    Miami Dolphins vs New York Jets Prediction

    First game Miami vs New York in week 9, Jets lost 27-23 in Miami. The Dolphins will be away this game without QB Ryan Tannehill. Last week Tannehill suffered a torn ACL in the victory over the Arizona, Sunday. Even without starting quarterback Ryan Tannehill, Miami Dolphins are a 3 point favorite against the New York Jets.

    New York Jets have been that one team that just can’t seem to get right in the AFC East. I honestly couldn’t bet on the Jets this Saturday. The Dolphins are fighting for a wild card spot while the Jets have no reason in these last few games of the season unless they feel like getting revenge from the loss in week 9.

    I believe -3 Miami is a safe bet this week without starting QB Ryan Tannehill against the Jets. My prediction is 21-10 given New York’s weak defense won’t be able to stop the Dolphins from scoring at least 3 times.
