New York Jets at Jacksonville Jaguars Overview

New York Jets

The Jets perhaps have sunk to an all-new low as they were the team that the Cleveland Browns ended their 18-game losing streak against. Over the span of just two weeks, the Jets went from being a heroic outfit that dazzled audiences on a Monday Night opener in Detroit to the goat of the AFC. In their loss against the Brownies, the Jets blew a 14-point lead failing to cover as a 3.5-point pup on the road in Cleveland.

Jacksonville Jaguars

The Jaguars suffered their first defeat of the 2018 season when they were edged out by divisional rival Tennessee in a real defensive struggle. No offensive touchdowns were scored in the game, as the Titans would defeat the Jags by a score of 9-6 in a game decided by field goals. Previous to this, the Jaguars defeated the New York Giants and then the defending AFC Champion New England Patriots in back-to-back outings.

Reasons to Back New York

The stock in the Jets is through the floor after they fell against the Browns. What this creates, in essence, is an opportunity to take back the Jets with an inflated point spread. No one will want a piece of Gang Green which means we will be getting more points likely than we should in this affair. That in itself is a reason back to the Jets when NFL markets are especially tight.

Reasons to Avoid Jacksonville

The Jaguars have relied heavily on their defense to get the job done in their first two victories this season. Their offense, however, has looked quite inconsistent. While this may not seem like much of a concern against a team like New York with a rookie quarterback, the Jets have a solid backfield of runners (Isaiah Crowell and Bilal Powell) to keep Jacksonville's defense on the field. New York's defense is a turnover generator, and this does not fare well for the Jags as they have only created one turnover in their own right, this season.

New York Jets at Jacksonville Jaguars Prediction 09/29/2018

The Jets have a penchant for playing up to the level of elite teams. It’s what they are known for. New York loses games they should win and wins games they should lose. This is one of the latter scenarios and an upset perhaps is not out of the realm of possibility. Be that as it may, there is plenty of equity in taking the points. The Jets cover in another defensive-oriented game.
