The New York Jets are coming off a bye week and are still looking for their first win since December 29 of last year. The New York Jets have lost four straight road games.

The Los Angeles Chargers look for a feel good win to snap a three-game losing streak. The Los Angeles Chargers have lost three of their last four home games. Justin Herbert is completing 66.8 percent of his passes for 2,333 yards, 19 touchdowns and six interceptions. Herbert has two or more touchdown passes in six straight games.

The Jets are 8-20-1 ATS in their last 29 road games, 2-6 ATS in their last 8 games as an underdog and 2-7 ATS in their last 9 games overall. The Chargers are 16-34-1 ATS in their last 51 home games, 4-9-2 ATS in their last 15 vs. AFC and 3-7 ATS in their last 10 games as a favorite. The under is 4-1 in Jets last 5 games overall. The over is 6-0 in Chargers last 6 games overall. The Jets are 7-3 ATS in their last 10 meetings.
The New York Jets have had an extra week to prepare for this game, but I'm not sure it matters much. Adam Gase is the worst head coach in the history of the NFL and the Jets are in complete tank mode. We saw it against the Patriots in week 9 when the Jets did everything they could in the fourth quarter to lose a game they had complete control of. The Los Angeles Chargers can't play 60 minutes of football and find ways to collapse in the fourth quarter, but they're still one of the best offensive teams in the league and this feels like a game where they can get busy. I'm not backing the Jets until they fire Gase into the sun.
Give me the Chargers in a comfortable home victory.
