Odds/Point Spread: New York Jets -3, Total Odds: 37.5 

Since the Jets may be stronger than the Buccaneers, take the home team at the money line. The Jets’ defense recently tormented Carolina, and if they play like they did in Week 1, Tampa Bay will suffer. With Kyle Trask in charge, one might not have confidence in the Buccaneers to move the ball often. Rushing against this Jets team is difficult, thus, New York’s defense will be essential. 

On the other side of the ball, the Jets will continue to rely on their ground game, and Zach Wilson has much to prove in the preseason. In its previous seven preseason games, Tampa Bay was 1-6 SU and ATS, while New York is 7-1-1 SU and 7-2 ATS.

Tampa Bay Buccaneers vs New York Jets Betting Trends

Tampa Bay Buccaneers vs New York Jets: The Buccaneers are about to embark on what is probably going to be a terrible season, giving them a chance to choose a “franchise” quarterback early in next year’s draft. They don’t currently have anything comparable, therefore it’s a wonderful thing. As the starter, Zach Wilson has performed admirably for the Jets in his first two preseason games. This Sunday, New York’s offense should have little issue facing a Tampa Bay squad that gave up 256 passing yards to the Steelers the previous week.

Free Pick and Prediction: New York Jets will win 21-18.
