Game Overview

For the second time this year, NFL betting fans will get a chance to take in a clash between the New York Jets and the Miami Dolphins in a 1:00 ET kickoff at MetLife Stadium.

Miami has to love the fact that the weather conditions in this game probably won’t be ideal. Mother Nature is throwing Hurricane Sandy the way of the Big Apple, and if that turns out to be a real problem over the course of the game, the plodding Fins might be at a real advantage. This is a team that would much rather keep the ball on the ground anyway, and Miami found some massive success the first time around against the Jets, rushing for over 180 yards in a game that really should have been won. We still don’t know if RB Daniel Thomas, who did a lot of the heavy lifting in that game after RB Reggie Bush got hurt, will be able to go with a concussion. One thing is for certain though, and that is that this is a team with a chip on its shoulder. The Dolphins really thought that they screwed the pooch, per se in Week 3 when these two teams met, and they want some massive revenge in what amounts to be a massive game between two arch rivals.

New York is a 3-4 team as we all expected it to be after last week’s trip to Foxboro, but sticking around and forcing the New England Patriots to overtime was a heck of a moment for the team. It was vindicating to see QB Mark Sanchez lead a comeback, though the skeptics out there will clearly want that to be the norm and not the casual change from the man that didn’t even complete half of his passes in a game over the course of a month. Injuries are really starting to mount, as both RB Joe McKnight (ankle) and RB Bilal Powell (shoulder) aren’t likely to suit. Add in there the injuries to LB Bart Scott (toe), LB Calvin Pace (shin), and DT Sione Po’uha (back), and there really is reason for concern, especially since all of those injuries have a massive impact on the rushing game on either side of the ball. If the weather is bad, it will really be up to just RB Shonn Greene to carry the load… though could it be Tebow Time?

Prediction

Regardless of whether Tebow plays or not, this feels like a game that Miami is winning. The Fins had the Jets dead to rights a month ago, and they are going to come up to the Garden State and send the Jets to a devastating defeat that might ruin their entire season. Miami 16 – New York 13
