The Jets snapped a three-game slide with last week’s 21-14 win in Houston, while the Eagles look to rebound from last weekend’s 13-7 road loss to the New York Giants that put the brakes on a two-game straight up and against the spread win streak.

Philadelphia is a 7-point favourite to win on the NFL odds, with a total of 45.0.

NFL Point Spread and Betting Analysis

With the support of just 36 per cent of sports bettors, the Jets have faded to 7-point underdogs since opening at +6.5. The total has seen plenty of movement since opening at 45.0, briefly climbing to 46.0. But with the UNDER attracting 69 per cent of bets, it has since dipped back to 45.

Sunday afternoon’s matchup at MetLife Stadium marks the first meeting between these two teams since October 2019. The Jets have been thoroughly outclassed by Philadelphia in head-to-head action, losing outright in eight straight meetings since 1987, and covering the spread just once during that stretch. The Eagles have effectively contained the Jets’ offence, allowing an average of less than 14 points per game over their past five dates, while claiming victory by an average margin of 14.2 points. With New York struggling to generate offence, total points have topped 41 just once in their past six matchups, fuelling a current 3-1 run for the UNDER.

Philadelphia Eagles

After averaging an impressive 34.5 points per game in a preceding 3-1 straight up run, the Eagles offence fell flat in last week’s loss to the Giants. Jalen Hurts turned in arguably his worst outings since taking over the reins as starting quarterback, squandering a pair of first-half drives into the New York red zone by throwing interceptions, and adding insult to injury with a third pick early in the second half. Complicating matters for Hurts is an ankle injury that limited him in practice on Wednesday, and casts doubt on his status for Sunday. Receiver Devonta Smith was also absent on Wednesday due to an illness, joining rushers Jordan Howard and Boston Scott, while running back Miles Sanders saw limited action as he continues to nurse an ankle injury.

New York Jets

Rookie quarterback Zach Wilson was unhappy with his performance in his return from a knee injury that sidelined him for a month. Wilson completed just 14-of-24 pass attempts for a meagre 145 yards and no scoring tosses, but produced a four-yard TD run that proved to be the difference in last weekend’s 21-14 win over the hapless Texans. Overall, Wilson has now failed to connect on a scoring pass in each of his past three appearances, and in five of his seven starts this season. And things will get no easier this weekend against a Philly pass defence that has limited opposing pivots to 214 or fewer passing yards in three of four outings, and surrendered just one total touchdown pass in three road games during that stretch.
