Football gambling humility was handed out in a big way last Monday Night as the swaggering New York Jets were cut down to size with the football betting odds at New England.
The Miami Dolphins will try and get back into the AFC playoff picture as they take on their East Division rival New York Jets. The game will be telecast by CBS with a start time of 4:20 PM ET and Sports Gambling opened with the Jets as 6 point home favorites with an over/under of 41.
Miami has a NFL gambling record of 6-6 straight up and 7-5 against the spread with 7 of their games going under the total. Miami has been strong on the road with a mark of 5 payoffs in 6 games away from home as 5 of those games went under the total.
The Dolphins are coming off another inept home effort as they lost to Cleveland last week 13-10. The Dolphins are barely still alive for an AFC wild card playoff spot and would likely need to win out to qualify.
The Dolphins rank an abysmal 29th for offensive scoring but 4th for total defense. Chad Henne has not caught on as quarterback and that is holding Miami back.
The Jets have a betting on NFL football record of 9-3 straight up and 7-5 against the spread and have gone over the total in 9 of their 12 games this year. The Jets are coming off an embarrassing 45-3 debacle at New England in what was a first place showdown in the AFC East Division.
After a solid start to the season 2nd year quarterback Mark Sanchez is falling back into his rookie form of mistake prone play as his QB rating has slipped to 77.3 with a 16/11 TD/INT ratio. Sanchez is confirming the doubts of many handicappers that he is not a championship quarterback.
Miami is facing a must win football gambling situation in this matchup while the Jets will be looking to get back on track and prove that last week was an aberration rather than a revelation. Miami has played their best football on the road but the Jets should bring their best effort, full focus, and angry swagger.
