The Dolphins host the Los Angeles Chargers as a 16-point underdog at Bovada Sportsbook. Last week, Miami lost its sixth straight both straight up and against the spread, falling to the Dallas Cowboys 31-6 as a 22-point underdog. In their three losses this season, the Dolphins have been outscored 133-16.
The Chargers are coming off a 27-20 upset loss to the Houston Texans as a 3-point favorite to fall to 1-2 SU and 0-2-1 ATS. Los Angeles has now lost back-to-back games as a favorite, but as a road favorite the Chargers are still 7-2 SU and 6-3 ATS in their last nine. As a double-digit favorite, they have won 11 straight at 5-6 ATS.
The Dolphins have dominated this matchup at home, having won eight straight against the Chargers in Miami, while going 5-2 ATS (one game had no odds).
