The Jets were excellent last week for gamblers that bet on football as they dismantled the Houston Texans while the Patriots just got by the Buffalo Bills on Monday Night Football.
NFL bet odds have the Patriots as 5-point road favorites in this contest. The Patriots did not cover the bet on football spread last week against the Bills but they did pull out the straight up victory. Quarterback Tom Brady finally found his rhythm late in the game. “We were just off in the first half,” said Brady, “We had fourth downs we missed; we had third downs we missed, two chances in the red area, the interception. Those things really get you behind the eight ball. But we recovered with just a couple of second left. Sometimes it goes like that.” Brady’s favorite receiver at the end of the game was tight end Benjamin Watson who scored two touchdowns.
The Patriots will not be able to play as poorly against the Jets and expect to win. The Jets have a much better defense than Buffalo led by head coach Rex Ryan and an efficient offense.
