Get ready for this exciting NFL Week 7 AFC cross-divisional showdown between the 4-2 New York ‘Baby’ Jets on a three-game winning streak and Russell Wilson’s 2-4 Denver Broncos who are underperforming, especially given the addition of arguably one of the most talented NFL QBs under center nowadays.
Here is an important factoid to consider for this bet – Denver has covered the spread in five of their last six matchups against the New York Jets – a trend that may (or may not!) continue in Week 7 but only if Wilson can properly adjust to HC Nathaniel Hackett’s and OC Justin Outten’s offensive game plan, a challenge so far that has made the veteran look incompetent at times.
The Jets are on a tear and will be tough to beat, their secondary is strong right now with CBs D.J. Reed and rookie Sauce Gardner both part of a ninth-ranked New York pass defense that kept Aaron Rodgers’ Green Bay Packers off the scoreboard in the first and fourth quarters during last week’s underdog victory, these young Jets led by defensive and fiery 2nd year HC Robert Saleh.
The oddsmakers are looking at this AFC matchup as a potentially close battle that will be a low-scoring affair, expecting these two teams to score a total of 38.5 points on Sunday, with the Jets typically posting 23.8 points per game and the Broncos only putting up 15.2 points per game, that 39 point total just over what is listed.
Also be sure to take a look at what each of these defenses are allowing every game with New York’s group allowing opponents to score 21.3 points per game and Denver’s D allowing the teams they play to post just 16.5 points per game, a total of 37.8 that is almost a point below what the gambling insiders are predicting, a close decision, either way, you decide to make it.
It’s interesting to note that five of the Broncos' last six games have gone UNDER the total points line and since the Denver offense led by a struggling Wilson seems to be in stall mode we think the under is a good bet here, but an argument can be made for the over when you account for a possible Broncos resurgence plus the number of injuries to both defenses as listed below.
Here is a chance for bettors to follow that gut instinct as to which one of these teams will win outright on Sunday with no points given or taken away, and since the Denver Broncos have won seven of their last eight games after coming off overtime the way they did last MNF in their loss to the LA Chargers, take them here and hope that whatever has been ailing them gets fixed.
The Denver Broncos' defense is ranked third in the NFL after allowing opponents to gain just 290 total yards per game, so they are only waiting for the offense to catch up with them, however, the bad news is that they are better against the pass (ranked 5th) than the run (ranked 13th) and they are facing the Jets rookie RB Breece Hall who is averaging 5.1 yards per carry.
One last consideration here is regarding injuries to these two teams, with Denver looking more banged up having ten players listed as questionable to play including QB Wilson and DE Dre’Mont Jones (neck), while New York is dealing with five game time verdicts including with defense LB Quincy Williams (ankle) and S Ashtyn Davis (hamstring), both coaches’ decisions.
