New York Jets vs. Denver Broncos
- Moneyline: NYJ (-120) vs DEN (EVEN)
- Spread: Jets -1
- Total: 41 Points
Starting with the spread, there has been some major movement here since the line first opened.
The line first opened up with the Jets being seen as 3-point underdogs and has since changed to the Jets being 1-point favorites.
With both teams still looking to gain their first wins of the season, it is expected that this should be a close game.
However, this does not mean that the Broncos could cover as the Jets surely could take advantage of the shorthanded Broncos as well and look to blow them out.
As for the moneyline, NFL odds are looking at the Jets as the favorites in the one but the Broncos could certainly pull off the win.
The Jets are favored being that they have most of their starters healthy while the Broncos key starters are out with injuries. The Jets are also playing for a reason here as it has been rumored around the organization that if they lose this game, their head coach, Adam Gase, could be on his way out as soon as Friday.
The Broncos are also moving on from Jeff Driskel at quarterback who was replacing the injured Drew Lock and will be starting their third-string Brett Rypien.
The fact that they are putting their third-string QB at the helm of things almost certainly plays a role as to why the Jets are favored to win. That being said, the Jets are favored here for a reason and bettors should not be taking them seriously in this one.
Looking at the game total, it might seem as if it is set a little too high for two of the bottom-feeding teams in the league. Looking at the Broncos side of things, they have only scored over two touchdowns once in their first three games while the Jets have not scored over two at all.
Both teams are clearly struggling to get into the endzone, and it definitely shows. That being said the under here would be the wise bet to make.
