Experts share their picks for the Patriots Week 8 matchup against the Miami Dolphins, presented by SERVPRO.

Mike Reiss, ESPN:

Pick: Patriots 24, Dolphins 20

With a boost of belief after last week's win, the Patriots might be catching the banged-up Dolphins at the right time. If Tyreek Hill (hip) is less than 100%, that would be a significant development.

Ali Bhanpuri, Dolphins 26, Patriots 18

Brooke Cersosimo, Dolphins 30, Patriots 20

Dan Parr, Dolphins 28, Patriots 18

Gennaro Filice, Dolphins 35, Patriots 13

Tom Blair, Dolphins 30, Patriots 20

Why Brooke is taking the Dolphins: The Patriots are coming off their best performance of the season, a home win over the Bills in which Mac Jones looked like a competent NFL quarterback. Can he build on that success against another division foe Sunday? It's possible against a Dolphins defense that ranks 27th in scoring. But even so, I don't expect the Pats to keep up with Tua Tagovailoa, Raheem Mostert and the "Blur Brothers." Miami's two losses have come against teams with winning records and on the road (Bills in Week 4 and Eagles this past Sunday). The Patriots are well below .500, and the game will be played in South Beach -- a winning recipe for Mike McDaniel's group. Plus, Tua is 5-0 in his career against Bill Belichick. The only other quarterback with as many wins vs. Belichick? Hall of Famer Warren Moon (5-1).

Pete Prisco, CBS Sports:

Pick: Dolphins 26, Patriots 21

The Patriots are coming off an impressive home victory over the Bills where Mac Jones showed some life. The Dolphins lost to the Eagles Sunday night in a game where the offense scored just one touchdown. New England slowed Miami in the first meeting. That same strategy will keep them in this game. It's closer than you think.

Mike Florio: Dolphins 27, Patriots 20

Chris Simms: Dolphins 24, Patriots 20

Paul Perillo,

Pick: Dolphins 27, Patriots 20

The Dolphins are dealing with a boatload of injuries but Miami remains a house of horrors for the Patriots.

Mike Dussault,

Pick: Patriots 27, Dolphins 24

The Dolphins injuries have helped open the door for a Patriots team coming off an inspiring win. Tyreek Hill's potential absence is a game-changer  as Pats pull off a season-changing upset in Miami.

Evan Lazar,

Pick: Dolphins 27, Patriots 24

I'm trying to talk myself into picking the Patriots, especially with Miami's injuries. But that stadium is a house of horrors for the Patriots, and the Dolphins should have Tua and Hill. Miami has just enough offense to out-score the Patriots.
