This season marks the ninth consecutive that the NFL will hold a game in London, England and the Jets-Dolphins matchup will be the first of a trio of games played in the UK. The Buffalo Bills and Jacksonville Jaguars will play there in Week 7, while the Detroit Lions will face the Kansas City Chiefs at Wembley in Week 8.
There are a couple of trends through the first 11 games in London to bear in mind if you’re going to make a wager on the Jets-Dolphins game this weekend.
The favorite covered the spread in two of the three games in England last season and, as previously mentioned, is 7-2 ATS in the last nine games. Faves are 7-4 ATS in all 11 England games.
Last season, the Dallas Cowboys beat the Jags 31-17, covering as 7.5-point faves, while the Dolphins spanked the Oakland Raiders 38-14 as 4-point faves. The Lions, who were 3.5-point faves against the Atlanta Falcons, won SU 22-21, but obviously missed covering the spread.
If you’re looking at totals, the over/under count is 6-5 in the 11 games and the over has cashed in five of the past six games across the Atlantic.
The total in this weekend’s matchup opened is currently 42.5.
