NFL Gambling Predictions: Jets vs Broncos Odds Football

October 17th, 2010 by

broncos vs jetsThe Denver Broncos are just about where most people expected them to be after 5 games into the 2010 NFL gambling season: 2-3 and tied for last place in the AFC West.

But those numbers don’t tell the whole story and while the team may be tied for last in the division, they’re also just 2 games out first place and two of their losses have come against two of the best teams in the NFL (Baltimore and Indianapolis).

Those also don’t tell you that QB Kyle Orton have been a top 3 QB in the league thus far and that the passing game is the second best in the NFL (346.6 ypg and 8 TDs). All things considered this Denver team has its flaws but it’s much better than its 2-3 record indicates and it will likely beat the Jets (4-1) this weekend in Denver.

Kickoff for this Sunday1matchup is set for 4:10 Eastern Time and sbg sportsbook opened with the Jets as a 4-point favorite with an over/under total at 41.

Granted, the Jets are the real deal and one of the top teams in the NFL betting odds action and front runner to win the Super Bowl. But if there’s a team out there that can beat the red-hot Jets right now it’s the Broncos. New York has won 4 straight games and in the parody riddled NFL that streak can’t last forever.

The Jets biggest weakness all year has been its pass defense which ranks 23rd in the league and is giving up 234.6 yards per game. It’s also given up a heap of passing TDs (9) and looks ripe to be picked apart by Orton. Orton has played brilliantly this year with a 97.8 passer rating, 1,733 yards, 8 TDs and just 3 INTs.

The last decent QB this team faced was Tom Brady and New York held him in check. However, they also gave up over 300 yards to Miami QB Chad Henne and 3 passing TDs to Brett Favre.

Coming off a short week after a taxing Monday Night game against the Vikings this Jets squad will not be in top form and the Broncos look to be in good position to take advantage.

Pick the Broncos to pull off the sports betting upset.
