Las Vegas Raiders vs. New York Jets NFL Week 13 betting odds and picks

At the onset of the season, not much was expected from the Jets.  New York has exceeded NFL betting expectations.  They are worse than even the biggest pessimists foresaw.  As a result, the Jets are looking ahead to the 2021 NFL Draft.  Trevor Lawrence is their target.  Clemson’s quarterback is seen as the potential savior of this moribund franchise.  Last Sunday the improving Raiders were shellacked at Atlanta.  It was a reminder to Jon Gruden that the rebuild has miles to go.  Las Vegas was not focused and sloppy.  Despite the loss, the Raiders are still in playoff contention.

Las Vegas Raiders at New York Jets CashBet Wagering Analysis

To be exact the Raiders have far more to play for than the Jets.  New York may even be accused of tanking.  After all Jacksonville is just one game separated from the Jets.  First pick in the 2021 NFL Draft is of paramount importance.  New York is still getting plenty of top online sportsbook points at home.  In like manner, the Raiders defense is not certain for locking the back door.  All of which means a Las Vegas win doesn’t ensure a payout.  New York will be getting extra sugar from oddsmakers.  Cause by the masses avoiding the Jets.

Raiders Stunned in Atlanta Setback  

Las Vegas discovered Sunday that they aren’t good enough to overlook anyone.  Especially after their 43-6 loss at the Falcons as 3.5-point road chalks.  Under the total of 53 came through as well.  Las Vegas committed five turnovers and suffered five sacks.  They converted only 3-12 on third downs.  Additionally, Vegas committed 11 penalties for 141 yards.  It was an unmitigated Betting on NFL disaster.

Now the Raiders fell to 6-5 straight up, 7-4 against the spread, and 7-3 over the total.  Las Vegas ranks 17th in the NFL for total offense and 14th for scoring.  Defensively Las Vegas is 22nd in the NFL and 28th for points allowed.

Jets Crash Again

Last week it was more of the same for the Jets.  New York lost to Miami 20-3 as 7.5-point pro football betting home dogs.  Under the total of 46.5 was a winner too.  In sum, the Jets are 0-11 straight up, 3-8 against the spread, and 5-6 under the total.  The unfortunate Sam Darnold returned as quarterback.  It was not a good day as he threw two interceptions.  And was sacked three times.  Overall New York ranks 32nd in the NFL for both total offense and scoring.  Defensively New York is 28th overall and 29th for points allowed.
