The NY Jets could potentially play party poopers on Sunday when they host AFC East hopefuls Miami Dolphins. We preview this matchup and serve up NFL picks to spot.

   

Miami Dolphins vs N.Y. Jets

 

Point Spread Value

The Miami Dolphins bounced back with a 26-23 win over the Arizona Cardinals at home while the Jets showed some gumption in a come-from-behind 23-17 win over the San Francisco 49ers in week 14. The win improves the Dolphins to 8-5-0 and 7-5-1 ATS. While the Jets improve to 4-9-0 SU and 5-8-0 ATS. Obviously, the Dolphins have a lot more at stake in this game. Unfortunately, the win over Arizona came with a price: the loss of Ryan Tannehill for the regular season, if not the playoffs (should they actually make it that far). It’s not all doom and gloom in Miami as Matt Moore is an able backup. Certainly, he should fancy his chances against a Jets team that would much rather dust off its golf clubs than suffer any more humiliation before its fans.

The Survivor

Wins are few and far in between where the Jets are concerned. Last week’s gutsy performance over the Niners can’t be dismissed entirely, but, we’re talking about the dreadful 1-12-0 SU Niners. Only the winless Browns are worse which a compliment it isn’t. Dolphins have a bit of setback resorting to backup Moore but who do the Jets have at quarterback that is reliable?

Game Total

The Dolphins are 9-4-0 in O/U betting while the Jets are 6-7-0 in O/U betting. However, these stats are not representative of the matchup set for Sunday, which will feature Matt Moore and Bryce Petty going head-to-head. We’ve yet to see what the Dolphins look like with Moore calling the shots. While we’ve yet to get a real sense of what Petty brings to the table. All this makes it a bit of a tossup for week 15 NFL picks.
