NFL Week 7 Betting Preview for New York Jets at Denver
Jets Look for Fourth Straight Victory
In Week seven, the New York Jets (4-2) head to Denver to battle it out with the Broncos at Empower Field in Mile High Stadium. The Jets beat the Green Bay Packers 27-10 last week, shocking them on their own turf at Lambeau Field.
The Jets had not won three games in a row since 2019, and with four victories, New York has already matched its win total from the previous year. Rookie Breece Hall continues to be a center point for this offense as he rushed for a career-high 116 yards and scored a touchdown for the third straight game.
Zach Wilson is undefeated as a starter so far in 2022 since returning from injury, and he looks to press on with the winning effort offensively.
The Jets’ defense continues to be the catalyst for this team, and they showed up to play again may Aaron Rodgers and the Packers defeating them 27-10. The defensive unit recorded four sacks, one fumble recovery, and a touchdown on a blocked punt. Overall, New York is surrendering just 313.2 yards and 21.3 points per game.
Broncos Hope to Break Three-Game Losing Streak at Home
The 2-4 Broncos were defeated by the Los Angeles Chargers 19-16 in an ugly overtime loss that saw Denver finish with just 15 yards in the second half and overtime combined. Denver’s offense remains ineffective as they rank 22nd in yards per game (329.3) and dead last in points (15.2).
Two hundred forty-five million dollar man Russell Wilson has been terrible this season. He has only thrown for more than one touchdown once in 2022 and hasn’t surpassed 280 yards since Week One.
In addition to Javonte Williams being out for the year, the rushing attack as a whole has been a disappointment. To make matters worse, they will be challenged by a Jets’ defense that has grown into one of the top defenses in the league.
On the defensive side of the ball is where the Broncos excel most. Coming into this matchup, they rank third in the NFL, surrendering just 290.3 yards per game, and they are fourth best, conceding 16.5 points. They showcased that talent against the Chargers, shutting down Justin Herbert’s passing game and holding Los Angeles to 19 points.
What are the Odds?
The Broncos are labeled as the Home Favorites, and the spread for this game is set at 1 point (-110) on MyBookie. In terms of the moneyline, the Broncos are positioned as small favorites (-20) to win, while the Jets are underdogs (+100). The Over/Under for the contest is 38.5 points.
What is the Pick?
This New York Jets team has relentlessly proved doubters wrong, and they are far and away more competitive than they have ever been. The Jets have talent on both sides of the ball, including a strong rushing attack and young stars on the defensive line and in the secondary.
Mike LaFleur has made a huge impact on the effectiveness of the offense, while Robert Saleh has created a winning culture.
Denver, on the other hand, has the talent to win the AFC West, but they continue to struggle on the offensive side of the ball. Injuries have ravaged their starting offense thus far. However, their defense has kept them in games.
Be that as it may, the Broncos are struggling big time and have dropped three straight games, while the New York Jets seem to not be able to lose right now. With four underdog wins thus far in 2022, the Jets should make it five with a road victory.
MyBookie Prediction: Jets +1 (-110)
