Of all of the games on the Monday 12/17 Week 15 NFL betting schedule, one of my favorite is the clash between the New York Jets and the Tennessee Titans. Join me for my tips for this 8:30 p.m. ET kickoff that can be seen on ESPN.
New York Jets (6-7, 7-6 ATS) +2
Tennessee Titans (4-9, 4-9 ATS) -2
The Titans are really starting to air it out over the course of the last few weeks, and they are hitting a few of those deep shots that really could make a game get to the ‘total’ relatively quickly. Don’t mistake this for a good offensive team, as it isn’t quite yet, but there are some dynamic players on this club that can really get the job done when push comes to shove.
I just love the fact that the public is destroying the ‘under’ in this very public game. The Jets are looked at as a team that just won’t score any points whatsoever, but we have to remember that Tennessee allowed 24 points or more in three straight losses. Odds have it, New York is going to get at least somewhere near that number when push comes to shove. We also have to remember that the Jets have played against some relatively good defensive teams over the course of the last few weeks, and against those teams that aren’t that great defensively (I’m looking at you Houston, Indy, New England, and St. Louis), the club has averaged 24.8 points per game.
This isn’t going to be the prettiest game in the world, and it isn’t going to be a dead nuts ‘over’ from the get go, but when push comes to shove, you might be ultimately surprised when you see right around 45 points on the board when this one is said and done with. Remember that two straight and three out of four in this series have all gone past the number, and the Jets have scored at least 23 points in five of the last six against Tennessee.
