A highly anticipated preseason game sees two teams which will be looking to improve on last season.
The Giants lost their last three games after defeating Miami in regular season play and the Dolphins also recorded a string of three consecutive losses before winning their final regular season game against the Patriots.
While the Giants struggled on the defensive end, it was the offense for Miami which wasn’t overly inspiring.
Bettors could see a clash of styles on Friday which should make for an interesting game at Metlife Stadium.
A spluttering offense destroyed any chance of Miami progressing into the playoffs last season.
The Dolphins were on the wrong side of the total yards ledger in eight consecutive games and that streak was only broken when they lost to the Colts 12-18.
The Dolphins management and coaching staff have made some moves in the offseason and brighter skies are on the horizon.
In particular, the signing of wide receiver Griff Whalen from the Colts can only be seen as a positive and the hard working player should get plenty of ball thrown his way.
Coach Case has been focusing on his offense in the lead up to this game and feels his team has improved.
Quarterback Ryan Tannehill has the experience and the arm to lead the Dolphins to success this year and with receivers such as Jarvis Landry and Griff Whalen to throw to, scoring more points should be no problem.
New York Giants
The good news for Giants bettors is that two-time Super Bowl winner Eli Manning will likely take the field against the Dolphins.
The bad news is that the Giants have some injury problems which could see them field a second-string team against the Dolphins.
It is unknown whether star wide receiver Victor Cruz will play in the preseason after sitting out most of last season, but he hasn’t missed a practice since returning from his calf injury so positive signs are there for the upcoming regular season.
Safety Landon Collins is under an injury cloud after falling in practice and fellow safety Nat Berhe did not train with the team due to a hamstring issue.
They will also be missing linebacker Keenan Robinson who is out with a groin injury.
The Giants lost their opening preseason game last season to the Bengals before going 2-1 in their next three.
NFL Betting Trends:

Free NFL Betting Prediction: Dolphins +3
We’re going against the trends here and believe the Dolphins can come out firing this preseason.
They are the more desperate team to show that they can score points with Tannehill at the helm and after some good offseason signings, it should be onward and upwards for the Dolphins in 2016/2017.
