Looking at the Jets vs Eagles Betting Line

Philadelphia Eagles at New York Jets (+7)

The New York Jets host the undefeated Philadelphia Eagles this Sunday. The Eagles are the best team the Jets have faced to date. Philadelphia is solid on both sides of the ball, ranking 2nd in overall offense and 10th in defense. This game offers some good values. If you are close enough to attend the game enjoy it. For those looking for online games, check out WithCasinoBonus initial offers.

The Jets have apparently earned some respect from the bookmakers. A few weeks ago, this line would have easily been double digits. The Jets played well in defeat against the world champion Chiefs and handled the Denver Broncos on the road last week. Any respect the Jets receive from linemakers or elsewhere is largely due to the defense and the running game. The Jets defense was stout in frustrating Kansas City for much of the game and should provide significant resistance to the league’s second-best offense this week. The real question is whether the Jets can score enough to stay within a touchdown of the NFC champion Eagles.

So, where can the Jets exploit Philadelphia? There aren’t many areas as the Eagles’ record suggests. If the Eagles have an Achilles heel (sorry to mention Achilles Jet fans), it’s their defensive secondary. Although the Eagles are 10th overall in defense, they allow 247 yards per game through the air. Kirk Cousins of the Vikings amassed an impressive 346 yards against Philadelphia. The problem for Minnesota was that they gained next to nothing on the ground. The Vikings ran for just 28 yards in that game. Overall, the Eagles are holding their opponents to just 61.2 yards per game to rank 1st overall against the run. Part of the story behind those stats is that Philadelphia’s opponents typically find themselves behind and needing to throw it to have a chance to win.

The Bottom Line

This line makes sense, making this game one of the tougher calls on the board this Sunday. The problem for the Jets is that they are not built well to take advantage of the one weakness in Philly’s considerable armor. The Jets will not be able pummel Philadelphia on the ground the way they did Denver. They may have some success running the ball, but to win the Jets will need to make plays through the air, and that means relying on Zach Wilson. It’s tough to put your money on Wilson. We were successful last week, but that was mostly about the Jets ground game and the Bronco’s terrible defense.

The Eagle’s game in Los Angeles should also worry Jet fans. Philly shut down the Rams on the road. The Eagles held Los Angeles to just 195 yards passing. The Rams had a healthy Cooper Kupp on the field and Matt Stafford under center. The Eagles may have turned a corner against the pass last week, making them extremely tough to move the ball against given their stoutness against the run. We see the Eagles getting the victory in this one to stay unbeaten. Philadelphia should cover the line as they wear down an overworked Jet defensive unit that is sure to be on the field for most of the afternoon. Jump on this line before it moves over the 7. We also like the Eagles to have some trouble through the air against the solid Jet secondary. Take Jalen Hurts under 245.5 yards passing. We also like D’Andre Swift to roll past 64.5 yards rushing with the Eagles wearing down the Jets in the second half.

I like the optimism but, realistically, we're going to get our butts kicked on Sunday.

Likely true, but there are trap games, maybe the eagles look beyond us on the schedule...also, they haven't looked incredible, they've had to battle some teams.  It's a likely loss, but they haven't been running over teams like the niners have been.

To win a game like this, the Jets have to play aggressive like they did against KC while also mixing things up on defense as they did late at Denver.

We tend to only play with balls when we are behind, almost always starting in a predictable scheme oriented design that other teams not surprisingly take advantage of.  Poor strategy …

Only way to scare or beat Philly is to start fast and hit on some big plays.

Do I have confidence in the coaches to do this?  Not really ..

Do I have confidence in Zach to step up like he did against KC?  Not really ..

Eagles 42 - Jets 20

The Eagles will run the ball down our throats. We simply are not the greatest stop-running defense. Once they pound the ground, air-attack will follow, burning overrated sticky-fingers Sauce for at least one penalty (book it!). 

Zach will get sacked several times and will miss several open WRs. Frustration is going to rise once the Eagles start humiliating us. Also, penalties are going to kill us (several holding, false starts, unsportsmanlike of course),  

Think about it fellas, 5 trips to the red zone against the worst defense in the league and 0 touchdowns. C'mon! Breece can only do so much. 

