Previewing Patriots vs. Jets

Monday Night Football brings us the battle between the 0-8 New York Jets and the 2-5 New England Patriots. Not quite the battle most of the country is excited to for, but it’s football! Both teams have played poorly, as the Jets have lost eight in a row and the Patriots have lost four in a row. At least one team will break their streak tonight.

This Monday the odds favor Cam Newton and company, as the Patriots are 10-point favorites on the road. The point total is is a paltry 41.5, implying 25.75 points for New England and 15.75 points for New York. So far, the Patriots are 3-4 against the spread while the Jets are 1-7. New York has hit the under in five of their eight games, while New England has hit the under in four of their seven matchups this season.

As a 10-point road favorites, Patriots backers are making themselves known at DraftKings Sportsbook. Betters appear to be all in on New England, but not due to how well they’ve been playing. The only reason to be on the Patriots during their losing streak is because they are playing the worst team in the league. And to add insult to losses, Joe Flacco takes the lead with Sam Darnold out tonight. In Flacco’s two starts, he’s lost by 24 and 20 points to the Dolphins and Cardinals.

With 70 percent of the handle and68 percent of the bets going for New Englans and the points, not many bettors believe the Jets can put up a fight tonight. The same is true with the moneyline, as 83 percent of the handle and 86 percent of the bets favor the road team.

As for the point total, bettors are split, but leaning under, with 57 percent of the handle and 55 percent of the bets banking on the game going under 41.5 points.
