49ers Jets Betting Tips – Humbled Niners Face Wounded Jets In The Northeast

Posted by Tony Bryant on 9/25/2012 6:48:29 PM

The San Francisco 49ers and the New York Jets are headed in different directions this week: The Niners are coming off a loss, while the Jets are coming off a victory in week three.

Why San Francisco Will Win

The online sports betting legal community knows that even though the 49ers stubbed their toes against Minnesota, this is still a team that stands in the top tier of the NFL.
The 49ers' rise to the ranks of the elite last season does not appear to be a one-year aberration, a magic carpet ride that is not likely to be reduplicated. Most of the indications from the early stretch of this season suggest that the Niners are here to stay for the foreseeable future. The defense, which was so physical and punishing a year ago, has maintained every ounce of its bruising, bone-crushing quality in 2012.

The Niners are still being stingy in the red zone, limiting an opponent's touchdowns no matter how powerful the offense. San Francisco has taken two elite offenses – Green Bay's and Detroit's – and held them under 23 points, a superb achievement. The Niners were on top of their game in that regard through two weeks; Minnesota scored three touchdowns in week three, but that's more an aberration than a trend at this point. The Niners' defense figures to bounce back against a manifestly inconsistent New York Jets offense this weekend.

The San Francisco offense, led by quarterback Alex Smith, isn't tripping over itself the way it had done before head coach Jim Harbaugh arrived. It slipped against Minnesota, but with New York cornerback Darrelle Revis out for the season with an ACL injury, the 49ers should be able to throw the ball with more success than they found last weekend against the Vikings. The Niners are generally taking advantage of opportunities when they arise. They're not leaving many points on the table, and with their defense, that's a certain ticket to victory on a regular basis. This matchup against New York should give them the ability to do what they need, when they need to do it.

Why New York Will Win

American football betting pundits know that the main question in this game is if the Jets' offense is up to the challenge of taking on San Francisco's defense. More specifically, can quarterback Mark Sanchez find the form and the composure he'll need to score touchdowns against an elite defensive unit? It's only week four of the young season, but in the Jets' one previous home game (against Buffalo in week one), they flourished, ringing up 48 points.

There is a sense in this contest that the Jets are playing a mini-Super Bowl. They played poorly in week two against Pittsburgh and will likely struggle on offense in other games this season, but they're playing a Super Bowl contender this time around. New York will carry an above-average level of energy into its home stadium, armed with what is likely to be an especially aggressive game plan. This is a statement game for the Jets, a team known for its competitive cockiness and its penchant for winning high-profile showdowns. Yes, the Jets missed the playoffs last year, but this is still a team loaded with players from the 2009 and 2010 seasons, in which New York upset a favored opponent in the divisional playoff round (San Diego in 2009, New England in 2010) to reach the AFC Championship Game. The "rise up and win the big game" mentality on the Jets' sideline could produce a top-flight performance and an upset in this situation.

Who Will Win

Are the Jets ready to regain their 2010-level swagger and collect another big-game scalp? It's hard to put faith in Mark Sanchez against the Niners' defense. San Francisco will not score much, but it will smother the Jets and leave the Northeast with a win.
