And both of Miami’s opening two wins came on the road. The Dolphins will now get to come home but they face two tough games in NFL betting in the next two weeks as they host the Jets and the Patriots.
The game this week between the Jets and Dolphins should be one of the best on the board at the Sbg sportsbook. The Dolphins are 1-point favorites in the Sunday night game on NBC.
Miami Defense Impressive – The Miami defense won Sunday’s game against the Minnesota Vikings. The harassed Minnesota quarterback Brett Favre, recovered a fumble in the end zone for a touchdown and then stopped Adrian Peterson on a fourth down late in the game. The defense intercepted Favre three times and made him look like a 40-year old who belongs back on the farm. The Vikings did not lose at home all season a year ago so getting a win at Minnesota was huge for the Dolphins.
Jets and Dolphins Total is 35 – You would think with New York’s great defense against Miami’s defense that a low scoring game is in the cards for Sunday night. The total on the game is 35 and on paper it would seem like an under. Sometimes when these two teams get together that doesn’t happen but it sure does look like one this time. Both of last year’s games went way over the total. The Dolphins won 30-25 at New York and they won 31-27 at home. In fact, four of the last six and six of the last nine in this series have gone over the total. The road team has won four of the last five games in this NFL betting online series.
Miami is 2-0 for the first time since 2002. They will try and make it three straight in NFL betting against a New York Jets team that played very well last week in a win over New England. The Jets and Patriots are both 1-1 so if the Dolphins get the win over the Jets in this game they would take a two-game lead over New York in the division.
