The Miami Dolphins (4-8) host the Philadelphia Eagles (4-8) this Sunday, Dec. 11, at Sun Life Stadium. Miami has won four of its last five games, while the Eagle have lost four of their last five, so Sunday's is a matchup of teams headed in opposite directions.

However, experts across the Web seem split when it comes to picking Sunday's winner. Seven of ESPN's eight panelists to cast votes so far pick the Dolphins to prevail, with Adam Schefter being the lone Eagles believer. CBS' five-man panel is more split, with three votes for Miami and two for Philadelphia. And all four of FOX Sports' experts pick have the Eagles prevailing.

Add it up and that's 10 picks for Miami and seven for Philadelphia across three sites. Considering both teams' play of late, as well as the venue, the closeness of the vote seems a bit surprising.
