NFL betting numbers might seem a little bit strange if you look back at last year’s records of the Tennessee Titans and New York Jets.
The Titans were the best team in the AFC last season but this year they have started off 0-2 and they are underdogs at the New York Jets on Sunday. It will be interesting to see who gamblers choose when making an NFL bet on this matchup.
NFL betting has the Jets a 2.5 point favorite with a total of 37. The Titans have lost two very tough games to start the NFL betting season. They lost in overtime to start the season against Pittsburgh and then fell last week 34-31 to Houston. Even though they lost in NFL betting, running back Chris Johnson had 284 yards from scrimmage (197 rushing, 87 receiving), the second-highest total in team history.
Tennessee will have their hands full against a very good New York team that has started 2-0. They routed the same Houston team that beat the Titans and last week the Jets took out the New England Patriots who are NFL betting Super Bowl favorites. Rookie quarterback Mark Sanchez has a 91.3 passer rating this season.
This will be the fourth straight year that the Titans have played the Jets but the first time the game has been played at the Meadowlands since 2003. Last NFL betting season it was the Jets winning 34-13 at Tennessee to end the Titans’ 10-game winning streak to begin the season. Overall in the series the Titans lead 22-16-1. New York is 10-6-1 at home against Tennessee all-time.
Tennessee has been a very good team in NFL betting in September and on the road. The Titans are 9-1 ATS in their last 10 games in September and they are 7-2 ATS in their last 9 road games. Tennessee is also a good underdog as they are 17-5 ATS in their last 22 games as an underdog. There are more good NFL betting trends for Tennessee as the road team is 5-1 ATS in the last 6 NFL bet meetings in this series and the underdog is 5-0 in NFL betting in the last 5 meetings.
New York has traditionally been a poor home favorite in NFL betting. The Jets are 1-4 ATS in their last 5 games as an NFL bet home favorite.
The NFL betting total trends point to an under. The Under is 5-1 in the Titans last 6 road games, 7-3 in the Titans last 10 games in September, and 5-2 in the Jets last 7 NFL bet games in September.
