Dolphins vs. Bills 2013 odds: Miami favored on the road

Miami is hoping to find its way into the playoffs, likely needing a win in Buffalo to make that dream a reality.

The Miami Dolphins are battling for the last wild card spot in the AFC playoffs, and will take their fight on the road Sunday to face the Buffalo Bills at Ralph Wilson Stadium.

Miami has been installed as a 2.5-point favorite over Buffalo, according to The over/under is 43.

The Doplhins are coming off a huge 24-20 win over the New England Patriots last weekend, moving them to 8-6 and keeping pace with the Baltimore Ravens for the sixth seed. Baltimore wins the tiebreaker because it beat Miami earlier in the season.

Should the Dolphins win their final two games, they would need either the Patriots to lose out or the Ravens to fall against either the Patriots or Cincinnati Bengals. Miami is seeking its first playoff berth since 2008.

The Bills are simply playing out the string at 5-9. Buffalo's main concern is watching E.J. Manuel and the other young players, hoping to see development before the season comes to a close.
