Football betting has the New York Jets trying to bounce back from two losses as they host the Buffalo Bills on Sunday.
The Jets are 9.5 point NFL betting favorites in the game. Football betting is likely to be popular on the Jets especially since the Bills have been terrible of late. The Bills really need a football betting win but the Jets will be highly motivated after losing two straight games. "I’m sick of that ‘same old Jets’ thing," head coach Rex Ryan said, "because it’s not the same old Jets. We make no excuses. Never have, never will. We’ve got to expect to win. That’s the biggest thing we’ve talked about as far as the culture of the team – that we’ve got to expect to win."
The Jets will be a popular choice in football betting against a Buffalo team that scored just three points a week ago in a 6-3 loss to Cleveland. The Bills may be looking at getting a new head coach soon as Dick Jauron is on the hot seat. The only reason Jauron still has a job is because owner Ralph Wilson doesn’t want to make a change in mid-season. It doesn’t help the Bills in football betting that they have a lot of injuries. Linebackers Kawika Mitchell and Marcus Buggs were placed on injured reserve and five players, cornerback Terrence McGee, safeties Donte Whitner and Bryan Scott, offensive tackle Jonathan Scott and linebacker Paul Posluszny are all questionable.
The Bills lead the all-time regular season series with the Jets 52-44 but last year the Jets won both games in NFL betting. Buffalo lost 26-17 at home in football betting and also lost 31-27 at New York.
The Bills haven’t gotten much offensively this football betting season with quarterback Trent Edwards struggling to find Terrell Owens. The running game is supposed to be solid with Marshawn Lynch and Fred Jackson but it has been inconsistent as NFL betting stats show.
The Jets were gashed last week by the Miami Dolphins in football betting. The supposedly great New York defense was awful after the New York offense had continually given the team the lead in that football betting game.
The Bills have been pretty good on the road in football betting as they are 4-1 in NFL betting in their last 5 road games. The Bills are 4-1 in their last 5 football betting meetings in New York.
