Todd Bowles’ Team (4-1) is ON FIRE after their Great Victory (34-20) against the Washington Redskins last week, raising the expectations for an equal-opportunity game with the New England Patriots (5-0). According to Oddsmaker, The Pats are -9 points vs. the Jets, in what promises to be the must-see game this weekend. The Over/Under line stands at 42. As visiting team, the Jets enjoy a comfortable 4-0 on-the-road ATS record.


Junior Defensive End Leonard Williams had some very “humble” remarks to make, when the New York Jets emerged victorious against the Washington Redskins. The first half went without much excitement… followed Locker Room Motivational Speech by prodigal son Richardson, to then… man-up and accomplish some 24 unanswered points during the first 16 mins of the second bit – ALONE! – “It’s going to be a great game to get my hands on him and mess him up”- is what Williams told the NJ Advance Media, about his soon-to-be encounter with Tom Brady. This show of bravado serves the Jets well, who ought to confront New England with their best game YET, if they hope to win.

Is the -9 Spread justified? – The line on the Pats had been even larger, but the cash flow coming into the Plus Side, during the last few days, made handicappers at lower the figure a bit. Expectations run high for a new round of New Englander bulldozing: Pats are defending Super Bowl Champs, and they’ve been topping and ruling the AFC camp, since the beginning of the season. NE’s chances to seize their division stand at a nearly-perfect 98.7%, while their chances to reach the playoffs remain at a comfortable 81.9%.


The Jets may have something of a wildcard in store, in the shape of cornerback Darrelle Revis. He was just released from the Pats’ payroll last March, when his 1-year contract expired, sending him back to the Jets, who may now count on him to provide them with much-needed scoop about the comings and goings of the New England strategy.

Buster Skrine is questionable due to a concussion; Bilal Power is probable with an ankle sprain, and Marcus Williams is also afflicted. The Pats have only minor injuries: Marcus Cannon and Jabaal Sheard, have both sustained tiny mishaps.

Prediction: The Jets defense is pretty well-built to face the Patriots. They may have a hard time winning the game itself, but their chances to cover the spread are grand. The Jets have a 4-1 ATS for their last 5 meetings at New England, and 7-1 in their last 8 games overall – My call is: take the Jets, on +9.  Sign Up to TODAY and receive a 50% Bonus on your First Deposit.
