NFL Betting Online – Jets Favored at Home vs. Packers

One of the best games of the week in NFL betting online takes place in New York as the Jets host the Green Bay Packers.

Some people believe the Jets are the best team in the NFL and they are favored by almost a TD in NFL betting against the Packers.

Jets -6, total 42.5 at Sbgglobal
The Jets are 5-1 this season and one of only three teams in the NFL with only one loss. They are coming off their bye week so they have had plenty of time to prepare for the Packers. Green Bay got a big win last week against Minnesota but they still didn’t look that great. It was more of Minnesota making mistakes than it was the Packers winning the game.

Green Bay Offense vs. New York Defense
The Packers have a very good offense led by quarterback Aaron Rodgers and we all know about the Jets defense.  New York’s defense should be getting better as cornerback Darrelle Revis has had time to rest his sore left hamstring.  If Revis is healthy you can figure he will make it very difficult on Rodgers and his great receiving corps.

New York Offense vs. Green Bay Defense
The Packers are simply not a good defensive team. They lucked out last week as Brett Favre threw the game away for the Vikings.  The Packers have not been very good against the run which could mean a big game for LaDainian Tomlinson and Shonn Greene.  New York quarterback Mark Sanchez has been very efficient this season and he should have enough success against the Packers for New York to be balanced on offense.

Jets have won 7 of 8 vs. Green Bay
The Jets have won seven of the last eight in this series against Green Bay. The teams met four years ago in Green Bay and the Jets blew away the Packers 38-10 in NFL betting.  The last time they played in New York was in 2002 and the Jets won 42-17.

This is a very tough matchup for Green Bay. They face one of the best defenses in the league and a New York offense that has been tough to stop lately.  The Jets are 5-1 against the NFL betting online number this season and they may be 6-1 when this game is over.
