Jets 3-Point Favs
The New York Jets hope they finally have found their answer at quarterback by trading for the legend Favre. He’ll have a solid offensive line to protect him after the team signed Alan Faneca in the offseason and Thomas Jones should be better after a rough first year in New York. The defense is also underrated and got a boost with the additions of Dewayne Robertson and rookie Jonathan Vilma.
While Bill Parcells has the Miami Dolphins heading in the right direction, it’s going to take time before all the pieces come together. Chad Pennington faces his old team after being cut following the trade for Favre, so he might be looking for a measure of revenge. The Dolphins defense appears weak on paper, however, and might struggle against tougher offenses this season.
Oddsmakers from online sports book Sportsbook.com have made the Jets 3-point favorite on the road. The over under total has been set at 36. Current public betting information notes that 80% of bettors like the Jets –3. Even though they’re on the road, the Jets might not have any problems handling the Dolphins as long as they don’t allow Pennington to get into a rhythm and Ricky Williams doesn’t run wild. Favre should be able to move the ball against Miami’s defense. We predict the Jets over the Dolphins 24-13.
