Jets Jaguars Betting Tips – Sanchez Gets Pulled Again
New York Jets @ Jacksonville Jaguars – Sunday December 9, 2012 1:00PM EST
The football betting experts watched as New York Jets’ quarterback Mark Sanchez almost lost the game to the Arizona Cardinals in week 13 on his own. Sanchez threw three interceptions and could get the team nowhere near the endzone before head coach Rex Ryan was forced to pull Sanchez and put in rookie quarterback Greg McElroy. The result was that McElroy was able to move a dormant Jets’ offense down the field and score the winning touchdown. McElroy’s reward was to watch as the inept Sanchez was given back his starting job for this game against Jacksonville. Most fans don’t think that Sanchez will finish the game. But, with Tim Tebow now healthy, no one is really sure who will finish this game as the New York Jets’ quarterback.
The Jacksonville Jaguars have turned the ball over to veteran quarterback Chad Henne in the hopes that Henne can put some life in an otherwise lifeless offense. But without star running back Maurice Jones-Drew, the online sports betting experts did not see much life in Jacksonville’s offense when the team traveled to Buffalo in week 13. The Jaguars, in general, lack any enthusiasm and the prospects that the team will pull off a third win before the season ends seems unlikely. But nothing cures a bad team’s ills like a visit from the New York Jets.
Why the Jets Will Win
The New York Jets will look to be completely out of this game, until Rex Ryan is forced to pull Mark Sanchez once again. The problem is that the sportsbook experts are not sure which backup quarterback Ryan will go to when Sanchez is stewing on the bench. The logical choice is McElroy, based on his performance in week 13. But Ryan is probably wondering, as the rest of us are, whether that “Tebow Magic” translates to the Big Apple. Either way, getting Sanchez out of the game will be the thing that turns this game to the favor of the Jets.
Why the Jaguars Will Win
The Jags do not have much to offer on offense or defense, but the most important thing for the team to do is not give up so easily. While New York does have a good defense, the New York offense is susceptible to errors. The Jaguars’ defense needs to pull itself together and put consistent pressure on the New York offense if Jacksonville wants to win this game. The Jags can force the Jets to make mistakes that will cost New York the game.
The Bottom Line
Both the New York Jets and Jacksonville Jaguars need to go back and start over for the 2013 season. There is not much that should be salvaged from either team, with the notable exception of the New York defense. It will be that defense which will make the difference in this game.
Pick: New York Jets
