    Finally some more good news about us in the media. They must think a lot of us.

    So you're saying they are predicting 7 to 8 wins but we should expect much, MUCH worse?

    Worse?!?!??! Here is an exercise I enjoy. I find a sports writer for every team Miami plays, get THEIR predictions of the game with Miami, and come up with a record. Since our opponents are always prejudiced (as Miami fans are), it's interesting to get their opinions. For 2017, our opponents come up with Miami going 2-14, with the only two wins being splits with the Bills and Jets. So, 2-14 is the worst record I can find.

    It's not too far off. If we don't start off hot, we don't stand a chance down the stretch with our schedule.

    Take it with a grain of salt, these are the same people who predicted that Clinton would be President using statistics.

    Which, no offense, is a mark against 538. Vegas lines are meant to stimulate betting; they are not a reliable predictor of outcomes.

    Like I said, 9 wins would be amazing...for this team, this year. Way too many variables.

    So if you bet $50 on the over what would you win?

    With a jets sweep and bills split/sweep that's 3-4, 4-5 more from the remaining 12 games, seems doable for over, definitely would not bet on that though, cutler too much of a wildcard for me

    I can't believe no one posting in this thread thinks the Phins will win 8 games.

    The over is easy money.

    Read the quote below and believe it !

    The Vegas lines are the smartest thing you'll find out there. If they were easy to beat, they'd be out of business. The fact that it's even for the over but -130 for the under means they're stimulating the over because they think it's going to be under. And I think they're right. Too many injuries and trouble for a team that wasn't that hot to begin with.

    Which injuries are going to crater the season? Really, I'd like to know, because last year half the starting OL and defense ended up on IR, not to mention our QB missing a quarter of the season, and the Fins still made the playoffs.

    If we are gonna play with a lot of tempo I will take the over. Although we are always gonna be one dump on the shoulder away from losing our qb. Cutlers far from durable

    Only 7 more wins out of the next 15 to beat Vegas' odds.
