Jets Redskins Betting: Jets Try To Halt Slide Against Inconsistent Redskins

The New York Jets were hoping they could overtake the New England Patriots this season in the AFC East. Now, they’re in a familiar fight just to get one of the AFC’s final playoff spots.

New York Jets @ Washington Redskins - Sunday, December 4

Sports betting line: New York Jets -3
Why New York Jets Will Win

The NFL betting lines experts who try to create action in sportsbooks are well aware that the New York Jets have one of the most impotent offenses in all of professional football. Savvy NFL observers know that quarterback Mark Sanchez is not one of the more impressive quarterbacks around, meaning that the Jets won’t light up the scoreboard on a typical Sunday. However, for all the problems the Jets have – problems which crop up every single season – the Washington Redskins are in a worse position. Ever since head coach Mike Shanahan came to the nation’s capital to try to revive a moribund franchise, the quarterback guru and play-calling wizard has utterly and entirely struck out. Shanahan’s stock has plummeted, as the Super Bowl-winning coach has lost his touch in the realms of both player selection and play selection. Donovan McNabb was supposed to boost the Redskins’ fortunes last season, but Shanahan shockingly benched him in favor of Rex Grossman, a spectacularly interception-prone quarterback with nothing close to the reputation McNabb enjoyed while with the Philadelphia Eagles. The Redskins gave John Beck a try at the quarterback spot but have reverted to Grossman this season, and the results are hardly inspiring, to say the least. Washington remains under .500, looking up at Dallas and the New York Giants in the NFC East. The Jets’ defense should be able to get two or more takeaways in this game, and that should be enough for the visitors to prevail at FedEx Field as long as Sanchez can display good ball security in his own right.

Why Washington Will Win

When you do your homework and assess your sports bet on this game, you know that as mediocre as the Redskins are, the Jets could very possibly make them look good. Few people expected the Denver Broncos and Tim Tebow to beat the Jets in a recent Thursday night game on Nov. 17, but the Jets’ offense was so putrid that the Broncos were able to win despite scoring only one offensive touchdown. New York quarterback Mark Sanchez threw a pick-six in that loss, while the Jets’ defense couldn’t produce one last stand in the final minutes. If the Jets could blow a golden opportunity for a win on the road against Denver, they can just as easily lose against Washington. The Jets’ offense will always keep mediocre opponents in games; it’s just a question of the Redskins’ ability to convert the chances that come their way.

Who Will Win

It’s doubtful that the Jets will continue to tumble. Coach Rex Ryan’s team usually rebounds in December to get the fifth or sixth wild card spot in the AFC playoffs. The Jets can’t be trusted to win division titles, but they can be trusted to win 10 games per season.
