Online betting players should be getting ready for a matchup of epic proportions on Monday night, when the New York Jets head to visit the New England Patriots in a battle for AFC East supremacy. The Patriots are very good in Foxborough, particularly their quarterback, but the Jets are going to take this game down to the wire, and possibly pull out a victory.

  • What: NFL betting
  • When: Monday, December 6th, 8:30 PM ET
  • Where: Gillett Stadium, Foxborough, MS
  • Pick: New York Jets +3.5

What’s On The Line

The Jets (9-2) won their fourth straight game with a 26-10 romp over the Cincinnati Bengals at home on the Thanksgiving nightcap, while the Patriots (9-2) used a monster second half to trounce the Detroit Lions 45-24 to kick off the holiday tripleheader. This sets up a massive game for the AFC East lead, bragging rights and revenge: the Patriots fell 28-14 in New Jersey in Week 2. With all due respect to Steelers-Ravens, this is the Game Of The Week.

Offensive Matchups: Jets Patriots Betting

New York is 11th in the league offensively, and we all know they’re a running team. The Jets are second on the ground behind the Kansas City Chiefs, and they ran for 170 yards on the Bengals. Shonn Greene had his best game in weeks, which will ease the load on LaDainian Tomlinson. But the running game is also aided by an improved Mark Sanchez, who threw for 166 yards, a score and a pick. Sanchez isn’t turning the ball over like he was last year, and the Jets are opening up the playbook (slowly) for him. The defense hasn’t been as dominant this year, but the offense is improving, and when they put them together, watch out.

Tom Brady had a perfect passer rating of 158.3 by going 21-of-27 for 341 yards and four touchdowns with no picks, and Brady is looking like a man possessed this season. People said the New England offense would struggle without Randy Moss, but the receivers listen to the gameplan, and Brady gets them the ball. It also helped that the Lions failed to get any pressure on Brady, and with his poise, all he had to do was sit back and pick out receivers. The running game is getting better as well, and despite being two spots lower in the offensive rankings than the Jets, New England gets the edge by leading the league in points scored, over six points per game more than the Jets.

Betting Edge: Patriots

Defensive Matchups: Jets Patriots Betting

The Jets finally put together a defensive performance that we all know they have in them, and even though it was against a Cincinnati team that is a mess, it’s a great start. They held the Bengals to 163 yards, including a mere 46 on the ground, averaging 2.3 yards. The Jets sacked Carson Palmer three times, and blanketed the talented Cincinnati receiving core. They’re third in the league defensively and dare we say, getting better just in time for the stretch run. And is there a better corner duo than Darrelle Revis and Antonio Cromartie? We think not.

The Patriots showed some chinks in the armor, but they locked the Lions down in the second half, and this is the sign of a young team who is starting to get it. Linebacker Jared Mayo had 12 tackles, leading the league in that category, and the front seven is holding it down while the secondary matures. The Patriots are 31st in the league, and are dead last against the pass, and they desperately need a pass rush, but they’re improving.

Betting Edge: Jets

Notable Injuries: Jets Patriots Betting

Receiver Jerricho Cotchery (groin) has been out for the last two games, but they’ll have cornerback Dwight Lowery (concussion) should be back for the Jets.

Guard Stephen Neal (shoulder) has just been ruled out for the season, but that is all the injury news out of New England.

Betting Edge: Draw

Outlook and Pick: Jets Patriots Betting

The Patriots are 3.5-point NFL betting odds at home in this AFC East showdown, and they’re 3-2 both SU and ATS in their last five games in Foxborough against the Jets, who are 3-0 ATS against the rest of the division this year. We think the Patriots will end up winning this game, because Brady has won 25 straight at home, which is tied with Brett Favre for the record, but we think the Jets are going to keep it within a field goal. The defense is too solid to get obliterated by the Patriots, and their ground attack can slow the game down for them. Combine that with the fact that it’s a Monday night game, both are extremely well-coached and with everything at stake, neither will want to give an inch. Take New England for a SU bet, but we’re taking the Jets to cover the sports betting spread.

Stan’s Pick: New York Jets
