After opening as an underdog, the Miami Dolphins are now favored heading into Sunday's Hall of Fame game against the Dallas Cowboys. Miami is a 3-point favorite, according to the latest odds from Odds Shark.
Miami initially opened as a 1-1/2-point underdog, but the line shifted in its favor after Dallas quarterback Tony Romo was ruled out of the game. Romo had a cyst removed from his back during the offseason and Jason Garrett decided to hold him out for at least the opening preseason game.
While the line shifted in Miami's favor, the total also changed after Romo was ruled out. The over/under opened at 34, but the total has dropped to 32-1/2.
Miami is the favorite, but if its preseason goes anything like it did a year ago, Dallas may be the better bet. Miami went 0-4 in the preseason last season as well as 0-4 against the spread. The Dolphins could have more success this preseason, however, as they will no longer be breaking in a new coaching staff and rookie quarterback.
