The Jaguars are 7-5 and one game ahead of the Dolphins who are 6-6. Jacksonville is a slight home favorite in NFL betting.
Bet on football odds have Jacksonville as a 2.5 point home favorite against Miami. If the Dolphins can get the win on Sunday they would tie Jacksonville in the standings and also gain the tiebreaker edge against them. The Dolphins are also tied with the New York Jets and just a game back of New England in the AFC East. "We talked a little bit about that last week, that some of these things were going to come rolling down the turnpike here — and that this (New England) game mattered an awful lot," Miami head coach Tony Sparano said, "We'll have a few of them coming up that are going to be big games, none bigger than this one." Miami’s last four games are against teams competing with them for the final playoff spot. After Sunday, they play Tennessee, Houston and Pittsburgh.
The Jaguars have won four of their last five games including last week when they defeated Houston 23-18 in NFL betting. Jacksonville is flying under the radar in the AFC but those that bet on football have noticed that Jacksonville is winning games. The Jaguars are led by running back Maurice Jones-Drew who leads the AFC with 13 touchdowns.
