Despite a promising preseason, which has seen the defense surrender just 15 points in two games and rookie QB Sam Darnold take the reins of the starting QB job, the Jets remain last in the odds to win the AFC East at +1500. It’s tough to convince bettors of much in the preseason, but a strong showing in this week’s game against the rival Giants could at least vault them ahead of Buffalo (+1400), especially if Darnold outplays Bills rookie pivot Josh Allen. Before wagering on this Friday’s fixture against the Giants these top list of sportsbooks have you covered, in terms of ratings and features such as live betting which is popular among NFL fans when the tide turns for their team.
Predictions for Jets vs. Giants tonight…
1 – Sam Darnold will start and play one series into the third quarter. Teddy Bridgewater will then play the remainder of the third quarter with the starters and finish out the fourth quarter with the backups. Josh McCown will not play for the second week in a row. The Giants will play Eli Manning into the third quarter.
2 – One of Darnold’s first three passes will be a nine route to Robby Anderson. He will finish 10/16 for 112 yards and avoid any turnovers. He will lead the Jets offense to 13 points during his time on the field, and cement his status as the team’s starting quarterback in week one. Teddy Bridgewater will have another strong performance, although not quite as productive as last week.
3 – Quincy Enunwa will play for the first time this preseason and the Jets will manufacture multiple touches for him via short passes or screens to get him comfortable with contact. Terrelle Pryor will also play for the first time this preseason. The presence of Enunwa and Pryor will have a trickle down to less playing time for Tre McBride and Charles Johnson in the first half and less playing time for ArDarius Stewart and Chad Hansen in the second half.
4 – Andre Roberts will function as the team’s primary returner in the first three quarters and ultimately firm up his hold on the job. Trenton Cannon will not get any opportunities to return punts but will see extended work on offense, particularly in the second half.
5 – Neal Sterling and Clive Walford will both catch multiple passes and remain firmly ahead of Jordan Leggett on the offensive depth chart. Eric Tomlinson will continue to function as the primary blocking tight end. Lawrence Thomas will remain the starting fullback and play the entire first half.
6 – The Jets will give Neville Hewitt a series or two with the first defense in the first half at inside linebacker. Brandon Copeland, Frankie Luvu and Dylan Donahue will all get pass rushing opportunities with the first defense in the first half.
7 – Marcus Maye will see his first action of the preseason alongside Jamal Adams at safety. Doug Middleton will play ahead of Terrence Brooks in the team’s three safety looks and remain on track to get a roster spot.
8 – The Jets defense will bounce back somewhat from their shaky first half against Washington, allowing only 7 first half points to the Giants offense. However, they will not register any sacks of Eli Manning.
9 – The Jets will record a pair of second half interceptions against Davis Webb. The Giants will force a second half turnover against Teddy Bridgewater.
10 – George Atkinson will play ahead of Thomas Rawls in the fourth quarter for the Jets offense, although neither will ultimately make the 53 man roster. It will be another quiet game for Stewart and Hansen at wide receiver, which will lead to neither being on the opening day roster.
11 – Nathan Shepherd will have another strong outing, cementing himself as the starter opposite Leonard Williams at defensive end. Parry Nickerson and Chris Herndon will remain out of the lineup against the Giants and make their debuts against the Eagles next week.
12 – The Jets will make some type of special teams gaffe. They are due for one.
