Oakland Raiders vs New York Jets
Over/Under : 46.5
Odds Analysis :
After being held to less than 19 points in seven of their first eight games, the Jets offense has suddenly caught fire scoring 34 points in back to back games. Darnold has really come into his own lately and the Jets are averaging 25 points per game over the last 4 . Similarly, Derek Carr and the Raiders have been no slouch of their own averaging 24.5 in that same time. While the Raider’s defense has looked better of late i don’t expect that trend to hold up. Both teams’ defenses are giving up an average of 25 points per game but the Raiders have been especially bad on the road allowing an average of nearly 32 this year. I also like the fact that this could be a close game (possibly OT) but likely a shootout.
Notable Trends :
The over is 5-1 in the last 6 head to head meetings. The over is 4-0 in the Jet’s last 4 games overall and 5-1 in their last 6. The over is 6-2 in Oakland’s last 8 overall. The over is 8-1 in Oakland’s last 9 against the AFC East. The over is 4-1 in the Jet’s last 6 games in November
I expect these two teams to start fast and score often. I feel like it will be closely contested but the home team will pull it out in the fourth quarter in a nail biter. Final score : Jets win 31-27
