Money nearly 9/1 on the Patriots over the Jets

The New York Jets are not getting much betting support in their chances to cover their Week 2 spread at home against the New England Patriots, based on DraftKings' early splits.

Betting Impact:

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.
