Los Angeles Rams favored on road vs. Miami Dolphins in Week 8
Rookie QB Tua Tagovailoa and the Miami Dolphins (3-3) host the Los Angeles Rams (5-2) Sunday afternoon of Week 8 at Hard Rock Stadium. The game kicks off in the early window at 1 p.m. ET. Below, we take a look at the early Week 8 betting odds and lines at BetMGM Sportsbook.
The Rams are coming off a dominant 24-10 win over the Chicago Bears on Monday Night Football, to keep pace in the NFC West. The defense has been outstanding this season, and allowed zero touchdowns to the Bears offense in Week 7. QB Jared Goff and the offense have held up their end, too, ranking 10th in total yards per game (385.7).
The Dolphins are transitioning to a new starting quarterback, with Tagovailoa taking over for QB Ryan Fitzpatrick. They had a bye in Week 7, so they've had some extra time to prepare for the Rams, but it's hard to get a rookie ready for the presence of DT Aaron Donald. Miami has looked better than expected, though, jumping out to a 3-3 start.
