Public Betting Trends

According to oddsmakers from online sports book BetNow.eu, the Jets are 3-point favorites to beat the Dolphins. The total, meanwhile, sits at 43.5 points. As of this writing, 65% of the public betting tickets are on the Jets to cover the point spread.

Miami Dolphins

Both coach Adam Gase and Ryan Tannehill praised Kenny Stills after Week 1, saying there is "a lot of trust there." "We know he’s a vertical threat. He showed that again, that he’s still able to do that," Gase said. "There’s [going to be] more underneath and there’s [going to be] more as far as receptions per game go, to where maybe instead of four catches for 100 yards, it might end up being like seven or eight catches, where there might be a couple of shorter throws in there." Tannehill added, "He knows exactly what to do. He’s able to kind of lead that room." Stills was third on Miami with five Week 1 targets but obviously did the most damage with a 4-106-2 line. He'll have a shot at his first 1,000-yard season if this steady progression continues.

New York Jets

Jermaine Kearse (abdomen) is practicing in full for Week 2. It puts Kearse on track to play after sitting out the opener. His return further muddles Sam Darnold's target distribution after spreading it out in Week 1. Kearse's presence should demote Terrelle Pryor to four-wide sets.

Miami

The over is 4-1 in the Dolphins last five road games.

New York

The over is 4-1 in the Jets’ last five home games.

Prediction

The Jets scored 48 points a week ago but they had a 36-yard interception return for a touchdown, a 78-yard punt return for a touchdown, and a 62-yard run for a touchdown in the second half alone. While Sam Darnold was impressive in his pro debut, the Jets aren’t going to generate that many points again this week. The under is 6-2 in the last eight meetings between these two teams when the game is played in New York.
