Believe it or not, Dolphins favored at home


Dolfans have one more chance to witness a rarity.

The Miami Dolphins will play their home finale against the Detroit Lions, and AccuScore is predicting a comfortable victory. The Dolphins have won in Sun Life Stadium just once this season and are another defeat away from matching the worst franchise home record.

The Dolphins beat the Lions in 70 percent of AccuScore's simulations by an average of seven points.

When running backs Ricky Williams and Ronnie Brown averaged 4.5 yards a carry in AccuScore's simulations, the Dolphins won 81 percent of the time. When the Lions held them to 3 yards a carry, the Dolphins slid to 48 percent favorites.
