The Miami Dolphins got some welcome news when it was announced that Robert Jones (knee) and Nik Needham (Achilles tendon) were beginning their return from injured reserve. They are back in practice and could make an impact in Sunday’s game against the New York Giants. The Dolphins can use some help after taking a 48-20 thumping from the Buffalo Bills up in New York last week. The Bills doused a Miami offense that had torched Denver the week before, putting up 70 points in a huge win. The Giants took another ugly loss last week as Daniel Jones threw a crucial pick-six on Monday Night Football that turned a game that was getting manageable into an insurmountable deficit against the Seattle Seahawks. Don’t miss this great opportunity to Win Big with the Giants vs Dolphins!

Why should you bet on the New York Giants?
The Giants are just 2-5 in their last seven games away from MetLife Stadium, and they definitely need a victory if they have any visions of reprising last year’s trip to the playoffs. Daniel Jones is back to his old ways in terms of ball security, with an unsightly 2:6 TD:INT ratio. Through four games, he has thrown for just 765 yards. Darren Waller and Darius Slayton have 285 receiving yards between them. The running game has struggled as Saquon Barkley has missed time due to a high ankle sprain, and Daniel Jones has taken his spot as the team’s leading rusher with 173 yards on the ground.
The Giants’ defense has been generous so far, permitting 30.5 points and 341.5 yards per contest. The top tackler is Bobby Okereke (32), and Kayvon Thibodeaux has three sacks so far, but for the most part, the G-men are struggling to get stops. The Giants have won, straight up, the last three games they played as underdogs against AFC teams, and when they had less rest than their road opponents, they have gone 8-1 against the spread in their last nine opportunities. That last statistic may be pushing things a bit too far, especially given the fact that the Giants’ offense has put together exactly one solid half of football – their Week 2 second-half comeback against Arizona.

Why should you put your money on the Miami Dolphins?
The Dolphins have enjoyed playing at home as of late, with a 7-2 record in their last nine games at Hard Rock stadium. Tua Tagovailoa is flying along, showing no signs of rust from last season’s extended time in the concussion protocol. He has a 71.3% pass completion rate, 1,306 passing yards, and a 9:3 TD:INT ratio. Jaylen Waddle and Tyreek Hill have combined for four scores and 680 receiving yards. On the ground, the Dolphins are running for 176.8 yards per game, led by De’Von Achane and his 309 yards and four scores.
Defense has been a little less reliable, as the Dolphins are permitting 29.8 points and 374.5 yards per contest. Jevon Holland leads the team with 39 tackles, and Andrew Van Ginkel has three sacks, but teams have been largely scoring at will against Miami – with the exception of Denver. October has been a tough time for the Dolphins; they are 0-10 ATS in their last ten games in this calendar month, and in their last five home games in October against NFC foes, they are 0-5. However, they lead the league in points (37.5) and yards (511.0) per game.

Giants vs Dolphins Final Score and Prediction
We have the top-scoring offense in the league (37.5 points per game) taking on the lowest-scoring offense in the league (11.5). While neither defense has been all that noteworthy to this point, the Giants’ offensive line is still in a shambles, which is why the mobile Daniel Jones has taken 22 sacks in four games. I predict a beating – Miami 48, New York 16.
