Patriots Jets Betting Tips – Jets Make Patriots Feel Even Worse
New England Patriots @ New York Jets – Sunday October 21, 2012 4:25PM EST
By the time the week six game between the New England Patriots and Seattle Seahawks was over, New England quarterback Tom Brady was repaid for his pregame prediction of a New England win by listening to several Seattle players yelling in his ear. The football betting experts know that it is not a feeling that Brady wants to repeat, but he may not have a choice in week seven as the Patriots face the New York Jets. The Seattle Seahawks have a top five NFL passing defense and the Patriots were unable to make key offensive plays against that defense. The Jets also have a top five NFL passing defense, and the results could be the same for New England.
The New York Jets know that a win is a win in the NFL, but beating a young and inexperienced Colts team is not going to take New York very far. The online sports betting world wants to see New York pull that kind of a performance off against a top contender, and that is exactly what may happen in week seven. Not only is this an important divisional game for the Jets and the Patriots, but it is New York’s chance to show that it can win big games and that the circus it has created around itself can be focused into a winning effort.
Why the Patriots Will Win
The Patriots’ defense allowed way too many long plays against the Seattle Seahawks and that is what eventually cost New England the game. One of the things that the betting experts see in this game is that the New York Jets do not have a deep passing game and, therefore, will not challenge the Patriots’ secondary the way the Seahawks did. If the New England defensive line can hold up against the Jets’ running game, then the Patriots’ offense can do the rest and bring this important divisional win to New England’s side.
Why the Jets Will Win
The Jets did not look any less chaotic against the Colts. The Jets just looked like more controlled chaos than just random chaos in that game. The secondary is definitely missing Darrelle Revis, but the players put in to play the game are holding up very well without him. The Jets can run the ball and New England has a problem against the run. The Jets can defend the middle of the field and that is where the Patriots run its offense. This game will be a battle of wills and, as strange as it may sound, the Patriots just may not have the will to win this game.
The Bottom Line
New England is getting killed by its terrible defense and that will not get any better in week seven. If the Patriots felt bad after week six, then the Jets are about to make New England feel a lot worse.
Pick: New York Jets
