While the dawn of mobile New York sports betting gives people something to look forward to, the season can’t end soon enough for the New York Giants and New York Jets as the NFL enters Week 15 of the regular season.
The Giants (4-9) host their rival, the Dallas Cowboys (Fox, 1 p.m.). Dallas easily sits atop the NFC East at 9-4.
Without quarterback Daniel Jones, who could be lost for the rest of the season with a neck injury, the Giants are 10.5-point, +400 moneyline underdogs with an over-under total points at 44.5 on Caesars Sportsbook. Dallas is a -500 favorite on the moneyline.
New York Betting Finds Giants, Jets Heavy Underdogs
On two other mobile sportsbooks (BetMGM and DraftKings) Wednesday morning, the point spreads and over-under total are the exact same as Caesars with moneyline numbers at +385 (Giants) and -525 (Cowboys) on DraftKings and +375 and -500 on BetMGM.
The Jets (3-10) also play a rival as they travel to meet the 6-7 Miami Dolphins (CBS, 1 p.m.). Miami has won five consecutive games to put them right back in the thick of it in the AFC wild-card race.
New York is a 10-point, +380 moneyline underdog in the game on Caesars with an over-under total points total of 42. Miami is a -475 moneyline favorite.
Both BetMGM and DraftKings list the Jets as +9.5 point underdogs with the over-under at 42.5. They are +340 (BetMGM) and +330 (DraftKings) on the moneyline; the Dolphins are -435 (DraftKings) and -450 (BetMGM).
Comeback Kids, They’re Not
After getting out of the area for a week, practicing in Arizona and bonding more as a team, the Giants lost to the Los Angeles Chargers, 37-21. With the game tied at 7-7 after the first quarter, the Chargers exploded for a 17-point second quarter to put the game out of reach with a 24-7 halftime lead.
All you need to know about the Giants is this: They are 6-46 when trailing at halftime since 2017! (the most such losses in that span in the NFL).
Beleaguered running back Saquon Barkley totaled 95 yards (64 on ground) with one touchdown reception against the Chargers. Earlier this week, Barkley expressed his interest in retiring as a Giant.
Backup quarterback Mike Glennon performed admirably. Glennon, who will get the start this week, with Jake Fromm as backup, completed 17 of 36 passes for 191 yards with two TDs, one rushing TD and one interception.
NewYorkBets.com prediction: If the Giants somehow pull this off, it would be a miracle. Expect the doldrums to continue with another passionate but unlistenable postgame press conference by head coach Joe Judge. Cowboys 37, Giants 17.
Jets Need More Consistent QB Play
Jets rookie quarterback Zach Wilson has shown signs of his ability since coming off an injury, but at times he looks like a deer in headlights and shows no consistency.
Last Sunday, the Jets lost at home to the New Orleans Saints, 30-9, as they were outscored, 20-3, in the second half.
Wilson completed 19 of 42 passes for 202 yards with no TDs or INTs. In yet another sign of what is wrong with the Jets, his 33 rushing yards led the team.
C.J. Mosley led the Jets defense with 11 tackles.
NewYorkBets.com prediction: Miami always plays tough against the Jets, no matter where the game is played. When the Dolphins are home with a chance to get to the .500 mark at 7-7, they will be even tougher. Dolphins 34, Jets 13.
