NFL Betting: Both Jets and Giants Need a Boost in Week 10
It’s hard to say that last week’s game was a low-water mark for the New York Jets. After all, there have been so many of them this season. And we know how incredibly disheartening it is going to be if they went out there and lost to the New York Giants. This is something that would be called the “Battle of the Big Apple” if only it was being held there. Do we cal lit the “Snoopy Bowl”? These teams that both occupy MetLife Stadium will do battle at 1 PM ET on Sunday, with the Jets as the home team.
BetAnySports customers will be able to get reduced juice for better odds before the game begins. And then during the contest itself, there is real-time wagering available through Sports Betting Ultra.
How bad IS IT?
Smart people knew that a loss to the Miami Dolphins was possible last week, especially considering the disdain the Dolphin players have toward former coach Adam Gase.
Well, that happened, and if the honeymoon wasn’t over before, it is now. There were actually reporters asking him after the game whether he thought the Dolphins had done the right thing in firing him. That’s how nasty it has gotten, and it shows how fast the New York press can turn on a coach.
Results are what counts, and it doesn’t look like Sam Darnold has made progress in his second season. In hiring Gase, and furthermore in supporting his power struggle against then-GM Mike Maccagan, owner Christopher Johnson was demonstrating his belief that Gase could accelerate Darnold’s development.
So he could be very much under the gun. And his reputation as someone who likes to engage in finger-pointing has been talked about a little more recently.
A look at the numbers…
Here are the NFL betting odds on this all-New Jersey game:
New York Giants vs. New York Jets NFL Week 10 Betting Odds
|Giants||-2.5 (-105)||43.5 (-103)||-145|
|Jets||+2.5 (-105)||43.5 (-107)||+125|
And those numbers include reduced juice. It’s what helps you avoid laying the -110 at BetAnySports!
Are the Giants much better off?
Going without results will lose the patience of ownership. So even though he has a rookie quarterback in the starting role, don’t expect that Pat Shurmur is going to have legitimate excuses. He has been under fire for his play-calling, which was something that made Eli Manning look a little flat.
Daniel Jones looked like he was going to revive the Giants‘ season after winning his first two starts. But they have lost five in a row at this point and he has committed 15 turnovers. That includes a strip-sack that allowed the Dallas Cowboys to score a touchdown and push the game over the posted total.
What is going to hold the Giants back, no matter how well Jones may play, is their defense. This unit has allowed well over eight yards per pass attempt and 70% completions. This does not bode well for them against capable quarterbacks, but how capable can Darnold be in this situation?
There are arguments to be made for both sides, of course. The atmosphere around the Giants is probably less combustible. We have already heard that from Leonard Williams, who was traded from one team to another just recently. There are great running backs for both teams. However, the Giants use theirs (Saquon Barkley) better than the Jets do theirs (Le’Veon Bell). And the Giants should get back wide receiver Sterling Shepard for this one.
At the same time, Jones simply turns the ball over too much, something likely to give the Jets additional opportunities. And the best unit on the field is the Jets’ defense. They can mitigate the effect of Barkley as someone running from scrimmage, as they give up just 3.1 yards per carry. That shades us toward Gang Green, the home team.
