DOLPHINS JETS ODDS: SPREAD, MONEYLINE, OVER/UNDER

When using the odds table above, click the dropdown menu and select the type of bet you wish to make. 

Wagering on the point spread is when you wager on how many points a team will win or lose by. A “plus” sign in front of the spread is the underdog, and a “minus” sign is the favorite. The Dolphins would need at least a four-point win if you bet on Miami to cover the point spread (-3). A spread bet on the Jets would win if New York wins the game or loses by two points or fewer. When there is a flat number like this one (-3) a push comes into play.

Betting the moneyline is simply betting on which particular team will win a game.

The total is the number of combined points the two teams will score. Bettors can choose to bet the over or under on how many total points will be scored in the game.

The weather isn’t expected to have much of an impact on this matchup, as the temperature is expected to settle in at 60 degrees by kickoff. You should be wary of allowing the potential weather to impact your handicap. Games with lots of rain and snow usually drive down totals but doesn’t always mean it will go Under. Sportsbooks obviously adjust their lines based on weather, so it’s up to the bettor to decide if the book adjusted the line enough.

DOLPHINS VS. JETS BETTING INSIGHTS

Why Dolphins Can Cover The Spread

Teddy Bridgewater will start at quarterback for the Dolphin’s pass-heavy offense against a Jets defense that has yielded the NFL’s ninth-most yards per pass attempt (7.3) and ninth-most pass TDs (7). The Jets are also struggling in pass-rush producing the league’s 12th-fewest sacks (8). The positive matchup for Miami combined with Mike McDaniel’s ability to scheme receivers Tyreek Hill and Jaylen Waddle for quick completions, set up the Dolphins to put a big number up on the Jets.

Why Jets Can Cover The Spread

The Jets passing game has been impressive in 2022. New York has thrown for 1,170 passing yards in four games (292.5 YPG) this season (fourth-best in NFL). The matchup against the Dolphins bodes well for them as Miami has allowed 299.2 passing yards per game this season (second worst in NFL). The Jets defense came to play in Week 4 accounting for four INT’s. New York is 5-1 ATS in last six home games vs. teams above .500.

Reasons To Bet The Over

Teddy Bridgewater will try to replicate what Tua did under center as Tagovailoa ranks second in completion percentage and touchdowns on deep throws. He is also top five in PFF’s passing grade both overall and on deep passes. Bridgewater targeted Tyreek a team-high nine times, and the duo connected for team highs in receptions (6), yards (109), and first downs (4).

Only the Commanders have conceded more touchdowns to wide receivers than the Jets. Jaylen Waddle ranks just barely behind Hill in team Air Yards share (33.4%) and is averaging only two fewer targets per game than Tyreek. With the Jets likely trailing in this game, look for more pass attempts than usual from them. The additional pass attempts paired with Miami’s weakness on defense being in the secondary, should equal a higher scoring affair. Miami is giving up the fifth-most receiving yards to opposing wide receivers thus far in 2022.

Reasons To Bet The Under

Miami ranks dead last in average play-clock seconds remaining (6.0), and their contests produce the eighth-fewest combined plays (122). Dolphin’s games average the 10th-most total points, but only one of four has truly featured a lot of points. Miami is quietly averaging only 56.8 plays per game.

We know that the Jets’ offense can be inconsistent with Zach Wilson. New York looked competent down the stretch in a come-from-behind win in Pittsburgh but had plenty of shaky moments as well. The Jets did pivot from a throw-heavy and fast-paced approach last week. They registered only the 26th-most play-clock seconds remaining with Wilson (7.5) down from 12th under Joe Flacco (9.7). Jets games led the league in average combined plays through three weeks (138.7) before dipping and registering a still respectable 127 in Pittsburgh. Facing the low play volume Dolphins can cause this game to produce few points.

Dolphins vs. Jets props: Matchups to watch

Jets Running Backs vs Dolphins LBs

This matchup should be an interesting one from a receiving yards perspective. Breece Hall over-took Michael Carter as the Jets lead back in Week 4 out-snapping Carter 46 to 31 and out-touching him 19 to 11. Albeit tough to run on so far, the Dolphins have allowed out the league’s fifth-most receptions (25) to enemy RBs, while Hall already ranks second among NFL running backs in targets (28). New York is likely to be running a lot of passing plays in negative game-script causing a lot of Wilson check downs to his RB’s.

  • Breece Hall scrimmage yards prop: O/U / ()

Dolphins Wide Receivers vs. Jets CBs

The Jets have allowed the second-most receiving TD’s to opposing WR’s in 2022. It’s interesting to note this production comes with the Jets corners having faced the third-fewest targets per game to opposing wideouts. We know the Dolphins strength is their WRs. Expect Miami to dial up plenty of pass plays on Sunday.

  • Tyreek Hill anytime TD prop:
  • Jaylen Waddle anytime TD prop:

FINAL THOUGHTS

With the Dolphins having a full week of practice knowing Teddy Bridgewater will be their starting quarterback, tells me they will be prepared and ready to go for this matchup. It is a division game, but the Dolphins are more than a field goal better than the Jets. Good luck betting Dolphins Jets odds this week.

Best of luck handicapping Dolphins Jets odds in Week 5.
