The New York Jets are having a miserable season and they are coming off of another bad loss blowing a 4th quarter lead against the Dolphins on Monday Night. The Jets offense has been pathetic averaging just 15.8 points and 311.5 yards per game and led by QB Geno Smith who has completed 57.4 percent of his passes with seven touchdowns and 11 interceptions. Chris Ivory as rushed for 641 yards and five touchdowns and Eric Decker has 49 catches. The Jets defense is allowing 26.6 points and 322 yards per game and they are minus 12 in turnover ratio. Demario Davis has 91 tackles, Davis Harris has 90 tackles, and Dawan Landry has 83 tackles. The Jets are in the market for a new Head Coach more than likely.
Minnesota is 4-0 against the spread at home against a team with a losing road record, 5-1 against the spread in heir last six games, and 3-8 against the spread following a win. New York is 3-7 against the spread following a loss, 3-8-1 against the spread in their last 12 games, and 0-4 against the spread in their last four road games against a team with a losing home record. New York has covered the point spread in their last four games against Minnesota.
This seems like a big number but the Jets are that bad so I am with the public here fading the Jets.
