5 Patriots-Jets Prop Bets & Betting Lines To Back On MNF
  • URL Copied!

The rejuvenated New York Jets, with Sam Darnold back under center and coming off a big win over the Dallas Cowboys, get a true test on Monday Night Football when they play host to Tom Brady and the unbeaten New England Patriots.

The Patriots have covered the spread in four of their last five road games but are 1-5 ATS in their last six trips to New York. The Jets own a 7-1-1 ATS streak at home against teams with a winning road record.

Let’s take a look at some of the best bets fans of NFL betting should consider:

PICK 1: Patriots -9.5

The Patriots have owned the Jets, beating them seven straight times by an average of 19.3 ppg. Tom Brady should be motivated after a pair of subpar outings and the Patriots’ defense has allowed more than 223 total yards in a game just twice in six outings. Last Sunday’s impressive win over the Cowboys notwithstanding, Darnold has historically been better on the road, with a home QB rating 23 points lower than the league average.

PICK 2: Under 44 Points

Last Sunday in his first game since Week 1, Sam Darnold was 23 of 32 for 338 yards and two touchdowns against the Cowboys.

Sam Darnold looked great against Cowboys last Sunday, but the Patriots are allowing just 8.0 ppg and 235 ypg. QBs are completing just 53.5% of passes, and Darnold isn’t the most accurate passer to begin with. The Patriots’ offense is in a funk of its own and the Jets’ defense is adequate and should be emotionally charged at home to hold the Pats to under 30 points.

PICK 3: First Turnover – Jets

No team ball-hawks like the Patriots, who have forced eight fumbles (only two recovered) and picked off a stunning 14 passes in just six games. Darnold finished one INT off the league lead last year behind Ben Roethlisberger, but in 261 fewer attempts. With the pressure the Pats bring and the inability the Jets’ offensive line has had in keeping defenders off their QB – regardless of who it is – eventually New York is going to turn it over.

PICK 4: Patriots -2.5 First Quarter

The Patriots average nearly nine points per game in the first quarter alone, second-most in the NFL behind the Ravens. And they’ve allowed just seven points in the first quarter – all year.

That alone is reason to take a leap on this first-quarter spread. But also consider the Jets have managed just 2.6 ppg in the opening quarters while allowing 6.6. The Jets outscored the Cowboys 7-0 in the first quarter on Sunday but that’s not enough to buck the other trends.

The Patriots have allowed only one touchdown in the first quarter all season. Don’t expect the Jets to be able to score much early.

PICK 5: Double Results – Patriots/Patriots

The Patriots start strong and end just as strong. The Jets start exceptionally slow and against New England, it’s going to be very tough to climb out of a hole. The Patriots won’t let Darnold do to them what he did to the Cowboys last week.
