Dolphins Have Been a Money Pit in Prime-Time Games

Prime time has not been a good time for the Miami Dolphins and their backers as the team is just 3-11 SU and 2-12 ATS in its last 14 games played at night. The Dolphins will try to turn their nighttime luck around Saturday night on the road against the New York Jets.

  • The Dolphins are 1-5 ATS in their last six games against the Jets.
  • The Dolphins are 1-12 ATS in their last 13 games in December.
  • The total has gone UNDER in five of the Dolphins' last six games on the road against the Jets.

Miami beat the Arizona Cardinals 26-23 at home on Sunday to keep its playoff hopes alive, improving to 7-1 SU and 6-1-1 ATS over its last eight games. But the loss came with bad news as well with starting quarterback Ryan Tannehill going down with a sprained ACL. With Tannehill out of action Saturday, backup Matt Moore will take over at quarterback.

The Jets found a team even worse than they are last Sunday, defeating the San Francisco 49ers 23-17 in overtime as 3-point road underdogs. The win was New York's first in its last eight games as an underdog, bringing the Jets' record over those eight games to 1-7 SU and 2-6 ATS.

Miami has come out on top in six of the last eight games between the teams in New York, covering the spread in five of the games. The Jets have covered the spread in just two of their six home games this season.
