Sports Betting Sites Favor the Patriots to defeat the Jets in Week 12
The best sports betting sites favor the New England Patriots to defeat the New York Jets by 9.5 points. Curiously, Bostonians are not taking the Jets lightly, while New Yorkers couldn’t care less what happens to the Jets. “Why would the lowly Gang Green pose a problem for the freight train from Foxborough?” asks Owen Pence of the Boston Globe. “Numbers reveal a hazier tale as the Patriots prepare to play New York this Sunday at MetLife Stadium in East Rutherford, N.J.” And then I assume he went into those numbers. But I’ll never know because I’m not subscribing to the Boston Globe.
Meanwhile, “the Jets could play well on Sunday against the Patriots — they usually do at MetLife Stadium (the last five have been decided by a touchdown or less, with the Jets winning two). But does it even matter?” whines Brian Costello of the New York Post. “The Jets’ season is over. A win on Sunday would be window dressing on another terrible year. A loss will be met with a shrug from Jets fans who already are dreaming about who their next coach is going to be.”
Betting New England Patriots
The Patriots average 28.0 points per game (7th) but scored just 10 on the Titans before their bye. Similarly, they gain 108.5 rushing yards per game, but the Titans held them to just 40 on 19 carries. Clearly, the Pats are due for a make-up game. According to the best sports betting sites, The Patriots are 9-1 SU and 8-2 ATS in their last 10 games as a 9.5 or more fave. They also are 8-2 SU and 3-7 ATS in their last 10 on the road when favored by 9.5 or more. And 4-5-1 ATS in their last 10 games following a bye. As well as 3-1 SU and ATS in their last four games after a bye.
Betting NY Jets
Starting QB Sam Darnold has thrown two more picks than TDs (13 and 11 respectively). The Jets rank No. 29 in passing yards per game (192.1) and No. 27 in TD passes. However, if ATS wins counted outside gambling, Todd Bowles wouldn’t be looking through the classifieds every morning. Or forming a support group with Hue Jackson. The Jets are 8-3 ATS in their last 11 games as underdogs at home.
