The 8-7 Jets enter Sunday's contest against the Miami Dolphins as slight underdogs as they look to make the AFC Playoffs.
The 8-7 New York Jets travel to Miami to face the 5-10 Miami Dolphins this Sunday with an outside chance of making the AFC Playoffs. In order for the Jets to make the Playoffs they need to defeat the Dolphins, a Bengals loss to the Ravens, a Titans loss to the Texans and either A) a Broncos loss to the Cheifs or B) a Raiders loss to the Chargers.
At 5-10 the Dolphins have nothing significant to play for.
According to Odds Shark the Dolphins opened the week as one-point home favorites. The line has moved to as many as 2.5 on a handful of sports betting sites.
According to Vegas Insider 67 percent of the money against the spread is being wagered on the Dolphins. The Over/Under is 41 points, with 87 percent being placed on the over. 95 percent of the money line bets are being placed on the Jets.
