LINE: Seattle -14.5
ATS PICK: Seattle
– Bet on this, BetMGM latest line
Nah, don’t be fooled.
The Jets might have given the Raiders all they could handle and invented a fun and exciting way to lose, but that’s not the norm.
The close games against New England and Chargers were a bit of an aberration, too – the Patriots don’t have a passing game and Los Angeles does everything possible to give games away.
It’s really all about the takeaways here. If Seattle is on its game, it doesn’t screw up, and it wins. The Jets can force turnovers, but coming off the weird loss to the Giants with two giveaways, don’t expect the Seahawks to press.
The New York Giant D is playing well. The Jet D isn’t.
Forget the Henry Ruggs play for a moment, New York give up a whole lot of big plays on a regular basis. That might change a wee bit with a change in overall defensive philosophy, but that’s not going to matter.
Seattle is going to come out roaring – it’s not playing that poorly for a second game in a row.
Chalk it up to a short week, or give the Giants credit for a good gameplan. Whatever – the Jets will get some points against this porous Seattle D, but the Seahawks are about to explode with a 300-yard day from Russell Wilson and a massive performance by DK Metcalf.
