NFL Betting Tips:


The temptation following a catastrophic injury such as that suffered by Aaron Rodgers last week is to throw out all that is good about the Jets.

That’s because whatever Super Bowl hopes they may have held going into Week 1 substantially and all but fatally shrivelled with their quarterback’s Achilles tendon tear four plays into his first offensive series.

On Sunday (9.25pm Sky Sports Main Event) though, they face a daunting trip to Texas to take on a Dallas Cowboys team who put a whopping 40 unanswered points on the New York Giants last week. 

It’s a game with more storylines than a Hollywood blockbuster and we’ve put together a bet builder for you to consider backing on UK betting sites for the game. 

Rodgers Loss Means Jets Need Some Help

It’s also worth saying that Rodgers has been a player whose health or otherwise impacted the handicap line on games by as much as a touchdown or more throughout his career 

As such, it was no surprise to see the spread for this game move from three points prior to the injury to 9.5 at the time of writing.

But, while Monday night’s events will go down as another brutal entry in the tragicomic lore that is New York Jets history, their season is far from over… yet anyway. 

It’d be easy to forget that - amid the Rodgers disaster - they did still beat the Bills, a Super Bowl contender and huge AFC East rival. That was largely because their defence is among the best around. 

That unit can rally around the idea of defying fate’s determination to immiserate Gang Green - for a few weeks at least - and they should keep this game close. 

Take New York on the +9.5 points handicap on offer at 4/5 with Bet365.

Tip: Jets +9.5 points - 4/5 with Bet365

Expect Defences To Be On Top

It’s a low number of under 38.5 total points (19/20) with the best NFL betting sites, but both defences are capable of making this a slog of a game.

The Cowboys ripped the Giants apart on Sunday night with an unprecedented road performance that smashed numerous records.

It showed the Mike McCarthy’s men are one of the real contenders in a limited NFC this year, though if there’s one thing any regular Cowboys backer knows it’s that there’s potential for high variance week-to-week with this team. 

They should also look to keep the Jets D on the field for long, time-consuming drives in this game to tire out New York’s biggest asset. 

That’ll speed up the clock, limit possessions for both teams and hinder scoring.

While the Jets defence will definitely put up more resistance than their New York Giant counterparts mustered last week, we can’t expect all that much from their offence when it’s marshalled by Zach Wilson.

Zach Wilson’s Struggles Could Continue

Much has been made of third-year rookie learning Zach Wilson’s under four-time MVP Rodgers this offseason.

However, we can't expect miracles from the BYU product based purely on his holding a clipboard in the presence of a future hall of famer.

Wilson went over this number four times in nine games last season, but the gaudiest of those performances numbers-wise, a 355-yard display against New England, was in an error-strewn 22-17 loss to the mediocre Patriots.

If the Jets defence is making a game of this, their offensive scheme will be limiting Wilson's window for mistakes and that means keeping the ball out of the air. 

Under 174.5 passing yards is the play at odds of 22/25 with Unibet on offer.

Tony Pollard Can Cross The Goal Line

The Dallas running-back had 16 total touches in the blow out win over the Giants, more than any other player in the game. 

He grabbed a pair of touchdowns on those opportunities along with 82 total yards from scrimmage, a pattern that figures to be repeated throughout the season with Zeke Elliott no longer sniping goalline work.

The one potential cloud was his health entering the season as he broke his leg in January’s play-off loss to the Niners, but there was no sign of an issue in Metlife Stadium on Sunday night. 

The Jets defensive line will present a stiffer challenge, but the game script should suit him, and his scoring potential both as a rusher and receiver earns Pollard the nod over CeeDee Lamb as Dallas’ biggest TD threat at 4/6 with betting apps.

Tip: Tony Pollard Anytime Touchdown Scorer - 4/6 with Coral
