Patriots vs. Jets 2023 NFL Week 3 Odds, Preview & Pick

By Jeff Stinger

There’s still a lot of uncertainty over in the AFC East, and Week 3 will try to paint a better picture of the division after the New England Patriots and New York Jets do battle in MetLife this Sunday. Can the Patriots secure their first win of the season, or will it be the Jets who find themselves back with a winning record?

Nitrobetting is ready to take your bets into the end zone this 2023 NFL season. Let’s take a closer look at the upcoming Week 3 divisional showdown between the New England Patriots and the New York Jets.

Why Bet on the New England Patriots?

Hot off a tense divisional matchup are the New England Patriots, who came up short of upsetting the Miami Dolphins this past Sunday, 24-17. That leaves Bill Belichick’s Pats winless after two weeks, although they’ve lost to two strong Super Bowl contenders, the Dolphins and the Philadelphia Eagles, by just a single-scoring possession apiece.

After a solid Week 1 performance, quarterback Mac Jones fell back to Earth against the Fins, throwing for just 231 yards and a passing score with one interception while also getting sacked four times. Running back Rhamondre Stevenson found the end zone for New England’s other TD of the day but finished with just 50 rushing yards on 15 carries.

As a silver lining, the Patriots’ defense forced two Miami turnovers and kept Tua Tagovailoa to under 250 passing yards as well. The Pats just need a well-rounded performance in a single game and they have one of the best shots at righting the ship this week against a Jets squad that’s predicted to be in for a slow and steady downfall.

Why Bet on the New York Jets?

In the wake of the season-ending injury to starting quarterback Aaron Rodgers, the New York Jets could not have asked for a worse opponent than the high-flying Dallas Cowboys. The Jets got dismantled by America’s Team last Sunday, 30-10, as the high from last week’s upset over the Bills has all but evaporated for Gang Green.

Zach Wilson proved once more why the loss of Rodgers is utterly unbearable. Wilson completed just 12 of his 17 passes for 170 yards, one touchdown, and a whopping three picks. With New York playing catch-up for most of the contest, the running game was almost non-existent, with the team only gaining 64 yards on the ground and with stud back Breece Hall only getting nine carries for nine measly rushing yards.

Now comes what, on paper, looks like a winnable matchup for the Jets. However, there’s a reason why their slight underdogs odds-wise even with the home-field advantage: the Patriots have simply owned them for over half a decade. Then again, New York’s opportunistic defense, one of only six teams in the league with three or more interceptions for the season, may be able to bail them out despite their back-to-putrid offense.

Patriots vs. Jets Expert Betting Predictions

Considering that the Patriots are in much better shape than the Jets after Week 2, along with their dominance in this rivalry, the Pats should be able to get their first win of the season out of the way this weekend. New York is back in rough shape and the Pats have hung tight in their first two losing efforts, and we wouldn’t be surprised if New England wins this matchup by double digits.
