Minnesota Vikings vs. Miami Dolphins – Week 6 Betting Preview

NFL Bets

The betting odds for the Week 6 matchup between the Minnesota Vikings and Miami Dolphins have shifted significantly in light of the news that Miami is planning to start rookie quarterback Skylar Thompson. The Dolphins have gone from short favorites to decided underdogs, potentially on their way to a three-game losing streak.


Miami’s 3-0 start has been overshadowed by Tua Tagovailoa’s head injuries and the Dolphins’ back-to-back losses with a backup quarterback under center. Minnesota’s three-game winning streak has given it sole possession of first place in the NFC North. The Vikings are favored for the fourth time this season.

Let’s take a look at some key statistics and information about this matchup.
