We already are at Week 11 of the NFL season and anyone involved with New York sports betting is familiar with the quagmire the Jets and Giants have found themselves in for the most part.
The Jets (2-7) host their AFC East rival Miami Dolphins (3-7) at 1 p.m. Sunday.
Even in a home game against the lightly regarded Dolphins, the Jets are a 3.5-point underdog by DraftKings Sportsbook NY, BetMGM Sportsbook NY and Caesars Sportsbook NY at home as of Friday afternoon.
Moneyline odds on the Jets are +150 (BetMGM) and +155 (Caesars, DraftKings), with over/under total points at either 44.5 or 45.
The Dolphins, coming off a big 22-10 home victory over the Baltimore Ravens a week ago on Thursday Night Football, are -175 (BetMGM) and -180 (DraftKings, Caesars) moneyline bets in NY.
Coming off a 45-17 thrashing at the hands of the Buffalo Bills last Sunday, the Jets look to veteran quarterback Joe Flacco, 36, to turn around the team’s woes. The Jets’ top draft pick, quarterback Zac Wilson, is still out with a sprained knee and flash-in-the-pan Mike White takes a seat, after a dismal four-interception performance against Buffalo.
The Jets are looking for anything on the positive side. Having a veteran presence in Flacco could limit turnovers and make it close. The Dolphins are riding high and always love to beat New York. NewYorkBets.com pick: Dolphins 27, Jets 17.
Giants Head to Tampa on Monday Night
Coming off a bye week, the Giants (3-6) are looking to regroup on the road Monday night when they face the struggling Tampa Bay Buccaneers (6-3).
New York is currently a 10.5-point (BetMGM, DraftKings) and 11-point (Caesars) underdog with moneylines on the Giants coming in at +385 (DraftKings) and +400 (BetMGM, Caesars). Tampa Bay moneylines are -525 (DraftKings) and -550 (BetMGM, Caesars).
All three mobile betting apps in NY have the over/under total points at 49.5.
New York upended the Las Vegas Raiders at home, 23-16, on Nov. 7 as quarterback Daniel Jones threw for one touchdown and Graham Gano kicked three field goals to secure the win.
Tampa Bay Aims to End 2-game Skid
The Bucs, the defending Super Bowl champion, are coming off a 29-19 loss to Washington last week and will be looking to break a two-game losing streak. The Bucs sit atop the standings in the NFC South.
Quarterback Tom Brady completed 23 of 34 passes for two TDs and two interceptions in the loss and hopes some home cooking (4-0 this season) does the trick. Tampa Bay responds in a big way and the offense gets back on track. NewYorkBets.com pick: Bucs 37, Giants 21.
