Dolphins Jets Betting – Jets Look To Take Off Against Winless Dolphins Monday Night

Posted by Tony Bryant on 10/14/2011 11:00:18 AM

When the New York Jets left town to open a season-high three-game road trip, they were an undefeated team that was considered a major Super Bowl contender this season. Four weeks later, the Jets return home batter and bruised and suddenly on the outside looking in, in the AFC sports betting playoff picture. For all of the talk in New York about contending for a Super Bowl ring under head coach Rex Ryan, the goal may need to be scaled back somewhat heading in to this week’s game against the Miami Dolphins.

Playoffs? Playoffs? The Jets just need to focus on winning a game. With rumors swirling around the league about the potential unrest in the New York locker room, Ryan sent veteran wide receiver Derrick Mason packing this week in a trade with the Houston Texans. However, Ryan can only move so many players, and it will be on the team to show up on game day and make it happen.

NFL Betting Preview: Miami Dolphins

While the Jets have failed to live up to the high expectations placed on them early this season, Miami hasn’t been able to meet even the smallest expectations with four straight losses to open their season. After a promising start fell short against the New England Patriots opening weekend, the Dolphins have dropped three straight by a combined average of four points, and haven’t found a way to get in the win column. It won’t get any easier coming out of their bye either with a trip to New York, especially considering they will be without quarterback Chad Henne, who was lost for the season in the loss to the San Deigo Chargers. Veteran backup Matt Moore will get the start at quarterback for Miami, but at least things can’t get any worse for a winless team.

While all of the talk this week has been about an offense that has struggled to put up points, perhaps their hasn’t been enough onus put on a defense that has dropped to 26th in the NFL against the run with an average of 134.8 yards allowed per game. In addition to becoming soft defending the rush, New York’s defense hasn’t been able to generate turnovers the way that they did in Ryan’s first two years with the team, and that has led to less chances for the offense. Quarterback Mark Sanchez stepped up in the media this week and tried to rally his team, but the problem is that he hasn’t stepped his game up to back all that talk. The Jets can afford to run the ball more in an effort to jumpstart the league’s 31st-ranked rushing attack, which could help open things up for Sanchez in the passing game.

NFL Betting Preview: Outlook & Pick

While the Jets have struggled on the road this season, they should be able to bounce back at home against a Miami team that hasn’t won a game. The Dolphins are turning to their backup after their first option couldn’t get a win through four sportsbook promo starts, and that doesn’t bode well for them even with the extra week of preparation. For the first time in his three years with the team the seat is heating up for Ryan, and it will be up to the players that he has defended and supported not to let their head coach down.
