New York Jets

NFL Team New York JetsThe Jets are on the verge of their third consecutive win, aiming to rise above a .500 record. Despite their ambition, they’ve had a rough stretch on the road, losing 6 of their last 7 away games. Zach Wilson, their quarterback, holds a 60.4% completion rate with 1,097 passing yards. His favorite targets, Garrett Wilson and Tyler Conklin, together clocked 596 receiving yards. The team’s ground game, led by Breece Hall, averages a decent 117.5 yards every game. When it comes to defense, the Jets allow an average of 19.8 points and 351.8 yards each match. However, betting enthusiasts might be cautious considering the Jets’ history of losses on the East Coast. Additionally, their passing yards and 3rd down percentage rank them at the bottom of the NFL.


New York Giants

NFL Team New York GiantsOn the other hand, the Giants are eyeing consecutive victories for the first time this season. With a 2-4-1 SU record in their last seven home games, they need a morale boost. Their quarterback, Daniel Jones, maintains a 68.9% completion rate and 884 passing yards. His key receivers, Darren Waller and Darius Slayton, have amassed 638 yards combined. Saquon Barkley spearheads the Giants’ running game, which averages nearly 100 yards every game. Their defense has been slightly more permeable than the Jets, letting in an average of 24.9 points and 351.4 yards per game. Worryingly for bettors, the Giants have struggled in recent Week 8 games and also post-home wins at MetLife Stadium. Their scoring offense and punt return statistics also lag behind in the NFL rankings.



Although the Jets managed to clinch wins over the Broncos and Eagles, they still don’t appear to be road favorites. But, their defense might tilt the balance against a Giants team plagued with injuries and a weak offensive line. The Giants’ offensive struggles make them vulnerable against the Jets, who boast one of the stronger defensive line-ups in the NFL. For those placing bets, it seems the wise choice might be to back the Jets with a field goal difference on BUSR NFL Odds.
