NFL Betting: New York Jets vs. San Diego Chargers

After losing back-to-back heartbreaking NFL betting games, the Chargers will look to avoid a disastrous 0-3 start when the Jets pay a visit to Qualcomm Stadium on Monday.

Football bettors can catch all of the great professional football wagering options at until the opening kickoff, which is set for 8:30 ET. Though San Diego won their last meeting 31-26 in 2005, the Jets have claimed the ATS victory for their NFL bettors in each of the teams L/4 meetings.

The names on the jerseys of the quarterbacks seem to be irrelevant when the Jets and Pats hook up nowadays. Whether it was Tom Brady or Matt Cassel for New England, both have been doing enough to keep the Patriots offense in gear.

The opposite can be said for Brett Favre, Kellen Clemens, and Chad Pennington, all of which have struggled for the green and white against their divisional rivals in recent years. The football betting odds suggested that this was New York’s best chance at knocking off the Pats in a couple years, as they were only 1-point underdogs and spent a part of the week favored.

It wasn’t meant to be though, as a solid New England defense held the Jets to just one offensive touchdown, leaving NFL betting fans that backed the Jets to cry in their beer after the 19-10 defeat.

San Diego might have the second best offense in the AFC at 31.0 PPG and might only be -3 in total points on the year, but the Chargers once again came up narrowly short of a victory for the second straight week at Denver. With the score 38-31, QB Jay Cutler found former Virginia Tech WR Eddie Royal for what appeared to be the score that would send the game to overtime.

HC Mike Shanahan made the gutsy call of going for the two-point conversion and the win, a risk that was rewarded. The 39-38 final score produced a push on the NFL betting line for all football betting followers in the contest. Sportsbook has the Chargers (–9) with a ‘total’ of 44.
