The New York Jets (0-5) will travel to Hard Rock Stadium to take on the Miami Dolphins (2-3) Sunday in Week 6. Below, we give you five player/team prop bets to consider from the BetMGM game menu in Week 6.
5 New York Jets prop bets to make in Week 6
Odds via BetMGM; access USA TODAY Sports’ betting odds for a full list. Lines last updated Saturday at 11:50 p.m. ET.
QB Joe Flacco OVER 225.5 passing yards (+100)
Simply put, the Jets have been awful on offense this season. They are averaging under 280 yards per game and their offense is producing an abysmal 4.46 yards per play. It’s very likely that the Jets are going to be down early in this game, forcing Flacco to throw 40 or more times. While his offensive line is atrocious and the receivers aren’t much better, take Flacco here as a volume play as he should surpass 225.5 passing yards.
Flacco UNDER 5.5 rushing yards (-110)
Try to envision Flacco scrambling outside the pocket at this stage of his career? Now you can see why his rushing yardage total is set so low. Expect the veteran quarterback to be under duress all day, but don’t expect to see him make any plays with his legs. Take the UNDER on rushing yards for Flacco.

RB Frank Gore UNDER 60.5 total yards (-115)
With RB Le’Veon Bell released and off to the Kansas City Chiefs, the veteran Gore is expected to start once again for the Jets. However, he has been very disappointing to start the season, averaging only 3.2 yards per carry. He’s been a non-factor in the passing game and that isn’t expected to change in Week 6. With New York being a big underdog in this contest, don’t be surprised if the game-script takes Gore out of this contest in favor of rookie RB La’Mical Perine. It would be quite a shock if Gore totaled OVER 50 yards in this contest against a good Miami defense.
WR Jamison Crowder OVER 65.5 receiving yards (-134)
One of the only above-average players on the Jets offense is Crowder. He’s been incredibly productive as of late, totaling over 104 receiving yards in his last three games. Dating back to the 2019 season, he has reached 60 or more receiving yards in six straight games. Look for him to see double-digit targets on Sunday and to easily surpass the 65.5 receiving yardage total set for him.
TE Chris Herndon first Jets TD scorer (+1000)
One of the most disappointing Jets this season has been TE Chris Herndon. Despite a ton of offseason and training camp hype, Herndon has caught just 13 passes for 98 yards and no touchdowns this season. However, Sunday could be a breakout game for the former Miami Hurricane as the Dolphins do struggle to stop tight ends in the red zone. As a 10-1 underdog to score the team’s first touchdown, Herndon isn’t a bad bet considering how often QB Joe Flacco likes to use the tight end near the end zone.
