Betting on the New York Jets (0-3)
The Jets will come into the meeting with Philly with fresher legs after spending an extra week to rest. In their most recent outing, they were clobbered by the New England Patriots in a 30-14 loss in Foxborough back in Week 3. The Jets weren’t given much of a chance against the reigning Super Bowl champions. For one, they were missing Sam Darnold due to mono. Darnold hasn’t played since Week 1, and his main backup, Trevor Siemian got injured while trying to fill the void under center. Based on recent reports, it seems that Darnold is set to miss another game, which would leave the Jets pinning their hopes on third-string QB Luke Falk to put up at least a decent performance. Against the Pats, passed for only 98 yards with an interception on 12-of-22 completions. Running back Le’Veon Bell will have to carry a big load again, but the Jets needs to provide better run-blocking, as Bell only rushed for 1.9 yards per carry against New England.
The Jets are 3-1 against the spread (ATS) in their last four games.
Betting on the Philadelphia Eagles (2-2)
The Eagles caught a big fish in Week 3, as they dealt the Green Bay Packers their first loss of the season with a 34-27 road win. Eagles quarterback Carson Wentz threw for 160 yards and three touchdowns on 16-of-27 completions, while running back Jordan Howard was all over the place, rushing for 87 yards and two touchdowns, while also scoring a receiving TD. Based on their last game, New York’s defense remains in disarray, so Wentz could be looking at another efficient performance in the pocket. The Jets are only 28th in the league with 286.7 passing yards allowed per game, though, Wentz still have to be wary of the Jets’ secondary that is mostly responsible for New York’s 3.42 interception percentage on defense — fourth-best in the NFL. The Eagles are seventh with 27.5 points per game and No. 1 in third-down conversion percentage (56.14)
The over is 3-0 in the Eagles’ last three home games.
The Eagles win, 33-17.
