Betting on the New England Patriots (6-0)
Where is the real challenge going to come from for the Patriots? It’s been six weeks since the season started, but the defending Super Bowl champions have yet to break a sweat. It’s not their fault they have a weak early-season schedule, but their power can’t be underestimated eager. In their last game, the Patriots blew the New York Giants away in Foxboro in a 35-14 win. They didn’t even need Tom Brady in his top passing form to beat the Giants. Brady passed for 334 yards with zero touchdowns and an interception on 31-of-41 completions. Brady did most of his damage on the ground, perhaps surprising even himself by scoring two short rushing touchdowns. The Patriots’ defense is also stealing headlines away from their offense. New England is allowing just 8.0 points per game this season — easily the best in the NFL. The Jets’ 31st-ranked scoring defense doesn’t figure to put a serious dent on New England’s stop unit.
The Patriots are 3-1 against the spread (ATS) in their last four meetings with the Jets.
Betting on the New York Jets (1-4)
The Jets finally got Sam Darnold back, and in the quarterback’s first game since recovering from mononucleosis which forced him to miss multiple weeks, he led the Jets to a 24-22 home shock win over the Dallas Cowboys last Sunday. Darnold passed for 338 yards and two touchdowns with an interception on 23-of-32 completions while running back Le’Veon Bell had 50 rushing yards and a touchdown on 14 carries. The Jets’ offense still left much to be desired, but it should be very much more fluid going forward, as Darnold gets more used to the action again. Wide receiver Robby Anderson benefited from having Darnold back, as he had 125 receiving yards and a touchdown on five receptions and eight targets in the Dallas game. Anderson has elite talent, and while he can be a boom-or-bust type of player, he’ll always be a threat against any opponent and in any kind of setting.
The Jets, who are 13th in the league with just 95.8 rushing yards allowed per contest, have seen the total go over seven times in their last 10 home games.
The Patriots win, 30-17.
