The Dolphins are a three-point underdog to the Jets at home.

Despite the fact that the Miami Dolphins destroyed the Oakland Raiders last week, 35-13, while the New York Jets lost 27-10 to the Pittsburgh Steelers, Miami is a three-point underdog at home. Heading into the NFL season, the Dolphins were considered one of the worst teams in the league, but after showing some life against the Raiders, being a three-point underdog is more of a compliment than anything.

The line on this game is 40 points, meaning the experts feel that this will be a low-scoring game, but only 33 percent of the betting public is going with the Dolphins to cover.

The Dolphins will need another stellar performance by running back Reggie Bush, who had two touchdowns and 174 yards on the ground last week. They also will need rookie quarterback Ryan Tannehill to play a near perfect game if they are going to cover, or even win the game.
