Bet Jets To Make Life Hard for Flacco

For the Jets, it starts by getting to Joe Flacco. The Browns altered their game plan by throwing the ball more and relying on his old-man strength to make big plays. This has led to three straight wins with the team scoring 30+ in two games. Flacco’s high-risk, high-reward style can lead to lofty stats across the board.

Flacco has averaged over 350 yards in his last three games. He’s tossed 2+ touchdowns in each game but has also thrown a pick in everyone. It’s kind of like Buffalo’s Josh Allen but without the rushing yards. Against the Jets, Flacco could finally struggle.

The 38-year-old is 3-1 against the Jets in his career. But he’s completed just over 51% of his passes and has tossed five interceptions against one TD. Bet online on the Jets to neutralize Flacco.

Jets Fly High Despite Low Expectations

As good as the Jets defense is, the offense will need to score points to win or cover the NFL spreads. We’re not holding our breath that Trevor Siemian can pull off what the likes of Flacco and Jake Browning have done. He should be good enough, along with the Jets’ potent running game, to help this team eclipse its unflattering totals.

The NFL lines have set low scoring standards for the Jets: just 1½ touchdowns and 13½ points. The Browns have allowed 20+ points in 10 games this season. Their defense is 30th in red zone conversion percentage (68.4%) and the team is -7 in turnover differential. The Jets can put up 14+ points and score a TD twice, at least.

Hall Carries the Jets

Breece Hall is the real deal. Even with the team’s inept offense, he’s managing to put up Pro Bowl-worthy numbers. He’s fresh off a two-touchdown performance and should keep it going with how often the team will rely on him. Thus, betting Hall to score is one of the easier NFL prop bets for Dec. 28.

The Jets are 5-1 when Hall finds the endzone this season. Whether it’s by air or by ground, he should gash the Browns’ weak red-zone defense to help the Jets pull this off.

NFL Pick: Anytime TD Scorer – Breece Hall (+179)

NFL Pick: Breece Hall to have 1+ Touchdowns and NYJ to win

Best Jets-Browns Parlay

The Jets are a brutal team to back, especially in a short turnaround against a surging Super Bowl contender. But we’re fading expectations here and siding with the Jets given the lines. Cleveland has had some letdown games this season. And given its gung-ho style on offense, the Jets are in an opportunistic spot. Bet on the Jets to give the Browns a good fight in a high-scoring game.

New York Jets +7½ & Over 35
