Carolina (-2) vs MIAMI

Lean – Under 42

This game will feature two of the most aggressive defenses in the NFL as the Dolphins have a league-leading 40% blitz rate and Carolina’s blitz rate is 32% (6th). I expect Cam Newton and Tua Tagovailoa to handle the blitzes differently.

Miami’s offensive line ranks last in pass blocking efficiency and the Panthers have a 29.4% pressure rate (2nd). Tagovailoa will not have any time in the pocket and hasn’t done well when the defense sends five or more pass rushers. Tagovailoa is averaging 5.2 yards per attempt versus the blitz compared to 7.9 yards per attempt when not blitzed.

Chrstian McCaffrey injured his hamstring in the second quarter of week 3, then missed four games, but he has been back on the field the last three weeks. McCaffrey has 21 receptions during the previous three games and is now averaging 2.98 yards per route run. Cam Newton will be able to find McCaffrey sneaking out of the backfield when Brian Flores’s defense decides┬áto blitz.

Our model favors the Dolphins by 0.6 points, with a predicted total of 41.9 points. The matchups do favor Carolina and the under.
