Pats Have Been a Brutal Bet vs Jets in Recent Years

If you had told me prior to the season that the New England Patriots, Buffalo Bills and New York Jets would be tied for the lead in the AFC East standings through five weeks, I would’ve laughed in your face. But ahead of the Patriots-Jets’ Week 6 clash, that’s exactly where we sit. Predicting the NFL is hard, folks.

Xbet opened the Pats as 9.5-point road faves with a total of 47.5.

Shark Bites
  • The Patriots are 8-1 SU and 7-2 ATS in their last nine games in the early afternoon.
  • The Patriots are 10-3 ATS in their last 13 games as favorites.
  • The total has gone OVER in 11 of the Patriots’ last 15 games against the Jets.

The negatives for the Patriots can be attributed largely to the defense that ranks near the bottom of the NFL in the majority of defensive categories. The unit looked like it was getting back on track in light of New England’s 19-14 Thursday Night Football triumph over Tampa Bay, but if it wasn’t for Nick Folk’s misadventures while trying to kick field goals, the outcome could’ve easily been different.

Tom Brady has 11 touchdowns compared to one interception, so the ageless wonder is clearly not going to be an issue under center. New England has been getting the job done when it comes to winning outright vs the Jets, evidenced by a 10-2 SU record in their last 12 vs New York, but they haven’t been covering the spread. The Pats are an ugly 1-6-1 ATS in their previous eight vs the Jets, so tread lightly when betting them as big road chalk in this one.

With the majority of their fan base wanting the franchise to tank the season, the Jets have done the opposite and are riding a surprising three-game winning streak heading into the contest. Josh McCown has been serviceable under center for the Jets, as the veteran completed 23 of 30 passes for 194 yards and two touchdowns with an interception in his squad’s Week 5 win over the Cleveland Browns.

OVER bettors are cashing out when the Jets and Pats square off. In the past 15 meetings between the AFC East rivals, the OVER is 11-4.
