Dolphins @ Jets: Miami to streak to 10 points ahead of struggling hosts

| 01.12.2014

The Miami Dolphins are among a seven-strong pack of clubs chasing the American Conference’s last wild-card spot, but know that two games against the struggling New York Jets in their final five should give them the best chance of winning the race.

The Jets have won just two of their 11 games this season and have dropped five of their last six at home to the Dolphins.

Here are the best three bets for the encounter:

Miami to win race to 10 points @ 8/15

Through the first three quarters of games this season, the Dolphins are outscoring their opponents 231-137, which is the second best margin in the league.

The Jets’ 15.8 points allowed in the first half of outings is also the second most in the NFL, making the assumption that visitors will reach 10 points first a safe one.

Mike Wallace to score the first touchdown @ 13/2

Wallace is the Dolphins’ leading receiver, having caught seven scoring passes and gaining almost 150 more yards than any of his teammates.

So if the Dolphins would usually be looking for the six-season veteran to show them the way, they certainly will against a Jets side that he enjoys facing.

Wallace has reached the endzone in all of his last three outings against the New York side, two of which came in meetings last season.

Jarvis Landry to score at anytime @ 11/10

Rookie wide-receiver Landry has made an impressive start to his Dolphins career, growing into the season as it has worn on and gaining Ryan Tannehill’s trust as a result.

In the past three weeks, Landry has been thrown to 10 times or more twice having never been targeted on more than seven occasions prior to that.

The increased action has come with success as the LSU graduate has four touchdown catches in as many outings.
