    Betting on the Total

    It's tough to imagine this Jets roster to put up any more than 14-to-17 points on the scoreboard. They average 16 in the sims, with the total staying below 43 in close to 62 percent of simulations.

    • The UNDER is 5-0 in the Jets' last five games after allowing more than 30 points in their previous game. They gave up 45 to Oakland in Week 2.
    • The UNDER is 5-0 in the Jets' last five games after allowing more than 350 total yards in their previous game.

    What to Watch For

    The Jets quite possibly might have the worst defense in the league and Dolphins head coach Adam Gase knows how to take advantage of that. Especially with weapons like Landry and Ajayi. Ajayi finished last week with 122 yards on 4.4 yards per carry.

    Ajayi is projected to finished this game with 116 yards on 20 carries. He averages 0.9 TDs per sim, the highest average on both teams.

    MIA -6 and the UNDER. Lay the points and take the Dolphins; buying a half point to 5.5 wouldn't be a bad option here either.
