Why Bet On The New England Patriots?

Why should you bet on New England in this contest? Well, there are a multitude of great reasons. First the Patriots have a ton of motivation to bounce back from their stunning 34-10 smackdown loss at Tennessee in Week 10. Tom Brady passed for 254 yards with no touchdowns or interceptions against the Titans and New England’s defense gave up two TD passes to Marcus Mariota and a pair of TD runs to running back Derrick Henry.

Another great reason to back New England is that they have the far superior offense in this pairing as they average almost eight points per game more than New York. Another good reasons to back the Pats is that that have the slightly better defense in giving up almost two fewer points per game defensively than the Jets.

Last but not least, New England is well-rested – and Bill Belichick is more prepared – after getting a bye last week.

Why Bet On The New York Jets?

Are the Jets a safe bet for NFL Week 12?

Why should you bet on the Jets in Week 12? Well, to be honest about it, there are a couple of good reasons. First, New York is playing at home and home teams win far more often than not in the NFL. An even better reason is that the Jets have made a habit out of covering the spread against the Patriots, having gone 5-0 ATS in their last five home dates against the Patriots.

The Jets will also have plenty of motivation, seeing as how they’ve dropped four straight games including their humbling 41-10 blowout loss against the mostly pitiful Buffalo Bills. Veteran quarterback Josh McCown had a poor performance in passing for just 134 yards with two interceptions and no touchdowns while New York’s defense allowed Buffalo’s Matt Barkley to pass for 232 yards with two touchdowns and no picks in his first start of the season.

Expert Analysis and Prediction for Patriots vs Jets

I don’t see any sense in beating around the bush with my pick on this Week 12 matchup since New England is a virtual lock in my opinion – and apparently 74 percent of public bettors agree!

The Patriots have won four straight and eight of the last 10 meetings against the Jets. More importantly however is the fact that New England is going to be fully focused on getting back on track and picking up some momentum prior to the playoffs.

New England has gone an unblemished 4-0 ATS in their last four games against their AFC East counterparts, 5-1 ATS in their last half-dozen games following a bye week and 16-5 ATS in their last 21 games against a team with a losing record.

Conversely, New York is just 7-19 ATS in their last 26 games in the month of November, 2-6 ATS in their last 8 games against their AFC counterparts and 1-5 SU and ATS in their last 6 games following a straight up loss. There is absolutely no way that Tom Brady and the New England Patriots fail to win this game and cover the chalk MYBookie NFL betting faithful
