NFL Betting Prediction: New England Patriots vs New York Jets
Tonight at 8:20 pm Eastern, the New England Patriots (5-3) travel MetLife Stadium to take on the New York Jets (5-3). BetDSI Sportsbook current Livee Lines display the Jets a -140 favorite giving up -2 1/2 points against the Patriots.
The New England Patriots are coming off a 24-20 defeat to the Giants where New York came from behind. Neither team had scored until after half-time. Patriots QB Tom Brady threw 28 completions on 49 attempts for 342 yards 2 TD’s and 2 INT’s. New England used a runningback by committee to run the ball for 106 total rushing yards on the day. WR Wes Welker had another great game making 9 receptions for 136 total yards.
The Patriots defense played really good for a half (or the Giants offense played really bad), then after half-time it all unravled. New York amassed 361 total yards, 250 passing, 111 on the Pats defense. Allowing 3 TD’s, 2 rushing 1 passing in the last half of the football game.
The New York Jets are on a three game winning streak where their offense has put up 24+ points in all three games. QB Mark Sanchez threw 20 completions on 28 attempts for 230 yards a TD and an INT. Shonn Greene played sub-par as he has been all year with 19 carries for 76 yards. WR Plaxico Burress revitalized his career this year with the New York Jets. Last week he had 5 receptions for 79 yards, with a longest of 19 yds.
New York’s defense was relentless last week against the bills giving up only 11 yards to the high powered offense. The Jets defense gave up 287 total yards, 191 passing, and 96 rushing to the Bills. They didn’t amass much pass rush however LB’s David Harris and Calvin Pace both came away with interceptions.
My Prediction: I cannot remember the last time the New England Patriots lost 3 games in a row, and if they did their would be mass hysteria about how much the dynasty has fallen. The Jets are 4-0 at home this year scoring 24+ points in each game making the Over of 50 points an attractive bet, seeing either team could win this.
