Why Bet on the New York Jets?
The Jets currently ride a 1-4 record and are yet to win a road game this season. In Week 6, the team recorded its second 20-point game. It’s a massive improvement from their first three games where the team recorded a combined score of just 20 points, including a scoreless game against the Broncos.
Currently, the Jets hold the lowest ranking points per game in the league at 13.4 (32nd). They also have one of the least average yards per game at 267.0 (31st). It’s clear that the team struggles to find its stride on the offensive end, but an average score of 22 points in the last two games might produce better results for this time around.
But as we look at the defense, several notable qualities might help the team close the gaps. The Jets rank 18th in opponent points per game at 24.2. Nevertheless, they do well in limiting opponent touchdowns per game at 2.2 (6th).
Tyler Kroft is the only questionable player from the Jets’ starters. The tight end is currently suffering a back injury. Ryan Griffin takes his place if Kroft does not get the green light from the medical staff.
Why Bet on the New England Patriots?
It’s been a series of ups and downs for the Patriots early into the season. The team found two road wins in six weeks and Week 7 presents an opportunity for a first home victory. They were two points shy of a home win against the Dolphins in their opener and three points behind in their Week 4 contest against the Buccaneers. This tells us that the team is bound to secure a win at the Gillette Stadium sooner or later.
Like the Jets, the Patriots attempt to improve their offensive numbers. At the moment, they rank 24th in the league in points per game at 20.8, and 26th in the league in total yards per game at 322.3.
But, what the Patriots lack in offense, they make up for on defense. The team records 21.2 opponent points per game 21.2 (9th) and limits opponents to just 3.8 yards per rush (5th). We can look forward to New England’s defense slowing down the Jets this weekend.
Shaq Mason is the only starter on the Patriots’ questionable list. The right guard was also out last game with an abdomen injury, and Ted Karras is next in line to take over the position.

Jets vs. Patriots Expert Betting Predictions
The Patriots have a comfortable advantage in this game. We expect the team to put pressure on the Jets right away with a relatively better lineup and a more consistent squad. Having the support of their fans gives additional morale as well. Even so, we shouldn’t underestimate what the Jets can do here. The team trailed the Falcons by seven points in their recent loss, and there’s a good chance they cover the spread in this game. Moreover, there’s more work to be done if they want to improve on a 1-4 record and keep their winning chances present.
