The Oakland Raiders are on a path to capture an AFC West title, but they'll need to defeat the Miami Dolphins to keep the division lead.
The Oakland Raiders hold the AFC West lead, but a charging Denver Broncos team is just one step behind them. The Raiders face the Miami Dolphins this week and won't want to let up in their pursuit of an AFC West title. The next step on that road is a road game against the Miami Dolphins. The 3-8 Dolphins opened as three point favorites over the Raiders, according to Odds Shark. The line has stayed at three points, which makes this game a close call.
After a three-game winning streak, the Dolphins lost to the Dallas Cowboys, 20-19, last week. The Kansas City Chiefs, the Washington Redskins and a cooling off Buffalo Bills are not on the same level as the Cowboys or the Raiders, who are on a three-game winning streak. The over/under for the game opened at 42.5 points and has moved up by just half of a point. The combined points total for the teams' average points comes in at 42.9. This could be close one.
