Jets vs Bengals Vegas Odds, NFL Picks & NFL Predictions: The New York Jets are at home on Thursday, hosting the Cincinnati Bengals at 8:20 PM ET. Depending on the outcome of the New England’s matchup with Detroit earlier in the day, the Jet’s will either be playing to remain tied for first in the AFC East or for sole possession of the top spot in their division as well as the best record in the AFC.
The Jets are 8-2 and have won their past three NFL Predictions matchups. In all three games the Jet’s had to overcome fourth quarter deficits to win by close margins. The combination of QB Mark Sanchez and WR Santonio Holmes has been lethal to the Jet’s opponents.
The Cincinnati Bengal’s are 2-8 and have lost their last seven straight NFL Predictions matchups. They were expected at the beginning of the 2010 season to contend for the AFC North crown which they won in 2009. Cincinnati QB Carson Palmer threw a touchdown pass to both Chad Ochocinco and Terrell Owens and RB Cedric Benson ran for 124 yards and a TD of his own in the Bengal’s latest loss 49-31 to the Buffalo Bills.
Las Vegas odds makers have the Jets as 9 point favorites. If Sanchez has to wait until the fourth quarter or overtime again to pull another rabbit out of his hat, the Jets won’t win by 9. Cincinnati’s offense seems to be coming together and they don’t want to lose this NFL Predictions matchup on national television on Thanksgiving Day. The over/under for this game is set at 43 ½ points. I’m thinking overIf you’re looking for an upset, this might be matchup you’re looking for in this topsy-turvy, unpredictable NFL season. The Bengal’s are +300 if you prefer to take them straight up, the highest payoff of any of the three underdogs in Thursday’s games.
