In the last round of the NFL’s regular phase, which precedes the playoffs, the Dolphins and Jets face off to decide who gets the second spot in the AFC East Division – the Bills have already secured an early spot in the playoffs.
The match will be played on Sunday afternoon at Hard Rock Stadium in Miami, home of the Dolphins. In the last meeting between them, the Jets won by 40-17, in an electrifying game full of twists and turns.
The Dolphins and Patriots have won 8 games so far, while the Jets have only 7 wins. This was perhaps the most balanced division of this first phase of the NFL, as the three teams still have hope of advancing to the playoffs after this last round.
Follow more details about the recent moment of the teams and know our main prediction for this confrontation.
Sunday, January 8th- 01:00 pm ET at the Hard Rock Stadium
Where Can I Watch it?
Why Bet the Dolphins
The Dolphins are on a terrible 5-game winless streak. The team led the division for a few weeks but soon saw the Bills grab the lead and not let go.
Miami last won in late November in an easy game against the Texans that ended 30-15. At that time, the team was on a 4-game winning streak. The Dolphins simply jumped from an unbeaten streak to an unimaginable losing streak.
There’s still a chance the Dolphins will advance to the knockout stage, but judging by recent results, fans aren’t getting their hopes up. The team still needs to root for a stumbling block by the Patriots to have a chance of reaching the playoffs.
Why Bet the Jets
The Jets had many chances to reach the top positions but ran into poor performances in theoretically easy games. Just like their opponent on Sunday, the Jets face a terrible 5-game winless streak in the league.
They beat the Bears, 31-10, just in late November, in what would be their last win so far. The Jets are going through a unique moment. They are the team with the most wins at the bottom of the divisions. Other teams at are bottom of their divisions have only won 2, 3, or 4 games. The Jets won 7 and were unable to move from last place, due to the amount of strong competition in their group.
Against the Dolphins, the Jets need to play everything they know, because depending on the combination of some results, they can still end the season in second place in the AFC East Division.
Final Betting Analysis: Dolphins vs. Jets
Fans and commentators expect that this will be a very tense game because it will define the final situation of the teams of the AFC East Division. The Dolphins have the advantage of playing at home, but the recent moment of the teams is very similar: a great sequence of defeats and distrust on the part of the fans.
In their last 20 matches, the Dolphins won 13 and lost 7. With one more victory over their opponent on Sunday, the Dolphins should impose themselves and show that they are still one of the sensations of the current edition of the NFL.
Our guess is for the Dolphins to win.
If you put $100 into the Dolphins’ win, you could get $56 back for a total payout of $156.
