NFL Betting – Lions Won’t Roll Over For Jets

Matthew Stafford is ready for the JetsNFL betting players are watching the improvement of a young Detroit team that is going to be a factor in the next couple of years, maybe not in 2010, but they could challenge for the playoffs with a few breaks. They’ll welcome the New York Jets to town on Sunday, and while they many not win, they’re going to push the AFC favorites to the limit.

Jets Lions Betting – Sunday, November 7th, 1:00 PM ET

[adinserter block=”2″]The Jets (5-2) came out of their bye week and fell flat on their faces in a 9-0 loss at home to Green Bay, and the offense was the culprit with three turnovers. Two of those came off picks by Mark Sanchez, who was 16-of-38 for 256 yards, but he was also hurt by a number of dropped passes by his receivers and the USC product needs all the help he can get. The Jets’ defense held up their end of the bargain with a stellar performance to hold the Packers down, stopping them on 12 of 14 third-down chances, but the offense couldn’t seal the deal.

The Lions (2-5) dropped 23 points in the fourth quarter of a 37-25 win over Washington, and the return of Matt Stafford was a big key. Stafford was 26-of-45 for 212 yards, a pick and four touchdowns, three of them to Calvin Johnson, who had nine catches for 101 yards. Ndamokung Suh, one of the most exciting NFL picks to come out on the defensive side of the field in a long time, had two of the Lions’ seven sacks, then recovered a fumble and took it back to the house to put the final nail in Washington’s coffin.

[adinserter block=”1″]Online football betting odds have the Jets as a 4-point favorite on the road, and this is their first trip to the Motor City since 2002. In five trips to Detroit, the Jets are 3-2 SU and 2-3 ATS, and their offense has a lot of work to do to make up for last week. Braylon Edwards has always had problems holding onto the ball, but the rest of the Jets seemed to have followed suit, and their offense isn’t good enough in the first place for that.

They could look to run the ball more with LaDainian Tomlinson and Shonn Greene, but Suh and a much-improved defensive line will make life tough. The Lions still have problems closing out games, and they won last week because of a imploding Washington team, which is why they won’t win this game. But we’re willing to bet that they’ll take the Jets to the last possession of the game.
