Dolphins vs Jets Predictions

Posted: Oct 5, 2022Last updated: Oct 5, 2022

After dropping from the NFL’s unbeaten ranks in Week 4, the Miami Dolphins (3-1) will look to get back in the win column when they visit MetLife Stadium to take on the New York Jets (2-2).

Miami will turn to backup quarterback Teddy Bridgewater in this AFC East showdown after Tua Tagovailoa (head/neck) suffered a scary-looking injury in last Thursday night’s 27-15 loss to the Bengals.

Meanwhile, the Jets will try to keep the momentum going after Zach Wilson helped New York overcome a 10-point, fourth-quarter deficit in a 24-20 victory over the Pittsburgh Steelers in his season debut.

Let’s dig into the betting odds to find our Miami vs New York best bets and predictions.

Dolphins vs Jets Odds

At Caesars Sportsbook, the Dolphins have been installed as three-point road favorites over the Jets, with the Over/Under set at 44 total points.

Take a look at the best Dolphins odds and Jets odds for the 2022 NFL season.

Dolphins 23.5, Jets 20.5

This game is expected to play out like the Jets-Steelers contest from Week 4, but with New York ultimately coming out on the losing end this time around.

Dolphins vs Jets Prediction

Dolphins 20, Jets 13

The Jets have alternated home losses with road wins to this point of the season, however, this will be their best chance to break that trend.

My concern remains New York’s offensive line, which had to resort to playing guard Alijah Vera-Tucker at left tackle last week due to a dearth of healthy bodies at the position. To make matters worse, rookie right tackle Max Mitchell left last week’s game with a knee injury and will miss several weeks.

That opens up an opportunity for a Miami defense that likes to bring the blitz. Wilson can counter some of that with his mobility, but he’ll likely be on the run a lot this week.

On the other side of the ball, Bridgewater is a competent game-manager that should be able to get the ball into the hands of his two explosive playmakers, Tyreek Hill and Jaylen Waddle. New York has two solid corners in Sauce Gardner and D.J. Reed, but this will be a difficult test for them.

Ultimately, I think this game will come down to the wire, but I’ll take Miami in a bounce-back spot.

Dolphins vs Jets Bet Tips

Here are some Dolphins vs Jets betting trends to consider before placing your bets:

  • The Jets are 1-4 ATS after a win under head coach Robert Saleh.
  • Teddy Bridgewater owns the best ATS record of any quarterback in the NFL, min. 20 starts, covering the spread at a 67.7% rate.
  • The Under is 3-1 in Miami’s games so far this season, while it is 2-2 in New York’s games.

Dolphins vs Jets Best Bets

Dolphins -3 (-120) at Caesars Sportsbook

Miami has a rest and preparation advantage after playing on Thursday, which could really be a big factor as head coach Mike McDaniel works on a game plan for his new starting quarterback.

The Jets are more than capable of falling flat after an emotional win, much like they did in Week 3 at home against the Bengals after their triumph in Cleveland the previous week. I’m not sure I’d go beyond the field-goal spread, but this feels like a spot to buy back on Miami at three points or fewer.

Division games are typically a good spot to back the Under and this spot is no different. To make it even more favorable, we’ve got two quarterbacks facing off that haven’t played significant time this season.

New York and Miami have failed to clear this number in six of their last seven meetings (one push), and I’m expecting another low-scoring affair on Sunday.
