While Moore is known as a bit of a gunslinger, coach Adam Gase likely will look to take pressure off the veteran quarterback and lean on Jay Ajayi and the ground game as it targets a Jets team that was gashed for 193 rushing yards by Carlos Hyde on Sunday. Ajayi amassed 111 yards in Miami’s 27-23 victory over New York on Nov. 6 but has struggled to get untracked of late with 154 yards on 50 carries over his last three games. Ajayi recorded back-to-back 200-yard performances with Mike Pouncey in the lineup, but the Pro Bowl center was placed on injured reserve Tuesday with an ailing hip.

New York: 4-9 SU,5-7-1 ATS

NY Jets is 1-4 SU in its last 5 games
NY Jets is 2-3-1 ATS in its last 6 games at home
NY Jets is 1-5 SU in its last 6 games at home
Quarterback Bryce Petty has enjoyed quite the connection with promising wideout Robby Anderson, with the pair hooking up on a 26-yard reception to set up the winning touchdown in overtime Sunday. The 23-year-old Anderson has converted 23 targets over the last two games into 10 receptions for 160 yards and a touchdown. By comparison, veteran wide receiver and former Dolphin Brandon Marshall (team-leading 56 catches, 744 yards) matched his season low with three receptions for 33 yards versus San Francisco.

Miami Dolphins vs. New York Jets

Free Pick: Miami -2.5

I know the Dolphins just lost their quarterback but there isn’t that big of a drop off with Moore starting. The Dolphins are a better team and going in the right direction while the Jets are …well the Jets. Another lost year and no quarterback. Sad when Butt Fumble is the best quarterback your team has had in the last 5 years.
