Tips For Betting On Jets Steelers – Jets Get To Prove Their Worth Against The Steelers

The New York Jets pleasantly surprised their fan base and a lot of NFL observers with their week-one thrashing of the Buffalo Bills. They'll try to back up that win in week two.

Why New York Will Win

The betting websites in America are not yet ready to do a complete 180-degree reversal in terms of their assessment of the New York Jets' offense, but they are certainly ready to find out if this unit – maligned so much before the start of the season – could be on the verge on a legitimate and somewhat surprising turnaround.
New York's offense looked to be in deep trouble before this season began. Neither Mark Sanchez nor Tim Tebow inspired much confidence in Jets' fans. The two quarterbacks, who jockeyed for the starting job in the month of August, had not established themselves as smooth pocket passers who can reliably push the ball down the field and generate big plays with any degree of consistency. The Jets figured to struggle on offense, limited at the sport's most important position and hamstrung by distractions in the locker room.

Week one changed all that. The Jets scored more points than anyone else in the whole league, ringing up a big, fat "48" against a Buffalo Bill defense that was supposed to have gotten stronger in the offseason, primarily due to the acquisition of star pass rusher Mario Williams. The Jets made Buffalo look slow and silly, carving up the Bills with repeated downfield strikes in the passing game. Sanchez completed over two-thirds of his passes and looked extremely comfortable in the pocket. The Jets offense surprised a lot of people, and now the idea of going into Pittsburgh and winning doesn't seem so far-fetched at all. The Jets led the Bills, 41-7, only five and a half minutes into the second half. No team played better in week one, so New York should feel very good about itself this week.

Why Pittsburgh Will Win

When you are playing online poker, make sure that Dick LeBeau is not the man staring at you from the other side of the poker table.

LeBeau is the longest-serving active coordinator in the NFL, the Steelers' defensive mastermind since 2004. No other active NFL coordinator has served longer than six years with his current club (2006), and only two men have served that long. The rest of the 29 NFL coordinators have served their current clubs for no more than four years, since 2008. LeBeau is centrally responsible for the run of success Pittsburgh has had under former coach Bill Cowher and current boss Mike Tomlin.

Pittsburgh was carved up by Peyton Manning last week, but the Steelers get Ryan Clark back in their secondary this week and should find it a lot more manageable to exploit Mark Sanchez, a quarterback who is much less accomplished than Peyton. This will give Pittsburgh a huge edge.

Who Will Win

The Jets need to prove that they can win in Pittsburgh before they and their offense can be taken seriously. Expect the Steelers to win in authoritative fashion.
