Why Bet The New England Patriots To Beat The Jets
Tom Brady is the key to the Patriots dominance over the last decade. The future Hall of Famer leads the league with 1702 yards and 11 touchdowns. However, the offensive line needs to take care of their 40-year old quarterback. Brady, 40 now, has already been sacked 16 times and hit 28 this season after just 15 and 33, respectively, in all of 2016.
The big reason why Brady is taking the hits is he is holding the ball longer in order for Chris Hogan and Brandin Cooks to get open downfield. This is where Brady misses Julian Edelman.
Why Bet The NY Jets To Beat The Patriots
The Jets have beaten the Miami Dolphins, Jacksonville Jaguars, and Cleveland Browns in consecutive weeks. They have allowed 13.3 points per game in those games and have clearly taken advantage of the soft spot in their calendar.
The offense hasn’t scored more than 23 points in a game this season. To win this game, the Jets will have to lean on their defense. The Jets forced the Browns to turn the ball over three times last week. As a theam they have seven takeaways in 5 games, putting them in the top ten for the stat.
If You Still Can’t Decide Who To Bet On
- Patriots are 10-3 ATS in their last 13 games as a favorite.
- Patriots are 8-2 ATS in their last 10 games following a straight up win.
- Jets are 5-0 ATS in their last 5 home games vs. a team with a winning road record.
- Jets are 4-0 ATS in their last 4 games in October.
Patriots Vs. NY Jets Week 6 Betting Analysis
The Patriots are averaging 29.6 points per game this season. Only the Chiefs and the Rams are averaging more. Brady has a 23-7 career record against the Jets. He has thrown 44 touchdowns and 13 interceptions. New England can put lots of points, but I can’t see the Jets matching them point per point. Take the Patriots to cover the spread.
