NFL Week 2: Jets-Dolphins Betting Notes
The Jets pulled off an impressive upset over the Lions in week 1, fueled by the debut of Sam Darnold and a defense that produced four interceptions, including one that went for a touchdown. It was a great start by Todd Bowles and company, though, under his reign, the Jets haven’t been successful after an upset win, going 2-6 straight up the following week. His teams have also gone 2-6 against the spread.
New York’s game against Miami began as a pick’em, though bettors have moved the line to as high as Jets -3. As of this writing, 54% of the bets are on New York.
The Dolphins defense gave the Titans fits in week 1 and they should give the Jets a hard time on Sunday. Detroit couldn’t get pressure on Darnold, allowing him to make clean throw after clean throw. The rookie will have no such luxury at MetLife Stadium this week.
Ryan Tannehill looked sharp as a game manager in week 1, making safe decisions on the majority of his throws. He had a 75-yarder to Kenny Stills that showed what he is capable of. He also had a red zone interception in the first half that made Dolphin-bettors cringe. He’s played at Metlife on four occasions, winning three of them.
