The Jets hit absolute rock-bottom over the weekend, losing 26-18 on the road in Miami to drop to just 1-7 on the season overall. New York gave up three touchdowns in the second quarter and never managed to get back into the game, scoring just six total points over the final 30 minutes. Sam Darnold threw yet another costly interception, this time turning the ball over on the Dolphins two-yard line after an ill-advised throw under pressure.
RB Le’Veon Bell racked up well over 125 total yards but failed to find the end zone for the fourth consecutive week. Jamison Crowder led the way for the receiving corps, hauling in eight catches for 83 yards and a touchdown. On the other side of the ball, the Jets gave up well over 300 total yards of offense and allowed three touchdowns. New York really struggled to contain Miami WR Preston Williams, as he torched the secondary for 72 yards and two touchdowns on only five receptions.
The seventh loss of the season resulted in major negative consequences across many New York Jets betting markets, including their chances at making the playoffs. After entering Week 9 at +1900 to make the postseason, they have now plummeted to just +3900. However, they still remain at an astronomical +25000 to win the AFC East division title with New England sitting at -2200. Finally, the Jets season win total over under prop shifted all the way back to 3.5 games from 4.5 games.
Jets Week 10 Odds Preview, Spread, Moneyline and Over/Under vs. the Giants
Looking ahead to Week 10, the Jets will battle the New York Giants at MetLife Stadium next Sunday afternoon. It will be interesting to see how the Jets respond after such an embarrassing loss in Week 9, especially since Le’Veon Bell is currently questionable due to a knee injury. If he is able to suit up, he could have a big game against a well below average Giants run defense that is surrendering an average of 127.9 yards per game on the ground (25th overall). As things sit right now, the Giants are 2.5 point favorites in a game that features a 43.5 point total.
Sam Darnold is basically entirely out of the running in regard to the “Most Regular Season Passing Yards” crown, as he sits at +20000 at a couple of books but is off the board entirely across a large majority of betting markets. However, the race itself took a few more fascinating turns over the weekend after big games from both Matthew Stafford and Jameis Winston. It appears as if they are now the prohibitive favorites to win the award at +170 and +380 respectively. Of course, Jared Goff (+500) and Dak Prescott (+700) remain in the hunt as well.
Turning to the MVP award, Lamar Jackson (+300) and Russell Wilson (+300) both jumped up the rankings after leading their teams to very impressive wins in Week 9. Aaron Rodgers (+500) and Deshaun Watson (+500) round out the top four after Patrick Mahomes was forced to miss a second straight game due to a knee injury and dropped to +1100. Taking a look at the “Most Regular Season Rushing Yards” award, Le’Veon Bell fell from +6000 all the way down to +10000 after failing to eclipse the 100-yard mark against Miami. Christian McCaffrey is now clearly in the driver’s seat to take down the rushing crown (+195) after torching the Titans on the ground for 146 yards and two touchdowns on 24 carries in Week 9.
