What looked like a sure New England win before the season started is not the case anymore in this NFL betting matchup. The Patriots are favored but the Jets should get support as a home underdog in football betting.
Football betting stats show that this game could be high scoring with the Patriots scoring at will and Favre throwing all over the field for the Jets. The Patriots had the best offense in the history of the NFL a year ago and a defense that was 4th in the league according to football betting numbers. Both of those numbers are likely to slip this season according to NFL betting experts. New England lost Asante Samuel in the off-season and their defense is going to suffer. Football betting experts believe that with Brady and Moss on offense the Patriots will still put up a lot of points this season but they are unlikely to match last year’s output. They also face a New York Jets defense that was 9th in the league last year against the pass according to NFL betting stats.
New York should be able to move the ball against New England. Favre gives the Jets a real passing threat according to football betting experts and running back Thomas Jones is a solid running back. The defense is also better this season and their one weakness, stopping the run may not be exploited by New England in this football betting matchup. Head coach Eric Mangini should have a good idea of how to slow New England down and this game could be interesting.
The Jets have lost their last seven home meetings against the Patriots according to NFL betting stats. The over is 4-2-1 in those seven meetings according to football betting numbers. New England is a sizzling 8-1 in their last 9 divisional games as a road favorite according to football betting stats. The Jets are 3-5-1 in their last eight divisional games at home according to football betting numbers. 17 of the last 27 New England road games have gone over the football betting total. 12 of the last 19 New York divisional games have gone over the football betting number.
