The Miami Dolphins will carry pretty solid expectations heading into the 2024 regular season, at least judging by early betting lines.

The opening lines from the DraftKings Sportsbook have the Dolphins favored in each of their first seven games and 10 of their first 13.

The Dolphins' biggest opening point spread comes against the New England Patriots in the Week 12 game at Hard Rock Stadium, with Miami favored by seven points.

Conversely, the Dolphins are never worse than a three-point underdog, which happens three times per the opening lines.

Here's the full rundown of the Dolphins' opening lines:


Week 1, vs. Jacksonville — Dolphins favored by 3.5, over/under 49.5
