Jets vs. Dolphins Pick
Will Sunday's matchup in Miami between AFC East rivals the Jets and Dolphins be low-scoring at 1:00PM ET?
According to oddsmakers from online sports book BetDSI, the Dolphins are now 3.5-point home favorites versus the Jets after opening as a 3-point favorite earlier in the week. As for the total, the number opened at 44 and that's where it currently sits.
JETS KEY TRENDS: The Jets have been a great bet when taking on fellow AFC East rivals, going 7-2-1 at the betting window in their last 10 divisional games. They're also 5-0-2 against the spread in their last seven games after accumulating more than 150 yards rushing in their previous game but they've been a poor bet off the bye, going 2-5 against the number in their last seven games following an off week.
DOLPHINS KEY TRENDS: The Dolphins have been a dismal buy for bettors over their last 28 games, covering just eight times over that span. They've also struggled inside the division, going 2-9 at the betting window in their last 11 games versus AFC East opponents. They're also just 5-17 against the spread in their last 22 games against AFC teams overall.
OUR PREDICTION: If Sunday's matchup is like most of the other games between these two teams, then the under should be a solid play. In the last 11 meetings between these two teams, the under has cashed eight times. With Jay Ajayi seeking his third consecutive 200-yard rushing game on Sunday, look for the Dolphins to keep the ball on the ground and try to win the time of possession battle. If they're successful, then the clock should be moving consistently and the scoring should be kept in check.
