Dolphins vs. Patriots odds, picks, line, how to watch, live stream: Model reveals 2022 Week 1 NFL predictions

Tyreek Hill has been arguably the league’s premier big-play receiver over the last six years and his first game in a Miami Dolphins will be in an AFC East matchup with the New England Patriots on Sunday. The Dolphins swept the season series a year ago, including a 17-16 win in Week 1 on the road, but it wasn’t enough to get them into the postseason. As a result, Brian Flores was replaced by Mike McDaniel this offseason. Meanwhile, the Patriots reached the playoffs at 10-7, but were throttled by the Bills in the AFC Wild Card round. It’s a big rivalry matchup to start the season and you can stream the game in select markets on Paramount+.

Kickoff for Dolphins vs. Patriots is set for 1 p.m. ET at Hard Rock Stadium in Miami.

Week 1 NFL picks for Patriots vs. Dolphins

Before tuning into Sunday’s Dolphins vs. Patriots game, you need to see the NFL picks from SportsLine’s advanced computer model. The model, which simulates every NFL game 10,000 times, is up over $7,500 for $100 players on top-rated NFL picks since its inception. The model enters the 2022 NFL season on an incredible 138-97 run on top-rated NFL picks that dates back to the 2017 season. Amazingly, it hasn’t missed a top-rated pick since Week 15 of last season.

The model also ranked in the top 10 on NFLPickWatch four of the past six years on straight-up NFL picks and beat more than 94% of CBS Sports Football Pick’em players four times during that span. Anyone who has followed it is way up.

For Dolphins vs. Patriots, the model is backing Miami to cover as a 3.5-point favorite. Both teams competed for a wild card spot last year and are built around young Alabama quarterbacks, but Miami was the more aggressive of the two teams in giving its young quarterback help this offseason.

Hill produced 7,346 scrimmage yards and 67 total touchdowns in six years with the Chiefs, and now he’ll slot in as the No. 1 wide receiver. His presence should open things up in the middle of the field for slot receiver Jaylen Waddle and tight end Mike Gesicki, giving McDaniel a chance at a dynamic passing game if Tagovailoa can take a big step in his development.

Meanwhile, the Patriots had to make difficult decisions with established starters to deal with salary cap stress and weren’t able to make many additions to aid in Mac Jones’ development. The model predicts that Miami’s defense pesters Jones throughout the day, forcing a couple of turnovers to help the Dolphins cover at home.
