Betting on the New York Jets (2-7)
The Jets finally saw the light at the end of a long, dark tunnel last Sunday, ending a three-game losing skid with a 34-27 win over the New York Giants at home. Sam Darnold had a solid game, passing for 230 yards and a touchdown without an interception on 19-of-30 completions. Running back Le’Veon Bell had 34 yards and a touchdown on 18 carries, which was a performance that wasn’t really that inspiring. The Jets need Bell to be more productive in order to take away the attention a bit more from Darnold. It’s fair to expect Bell will get it right and put up a much better performance in Week 11 against Washington’s punching bag defense against the run. The Redskins are 28th in the league with 136.0 rushing yards allowed per game. Defensively, the Jets will be targeting to take advantage of Redskins rookie quarterback Dwayne Haskins’ lack of experience. Jamal Adams is still a game-change on that side of the ball, and he showed that with a spectacular strip-sack of Giants QB Daniel Jones which he turned into a touchdown.
The over is 3-0 in the Jets’ last three games.
Betting on the Washington Redskins (1-8)
The Redskins are coming off a bye, so they will have the fresher legs heading into their matchup against the Jets. The last time they were on the field, the Redskins took a beating at the hands of the Buffalo Bills in a 24-9 road loss. Haskins threw for just 144 yards with zero touchdowns on 15-of-22 completions. While the rookie expectedly struggled, grizzled veteran Adrian Peterson shined. The ageless Peterson rushed for 108 yards on 18 carries for an impressive average of 6.0 yards per carry. Peterson can still do it on the field, and he can show he’s got plenty of gas left in the tank again versus the Jets’ poor run defense that is allowing 25.4 points per game. The Redskins are averaging only 12.0 points per game and are surrendering 24.3 points per contest.
The under is 2-0 in the Redskins’ last two home games.
The Jets win, 21-17.
