Jets vs. Bills Pick
Will Thursday night be a defensive struggle in Buffalo when the Bills host the Jets at 8:25PM ET?
According to oddsmakers from online sports book Bovada.lv, the Bills and Jets are a pick’em right now while the over/under currently sits at 40 points. Buffalo opened as a 3-point favorite but the line was bet down a full three points, while the total opened at 42.5 and was bet down to 40.
NEW YORK: The Jets wound up going off as a 1-point home favorite last Sunday so they failed to cover when they lost 23-22 in the final seconds against the Bengals. Ryan Fitzpatrick completed 19-of-35 passes for just 189 yards and an interception, but threw touchdown passes to Quincy Enunwa and Eric Decker. Newcomer Matt Forte played well in his Jets debut, rushing 22 times for 96 yards in the loss.
BUFFALO: The Bills also failed to cover in a 13-7 loss against the Ravens in Baltimore. Rex Ryan’s squad was a 3-point underdog at kickoff and managed a lone LeSean McCoy touchdown in the second quarter. Quarterback Tyrod Taylor did next to nothing, completing 15-of-22 passes for 111 yards with no touchdowns and no interceptions.
OUR PICK: With Sammy Watkins banged up and these two teams possessing decent defenses, look for Thursday night to be a defensive struggle in Buffalo. The under is 4-1 in the last five meetings between these two teams in Buffalo and is 12-5 in the Bills’ last 17 home games overall. The under is also 8-2 in the Jets’ last 10 road games when playing a team with a losing home record.
