Titans vs Jets Odds - Titans ground game won’t find room against Jets

NFL football bettingThe Titans vs Jets odds matches up two AFC teams with different moods heading into the game. At 0-2, the Titans are desperate for a win while online sports betting cappers know that the Jets are a confident group at 2-0. Desperation won’t matter in this contest as the Titans’ running game won’t find open lanes, which means they’ll be strapped for points.

Titans vs Jets odds: Jets -2.5

  • WHAT: NFL betting
  • WHEN: Sunday, September 27st – 1:00 PM ET
  • WHERE: Giant Stadium – East Rutherford, NJ
  • PICK: Jets -2.5, Under 37.5

Titans vs Jets odds maker breakdown: The Storyline
The Titans (0-2) lost just three games last year but have already lost two in 2009. Not many teams can dig out of a 0-2 hole but they better start soon. Now they face what appears to be the top team in the AFC, and if they can’t win on Sunday, their playoff hopes can be flushed away.

As for the Jets (2-0), they are flying high after wins against the Houston Texans and New England Patriots. On top of that, since the Titans and Jets already have a common opponent (which the Jets dominated and the Titans lost to at home), they’ll be even more secure in this matchup. Sportsbook odds makers have noticed that the Jets haven’t allowed an offensive touchdown yet this year.

Betting Edge: Titans

Titans vs Jets odds maker breakdown: Offense
The Titans offense is still a one-trick pony, and that pony is getting spent. The Titan got nearly 300 yards of total offense from running back Chris Johnson last week and they still managed to lose. The passing game just drags this team down and until they work that out, there’s little hope for them to do any damage in the AFC.

The Jets offense hasn’t been the most explosive unit in the NFL this year but they have been effective. Quarterback Mark Sanchez looks like an early favorite for rookie of the year and the receiving corps has been competent. The running game has been reliable between Leon Washington and Thomas Jones, and NFL betting fans know that with this defense, they don’t need a lot of points to win games.

Betting Edge: Even

Titans vs Jets odds maker breakdown: Defense
The Titans still have a solid defense but it is clearly not the unit they had last year. Their secondary was shredded last week by Houston and the defensive line just isn’t as good without Albert Haynesworth. This is still a Top 10 unit but not dominant squad they were last year.

Meanwhile, the Jets might be the best defense in the NFL. They have yet to allow an offensive touchdown in the first two weeks of the season, and it’s not as if they’ve been playing the Detroit Lions every week. The Jets shut down an explosive Texans offense, and they kept Tom Brady and the Patriots out of the end zone. They won’t let Chris Johnson run wild, which means it will be a long day for the Titans.

Betting Edge: Jets

Titans vs Jets odds maker breakdown: Notable Injuries
Both teams are fairly healthy but keep an eye on Jets cornerback Lito Sheppard, who was knocked out of the game last week with a quadriceps injury.

Betting Edge: Titans

Titans vs Jets odds for total: 37.5
The total is low in this game but there are two good defenses playing. The Titans will be better than last week as they want to make amends for that performance, and they’re also desperate for a win. Meanwhile, the Jets haven’t given up many points this season and won’t again on Sunday.

Pick: Under

Titans vs Jets betting breakdown: Outlook and Pick
It’s just hard to see the Titans winning if their ground game isn’t carrying them, and against the vaunted Jets defense, it won’t be. The Titans are desperate for the win but they just aren’t the team they were last year.

STAN’S PICK: Jets -2.5
