Monday Night Football – Texans vs Jets Betting

The Houston Texans will look to remain perfect on the season when they travel to New York to take on the completely dysfunctional Jets. It is a tale of two franchises – one going in completely the right direction and the other sliding down that slippery slope in the wrong direction – I will let you decide which franchise is going in which direction!

Who needs this game more? New York. Which team is likely to lay the smack down? That answer is easy!

The Houston Texans are likely the most complete team in the NFL at present – the defense has been off the charts and the offense have been very good as well. Currently they own the 21st ranked passing offense and the 9th best running game – more than adequate when you possess the defense that the Texans do. Matt Schaub, Andre Johnson, Arian Foster and even Ben Tate strike fear into opposing defenses and rightfully so.

They are a handful as demonstrated by their 31.50 points per game – good for 2nd in the league.

There was some fear in Houston that the loss of Mario Williams would be too much for the defense to overcome. No problem – JJ Watt has stepped up and become the early candidate for Defensive Player of the Year with 7.5 sacks already. The passing D is ranked 2nd in the NFL and the run D is 11th after Chris Johnson went off last week to the tune of 141 yards. Still, this unit is absolutely top notch – they certainly have the edge over the Jets offense.

Is it me or is it boring when Rex Ryan isn’t making bold, stupid predictions. He has appeared humble, quiet and seemingly scared in recent press conferences. I guess so – the team is playing terribly and now must deal with injuries to their best defensive player and one of their only offensive threats.

The Jets offense has been terrible – just 145 total yards last week in a 34-0 home loss to the 49ers. They are the 27th ranked pass offense and they own the 24th ranked running game – not good enough for this team to contend. There is no shortage of excuses – the run game isn’t doing their jobs, the O-line has been bad, there aren’t enough weapons for Mark Sanchez and on, and on and on. But the fact remains that this team is out of sync on offense – totally dysfunctional and void of any sort of playmaking ability – UNGOOD! [soliloquy id=”82219″]

The Jets defense has been nothing to write home about either this season. They are an OK 4th against the pass (without Darrelle Revis this number should freefall) and they are a miserable 31st against the run allowing 172.75 yards per game – are you listening Arian Foster?

Betting Prediction

  •  Houston is 5-1 SU in its last 6 games
  •  The total has gone UNDER in 4 of Houston’s last 5 games when playing NY Jets
  •  Houston is 6-2 SU in its last 8 games on the road
  •  The total has gone UNDER in 4 of Houston’s last 6 games on the road
  •  NY Jets are 5-0 SU in their last 5 games when playing Houston
  •  The total has gone UNDER in 4 of the NY Jets last 5 games when playing Houston
  •  NY Jets are 8-3 SU in their last 11 games at home
  •  The total has gone OVER in 5 of the NY Jets last 7 games at home

This game has blowout written all over it! There is a good chance that we see Tim Tebow in this game a whole lot more that Rex Ryan would have liked. Tim Tebow is awful! Most of the headlines coming out of New York are about the dysfunction on this team not the optimism felt by fans, players and coaches alike. T

hey are bad right now and against one of the NFL elite teams New York`s misery will be compounded.

Rex Ryan may cry on National TV!

Pick: Houston Texans -9
