Let’s take a look at the Jets vs. Dolphins line for this Week 12 AFC East battle.

The Jets are underdogs once again, entering at +6.5 on DraftKings Sportsbook. While the moneyline portrays Jets +240 and Dolphins -305, the total is set at over-under 45.5.


Oddsmakers truly believe the Dolphins will oust the Jets despite the fact that they’re coming off a tough loss to the Broncos.

Despite the fact that the Jets look to be improving — having suffered consecutive one-possession losses to the Patriots and Chargers — oddsmakers still don’t think they’ll defeat a potential playoff team in the Dolphins.

The Jets sport one of the worst offenses in the league and we don’t know what the near future holds for quarterback Sam Darnold. The third-year pro has missed four of the team’s last six games with a shoulder injury.

Not to mention, the defense is still below-average, having allowed 366 passing yards and three touchdowns of Chargers quarterback Justin Herbert this past Sunday.

Pair that with the fact that the Dolphins have been fairly strong for much of the year and have won five of their last six games, and you’ll understand why Miami is favored by this amount.

Not to mention, the last time these two teams met (Oct. 18), the Dolphins won by a score of 24-0.

Per DraftKings Sportsbook, the moneyline is currently Jets +240, Dolphins -305.

This isn’t the widest spread the moneyline has been for the Jets this season, but it’s still a significant difference. Simply speaking, the Dolphins are much more talented than the Jets and proved it when they faced each other back in October.

It’s reasonable to believe the Dolphins will win this game outright given the level either team has played at this year. While the Jets can’t do much right, Miami seems to potentially be on the verge of January football.

Entering this matchup, the Dolphins are 3-2 on the road while the Jets are 0-5 at home.


The total is currently set at over-under 45.5 points, a mark that could go either way.

Sure, the Jets are the worst scoring team in the NFL but have improved immensely in the last few weeks. They average 14.9 total points per game but have averaged 27.5 over the last pair of matchups.

The Dolphins, on the other hand, are 13th in scoring, putting up an average of 26.4 points. They’ve hit marks of 34, 43, and 31 this year alone.

For the over to hit, the Dolphins may need to put up around 28 points, which I could definitely see them doing against this weak Jets defense. But then again, Miami’s offense did struggle against Denver and only scored 13 points, so it’s unclear if the over is a total lock.

The average total is 46.6 for the Dolphins and 45.1 for the Jets.
