NFL Week 5 Betting Preview for Miami Dolphins versus New York Jets

Miami Dolphins Betting Preview: Dolphins Will Have to Improve Record Without Tua Tagovailoa Under Center

The 3-1 Miami Dolphins presently lead the AFC standings as the first quarter of the season comes to an end. In Thursday’s 27-15 loss against the Bengals, Teddy Bridgewater took over for Tua Tagovailoa and completed 193 yards of passing with a score and an interception. Tyreek Hill, a wide receiver for the Dolphins, leads the NFL in receiving yards (477), and he’s enjoyed facing the Jets, where he has averaged 103 yards with four touchdowns in three games.

The Dolphins had a difficult time against the Bengals on Thursday night, as they gave up 27 points. The Dolphin’s defense has struggled statistically to start the season, giving up 22.8 points per game while ranking 28th in total yards allowed (403) and total yards allowed. The Dolphins, who have given up 89 points in four games, have a solid chance to bounce back at New York.

New York Jets Betting Preview: Jets Look to Build Off of Comeback Win

In his Week 4 comeback, Wilson managed to accomplish a little bit of everything, including throwing and catching touchdown passes. Even though Wilson had two interceptions, he maintained composure while leading the squad to a comeback victory. Breece Hall also dominated the backfield, gaining 66 yards on 17 carries, including the decisive rushing touchdown to end the game.

Despite giving up 20 points, the Jets’ defense made a significant contribution to their 24-20 victory the previous week by recording three sacks and intercepting four passes on Sunday, including three from rookie QB Kenny Pickett. The winning touchdown was set up by the defense’s third interception, and the fourth completed the victory. Week five’s matchup against the Dolphins will likely be without Tua, giving the Jets an intriguing underdog look.

Betting Odds and Lines 

In this matchup, Mybookie lists the Dolphins as the -3 spread and -170 moneyline favorites despite playing on the road. Meanwhile, the Jets look to push their win streak to two, coming in as +3 spread and +145 moneyline underdogs. The point total is currently at 46.

Free Betting Pick

The Dolphins are one of the most explosive offenses in the NFL and should be just fine with Teddy Bridgewater under center moving forward. The Dolphins will get extra rest in this matchup and are primed to get back in the win column. The New York Jets, on the other hand, haven’t played particularly well this season. Their two losses against respectable teams weren’t close, and their play last week proves they could be dangerous in a few years, but they’re missing some major pieces. 

To make matters worse for the Jets, Miami has won the last four encounters. Additionally, the Dolphins have had success playing them on the road, winning three of the previous four games and 10 of the previous 14 meetings in East Rutherford.

MyBookie Free Pick: Dolphins -3 (-110)
