NFL Free Pick: BUF/NYJ
AFC East Division rivals meet in New Jersey this weekend as the New York Jets host the slumping Buffalo Bills in a game that could be pivotal to the Jets’ playoff hopes.
Oddsmakers from online sports book Sportsbook.com have made the Jets -8 point spread favorite. The over/under for this game has been set at 41 total points.
Key Trend: Buffalo is just 1-6 against the spread in its last seven games while the Jets are 4-2 against the spread in their last six. The total has also gone under in five of New York’s last seven games when playing at home against the Bills.
Key Stat: The Jets are averaging over 126 yards a game on the ground this season while the Bills are allowing 110.2 rushing yards per game. The Jets are also limiting opponents to only 83.5 rushing yards per game.
Game Outlook: It’s bounce back time for the Jets. After beating the previously undefeated Tennessee Titans on the road three weeks ago, New York has lost their last two games and all of a sudden are in a three-way tie with the Miami Dolphins and New England Patriots in the AFC East. But this is the week they get back on track. Since posting 50-plus points against the Chiefs three weeks ago, the Bills have managed just six total points in their last two games. Starting quarterback Trent Edwards is expected to miss yet another game with a groin injury, which means the highly ineffective and brutal J.P. Losman will start under center again for Buffalo. The Jets, like many teams who face him, will eat Losman alive and it should be a surprise if the Bills fail to reach the end zone for the third consecutive game. We know the Jets have struggled lately, but take them in confidence this week.
