Dolphins vs. Jets Total Pick
According to oddsmakers at Bovada.lv, Miami is favored on the road, as the Dolphins are getting odds of -6 points against the Jets. The over/under total for the game is listed at 43 points. Miami has won its last two meetings with the Jets while the two have hit the over in three straight meetings. Sunday’s game takes place from MetLife Stadium in East Rutherford, New Jersey. The game will air live on CBS.
Miami opened the season last weekend with a 19-17 win on the road against the Chargers. The Dolphins went under the 46-point total. Miami was able to ride four field goals from Cody Parkey to get the win, including a 54-yard field goal with 1:05 left to play. The Dolphins were outgained in the loss, 367-336. Miami held the Chargers to just 44 rushing yards, but allowed 323 passing yards. On offense, Jay Ajayi rushed for 122 yards on 28 carries while Jay Cutler had 230 passing yards with a touchdown.
New York is 0-2 to start the season, going 1-1 with the over/under total. The Jets are struggling on both sides of the ball right now as they are allowing 33 points and 412 yards per game so far while posting just 16 points and 258.5 yards per game on offense. Josh McCown has thrown for 353 yards and two touchdowns with two interceptions to lead the offense while Jermaine Kearse has caught 11 passes for 123 yards.
Trends like the over in this one. Aside from the two hitting the over in their last three meetings, the Dolphins have hit the over in six straight division games and in seven of their last nine conference games as well. New York hasn’t looked like a team capable of putting up many points, but I think playing the Miami defense will aid in that. The Jets defense also will likely to struggle to stop Miami’s offense, which has a nice balance of running and deep passing.
