The New York Jets are hosting the Miami Dolphins for the NFL's first-ever Black Friday Game and the sportsbooks are giving the advantage to the visitors.
Sitting atop the AFC East standings, the Dolphins (7-3) enter the Week 12 road divisional matchup as a 7.5-point betting favorite. Miami is coming off a 20-13 home win over the Las Vegas Raiders in which the Fins failed to cover the double-digit point spread.
Meanwhile, the Jets (4-6) suffered their third straight loss in Week 11, falling on the road, 32-6, against the Buffalo Bills, who opened as a 7.5-point favorite. The Green & White are 0-3 against the spread during the current slide, losing to the Raiders as slight road favorites after dropping a home game as the underdog to the Chargers.
Three of the Jets' four wins this season were outright victories as the betting underdog. Gang Green defeated the Bills in Week 1, the Broncos in Week 5 and the Eagles in Week 6.
The Jets and the Dolphins will clash twice in the next four weeks. Following the November 24 contest on Amazon Prime Video, the divisional rivals will meet again in Miami on Sunday, December 17.
The Dolphins will bring the NFL's top-ranked offense to MetLife Stadium. Miami averages league highs in yards per game (434.0), points per game (30.5) and yards per play (6.99).
The Jets, who surrendered a season-high 32 points to Buffalo in Week 11, ranks fourth overall amongst NFL defense in yards per play allowed (4.71).
The wagering line has the Jets-Dolphins anticipated point total (over/under) set at 40.5. There is still uncertainty as to who will start at quarterback for the Jets after Zach Wilson was benched late in the third quarter against the Bills.
For those bettors looking to play the money line, Miami is a -345 favorite while the Jets are +275 as the 'dog. All odds are provided by SI Sportsbook.
The Jets and the Dolphins will kick off at 3:00 pm ET on November 24 in a Prime Video exclusive.
