Why are the Dolphins a good bet at -1.5?

Miami’s a different team with a healthy Ryan Tannehill at quarterback. With Tannehill under center, the Dolphins can do many more things on offense. Tannehill completed passes to 6 different players in Week 1.He targeted slot speedster Kenny Stills the most. Stills caught 4 of 5 for 106 yards and 2 TDs. Miami’s defense picked off Marcus Mariota twice. Miami just seems more solid in 2018 than they were in 2017.

Why are the Jets a good bet at +1.5?

Are the Jets a safe bet for NFL Week 2?The Jets split with Miami in two games last season. NYJ beat the Dolphins 20-6 in Week 3 as a 5.5 home dog. In Week 7, Miami beat the Jets 31-28. In both games, the Jets played well. What’s inspiring is that even though the Jets lost one of two versus the Dolphins, they’re a much better team in 2018 than they were in 2017.Quarterback Sam Darnold threw a pick six on his very first NFL play. He settled down well in the Jets’ Week 1 game against the Detroit Lions. NYJ finally has a decent rushing attack now that Isaiah Crowell carries the football along with Bilal Powell.The Jets’ defense could pressure Dolphins’ quarterback Ryan Tannehill the same way they pressured Detroit quarterback Matthew Stafford. If that happens, New York could win this game.

Dolphins at Jets Final NFL Betting Analysis:

The Jets aren’t a bad football team, but they still start a rookie quarterback.Sam Darnold has as much talent as any rookie quarterback in the NFL. Unfortunately, he faces a team with an excellent secondary. The Dolphins didn’t sack Marcus Mariota. They forced him into bad decision after bad decision, though.Darnold and the Jets should keep it close before the Dolphins defense forces Darnold into a bad decision. Unlike in Week 1 versus Detroit, Darnold’s bad decision this time will cost the Jets the win.
