Patriots vs Jets Pick, Prediction

Action Network NFL betting expert Brandon Anderson offers this prediction:

New England has won 14 in a row against the Jets since December 2015, and the last Jets victory over the Patriots in regulation came way back in the 2011 playoffs and featured Mark Sanchez. Woof.

The Patriots rank as the unluckiest team in the NFL this season, per our Luck Rankings. The Jets rank seventh luckiest despite the Aaron Rodgers injury, so that could be advantage: New England.

This is another of those games that could be impacted by the East Coast tropical storm. No offense but… no seriously, don't expect to see much offense in this one. Defenses reign.

Come on, it's not like Zach Wilson is suddenly going to go win this on his own.

A bet on the Jets is a bet on the defense. We know where our bread is buttered. Mac Jones road unders are 9-6 (60%), and Zach Wilson unders at 40 and below are 4-1, going under by over 10 PPG, with the only miss last week because of a two-point conversion. Points will be at a premium both ways. Trust the Sauce.

Pick: Under 37 (-110)
