Public Pushes Jets-Raiders Line Down to a Pick'em

The Jets played horrible last week but there are indications they could bounce back in Vegas. 


New York opens as a -2.5 road favorite but that number has been driven down to a PICK'EM.  75% of the spread action was on the Raiders.

Zach Wilson completed 33-of-49 passes for 263 yards in the Jets’ 27-6, Week 9 loss to the Chargers, adding seven yards on two carries.

Wilson was no match for the menacing Los Angeles pass rush last week.  He might be in better shape this week as the Raiders have only 16 sacks this season, which ranks 23rd in the NFL.

 "Obviously, it's not the Greatest Show on Turf," Jets head oach Robert Saleh said following Monday's loss to the Chargers. "Obviously, (Wilson) knows that there's a lot of things that he can do better. There's a lot of things we can all do better. And yeah, he needs to get better. He knows that.

"But I know the knee-jerk reaction is to always hit the panic button. ... He's doing the best he can. But again, he still needs to get better."

Rookie QB for the Raiders Aidan O’Connell completed 16-of-25 passes for 209 yards in the Raiders’ 30-6, Week 9 win over the Giants.

The Jets -2.5 made sense as Sagarin gives us a number of 2.94.  As a PICK'EM or -1 point favorite, there is a near 3 point underlay and this is quite good for the underdog in the 3/2.5 range.
