    Again, it blows my mind how the Chargers are so overrated year after year.

    I agree. Their records starting in 2010... 9-7, 8-8, 7-9, 9-7, 9-7, 4-12, 5-11 and right now 0-1. Hardly the showing of an upper tier team over the last 7 years. No way people would give Tannehill that length of time with those records but in the media they talk HoF for Rivers.

    Rivers is good, but I agree with the excessive love for the Chargers. Nobody has any game tape this year to go off of which makes the Fins look worse. They are prob analyzing LAC game tape vs Fins preseason. Of course itll look like crap.

    I agree the Chargers are vastly overrated. I also agree the Phins are being underestimated and that Cutler is probably going to do better than many think.

    But this will be a weird game for Miami. The rust of game 1 combined with the mental burdens of Irma aftermath might be too much, though not necessarily an indicator of how the season will go if the game does go badly. And if Gase gets his team out with a W, it will be another testament to not just his coaching brilliance, but his winning at life.

    During a typical year we would win this game being we completely own the Chargers, and being out in the west coast for a couple weeks now, i think we still win this game easily

    Strong WRs and a seam threat TE, along with a workhorse RB and you think this team is overrated? Personally, I have 3 Chargers starting in my money league. This is going to be a shootout.

    Dolphins are better than the broncos.....Bronco's ran for 140 on the CHARGERS.....Miami will do that or more....this is easy money.

    Dolphins win straight up with ease....points are a bonus.

    Simple....better offense....Miami will run all over them...Cutler will burn them deep with Parker, Stills & Grant....yes I said Grant.

    I believe Miami made the playoffs last year....and the Bronco's?

    Actually the point spread has little to do with one team being better than the other. Point spreads change based on the number of bets being placed on one team. The point spread will increase or decrease to even out the monies being bet. The book makers don't care who wins, only that that money balances.

    Watched the Chargers replay tonight on NFL network. They look like a good team to me.

    Lots of salt will be flowing from this forum come Sunday. That's not to say I think we lose. Miami has the Charger's number for some reason. But it isn't going to be this roll over game you all are expecting.

    Having already played a real regular season game is a MONSTER advantage imo. The rust is gone, the stamina improves, the speed of the game settles down. Even in beer league hockey the difference from game 1 to game 2 is incredible hahah. But for real I think we will have a tough time mentally in this game, guys have been away from home for a long time, nothing is routine here like during normal weeks. A very unfortunate break for us.

    We're also lucky to be facing them in the early installment of Gus Bradley's defense. (Un)rest assured I'm sure Gase is quite familiar with the defensive concepts and scheme.

    If we lose this Chargers game it's really going to be a big kick in the crotch to start the season. We need to start out fast. A win is a MUST

    Have to agree. It's not like the Chargers are going to be tired from one. game. It's more likely they will be sharper than us.

    Aren't home teams generally give a 3 point bump anyways?

    That's sort of a common myth too... as SCfinfan said earlier it's all about the projected balance of money bet. If a linemaker is expecting $1,000 to be bet on a game he's setting the line at what he expects it will take to get $500 bet on each side. It's not about the ranking of the teams as much as it's about a gauge on what you expect the betting public to respond to the line. If you think bettors are adding 3 points than the line setter does the same. Again it really has nothing to do with what they think the final score will be. It's all about being able to get as close to a balanced ledger as possible. You want to be able to take the losing money bet, pay the winners and keep the 10% vig for yourself. If your ledger has too much money bet on oneside of the line you run the risk of not getting enough money from the losing bets to pay off a vast majority of the winning bets and then you have to pay the diffence from your own pocket. Of course you're not going to always get balance that's why you see the line gradually nudged one direction or another during the week to entice more action on the weak side of the bets. Over the course of 16 NFL games during the week if you can keep the balance in a healthy range on most of the games you should make enough money over the course of a week to pay the winners and still make a profit.

    I have a hard time believing it's operated like that. Some guy in a tiny windowless room who really, really hates the Dolphins makes more sense. Same guy does all the power rankings too.

    just saying Gordon vs our LB's and..Bosa and Ingram vs that O-Line...Rivers vs that Secondary...let's not pretend Chargers being favorites is totally absurd.
