Packers Jets Betting – Jets Run Over Packers At The New Meadowlands

A few online betting players had the Green Bay Packers and the New York Jets meeting in the Super Bowl in February, and they still could, so Sunday’s matchup could be a preview of the big game. The Jets have a few edges, mainly that they’re coming off a bye week, and they have a ground game that is going to grind out a win against the exhausted and banged-up Packers.

  • What: NFL betting
  • When: Sunday, October 31st, 1:00 PM ET
  • Where: New Meadowlands, East Rutherford, NJ
  • Pick: New York Jets -6

What’s On The Line

The Packers (4-3) beat up on Brett Favre and the Minnesota Vikings, dropping them 28-24 to avenge last year’s loss at Lambeau Field, while the Jets (5-1) are coming off a bye and should be well-rested for this home game. The Packers have been all over the place this year, but a win would show why many NFL betting players picked them to represent the NFC in the Super Bowl.

Offensive Matchups: Packers Jets Betting

Aaron Rodgers was 21-of-34 for 287 yards, two touchdowns and two scores for the Packers, and you have to remember: he has no Ryan Grant in the backfield, Jermichael Finley is gone for the year, and Donald Driver was limited because of an injury. The Packers’ explosive offense has been decimated, but Rodgers is still one of the top quarterbacks in the league, and players are stepping up: James Jones had 107 receiving yards against the Vikings.

The Jets are still a run-first team, coming in second in the NFL in that category, but they could end up opening up the playbook a bit more for Mark Sanchez, who isn’t turning the ball over as much this year. He has weapons in the passing game with Santonio Holmes, Braylon Edwards, Jerricho Cotchery and Dustin Keller. Sanchez looks as though he could be ready to accept more responsibility, but will he get it?

Defensive Matchups: Packers Jets Betting

The Packers forced Favre to throw three picks in the second half of their meeting, but they still gave up 402 yards of offense, including a ghastly 196 yards on the ground. Desmond Bishop returned a pick back for a score, but it wasn’t the best showing from the Green Bay defense, which ranks 18th in the league. Cornerback Charles Woodson hasn’t been the force he was last season, when he won the Defensive Player of the Year award, and linebacker Clay Matthews wasn’t a factor. The Packers are 23rd in the NFL against the run, which could spell disaster against the Jets.

You’d be surprised to know that the Jets are only 12th in the league defensively, including 22nd against the pass, and a lot of that has to do with an ailing Darrelle Revis, who has been struggling with an ailing hamstring. This has forced rookie Kyle Wilson into action, and he’s been picked on a lot. Antonio Cromartie has been excellent, but he can only cover one guy. If Revis is healthy, the Jets may have the best set of corners in the league, and it looks like he is 100% now.

Notable Injuries: Packers Jets Betting

End Ryan Pickett (ankle), Driver (thigh), safety Nick Collins (knee) and linebacker Brad Jones (shoulder) are all question marks for the Packers.

The Jets are pretty much healthy and should have a full team for this massive matchup.

Outlook and Pick: Packers Jets Betting

NFL betting odds have the Jets as a 6-point favorite at home, and Green Bay is 0-4 as a road team against the Jets since 1981. Even though it’s a new stadium, the result should be the same as the Jets are coming off a bye, so they’re fresh, while the Packers just got finished in a physically and emotionally draining game against a division rival (and a former Green Bay legend). The Jets would like to let Sanchez go down the field more, but if the Packers can’t stop the run, why change it up? Look for the Jets to wear down the Packers’ front seven by running the ball, which also keeps Rodgers on the sideline. Take the Jets to cover in your sports betting book.

Stan’s Pick: New York Jets