I am in a good mood today.

Have a wonderful day Jets family!  

Edited: I also believe that we will score garbage points at the end of the game to make it look like a closer one.

I like the line at Eagles -6.5. Its begging you to take the Eagles which means vegas believes the jets are going to be real competitive in this one.

I think the eagles are going to come out flat, overlook us and this game will be there for the taking.

Not sure if we will take it though.

Ill go Jets 24, Eagles 21.  Zuerlin hits a walkoff fg for the win.

I think the Jets D is too good right now to get blown out as some are predicting.

I don't think they win, but I suspect it's a one score game early in the 4th.

Can they get a break and find a way to win late in the 4th? Maybe

Can Philly run away with it from there? Absolutely

Keep this thing close for as long as they can and you never know what can happen in the last 10 minutes.

This has been  the big debate in the office this week.

Will the Jets cover the spread.

I came out on the losing side.

Realize the D has done a good job but think they are far from great.

Im thinking you 24-10 is right in terms of point difference.

However, think Philly and the Jets both score more.

It will be a bad game for the Jets but a decent one for the Wilsons.

This has all the makings of a let down by Philly and a desperate performance by the Jets. I rarely feel this way, but I think Hack and Zach and Hall are getting on the same page and I think the jets win a close one. In the past I would have made plans to do chores for a game like this.

Saleh looks at tough teams and thinks, "Oh man, these guys are tough. Really good team. We need to play mistake free and keep it close.  Need to be careful and conservative".

 

Then gets down by 2-3 scores and says "**** it, throw the kitchen sink at them". 

 

He thinks backwards.

So play action and roll outs right? If that works then the pass sets up the run.  Old school.  Get it done Zach/Hack/attack.

well Phila is a great team like KC so the gameplan should be the same.

hopefully. otherwise they are gonna key on Hall and shut him down and this game gets out of reach real fast.

one year (2021) i measured all the lines, every game vs all the outcomes 

the average line was like 10+ points off from the actual outcome, maybe more

alot of these lines are off by 20 or 30 when it's all said and done (Cowboys game for example) 

 this Jets +7 business is designed to attract dumb Jets money (of which there's alot) and make us believe it's gonna be close

gambling.com had a stat Jets fans are the 30th smartest in the league based on their bets' winning percentage ATS. Giants fans were like last 

there's nothing a NY/NJ resident can do better than try to bet their team to the win 

what we should be doing is betting against the team and if that loses, we've bought the victory

The Eagles are a better team. Their O-line and D-line are better than ours and in past match-ups, their lines come out bullying and smacking ours in the face from the very first play.

I expect the same thing this game. So, we’ll have trouble running the ball and we’ll have trouble getting to Hurts before he throws the ball or even worse, runs himself.

Our defence needs to prove that they’re truly a top defence. This is a good measuring stick type game for our D.

i read somewhere that their safeties are depleted. Hack and Zach need to exploit this BUT, I ain’t holding my breath.

We’ll see

I hope that I am 100% wrong, but the Eagles are going to stump us.  A glorified, overhyped and overrated victory over the lowly and most atrocious defense in the NFL has many of you blind.  We could not even score a GOD DAMN TD on 5 occasions in the red zone! WTF.

Now from all of the sudden, we become this super team! LMAO  We are playing the cream of the crop and we will find out the true core of this team on Sunday, book it!

Bad tackling and penalties. Missed open receivers and holding to the ball. Breece stuffed in the line of scrimmage,

Eagles romp and stay undefeated 42-20.

That win is not blinding me at all.  We are not a good football team right now.

The Eagles coming out flat, over looking us and having a stinker doesnt have anything to do with how good we are.

It's so predictable:

The Jets will go 3 and out on the first possession.

The Jets will never have a lead.

Every Jets possession in the second half will result in a 3rd and long which will of course translate not into a first down but a punt, or an INT or fumble. 

Sometime late in the 4th Jets D or special teams will score a TD that makes it interesting, but the Jets final possession will end with the Jets 4 and 27, Zach will scramble for 4 or 5 seconds 15 yards behind the LOS and take a sack. 

Philly 24 Jets 17
