Jets Patriots Betting – Jets Try To Snap Brady’s Home Winning Streak

The sports online betting crowd knows that Tom Brady recently set the record for consecutive home regular season wins with 26. Normally, regular season stats are not important in the regular season, but the New England Patriots have won all eight of their home games this year and they are on a roll. The New York Jets come into this game with confidence after beating the Indianapolis Colts during the Wild Card Weekend.

  • What: NFL betting
  • When: Sunday, January 16th, 4:30 PM ET
  • Where: Gillette Stadium, Foxboro, MA
  • Pick: New England Patriots -8.5

What’s On The Line

The Jets beat the Colts in the playoffs for the first time ever last week, and they did it on the ground. Quarterback Mark Sanchez was under constant pressure from the Colts defensive line, and constant orders from head coach Rex Ryan not to throw the ball. The Patriots come into this game with the 11th best run defense in the league. The Pats defense is built to beat the Jets, and Tom Brady and the New England offense has been unstoppable all season long.

Offensive Matchups: Jets Patriots Betting

Tom Brady has the most unlikely set of wide receivers in football. Not one of his starting receivers is over six foot tall. But when Brady needs height to get the ball over the top, he throws the ball to his 6’6” tall tight end Rob Gronkowski. Running back Danny Woodhead is the biggest little surprise of the season that defensive coordinators still do not seem to have an answer for.

The Jets are all about running the football. Mark Sanchez was inaccurate and indecisive when he decided to throw the ball deep, so the Jets just kept giving the ball to running back LaDainian Tomlinson. The Jets offensive line spent most of the game pushing the Colts defensive line backwards. It is definitely a power running game in New York, but that makes it a very one-dimensional offense.

Defensive Matchups: Jets Patriots Betting

Everything a defense needs to do to be able to stop the Jets offense can be done by the Patriots defense. The Pats defensive line and linebackers can get pressure on the quarterback, stop the run and cover the tight ends in the middle of the field. The only time the Pats may come into a problem is when Gronkowski catches a pass in the secondary. The New England secondary may not have an answer for the big tight end if the Patriots linebackers can not cover him from the line of scrimmage.

The Jets defense was torched a little by Colts running back Joseph Addai, especially up the middle. Every once in a while, the running game for the Colts would back up the Jets defense and Peyton Manning had room to throw. The Patriots offense will be a significantly different challenge for the Jets defense. There is more than one threat out of the backfield in New England, and Tom Brady knows how to use his receivers.

Notable Injuries: Jets Patriots Betting

The Patriots are reporting no notable injuries for this game.

The Jets are banged up from their wild card game with the Colts. Safety James Ihedigbo (knee), defensive end Trevor Pryce (hip) and offensive tackle Damien Woody (knee) are all questionable but expected to play. Cornerback Antonio Cromartie (groin) is probable.

Outlook and Pick: Jets Patriots Betting

Sometimes you just want to believe that the Super Bowl odds are smiling on the Jets, but their run has come to an end. Without a quarterback that the team has some sort of faith in, the Jets will not be able to exploit the weak secondary of the Patriots. With Tom Brady out their picking the Jets defense apart, this just does not look good for the Jets.
