Why Bet on the New York Giants?
The Giants begin to get their stride back after collecting three of their four wins in the last five weeks. They hit the road after securing a 13-7 home win against the Eagles and hope to bring the same intensity against a tougher Dolphins squad.
The Giants are not the highest-scoring team in the league. They managed to score over 20 points in one of their four wins. The Giants average 18.4 points (26th) per game. The team utilizes their passing game more than rushing. They averaged 226.6 passing yards (18th) per game and recorded 264 total yards in their most recent matchup.
The team does slightly better on the defensive end. The Giants allow 23.0 points (16th) per game). They limit opponent passing yards to 243.7 (17th) and 127.7 rushing yards (26th). The Giants should have enough firepower to back the Dolphins into a corner. But, everyone has to put their best foot forward to keep the pressure on.
Starting quarterback Daniel Jones is on the questionable list with a strained neck. If this keeps him out of the game on Sunday, Mike Glennon is expected to take over the position. Meanwhile, two wide receivers also make their way to the list, Sterling Shepard (quad) and Kadarius Toney (oblique/quad), along with right cornerback Adoree’ Jackson (quad).
Why Bet on the Miami Dolphins?
The Dolphins are riding a hot streak right now and slowly going up the AFC East ranks. It will be tough to edge the Bills out of the second spot, but the Dolphins have a few more games to retain their postseason hopes.
The team averages 19.5 points (24th) per game. They record 230.7 passing yards (17th) per game. The side rarely benefits from the rushing play as head coach Brian Flores prefers the passing game over carrying. They have one of the lowest rushing yards average in the league at 80.2 per game.
We find that the squad is better defenders than they are scorers. The team allows 23.3 opponent points (19th) per game. Although the Dolphins give up 262.5 opponent passing yards (28th) per game, only the best rushing squads can challenge them. That said, the hosts allow 104.9 opponent rushing yards (tenth). They can easily hold off multiple rushing plays from the Giants if their opponents try to take this route along the way.
The Dolphins feature a relatively healthier quad than the Giants. This is one element that can help them edge their opponents. Right guard Robert Hunt and strongside linebacker Jaelan Phillips are on the questionable list due to injury.

Giants vs. Dolphins Expert Betting Predictions
The Giants move on to greener pastures with several wins in the bag, but they haven’t been able to sustain the success on the road. The Dolphins have quietly assembled a winning streak as the defense begins to build chemistry. They look to be one of the better squads in the league, and this should worry the Giants. The visitors can threaten to cover the spread, but it’s going to be hard to overcome the Dolphins in front of their home crowd. Ultimately, we are eager to see if the Giants step up against the favorites.
