Saturday Night Special: Jets at Cowboys

New York Jets Marshall

Many NFL pundits were mixed on what to expect from the New York Jets at the beginning of the season, but thanks to a solid 8-5 record with Week 15 on the horizon, fans of the J-E-T-S haven’t been complaining. New York travels to “Jerry World” for a date with the Dallas Cowboys in the first Saturday contest of the season.

Shark Bites
  • The total has gone UNDER in nine of the Jets' last 10 games as road favorites in December.
  • The total has gone OVER in seven of the Cowboys' last 10 games at home in December.
  • The Jets are 5-0 ATS in their last five games in December.

The Jets have been having some issues covering the spread when facing the Cowboys as of late, however, as the ‘Boys are 3-0 ATS in the last three meetings between the clubs.

To say the 2015 season has been a lost one for the Cowboys would be a massive understatement. Dallas has been underwhelming on the field (4-9 SU) and equally as awful at the betting window (4-9 ATS) mainly due to a litany of injuries, and the absence of star quarterback Tony Romo has been extremely evident in Big D. Matt Cassel can only take you so far at this point in his career.

Opening Odds & Computer Pick

Betting fans looking to side with the Dallas Cowboys in this one found them as 3-point underdogs earlier in the week at Bovada, while the total was sitting at 42.

Prediction-scoring formulas run on this game pick a potential 22-19 result in favor of the Jets. View the computer score prediction and who will win the pick on the moneyline for all upcoming NFL matchups here.
