LAS VEGAS – Leading up to the second week of the NFL season, odds typically open as soon as Week 1 comes to an end which allows people to get in on them as soon as possible.
However, leading up to Week 2 of the season, legal sports betting sites have seen some significant line shifts in certain games. More specifically, the New England Patriots vs. the New York Jets.
New England Patriots Vs. New York Jets
- Moneyline: Patriots (-250) vs. Jets (+210)
- Spread: Patriots -6
- Total: 43 Points
The New England Patriots NFL odds opened up the second week of the season as 3.5-point favorites against the New York Jets. While it is clear as to why the Patriots were favored in the game, 3.5 points were destined to change sooner rather than later.
Although both teams came off of a loss in Week 1, the Patriots had the more impressive outing behind a rookie quarterback in Mac Jones while the Jets did what they do best and lost their third straight season opener.
Those that got in on the line before the shift can enjoy an extra 2.5 “free points” no matter how unneeded they may appear, as the Jets failed to cover their 3.5-point dog status in Week 1.
Fast track to the closing lines, the Patriots have seen their -3.5-point spread extend to a whopping 6 points. This is a massive shift and the reasoning behind it are the injuries that Jets have been plagued with.
They took massive hits with Mekhi Becton, Lamarcus Joyner, and Blake Cashman all being places on Injury Reserved. With the Patriots beginning to find their rhythm on offense and their defense staying put as one of the best in the league, they could look to cash on their 6-point spread.
