Why Bet on the New York Jets?
Before NFL Week 8, the Jets had the worst offense in the NFL. But after Week 8, the Jets rank last in a single category, rushing yards per game. NYJ hosted the Cincinnati Bengals a +11.5 home underdog. All the Jets did was trounce the then scorching Cincinnati 34-31. The Jets beat the Bengals by both rushing the ball, 97 yards, and throwing, 414 yards.
Quarterback Mike White singlehandedly dominated. White threw for 405 yards and 3 TDs. If NYJ is to have any shot of keeping this close, White must again throw a great game.
While White has given a bump to the offense, no player has made things positive for the Jets defense. NYJ fields one of the worst units in football. The Jets allow an average of 390.4 yards per.
New York is better against the rush than the pass, but no matter how teams choose to move the football, opponents are scoring touchdowns. NYJ yields 29.4 points per. That’s bad, but it’s not the most glaring statistic. The Jets defense has forced just 5 turnovers in 7 games.
Why Bet on the Cincinnati Bengals?
Indianapolis’ offense averages 25 points per game. Coach Frank Reich prefers to rush the football. For the most part, the Colts have had success when averaging 122 per game.
The passing game has gotten better. Quarterback Carson Wentz took a backward step last week versus division rival Tennessee. Wentz completed less than 53% of his passes and threw 2 interceptions. If the Colts are to cover on Thursday night, Wentz must have a much better game.
Indianapolis has a good defense. It hasn’t translated to victories because the Colts are 3-5 straight up. Statistically, though, Indy’s defense ranks in the top half in every category. The defense’s best trait is its ability to force turnovers. Indianapolis leads the NFL in forced turnovers with 18.

Jets vs. Colts Expert Betting Predictions
Unless Mike White truly is more Joe Namath than Ken O’Brien, Indianapolis’ defense should shut down the Jets offense. Sure, NYJ dropped a 34-point bomb onto Joe Burrow and the Bengals. But a closer look reveals an interesting stat. The Jets scored 17 points in the fourth quarter. White mounted a big time comeback.
The Colts’ defense won’t melt down the way the Bengals’ did. Indianapolis’ D is too strong. On offense, expect a big bounce back performance from Carson Wentz. Up until Week 8, Wentz had thrown a single interception. He tossed two against the Titans. Wentz won’t have as bad of a game on Thursday night. The Colts win and cover.
