After years of beat downs from Tom Brady’s New England Patriots, the winless New York Jets are looking for their first win this year against a floundering Patriots team, now led by Cam Newton.

Despite it looking like the dynasty is over in New England, the 2-5 Patriots are seven-point favourites over a Jets team that is the only winless team in the NFL.  The total is 42.5.

NFL Point Spread and Betting Analysis

The Patriots shutout the Jets 33-0 in the last meeting between these teams in Week 7, last year.  New England is now 4-1 against the spread in their last five games versus the Jets, while the under is 4-0 in the Patriots’ last four Monday games.

With the absolute train wreck of a season it has been for New York, it shouldn’t be too surprising to see the under is 4-0 in the Jets last four games.  New York is also 0-5 ATS in their last five games against opponents with a losing record.

The under is 7-1 in the last eight meetings between these teams, while the favourite (which has been the Pats) is 4-1 in the last five meetings.

New England Patriots

With Tom Brady out and Cam Newton now leading the offence, this isn’t the same Patriots team of the past couple decades.  New England is coming off its fourth straight loss, 24-21 against the Bills.  Newton only managed 174 passing yards and no passing TDs, but did rush for 54 yards and a TD.  Damien Harris has proven to be the No. 1 running back on the team, rushing for 102 yards and a TD last week.  Harris now has 279 rushing yards on the season, 19 fewer than team-leader Cam Newton.

The Patriots’ defence hasn’t fared any better than the offence, this season, although J.C. Jackson picked off a Josh Allen pass last week and New England’s defence held Allen to 154 passing yards and no TDs.  It was a better defensive effort, but the Pats’ rush defence has struggled, giving up 140.4 rushing yards per game, 27th in the league.

New York Jets

The winless Jets are coming off a game in which Chiefs QB Pat Mahomes torched New York, throwing for 416 yards and five TDs.  The Jets couldn’t manage to pick up a single TD against Kansas City, settling for three field goals from Sergio Castillo.  New York QB Sam Darnold was held to 133 yards.

Darnold’s weak performance against the Chiefs personified the Jets’ season.  New York’s pass offence averages 155.9 yards per game and 5.3 yards per attempt, both dead last in the NFL.  The biggest positive for the Jets, this year, has been their rush defence, which is giving up 116.1 yards per game, 13th in the league.  If that’s the best the Jets can do, it’s going to be a long season in New York.
