Betting on the New York Jets (3-8)
Perhaps the fact that Todd Bowles is still the head coach of the Jets is more impressive than whatever it was his team did in last week’s 27-13 loss to the New England Patriots. Against the Pats, Josh McCown went just 26-of-45 for a touchdown and an interception, while the Jets’ backfield coughed up blood, rushing for only 74 yards on 15 carries. In other words, the Jets’ offense is lifeless and lacking any sense of urgency. From how things stand for the Jets, it looks like they’re going to stick with McCown, with rookie gunslinger Sam Darnold still nursing a foot injury. A couple of bright spots for the Jets in the loss to New England was wide receiver Quincy Enunwa and Jermaine Kearse. Enunwa caught all four targets for 73 receiving yards, while Kearse had 66 receiving yards on six target and 12 targets.
The under is 3-1 in the Jets’ last four road games.
Betting on the Tennessee Titans (5-6)
What’s up with the Titans? A couple of weeks ago, Tennessee seemed to have figured it out, when the Titans won back to back in Weeks 9 and 10. What followed was consecutive embarrassing losses to the Indianapolis Colts and the Houston Texans, respectively. Last Monday’s 34-17 road loss to the Texans was particularly damning of the Titans’ inconsistency, but the good news for them is that they have two very winnable games in front of them. After dealing with the Jets, the Titans will take on next the struggling Jacksonville Jaguars. Despite the loss to Houston, what Titans quarterback Marcus Mariota did in that contest shouldn’t be overlooked. The former Heisman Trophy winner completed 22 of 23 passes for two touchdowns with zero errors. However, he was sacked six times for a loss of 43 yards. Tennessee needs to plug those holes in their offensive line, but it may not have to worry that much against the Jets, who are only 26th in the league with 22.0 sacks and also 26th overall with a 5.29 opponents’ sack percentage.
The Titans are 6-1 ATS in their last seven home games.
Tennessee wins, 27-17.
