NFL Week 2 Miami Dolphins vs Baltimore Ravens prediction

Both the Dolphins and Ravens got off to strong starts in Week 1. Miami knocked off the Patriots while the Ravens took care of the Jets in a stress-free victory. This will be a much more difficult matchup for both teams, as the Ravens had serious trouble against Miami’s defense in their previous meeting last season. However, Lamar Jackson and company should see success in this meeting, while the Dolphins could have trouble against a revamped Ravens defense. Let’s take a look at the odds for Sunday’s contest.

Miami Dolphins vs Baltimore Ravens expert picks

We’ve got three standout NFL picks for this week’s clash between Baltimore and Miami, including a 2-star selection for our against the spread selection. 

Against the spread pick: Ravens -3.5 (-110) over Dolphins

We’ve got two AFC teams coming off impressive Week 1 wins here as the Baltimore Ravens host the Miami Dolphins. Baltimore just beat up on the Jets, while the Dolphins dominated the Patriots. For a few reasons, we think the Ravens will be the team that improves to 2-0 here. Miami may have beaten New England by a score of 20-7, but that final score doesn’t really tell the full story. The Fins caught pretty much every break imaginable in that game, including getting a tipped-ball interception on the Pats’ promising opening drive. New England just consistently shot themselves in the foot, and we weren’t actually impressed with anything Miami did.

Tua Tagovailoa was still inconsistent, and the Dolphins still couldn’t run the ball. They averaged just 2.8 yards per carry on 23 attempts as a team. Lamar Jackson looked a bit rusty in the first half after a tumultuous offseason, but he settled in nicely and ended up tossing three touchdown passes in the win over the Jets. Mark Andrews was his usual reliable self and it looks like third-year pro Devin Duvernay could be poised for a bit of a breakout following the Marquise Brown trade. It also looks like JK Dobbins may return here after he logged his first full practice on Wednesday. That would be a massive upgrade for Baltimore’s offense after they used Kenyan Drake as their starting running back in Week 1. Lay the points with the home team.

Over/Under totals pick: Under 44.5 (-110)

The under also makes a lot of sense in this spot. These two teams both won on the backs of their respective defenses last week, as they only allowed 16 total points combined. Joe Flacco attempted a whopping 59 passes against this Ravens defense last week, and the Jets came away with nine points to show for it. Flacco barely cracked 5 YPA against Baltimore’s secondary, and it’s possible they get Marcus Peters back here after he missed Week 1.

The Dolphins on the other hand had Mac Jones rattled last week, and they were able to hold New England’s run game in check. After their run defense struggled last season that was especially encouraging to see. And it could bode well against the Ravens’ run-heavy attack. When these teams played each other last year it was an ugly slugfest that was a 6-3 game after three quarters. We wouldn’t be surprised if we saw something similar here.

Receiving yards prop bet pick: Mark Andrews over 61.5 receiving yards (-110)

Mark Andrews put up a solid Week 1 with 7 targets 5 receptions and 52 yards. He led the entire receiving groups in snaps and targets. The Ravens should welcome JK Dobbins back into the line up this week as he was a full participant in Wednesday’s practice. Dobbins return should come at the expense of Devin Duvernay and possibly Rashod Bateman as the Ravens can rely more on the run, but Andrews never comes off the field in either situation.

The Dolphins graded out the worst in Week 1 against Patriots slot receiver Jakobi Meyers who finished with a team-high 55 yards. Andrews operates primarily out of the slot and this line is well below his 2021 season average of 80 ypg and people will continue to sleep on the Jets defense. We expect Andrews to return to his 2021 form against a Dolphins defense that ranked 24th in coverage and tackling. This is an alt-line play that could become very exciting at 70+ and 80+ if you’re searching for juicier odds.
