at Wembley Stadium in Week 4 and though the line opened as the
Raiders +4, bettors should make note as the fave has covered in
five of the last six games in jolly ol’ England.
This season marks the eighth consecutive that the NFL will
hold a game in London, England. In fact, there are three
games to be held on British soil this season with the Atlanta
Falcons and Detroit Lions playing there on Oct. 26 and the
Dallas Cowboys clashing with the Jacksonville Jaguars on Nov.
There are a couple of trends through the first eight games in
London to bear in mind if you’re going to make a wager on the
Dolphins versus Raiders game this weekend.
The favorite has covered in five of the past six matchups and
is 5-3 overall in these games.
Last season, the Vikings shocked the Steelers 34-27 and
covered as 3-point dogs and the 49ers destroyed the Jaguars
42-10 as 10-point favorites.
If you’re looking at totals, the over/under count is 4-4 in
the eight games and the over is on a three-game streak since
the Pats and Rams went over the 46-point total in 2012.
The total in this weekends matchup opened at 41.
