Sunday Night Football Odds

Sunday Night Football for Week 14 is a meeting of two AFC clubs with postseason aspirations, as well as a showdown for two of the league’s top young QBs. Tua Tagovailoa will lead the 8-4 Miami Dolphins on a road trip to take on Justin Herbert and the 6-6 Los Angeles Chargers. The Dolphins are looking to bounce back from a tough loss, but the team remains in great shape for a playoff spot. The Chargers have struggled while dropping three of their last four, and they need to get a move on to maintain pace in the race. Here are the latest odds for Dolphins vs. Chargers in Week 14 and a look at the rest of this year’s SNF slate.

Sunday Night Football odds: Dolphins vs. Chargers lines

The Dolphins were in San Francisco on Sunday as five-point underdogs. Miami struck first with a 75-yard Tua Tagovailoa to Trent Sherfield hookup for a TD, but the 49ers controlled the action from there for a 33-17 victory. The Chargers were at the Raiders as slight underdogs, falling by a score of 27-20 after failing to hold on to a halftime lead.

The loss to the 49ers snapped a five-game winning streak for the Dolphins. The club has emerged as a legitimate postseason contender and is pushing the Bills in the AFC East. The Chargers entered the season as a possible Super Bowl contender. Now 6-6, the inconsistent club finds itself with work to do just to be in the playoff mix.

Miami is 6-6 both against the spread and on totals. Los Angeles has a 7-5 ATS record and checks in at 5-6-1 on the over/under. This will be the first meeting of the two clubs since 2020, a 29-21 home win for Miami, which also has a 19-16 lead in all-time meetings.

The Miami offense was held relatively in check in the loss to the 49ers, but the unit has been potent for much of the season. Tua Tagovailoa is one of the leading candidates to win the MVP award. To date, he has thrown for 2,859 yards and 21 TDs. The Chargers offense was expected to take a leap forward this season. Justin Herbert has had his moments while tossing for 3,339 yards and 20 scores, but he hasn’t lived up to his preseason billing as a potential award winner. Sportsbooks will release Dolphins vs. Chargers player props later this week.

NFL Sunday Night Football betting results 2022-23

Below is the full betting recap for all of the SNF games so far this season. This year’s schedule will wrap up with a matchup to be determined on Jan. 8, 2023.

Week 1: Tampa Bay Buccaneers 19, Dallas Cowboys 3

It was expected to be a shootout in Dallas, but the game went in an entirely different direction. Tampa Bay easily covered as 2.5-point favorites, while the total went well under the 49.5-point bar. Tom Brady threw for a single score in the game, while Dak Prescott exited in the fourth quarter with a hand injury.

Week 2: Green Bay Packers 27, Chicago Bears 10

After a disappointing opening-week loss, the Packers got it together on SNF. The club pulled out to a 24-7 lead at the half and didn’t look back. Green Bay won by a score of 27-10 behind a pair of TD passes from Aaron Rodgers, easily covering as 10.5-point favorites with the total sailing under the 42-point bar.

Week 3: Denver Broncos 11, San Francisco 49ers 10

Jimmy Garoppolo led a 75-yard scoring drive to give the 49ers a 7-0 lead. That would prove to be one of the biggest highlights of a defensive-minded affair, with the Broncos pulling out a late win on a Melvin Gordon one-yard score. San Francisco failed to cover as a 1.5-point favorite, while the total went very far under the 45-point bar.

Week 4: Kansas City Chiefs 41, Tampa Bay Buccaneers 31

In a meeting of two expected Super Bowl contenders, the Chiefs were the ones that looked the part. Kansas City shined against the normally stout Tampa Bay defense, as the Chiefs cruised to a 10-point win. Patrick Mahomes threw for 349 yards, three TDs and one pick. The Chiefs covered as two-point favorites, with the total going over the 47-point line.

Week 5: Baltimore Ravens 19, Cincinnati Bengals 17

It was expected to be a tight battle between the AFC North rivals, and that’s exactly what developed. Justin Tucker closed things out with a 43-yard game-winning field goal as time expired. Baltimore failed to cover as a three-point home favorite, while the under was the correct call on the 47.5-point total.

Week 6: Philadelphia Eagles 26, Dallas Cowboys 17

It was a heavyweight showdown between two NFC East powers. The Eagles raced out to a 20-3 lead at the half, but the Cowboys made things interesting from there before coming up short as Jalen Hurts sealed the deal by leading a late TD drive. Philadelphia covered as a seven-point home favorite, with the total just creeping over the 42.5-point line.

Week 7: Miami Dolphins 16, Pittsburgh Steelers 10

For the first half, the Dolphins completely controlled the action to get out to a 13-0 halftime lead. The Steelers made it a game after the break and closed the gap to 13-10, but ultimately came up short. Pittsburgh got the cover as a seven-point road dog, with the total going under the 44.5-point bar.

Week 8: Buffalo Bills 27, Green Bay Packers 17

The Bills walked onto the home field and dominated the action while getting out to a 24-7 halftime lead. However, the Packers put some garbage-time points on the board to cover the 10.5-point spread in a 27-17 defeat. The under was the correct call on the game-time line of 47 points.

Week 9: Kansas City Chiefs 20, Tennessee Titans 17 (OT)

The Chiefs walked onto the field as huge favorites, but the Titans took control of the game and went into the fourth quarter with a 17-9 lead. Patrick Mahomes and the offense came to life and worked their magic to escape with a field-goal victory. Tennessee covered as a 14-point dog, while under was the correct call on the 45-point total.

Week 10: San Francisco 49ers 22, Los Angeles Chargers 16

The Chargers were eight-point underdogs heading into San Francisco. They managed to take control of the game early and entered halftime with a 16-10 lead. After the break, though, it was all 49ers, as they came back for a 22-16 home win. Los Angeles got the cover as a road dog, while the total landed under the 45.5-point line.

Week 11: Kansas City Chiefs 30, Los Angeles Chargers 27

The Chargers held a 20-16 lead heading into the final quarter, but Patrick Mahomes and company had another comeback up their sleeves. Mahomes threw for two scores, as Kansas City escaped with a 30-27 road victory. Los Angeles got the cover as a 5.5-point dog, with the total sailing over the 53-point line.

Week 12: Philadelphia Eagles 40, Green Bay Packers 33

The Packers visited Philadelphia as pretty sizable underdogs, but they quickly demonstrated that they would be anything but pushovers while battling to a 14-13 lead at the end of the first quarter. The clubs went back and forth the rest of the way, but the Eagles would prove to be too much for Green Bay to handle. Philadelphia just hit the cover as 6.5-point favorites, while the total was well over the 46-point benchmark.

Week 13: Dallas Cowboys 54, Indianapolis Colts 19

Through three quarters of play, this was actually a competitive game. Dallas held a 21-19 lead heading into the fourth quarter. For the final frame, however, the Cowboys exploded for 33 points to exit with a convincing 35-point victory, easily covering as 11-point home favorites. The over/under for the game was 44.5 points. Dallas managed to clear the bar on its own.
