If there was ever a spot for a letdown for the Jets then this is it. They are coming off a big home win in NFL football betting on Monday night against the Minnesota Vikings and now they have to go to Denver before their bye week.
Jets -3, 41.5 at Sbggobal – The Jets are laying a field goal at Denver and the total on the game is 41.5. New York is considered the top team in the NFL so they are a deserving favorite. If they can avoid a letdown they should win but it may not be easy.
Denver’s Passing – If the Broncos are going to win this game it will be on the arm of Kyle Orton. Denver has no running game at all. They are not likely to get anything against New York. Orton is having a fantastic year and he could find some success in this game as it appears that Darrelle Revis may not play. The key for Denver will be protecting Orton from a New York defense that loves to blitz.
New York’s Running – The Broncos were gashed last week for 233 yards but the Ravens so you can expect to see a lot of LaDainian Tomlinson and Shonn Greene on Sunday. The Jets love to run the ball anyway and they should have a field day against the Denver run defense.
