How NY Jets & Philadelphia Eagles Matchup.
Vegas Odds, Offshore Odds, & Odds ATS:
In-Depth Analysis of each team:
Again, both teams look to end the preseason on a high note after a rough couple games recently. The Eagles, as stated, are winless and would love to give themselves along with their fans, a bit of optimism going into the regular season while the Jets seek to atone for their loss to the Giants and end the preseason at .500. With that being said, each team will simply settle for maximum effort and intensity in this matchup that would translate into week 1 of the regular season.
Against The Spread Selection: Pick: NY Jets -2
My reason for the pick :
While Philly continues to play awful on offense, the Jets have been decent in moving the ball in the preseason. Of course, the eagles will certainly play much better on offense than in their last outing versus the Browns, I happen to feel as if they will simply look to get out of this contest healthy, for the most part. Not to say that a win would not be important, however, with key loss, particularly at the QB position, they would like to go into the regular season with the talent that they have in hopes that the kinks will be worked out soon. In all, the Jets will squeak by the home team in what should be a back and forth game on Thursday night.
Totals Selection: Pick: Under 37.5
My reason for the prediction :
I will back the under in this contest in tat the Eagles have not played well on offense at all during the preseason while their dense, aside from the New England game, has been solid. The Jets, on the other hand, would be able to move the ball effectively during the regular season, however, their defense has struggled in their last 3 games. With that being said, expect the under to be the result of this matchup as it will fall just below the total of 37.5.
