The New York Jets have been living on the edge in recent weeks. They’ll try to win with a little less drama when they host the lowly Cincinnati Bengals on Thursday night.

Why To Bet On The Bengals

The Bengals will want to quickly banish the memory of their ugly collapse at home against the Buffalo Bills on Sunday. When any athletes suffer a particularly bad loss, they want to get back on the playing field as soon as possible. Cincinnati’s players and coaches will have a national-television spotlight all to themselves on Thursday night, as the American Thanksgiving holiday will pit them against one of the premier teams in the NFL, the New York Jets. The Bengals should be motivated to give their very best effort on the road, and coach Marvin Lewis – who is now fighting to save his job – will remind his players that the Jets ruined Cincinnati’s 2009 season by winning back-to-back games against the Bengals. The first of the two wins came in week 17 in New Jersey. That victory – which put the Jets into the 2009 AFC Playoffs – set up a rematch between the two teams in the wild-card round. New York traveled to Cincinnati and knocked off the Bengals once again to advance to the divisional playoff round and eventually reach the AFC Championship Game against the Indianapolis Colts. All in all, Cincinnati has good reason to play hard for 60 minutes in this game; for the Bengals, it’s a matter of personal pride against their nemesis from the AFC East.

Why To Bet On The Jets

The Jets are a good pick because Cincinnati is awful. It’s bad enough to lose any game by a 49-31 score on your home field. It’s bad enough to lose any game by 18 points at home after owning a 28-7 second-quarter lead. It’s bad enough to get outscored 35-0 in the second half on your home field, hemorrhaging turnovers on offense while your defense gives up four legitimate touchdowns as well. It’s really horrible, however, when all those things happen against the Buffalo Bills, who are competing with the Carolina Panthers for the not-so-happy distinction of being the worst team in professional football. Yes, Cincinnati is that bad. Yes, the Bengals have unraveled that much, just one year after making the playoffs and winning their division, the AFC North. Cincinnati is playing terrible football right now, so even though the Jets have been very lucky to beat the Detroit Lions, Cleveland Browns and Houston Texans in recent weeks, they should be able to whack the Bengals on their home field. It’s also worth noting that the Jets and Bengals both played home games on Sunday. Since this game is on a Thursday, the Jets will be more rested as the home team; the traveling Bengals might be a little weary in addition to being shaken by their awful loss to Buffalo.

How The Game Will Play Out

New York will romp. It’s as simple as that. These teams are both mistake-prone, but the Jets are far more confident and playing at home. New York’s defense should feast on reeling Cincinnati quarterback Carson Palmer, who is throwing crippling interceptions every single week the Bengals play.
