Ladies and Gentlemen my name is JT Sneaks and I will be taking over the NFL Upset article of the week. Matt Regaw has moved on to the new cappers section here at bangthebook.com. I intend to continue the winning tradition that he started and look forward to picking free winners every week.
This week the upset pick of the week in the NFL belongs to the Washington Redskins.
How is anyone still betting on the New York Jets. Really, I am not kidding this team is horrible. After years of doing well because they could run the ball, the Jets have failed to move the ball on the ground as they rank near the bottom in the league in rushing. This has put the pressure on Mark Sancez and he has folded. In the face of pressure Sanchez has turned over the ball and is cracking under the continuous pressure of the New York media. To make matters worse Rex Ryan does not support him and often mocks him in front of the media.
The Washington Redskins have an up and down season, but just won a big game on the road against the Seattle Seahawks. This was a big win because they were on the road in a cross country game. Rex Grossman looked decent under pressure and the big factor was getting back the services of wide receiver Santana Moss.
The Jets are 1-4 ATS in their last 5 games as a favorite, 1-4 ATS in their last 5 games as a favorite of 0.5-3.0, and 1-5 ATS in their last 6 road games. The Jets have a game next week against the New England Patriots and will be looking past the lowly Redskins and it will cost them dearly.
The NFL upset of the week is the Washington Redskins (+3) over the New York Jets
