Best Favourite: Miami Dolphins can get to .500 with a win against the Jets

One of the wildest stories heading into Week 15 is how well the Miami Dolphins are playing. Weeks ago, the best 2021 NFL betting lines on this game could have had the Dolphins as underdogs. However, the Dolphins have rattled off six straight wins and can get back to .500 with a win against the Jets.

We expect the Dolphins to have no problem beating the Jets. Dolphins’ quarterback Tua Tagovailoa is 2-0 against the Jets in his career, completing 82.86% of his passes.

The defence for the Dolphins is also coming alive down the stretch. The Dolphins have held four of their last five opponents to ten points or less and no opponent has gone over 380 yards of offence (something opponents did five times in the Dolphins’ first eight games).

The Jets are a terrible team this season. They rank 29th in points scored and 32nd in points against. Zach Wilson has the worst adjusted net yards per pass attempt in the NFL this season (3.61). In comparison, Tua is right in the middle of qualified quarterbacks at 6.33.

Unless you are wary the Dolphins’ bye week came at the wrong time (we have seen a couple of teams this season coming off their bye weeks looking flat), there is no reason to bet against the Dolphins.

Best Underdog: Take the Houston Texans in the Battle of the NFL’s Worse Teams

To Win the GameSports InteractionSports InteractionTo Win the Game

Is there a worst game on the remaining schedule this season? Probably not. So why not make some money betting on the Texans in Week 15.

We saw this game earlier in the season. The Texans cruised to victory against the Jaguars. The final score was 37-21 – but the Texans were up 34-7 at one point and just let the Jags score some garbage time points to make it look closer than it was.

The Jaguars are a mess. Their coach Urban Meyer is a mess in the NFL. He is calling out players and coaches – despite his own shortcomings. The players do not want to play for him and he does not look like he is happy in the NFL. At least the Texans like their head coach.

Best Over: Bet the Colts and Pats Offences to put up Points on Saturday

Game TotalSports Interaction
Over 45.51.91
Under 45.51.91

The Colts host the Patriots in one of the biggest games of Week 15 and we expect both teams to put up points on Saturday night. The Colts offence is one of the best in the NFL in the last two months. The Colts have put up at least 30 points in seven of their last eight games. The Patriots are also moving the ball well. They had scored at least 24 points in eight straight games before that weird Monday Night game in Buffalo.

Historically, Bill Belichick knows how to put up points against the Indianapolis Colts. While they did have Tom Brady during this stretch – the Patriots have scored at least 31 points against the Colts in every game dating back to 2010.

We expect the Colts to put up points as well – as Jonathan Taylor is the best running back in the NFL. Taylor – who we have an underdog bet to win the 2021 NFL MVP – is pretty much unstoppable this season. Taylor has scored a touchdown in ten straight games (the longest streak since LaDainian Tomlinson in 2004-2005).

The Patriots rushing defence ranks 19th in the NFL this season (allowing 114.5 yards per game). Both teams will have a hard time getting stops on Saturday. Bet the over.

Best Under: Dallas and New York Giants both have Question Marks on Offence

Despite the Cowboys having arguably more talent on offence than any team in the NFL this season, they are not scoring as consistently as expected. Much of their lower-than-expected offensive output is due to questions around Dak Prescott’s health.

Since beating New England 35-29 on October 17 – the game total on Cowboys games have gone under in six of seven.

On the other side of the field are the New York Giants. The Giants are one of the worst offences in the NFL this season – ranking 25th in total yards and 27th in points per game. Their poor offensive production has resulted in seven straight unders hitting – before the over hit in the Giants Week 14 loss to the Chargers (37-21).

The Cowboys also have a good defence this season – with Micah Parsons the leading candidate for 2021 Defensive Rookie of the Year. The defence has kept the Cowboys competitive – despite the inconsistencies on their offence. Combined that with the questionable QB situation in New York and it is worth betting the under on this game.
