Patriots vs. Dolphins odds, picks, line, how to watch, live stream: Model reveals Week 18 NFL prediction

Two AFC East rivals collide when the Miami Dolphins host the New England Patriots on Sunday afternoon. The Patriots scored 50 points last week in a win over the Jaguars, while the Dolphins snapped a seven-game win streak with a lopsided loss against the Titans. The Patriots could win their 12th AFC East title in 13 years with a win and some help. New England (10-6) can clinch the division with a win and a Bills loss or tie to the Jets. In select markets, you can stream the game on Paramount+.

Kickoff is set for 4:25 p.m. ET from Hard Rock Stadium in Miami Gardens, Florida. Caesars Sportsbook lists New England as a six-point favorites in the latest Patriots vs. Dolphins odds. The over-under for total points scored is 41. In select markets, Sunday’s matchup can be seen live on CBS and streamed live on Paramount+ with their must-have Premium plan.

Week 18 NFL picks for Dolphins vs. Patriots

Before you tune in to Sunday’s Patriots vs. Dolphins game, you need to see the NFL picks from SportsLine’s advanced computer model. The model, which simulates every NFL game 10,000 times, is up over $7,200 for $100 players on top-rated NFL picks since its inception six-plus years ago. The model enters Week 18 of the 2021 season on an incredible 135-96 run on top-rated NFL picks that dates back to the 2017 season.

The model also ranked in the top 10 on NFLPickWatch four of the past five years on straight-up NFL picks and beat more than 94 percent of CBS Sports Football Pick’em players four times during that span. Anyone who has followed it is way up.

For Dolphins vs. Patriots, the model is backing the Patriots to cover the spread on the road. After going 7-9 a season ago and generally struggling in their first season without Tom Brady, it looked like the Patriots might be in for more of the same when they opened the season with a 17-16 loss to the Dolphins.

However, rookie quarterback Mac Jones learned the ropes relatively quickly and has delivered reliably steady performances while Bill Belichick’s defense has been dominant. New England ranks first in the NFL in scoring defense (16.9 points per game), third in total defense and third in takeaways (30), which could be a big problem for a Miami offense that has turned the ball over 26 times.

The Dolphins have turned the ball over multiple times in eight games this season, while the Patriots have generated at least three turnovers in six different games. The model sees the Patriots generating a couple of turnovers on average, one of the main reasons why the model says all the value is on the Patriots and also why the under hits well over 50 percent of the time.
