties. With Rich Hill on the mound, the Pirates could be out of this ballgame early."

THE SENIOR EDITOR

New York Liberty -5.5 (-110) @ Connecticut Sun [7 p.m. ET]
“The Sun have ripped off two 20-point wins in the first two games of Brionna Jones’ absence, but they came vs. two weaker opponents. I think they’ll really miss her size against a dynamite Liberty frontcourt.”

BOOOO YORK BASEBALL

MARKET MOVERS

PointsBet Creative

After last night’s 2-1 loss to the Brewers, the Mets are now 35-43 and a whopping 16 games behind the Braves in the NL East standings. New York has lost 16 of its last 21 contests, and 11 of those have been thanks to a blown lead.

The Mets have been the third-least profitable ❌ moneyline team this season. Only the Athletics and Royals, the teams with the worst records in MLB, have lost more money.

But is this the time to buy low on the team with the highest payroll in baseball? After all, these are the Mets’ longest World Series odds so far this season.

LIGHTS, CAMERA, ACC-TION

BACK TO SCHOOL

Dabo Swinney and Clemson have won seven of the past eight ACC titles.

Summer and schoolusually don’t mix too well, but in this instance, it’s an ideal time to take a look at the college football landscape.

We’ll be suggesting our favorite win total bets, looking at conference odds and taking a look at key players for Heisman futures in every Power Five conference.

This week belongs to the ACC (plus Notre Dame ☘️ for win totals), and let’s start off with an over that has caught Max Meyer’s eye.

Clemson Over 9.5 Wins (-160)

The juice is a bitter pill to swallow, but I’d still take the over if this win total was 10. Here are a few reasons why…

Garrett Riley as the New Offensive Coordinator
The same guy who turned Max Duggan into a Heisman finalist will now be working with former 5-star Cade Klubnik. Riley’s playcalling should open up an offense that has had its fair share of issues in recent seasons.

Continuity on Defense
It was a tough debut for Wes Goodwin at defensive coordinator after he took over for Brent Venables, with growing pains implementing his system and a rash of injuries on the defensive line. He has eight returning starters, though, and those players have another year of familiarity of Goodwin’s scheme under their belts.

Favorable Schedule
Clemson’s three toughest games (Florida State, Notre Dame and North Carolina) are all at home. Its toughest road affair (at Miami) comes after a bye week. Clemson’s first three games (at Duke, Charleston Southern, FAU) don’t feature a strong defense, so will have time to work out the kinks of Riley’s new offense.
