Tennessee Titans vs. New York Jets Odds

The Tennessee Titans vs. New York Jets odds were all over the place as of Friday afternoon.  In fact, this was one of the most unstable lines out there.  The majority of the online sportsbooks had the odds at either Jets -2 ½ or -3.  Titans fans would want that +3 (found at Sports Interaction).  Jets backers would want the -2 ½ line or something smaller that was available at Sportsbetting.com.    What we are finding is that the action on this game is relatively even though the +130 money line was getting around 80 percent of the action for Tennessee to win outright. 

With the Jets, look no further than the defense. They have the stingiest defense in the league, allowing 482 yards while not giving up a touchdown from scrimmage in back-to-back games for the first time since doing it in three straight in 1993. The only TD New York has given up came on a fumble return in a 24-7 season-opening win at Houston.

Last season, the defense ranked 28th against the pass and gave up an average of 329.4 total yards to rank 16th overall.

This is a team that upset Houston on the road and the NFL darlings Patriots at home last week. 

"This is one of the more talented defenses I've played on, just across the board," said cornerback Lito Sheppard, who joined the Jets after seven seasons with Philadelphia. "It seems that everybody's doing their job and doing it well. When plays are presented for guys to make, we've been making them right now. I think that's the biggest change for me from any defense I've been on."

Sanchez, the fifth overall selection in April's draft, has completed 60.4 percent of his passes for 435 yards with two touchdowns and one interception.

He's been sacked just twice and now faces a Titans defense which had no sacks last week and is ranked last in the NFL against the pass, giving up 678 of the team's 777 yards allowed.

The Titans also are off to a surprising start, losing their first two games by three-point margins. They haven't opened 0-3 since losing their first five of 2006.

Tennessee opened with an overtime loss at Pittsburgh before blowing a 14-point lead last Sunday and falling 34-31 to Houston on a field goal with 2:55 to play.

"I don't think anybody expected us to be 0-2," defensive end Kyle Vanden Bosch said. "The perception was we were a good team, a veteran team, and we felt good about where we were at. But the reality is we are 0-2, and we've got to fight our way out of this thing."

The Titans offense has generated 786 yards through two games with second-year running back Chris Johnson accounting for 352.

All three of his touchdowns last week - two rushing - went for more than 50 yards. He ran for a career-high 197 yards on 16 carries and caught nine passes for 87.

Quarterback Kerry Collins has completed 63.2 percent of his passes for 460 yards with three touchdowns, but he also has three turnovers after committing just eight all of last season.

The Titans pass defense has been horrible this season. The team averaged nearly 4 sacks per game in 2008 but they only have 4 this season playing without Albert Haynesworth. Sanchez has not been pressured much this season. Tennessee has to force his hand and make him get the ball out more quickly than he would like. Also, varying its pass-rush patterns and blitz calls may force Sanchez to take punishment. This will be a test for the young quarterback.

The Jets have owned this series dating back to 1998, going 4-1 during that time.  They provided the Titans with one of their rare losses last season in Tennessee, beating them by a score of 34-13.  The Jets certainly have Tennessee's number.

The Titans are 7-1 ATS in their last 8 games following a ATS loss.

The Titans are 7-2 ATS in their last 9 road games.

The Titans are 17-5 ATS in their last 22 games as an underdog.

Tennessee is 10-4 ATS in their last 14 games following a S.U. loss.

The Jets are 0-5 ATS in their last 5 games as a favorite.

The Jets are 6-2 ATS in their last 8 games following a S.U. win.

So if you like the Jets, Sportsbetting.com has them at the -2 ½ line.  Titans fans will find some insurance with Sports Interaction and the +3.
