The New York Jets, a team ridiculed in the offseason, are now attracting a lot of betting love.
Heading into Sunday’s game at the Tennessee Titans, the Jets are 3-0 against the spread and have won two in a row straight-up. Rookie quarterback Geno Smith has been better than expected, and coach Rex Ryan has assembled a stout defense that has emerged as one of the best in the league early in the season.
The Titans have been kind to bettors as well, going 2-0-1 against the number and are the favorites over the Jets. But that line has been shrinking.
