Why New York Jets are a good bet at +3?

Jets’ running back Isaiah Crowell can control this game from the beginning. Crowell averages 5.1 yards per carry. For some reason, NYJ hasn’t committed to giving Crowell the football. That’s caused them to perform much worse than they could have in plenty of games.

If they commit to Crowell early on, they could build a nice lead against the Dolphins. The Jets only must stick with Isaiah to beat their rivals straight up on Sunday.

Why Miami Dolphins are a good bet at -3?

Are the Dolphins a safe bet for NFL Week 9?

In Week 9, Miami finally battles a team with a losing record. They’ve taken on the New England Patriots, Cincinnati Bengals, Chicago Bears, Detroit Lions, and Houston Texans in their last 5. All 5 of those NFL teams are winners.

The New York Jets are losers. The Dolphins had trouble keeping it close against the above 5 teams. They’ll welcome a respite game versus a squad that doesn’t have as much talent as what they’ve got.

Final NFL Betting Analysis for Jets at Dolphins

NYJ might not be as talented as the Miami Dolphins, but they’ve got a huge edge in a key statistical category. The Jets average an awesome 113.8 yards per game on the ground. Even against tough teams like the Bears and Vikings, NYJ stuck to the rushing attack, handing the ball off 24 times in both games.

Miami allows a terrible 143 rushing yards per matchup. That ranks dead last in the NFL. The Jets should use Isaiah Crowell as much as they can on Sunday. If they do, they’ll upset Miami on the moneyline.
