NFL Betting Online – New England Patriots vs. Miami Dolphins
Randy Moss plus Brandon Marshall plus bad pass defenses equals high-scoring affair. Here are the top 3 reasons to bet the over (47.5) in the Patriots vs. Dolphins NFL betting online game.

NorthBet NFL Game Odds:
New England Patriots -1
Miami Dolphins +1
1. Tom Brady
Tom Brady escalates his performance to near perfection whenever he plays in any of the following scenarios: a playoff game, against a divisional rival, or against Peyton Manning.
In his previous four games against the Dolphins, Brady has thrown a total of 12 touchdowns.
Miami's defense gave up three passing touchdowns a week ago to Mark Sanchez, and you can just about pencil in Brady for a minimum of two scores.
2. New England's Terrible Defense
A defense that used to be one of the best in the NFL just a few years ago has taken an ugly turn.
The Pats' run defense ranks 20th in the NFL and their pass defense is 25th. Ouch.
The duo of Ricky Williams and Ronnie Brown will wear down New England's run defense - a unit that has already allowed 357 yards on the ground.
Miami's Brandon Marshall, who caught 116 yards and a touchdown last week against the Jets, should have a feast against a Patriots defense that has permitted over 260 passing yards per game so far this NFL betting online season.
The previous four matchups between the Pats and Dolphins ended with 43 points (December 2009), 44 points (November 2009), 66 (November 2008) and 51 (September 2008).
Thus far in this NFL online betting season, most AFC East divisional games have ended in high-scoring affairs.
Last week, Miami lost to the New York Jets in a game that totaled 54 points and New England beat the Buffalo Bills 38-30.
NFL Betting Online: Bet on the over (47.5).
