Money nearly 9/1 on the Patriots over the Jets
Fri, Sep 17th 5:23pm EDT
With a listed spread of -5.5 points, the favored New England Patriots have received 76% of the bets and 88% of the money to cover against the Jets, per DraftKings. Early bettors do not appear too concerned with New England's Week 1 loss, and are likely putting their money in support of Bill Belichick who has led the Patriots to covers in over 67% of their last 35 games following a loss. The Jets' injury news to left tackle Mekhi Becton in advance of this game is also likely a big reason there is not much love on the underdogs.
