Since Brett Favre is now the quarterback for New York and former Jets’ quarterback Chad Pennington is in Miami. Football betting on this matchup before the season began didn’t look very exciting, but that sure changed when Favre was traded from Green Bay to New York.
NFL betting has the Jets the road favorite in this matchup even though there will be extra motivation for Pennington and the Dolphins. NFL Odds Week 1 numbers have the Jets as a three point football betting favorite with a total of 36. The Jets made some nice additions in the off-season according to NFL betting experts including upfront with the signing of Alan Faneca. The offense should put up points with Favre throwing to Laveranues Coles and Jerricho Cotchery. Thomas Jones is also poised to have a very successful season running the ball for New York according to NFL betting experts.
NFL betting experts know that Miami made a number of changes before getting Pennington from the Jets. They hired Bill Parcells to run the football operations and hired a new head coach in Tony Sparano. Miami also has Ricky Williams back running the ball and he has looked superb in the preseason according to NFL betting insiders. NFL betting stats show that the Jets have crushed Miami in this series lately. They are 8-0-1 against the NFL betting odds in the last nine meetings against the Dolphins. Last season the Dolphins went 1-15 straight up and 5-9-2 against the NFL betting odds.
NFL betting stats show that although the Jets have owned the Dolphins in this series they have not done well overall on the road. New York has lost eight of their last nine road games overall according to NFL betting numbers. That lack of road success has not carried over to Miami though as the Jets are 9-1 against the football betting pointspread at Miami. NFL betting stats show that New York went under the total in six of their last seven games but those numbers will need to be adjusted now that Favre is with the Jets. The Dolphins went under in four of their last five games last season and the Under came through in six of Miami’s eight home games in 2007 according to football betting stats.
