Betting On The Miami Dolphins To Win The Super Bowl
Betting on the Miami Dolphins to win a Super Bowl seems like a pipe dream to anyone that keeps up with the NFL. The Dolphins becoming champions would be the equivalent of a mystical unicorn sighting or in other words a sight not of this world. It didn’t always used to be this way for the team. They have gone to the Super Bowl a handful of times and even won two of them. But those days have long since passed. Their last appearance was in 1984 and it resulted in a loss. DolFans everywhere need more to hold onto than that all too familiar story of their perfect 1972 season. That story, which sounds more like the stuff of legends and tall tales has been told for almost fifty years now to all of those born after that and not around to witness it.
The Miami Dolphins will be at the bottom for odds to win the Super Bowl when the new season starts. As has become the standard, they had a pretty abysmal season in 2019 finishing with a 5-11 record. Their last division championship title of the AFC East occurred in 2008 but it seems that it was a fluke. They rarely make it to the postseason but when they do, they still tank. Their last conference win was over 35 years ago with their last Super Bowl win in 1973. If the team could gain some momentum and a proper strategy, there is no reason why they couldn’t become a Super Bowl contender. As soon as they decide they want more than mediocrity for their legacy, they may step it up and show their fans they have stood by them for all these years for a reason.

2020 Dolphins Player Props
The Miami Dolphins are definitely a team in need of having a spark lit under them. The Dolphins have finished with a below .500 record in four of their last five seasons but with their strong draft and offseason, they could be looking to turn things around. With offensive weapons like DeVante Parker and Mike Gesicki, this team could be turning things around soon.

Online sportsbooks are expecting him to continue on his hot streak in 2020 as his season totals are at 1090.5 yards with the under favored and 6.5 touchdowns which are even.

In 2019 he put up 570 yards and five touchdowns. His 2020 season totals are set at 649.5 yards with both sides even and 4.5 touchdowns with the over favored.
