Cardinals Jets Betting Tips – Jets Keep Crashing at Home
Arizona Cardinals @ New York Jets – Sunday December 2, 2012 1:00PM EST
When the online sports book experts look for clues that an NFL team is on the verge of complete collapse, the signs are not always as easy to see as they are with the New York Jets. Just a day after the Jets were once again embarrassed at home with a loss, Jets’ fan Fireman Ed called it quits and said he is done leading the crowd in cheering and chanting. Fireman Ed said that the Jets management has divided the team’s fan base so much with the Tim Tebow – Mark Sanchez debacle that he is getting harassed by fans of Sanchez as he wears his Tebow jersey. When your biggest fan gives up on your team, it is time to evaluate what you are doing.
The NFL betting noticed a definite lift in the Arizona Cardinals’ offense with the return of running back Beanie Wells. The problem is that the Cardinals has lost both of its starting quarterbacks and is now down to its third stringer. Arizona has always had a potent defense that was capable of playing against any offense in the NFL. But with an offense that cannot seem to get out of its own way, the Cardinals seem destined to miss the playoffs. However, nothing cures a team’s ills like playing the New York Jets.
Why the Jets Will Win
The Cardinals have a great defense, and that will cause a lot of problems for the New York Jets’ offense all day long. The online sports betting experts fear that injuries to key offensive players and the lack of cohesiveness in the locker room has killed any chances that the Jets would have at winning any game it plays. All the Jets can really do in this game is hold on and hope that it is still in the game in the fourth quarter. A grinding fourth quarter offense that wins the game with a last minute field goal is about the only chance New York has.
Why the Cardinals Will Win
The combination of Wells running the ball and the Arizona defense stopping the New York offense should be all that the Cardinals need to pull off this win. There is some good run blocking going on in Arizona, but the protection for the passing game is weak. The Jets still has a potent defense, and the Cardinals need to be careful or it could lose its third starting quarterback of the season. But a consistent running game and strong defense should be what the Cardinals need to win this game.
The Bottom Line
The circus has left New York and left a path of destruction in its wake. The New York Jets will need to start over completely for 2013 and it should probably start with the release of the entire Jets’ coaching staff.
Pick: Arizona Cardinals
