Breaking news this week was Tim Tebow finally securing his "Tebowing" trademark, but that wont help the Jets as they face the New England Patriots in Foxboro. The AFC East is in a grid lock with all teams in the division locked at 3-3.
This week Vegas odds makers have listed a few interesting NFL betting matchups, but a key betting favorite for the AFC East will be the Jets vs Patriots week 7 NFL predictions contest. Last week the Jets dominated the Colts in a 35-9 victory, while the New England Patriots failed to close the win late in the fourth and were handed another last minute loss by the Seattle Seahawks.
Betting the Patriots this week will be a tough call since the Vegas spreads currently show the Patriots as a 11 point favorite. After last weeks loss to Seattle, it will be tough to take the spread posted at many online sportsbooks.
Heading into this week 7 NFL predictions contest, the Patriots are 3rd in the league in the air this season and fourth on the ground. This year its the Patriots ground game that has shown improvement, but their passing defense has failed them miserably as the Patriots rank 28th in the league against the pass, luckily the Jetes ranked 30th for their offensive passing game. With the Patriots improvements on the ground, they will be facing the Jets who are very capable of stopping Tom Brady's pass rush, but it could be the Pats ground and pound philosphy this year that wins the matchup for New England this time around.
The Jets weakness this year is their ability to stop their opponents ground game. The Jets rank 28th in the league in rushing defense and this will likely be a weakness Belichick exploits.
