The Jets were the early NFL betting darlings of the league but quarterback Mark Sanchez has struggled mightily of late and the Jets are no longer a winning team.
Bet on football odds have the Jets favored by about at TD on the road at Oakland. This NFL betting number would have been higher but as we mentioned earlier the Jets are struggling and the Raiders are coming off a huge upset win against Philadelphia last week.
The key in this bet on football matchup will be the quarterback play. The Jets must find a way to get Sanchez to play better. He threw five interceptions last week and really gave the game away against Buffalo. "I just think we've got to do a great job of what we're asking this young man to do," head coach Rex Ryan said. "Do we need to cut things back, things that we could put on somebody else's plate and take some things off his plate? ... You've got to look at everything. We're still going to be true to ourselves offensively, but is there something we can help him with? That's the challenge we have going forward with our offensive staff."
You might think that the Jets would be losing confidence in Sanchez after he threw five picks but that is not the case. "I've got a lot of confidence in Mark. That's based on how he performed in training camp, in the preseason games." Ryan said.
New York has done well in bet on football action recently at Oakland. They have lost six of their last eight at Oakland going back to 1999. They will be facing an Oakland team that defeated Philadelphia 13-9 last week as two touchdown underdogs in NFL betting.
New York has been a money burner of late in bet on football action. The Jets are 3-8 ATS in their last 11 games bet on football games overall. The Jets are 1-4 ATS in their last 5 road games. Oakland has been no better of late. They are 9-20 ATS in their last 29 games as a home underdog. The Jets are 1-3-1 ATS in their last 5 meetings in Oakland.
As you look at the NFL betting total keep in mind that six of the last eight New York games have gone under. Four of the last five Oakland games have gone under the bet on football total.
