Football betting handicappers have used the New York Jets and New Orleans Saints as virtual football gambling ATM machines to start the 2009 season. Head coach Rex Ryan has given the New York Jets a brand new football betting attitude and mentality that has catapulted them to a 3-0 start with 2 out of those 3 games having gone under the total.
The Jets resurgence has been based on a sound football gambling ground attack and suffocating defense that ranks 2nd in football betting for points allowed. Last week the Jets scored an impressive 24-17 football betting win and cover over the Tennessee Titans as 1-point home chalks.
Rookie quarterback Mark Sanchez threw for 171 yards and 2 touchdowns in the win and the Jets defense held Titan quarterback Kerry Collins to 15-37 for 170 yards with 1 TD and 2 interceptions.
Sanchez has a respectable quarterback rating of 87.7 with 4 touchdowns and 2 interceptions while running backs Thomas Jones and Leon Washington both have over 160 yards rushing.
The New Orleans Saints are off to the best football betting start in their history as they are also 3-0 both straight up and against the spread with 2 out of those 3 games having gone over the total. The Saints scored a 27-7 football betting win at hostile Buffalo last week as 5.5-point favorites.
Running back Pierre Thomas rushed for 126 yards and 2 TD’s to lead the Saints in their football betting payoff against the Bills. Just as important, the improved Saints defense held Buffalo to 89 yards rushing and 154 yards in the air. New Orleans ranks #1 in all of football betting for points scored and is a respectable 14th in points allowed.
The Saints have gotten the cash in 5 out of their last 6 meetings with the Jets and have covered the spread in 5 out of their last 6 games at home. This game will be a supreme test for the Jets and their defense against the top offensive team in the league at a frenzied Superdome.
