Betting on the Dolphins?

The Dolphins impressed in their preseason opener, soundly defeating the Falcons 34-27 with Josh Rosen leading the offense at the quarterback position. Rosen turned in 13 of 20 passes for 191 yards and one interception.

Dolphins RB Kenyan Drake is questionable and likely won’t play, but fellow RBs Myles Gaskin and Mark Walton are on call and turned in a rushing touchdown apiece in the win.

Betting on the Buccaneers?

The Buccaneers put up a big fight before falling to Pittsburgh 30-28 in Week 1. Veteran backup Ryan Griffin completed 26 of 43 passes for 330 yards and one touchdown after replacing starter Jameis Winston who went 6 of 8 for 40 yards and one touchdown.
