Eagles-Jets Preview

The Philadelphia Eagles and New York Jets will put a bow on the 2009 preseason when the two teams meet at Giants Stadium at 7:00 PM ET on Thursday.

Bet Eagles at Jets

For a team that many people believe is a Super Bowl contender, the Eagles have not had a great preseason. They’re currently 1-2, although the Jets have an identical record and some pundits believe they’re a playoff team as well.

It goes to show you that preseason means very little, even though teams never want to lose.

The Eagles will play newly signed quarterback Michael Vick extensively in this game, so it’ll be interesting to see how the former Falcon does with more than just the handful of snaps he got last week against the Jaguars.

For the Jets, rookie quarterback Mark Sanchez might not get more than a series or two before he’s pulled for backup Kellen Clemens and third-stringer Erik Ainge. New York’s backups will get a good test against Vick, who was a dual-threat before being hauled off to prison for 23 months on federal dog-fighting charges.

Oddsmakers from online sports book SPORTSBETTING.com have made the Eagles 3-point road underdogs against the Jets for Thursday night’s game. The over/under total has been established at 36.5.

The odds favor the Jets in this matchup, as New York is 9-1 against the spread when playing on Thursday since 1993. The Eagles are just 1-8 ATS in non-conference games over the last three seasons.

The final preseason game is the most unpredictable game to handicap and thus we’ll go with the trends and take the home Jets –3. Vick might dazzle on a couple of plays (assuming he can shake the rust off, that is), but the Jets should sneak out a tight win at home.

NFL Preseason Week 4: Eagles at Jets Odds & Over/Under Totals:

Philadelphia Eagles +3 Over 36.5

New York Jets –3 Under 36.5
