Why Bet On The New York Jets

The New York Jets are on a four-game win streak against the Jags. Can they keep that streak going with their rookie franchise QB? Sam Darnold has thrown for 701 yards, 3 TDs, and 5 INTs. Now he faces a stingy Jaguars defense, led by All-Pro cornerbacks Jalen Ramsey and A.J. Bouye.

That means the Jets will have to establish the run game with Isaiah Crowell. He leads the league with four rushing TDs along with Carlos Hyde and Todd Gurley. Crowell also averages 4.5 yards per carry. Will a stout rush game be enough to cover the NFL Week 4 spread as 7.5-point dogs?

Why Bet On The Jacksonville Jaguars

Jacksonville lost their first game of the season last week at the hands of the Titans by a 9-6 score. That points towards a Jacksonville win this week. Head coach Doug Marrone’s Jags are 7-1 following a loss. But the question is should you bet on Jacksonville’s NFL Week 4 spread at -7.5.

Jets vs. Jaguars Betting Predictions Week 4

Can Sam Darnold pull of a Josh Allen-esque upset of the Jags?

The short answer is no.

The long answer is: The Jets are 6-0 ATS in its last six when failing to cover the spread in consecutive games. This will be a low scoring affair in Florida’s swampy heat. Blake Bortles has his moments but can’t win games on his own. Leonard Fournette and TJ Yeldon are both day-to-day in Jacksonville’s backfield. Even if Fournette returns, the Jags will be careful not to re-aggravate his bum hammy.

Bet the Jets to cover the spread at +7.5 and the Under.
