Dolphins Jets Betting – Jets Look To Bounce Back Against Dolphins Sunday
After watching his New York Jets get dismantled by the New England Patriots with sole possession of the division lead on the line in last week’s Monday night match up, head coach Rex Ryan admitted his team got handed a beating. The second-year man spoke about how his team had been humiliated, but that if a rematch was played this week between them and the Patriots, that the Jets would be ready to bounce back with a statement. Ryan and his players are furious. That doesn’t bode well for his team’s week 14 opponents, the visiting Miami Dolphins.
The Dolphins are coming off a surprising 13-10 home loss to the Cleveland Browns, and despite a 5-1 record away from home, will be hard-pressed to win another. Miami’s final two road games are this week at the Jets, and in the season finale at the Patriots.
Why To Bet On The Dolphins
Miami has been terrific on the road this season with five wins in six contests, compared to just one win in six tries away from home. Inconsistency has plagued the Dolphins all year, as they have failed to string together consecutive wins since opening 2-0, but by the same token they haven’t lost two straight since before their bye. Turnovers were Miam’s biggest problem last week, as quarterback Chad Henne threw one touchdown compared to three interceptions in the loss to the Browns. If the Dolphins can do a better betting on NFL job of taking care of the football, they could keep this one close.
Why To Bet On The Jets
Less than a week after being blown away by New England with sole possession of the division lead on the line, Ryan and his Jets understand very well that they will have to make a statement. New York has not lost consecutive games this year, and could still win the AFC East with a strong finish. The Jets tamed the Dolphins 31-23 when these teams met earlier this season, and haven’t lost at home since the end of October. New York’s defense allowed the Patriots to tally 45 points in the team’s worst loss in 24 years, and will be excited to prove that performance was simply an aberration.
Quarterbacck Mark Sanchez learned a valuable lesson watching Tom Brady from the sidelines on Monday, and should be ready to bounce back. The Jets could afford to let their sophomore signal-caller play the role of game manager and rely more on LaDanian Tomlinson and Shone Green in the running game. Tomlinson and Greene have combined for 4.4 yards per carry, and Miami’s defense has been better against the pass than run.
Outlook & Pick
The Jets have yet to lose consecutive games this season, and it’s hard to imagine them dropping a second straight against an inconsistent Dolphins’ team that has overachieved on the road this season. New York will get back in the football betting win column with an emphatic, statement victory.
