Winless Broncos Still Betting Favorites over Jets in NFL Week 4

Denver Broncos vs. New York Jets NFL Betting, picks and lines

Last season Denver flopped out of the gate first-year coach Vic Fangio.  And then the Broncos put together a strong finish. Which triggered false hopes that they were ready to become a serious playoff contender.  That NFL betting pattern has begun to repeat itself in 2020.  Consider that Denver has lost their first three games of the season.  Not helping the cause is a massive injury list.  Second-year quarterback Drew Lock leads the roll.  Now for Thursday Denver finds itself as a surprising favorite at the Jets.  New York’s worst team with the worst coach in football.

Denver Broncos at New York Jets CashBet Wagering Analysis

On this occasion, Denver is a rare best sportsbook online public choice.  New York has zero in the way of public support.  It is true that the Jets have a massive credibility gap.

Gamblers Busted on Broncos

Last Sunday the Broncos hosted Tom Brady and the Buccaneers.   Denver lost 28-10 as six-point home dogs with the game going under the total of 42.5.  Denver was outgained 353 to 226 in total yards with a turnover margin of -2.  Backup quarterback Jeff Driskell had a rough day.  To illustrate he was 17 of 30 for 176 yards passing with a touchdown and interception.

Now Denver has betting on NFL record of 0-3 straight up, 2-1 against the spread, and 1-2 under the total.  The Broncos offensive metrics are 29th for yardage, 30th for scoring, and 25th for turnovers.  In like manner, they’re 20th for total defense, 12th for points allowed, and 26th for takeaways.  Fangio has real mess on his hands.

Jets Crashing and Burning Bankrolls

The Jets are 0-3 straight up and against the spread.  While New York is 2-1 over the total.  They have pro football betting metrics of 32nd for total offense, and 32nd for scoring offense.  Defensively the Jets rank 17th for yardage and 27th for points allowed.

Last week the Jets were destroyed at the Indianapolis Colts 36-7 as 12.5-point road dogs. Under a total of 44 was a winner too.  The Jets were dominated and outgained 353 to 260 in total yards.   Indianapolis held a 21 to 15 first down advantage.  Further, the Jets were a miserable 3 of 12 on third-down conversions.  New York committed three turnovers.  Additionally, Indy had two pick-six interceptions by Xavier Rhodes and TJ Carrie.

It was a rough day for Jets quarterback Sam Darnold.  Owing to a 47.0 rating.  Darnold has a subpar 70.7 rating with three touchdowns and four interceptions.  He has been sacked six times.

Why Adam Gase has named Jets coach is mind-boggling.  To be exact his failure at Miami was a key tell.  Naming a worse NFL head coach would be difficult.
