Jets at Broncos odds, lines, predictions and picks
Broncos 23, Jets 10
PASS on the money line. The Broncos have a top-five defense and are going up against the second-worst scoring offense through two games.
Wilson will struggle. The Jets are 1-8 in their last nine road games.
Any team can win on any given Sunday, but betting the Jets to win outright would just be a shot in the dark.
This is where it gets interesting because of the 10.5-point spread. However, the Jets offense hasn't proven it can do anything against quality defenses, as they will face a very good defense for the third game in a row to start the season.
Denver is 2-0 ATS so far this season. They aren't turning the ball over, so they aren't giving opponents easy scoring opportunities. The Jets are turning it over.
Take the BRONCOS -10.5 (-107).
The Jets have not allowed more than 25 points so far this season. They are averaging 10 points per game.
The Broncos won't likely get into the 30s and the Jets won't be able to do much offensively against that Denver defense.
Take UNDER 41.5 (-110).
