Nobody expected very much from the Miami Dolphins or New York Jets offenses to start the season, but both have shown a glimmer of hope in recent weeks. Which team is poised to come out on top this Sunday? Let's take a closer look at why I favor the Dolphins.
One of the most curious point spreads on the board in Week 8 is the Jets two and half point favorites over the Dolphins. The spread was the same in the look-ahead line, so their performance vs the Patriots didn't change perception for anybody. The question is whether or not the Jets should be favored in this game at all?
I waited all week to see if an affordable +3 would become available, but it appears like I'll have to wait closer to kick off for that to happen. I'd be willing to play the Dolphins +2.5, but wait as long as possible for some potential late line movement (odds from SBRforum).
Off and Into the Bye
