New York Jets Betting Trends

The Jets have failed to cover in six of their last eight road games and are 1-4 against the number in their last five games played in the month of September. They're also winless at 0-5 at the betting window in their last five road games versus a team with a winning home record.

Oakland Raiders Betting Trends

The Raiders have covered the spread in five of their last six games played in the month of September and are 4-1 against the spread in their last five games played at home. They're also 7-3 at the betting window in their last 10 games versus AFC opponents.

OUR PREDICTION: The under is 4-1 in the Jets' last five games overall, is 9-3 in their last 12 road games, and is 7-1-1 in their last nine games coming off a loss. While the Raiders have the fire power to help push the total over, I just don't trust the Jets. They have one of the worst offenses in the NFL and the Raiders showed marked improvement defensively last week versus the Titans. I like the under here.
