New York Jets at New England Patriots Pick and Preview

NFL Betting Preview
New York Jets at New England Patriots
Thursday, 8:15 pm Eastern – NFL Network

SBG Global Opening Line: Patriots  -  4   ,  Total  41


The top spot in the AFC East will be on the line Thursday as the New England Patriots host the New York Jets in a game that can be seen on the NFL Network.  The Patriots have owned the AFC East in recent seasons but the Jets believe they can take away the title this season now that Brett Favre is at quarterback. SBG Global reports that early NFL betting has the public taking Patriots at Home.


The Patriots have been fighting injuries all season, losing quarterback Tom Brady, running back Laurence Maroney, safety Rodney Harrison and now linebacker Adalius Thomas. “Any time you lose a player, especially an impact player like (Thomas), it hurts,” cornerback Ellis Hobbs said. “But he’ll tell you himself: the machine can’t stop. It has to keep on rolling.”

The Patriots always seem to find a way to fill in for injured players.  The Patriots have won five straight AFC East titles but they are being tested this year by the Jets.  New York is coming off a 47-3 rout of the St. Louis Rams last week.  Now they get their big test on Thursday against New England. “This is a huge game,” said running back Thomas Jones, “It’s a divisional rival, first of all. It has a lot of implications as far as who’s going to be in sole possession of first place in the division, which leads into other things as the season goes along. It’s a really big game for us and we really look forward to it.”


The Patriots defeated the Jets 19-10 in Week 2 so they would in a sense have a two game lead over New York if they beat the Jets on Thursday. Here is a look at the NFL betting stats for Thursday’s game.  The Patriots have won 9 of the last 10 games against the Jets.  The Patriots are 7-3 ATS in the last 10 games against New York.  The Jets are 3-2 ATS at New England in the past five meetings. New England has lost almost 60% ATS in the past few years laying points at home.


SBG Global Current Line: Patriots  -  3   ,  Total  42             


Earlier this season the matchup between the two teams went under the total and in the last 10 meetings, 6 games have gone under. At New England, four of the last five have gone under.  The Jets have gone under about 60% of the time on the road since 2005.  New England has gone under the total more than 60% of the time at home the past three seasons.
