NFL Free Pick: NYJ/SF
The New York Jets look to rebound from their tough home loss to the Denver Broncos last Sunday when they travel to San Francisco and take on the 49ers, who are coming off a win over Buffalo.
Oddsmakers from online sports book Sportsbook.com have made the Jets -4 point spread favorite. The over/under for this game has been set at 44.5 total points.
Key Trend: The Jets are 4-1 against the spread in their last five games and 7-2 against the spread in their last nine games on the road. The 49ers meanwhile are 3-6 against the spread in their last nine games and just 5-10-1 against the spread in their last 16 games at home.
Key Stat: The Jets dominant the statistical categories in this matchup, including points for (28.3 to 21.8), points against (26.1 to 22.3), passing yards per game (214.3 to 205.8), and rushing yards per game (132.1 to 98.5).
Game Outlook: The Jets suffered a huge letdown last week in a home loss to Denver, which was rather surprising since they beat the previously undefeated Tennessee Titans on the road the Sunday before. But they should bounce back nicely against an inconsistent 49ers team that has trouble running the ball and stopping opponents’ passing games. Brett Favre has to limit the turnovers that could wind up giving San Fran easy points. The spread being so low is a gift because the Jets are coming off a loss and traveling cross-country. It might be tighter than some pundits expect, but the J.E.T.S. should walk away with a cover.
