Football betting favors the New England Patriots by 10 points on Sunday as they host the New York Jets.
Both teams are coming off last second losses a week ago in NFL betting as the Patriots lost at Indianapolis while the Jets fell to Jacksonville.
Football betting has the Patriots with a two game lead over the Jets in the division so a loss here by New York would pretty much eliminate them in terms of winning the division. The Jets have a lot of great stats this football betting season but they have lost a lot of close games. “The bottom line to this whole thing, to this entire game, to our entire season, it’s find a way to find a way,” said quarterback Mark Sanchez. The Jets are actually tops in the league in rushing yards and on defense they are 3rd in fewest yards allowed as NFL betting stats show. Their problem is that they also lead the football betting league in close losses.
The Jets have five losses this football betting season and only one of those games was not a heart breaker. They lost to Miami twice, by four and five points, to Buffalo by three in overtime and to Jacksonville by two points. "This is four games that we’ve lost basically on the last play of the game," head coach Rex Ryan said, "They always say that you stay in the league long enough, it will even out. I certainly hope so because it’s tough."
New York has been good on the road lately in football betting. The Jets are 4-1 in their last 5 games as a road NFL betting underdog. They have not been good within their division overall though as they are 1-5 in football betting in their last 6 vs. the AFC East. The Jets are 9-3-1 vs. the football betting odds in their last 13 meetings in New England.
New England has not been a good football betting favorite laying big points as they are 1-10 in their last 11 NFL betting games as a home favorite of 10.5 or more.
Looking at the football betting total we see that four of the last five New York games have gone over the total. Six of the last eight New England home football betting games have gone over.
