NFL Betting Preview: New York Giants vs. Miami Dolphins
October 8, 2023
The New York Giants will visit the Hard Rock Stadium in Miami, Florida on Sunday when they face the Miami Dolphins.
Both teams made the playoffs last season, however, both teams are vastly different this season as the Miami Dolphins are the highest-scoring team in the NFL while the New York Giants are the lowest-scoring team in the NFL this season. Will the Giants be able to keep pace with the best offense in the NFL this season or will the Dolphins come away with an easy win at home in week 5 of the NFL season? Let’s take a deeper dive into how these teams are performing this season.
The New York Giants enter this game with a record of 1-3 following a 3-24 loss at home against the Seattle Seahawks while failing to cover the 2.5-point spread as a home underdog in week 4 of the NFL season. New York scored 3 points while compiling a total of 248 yards offensively which included 203 passing yards and 112 rushing yards while allowing 24 points and 281 total yards defensively which included 173 passing yards and 121 rushing yards. Daniel Jones led the team in passing, completing 27 of 34 attempts for 203 yards with two interceptions while adding 66 rushing yards. Matt Breida led the team in receiving, catching all five targets for 48 yards.
The Miami Dolphins lost their first game of the season last week and enter this game with a record of 3-1 following a 20-48 loss on the road against the Buffalo Bills while failing to cover the 3-point spread as a road underdog in week 5 of the NFL season. The Dolphins scored 20 points while compiling a total of 393 yards offensively which included 282 passing yards and 142 rushing yards while allowing 48 points and 414 total yards defensively which included 320 passing yards and 104 rushing yards. Tua Tagovailoa led the team in passing, completing 25 of 35 attempts for 282 yards with a touchdown and an interception while rushing for seven yards. De’Von Achane led the team in rushing with eight carries for 101 yards and two touchdowns while adding three receptions for 19 yards. Tyreek Hill led the team in receiving, catching three of five targets for 58 yards.
BookMaker has the Miami Dolphins listed as 11.5-point favorites at home against the New York Giants on Sunday in week 5 of the NFL season. New York has won five of the last seven and two of the last three games in the series while going 2-1 ATS in the last three contests. New York is 0-4 ATS overall, 0-2 ATS on the road, and 0-3 ATS as an underdog this season while the Miami Dolphins are 3-1 ATS overall, 1-0 ATS at home, and 2-0 ATS as a favorite on the year.
Miami is the better team this season, however, New York has been the better team in the series, winning five of the last seven and two of the last three matchups. However, the Dolphins have been the better team at covering the spread this season going 3-1 ATS overall while the Giants have yet to cover the spread this season with a record of 0-4 ATS overall. I look for that trend to continue which is why I am buying the .5 point and taking the Miami Dolphins -11 at home against the New York Giants in week 5 of the NFL season on BookMaker.
