They have a great chance of finally earning a victory in front of their home crowd this coming Sunday, as they will be welcoming the New York Jets, a team that remains without a win on the road this year. Check out our preview of this game below.
Betting Preview for the New York Jets vs New England Patriots Regular Season Week 7 Game on October 24, 2021
Where: Gillette Stadium, Foxboro
When: Sunday, October 24, 2021, 1:00 PM ET
TV Broadcast: CBS
Betting on the New York Jets (+7)
Regular Season Record: 1-4
The Jets suffered their third consecutive defeat after losing to the Las Vegas Raiders at home in Week 6, 34-24. Teddy Bridgewater had an up-and-down performance against Las Vegas, as he finished with 334 passing yards and three touchdowns on 35/49 completions, but also got picked three times. Bridgewater and Denver’s attack can get going with a more efficient result this coming Thursday against a Cleveland team that seems to have an imploding defense. The Patriots gave up at least 37 points in each of their last two games. Denver could crank it up through the air while Noah Fant, Courtland Sutton, and Tim Patrick are still smoking from their performance in the Raiders game in which they each had a touchdown grab.
The Jets are 11-3 against the spread (ATS) in their last 14 Thursday games.
Betting on the New England Patriots (-7)
Regular Season Record: 2-4
Even though they lost to the Dallas Cowboys in Week 6 at home, 35-29, the Patriots showed they are capable of keeping up with better teams as they continue to get Mac Jones acclimated to the NFL setting. Jones went 15/21 for 229 passing yards and a pair of touchdowns with an interception in the Dallas game. He got picked off by interception leader Trevon Diggs, the NFL’s interception leader this season. There’s really not much shame to getting picked off by Diggs, so Jones will just have to keep his head high and believe that he’s not going to commit such a crucial error against the Jets. There’s a good chance he won’t. The Jets are just 27th in the NFL with only 0.8 takeaways per game. After dealing with Dallas’ stout defense, Jones and the Pats’ offense should feel more relaxed and less pressure from opposing defenders against the Jets, who are allowing 24.2 points per game.
The Patriots are 12-3 against the spread in their last 15 home games versus a team with a losing record away from home.
The Patriots win, 26-17.
