NFL Gambling: Packers vs Jets Sportsbook Odds

October 31st, 2010 by

packers vs jetsWith two of the best cover cornerbacks in the NFL gambling action it sound like a crazy idea to try and test the New York Jets’ pass defense. After all, New York (5-1) has the 4th ranked defense in the league, the best record in the NFL and it has very few weaknesses.

But the one weakness this team does have is giving up passing TDs. Granted throughout the first 6 games of the season the team was playing without a banged up Darelle Revis who had a bad hammy but if the Green Bay Packers are going to win this game, this passing strategy is the only chance this team has.

Kickoff for this Sunday matchup is set for 1:05 Eastern Time and SBG Global Sportsbook opened with the Jets as a 5-point favorite with an over/under total at 42.

At this moment in time the Jets look to be the superior team in the sports betting odds in almost every single way. The Packers will have to dress the equipment boy if they suffer any injuries on the plane ride over and key players are missing on both sides of the ball.

Jets on the other hand are coming off a Bye Week and will be in the best shape they’ve been in all season with Revis now 100% healthy and deep threat on offense, WR Santonio Holmes, back in the lineup after a 4-game suspension and full two weeks of practice with the team under his belt.

Most likely Revis and Antonito Cromartie are going to do a good job shutting down QB Aaron Rogers primary targets: Donald Driver and Greg Jennings. However, if Rogers has time to get to his 3rd and 4th options he could have a big day and the Jets could give up a lot of passing TDS.

Green Bay’s running is non-existent with an ineffective Brandon Jackson getting the bulk of the carries. That being said the Packers will come out throwing and if they can somehow buy enough time for Rogers to get the ball downfield the Jets will have problems. And that’s not such a stretch considering that the Jets only have 13.0 sacks this season.

Still, the best the Packers can hope for in this one is to beat the 5-point NFL betting odds spread.
