Football betting on the New York Jets will be popular this week as they travel to Oakland to face the Raiders.
Football betting history shows that the Jets and Raiders have met 10 times since 1997 with each team winning five games. The Jets, however, are 6-3-1 against the football betting number in those games. The teams last met in 2006 as the Jets routed the Raiders 23-3 in New York according to NFL betting stats. The teams also met in 2005 at New York and it was a similar result as the Jets won 26-10 according to football betting stats. The previous 7 meetings were all in Oakland according to football betting numbers. The Raiders won five of those seven games according to football betting stats.
The Jets have not been favored on the road very much in recent seasons according to football betting numbers. It has only happened twice and the Jets are 1-1 in those situations versus the football betting number. The Raiders on the other hand have been a home underdog a lot in recent seasons and they have not been good against the NFL betting number. They have lost nearly 70% of the time as home dogs the past three seasons according to NFL betting stats. After last week’s debacle against New Orleans it is somewhat surprising that the Raiders are only three point underdogs on Sunday.
In terms of the total, the over/under numbers have split going 5-5 according to football betting stats. The Jets have been a slight under team on the road in recent seasons but with Brett Favre now at quarterback it may be wise to throw those football betting stats out the window. The Raiders have been a slight under team at home since 2005, going under the football betting total about 53% of the time.
