Thursday Night Game Analysis – Jets vs. Patriots

New England Patriots 2014The Jets hope to clinch a victory for the first time in six losses when they go to Foxborough to pay a visit to an injured Patriots side for their AFC East game on Thursday night. Many Live betting fans were very disappointed when they saw the Jets lose their past five meetings both ATS and SU, but the team was able to go 3-1 ATS in their past four games against New England.

The Patriots’ betting line opened with them being the favorites by 7.5 points, and early during the week, the total was 45.5.

Throughout the years, the Jets were able to shake the Patriots a few times, even though five of their last six games were lost. New York broke a losing streak of five games with a win last season of 30-27 after they ended up losing the first one 13-10, and on both occasions they were able to cover the spread.

Actually, three of the last four meetings between them were decided by three points. The Jets should also benefit from the injuries suffered last week by Patriots players, as The Boston Globe’s Shalise Manza reported that RB Stevan Ridley (knee) and LB Jerod Mayo (knee) are out for the rest of the season.

The Patriots were able to bounce back very nicely since the team’s doubters said that they weren’t alive anymore after Week 4, when they lost on Monday 41-14 to the Chiefs. New England were able to beat the last two teams they played against with an 80-39 combined score, and in both meetings they had no trouble covering the spread, with a total that went over on each occasion.

Even though very important players were injured, which include QB Tom Brady, who suffered an injury to the ankle, the team’s Live betting fans can say that there isn’t a single team in the NFL that is better at bouncing back. The Patriots recently beat the Bills 37-22 being the one-point dogs on the road, and the team was able to cover three of their last four meetings at home against opponents in the AFC East.
