NFL Betting Lines Analysis
The Week 10 NFL betting market opened with the New York Jets as a one-point road favorite for Sunday night, alongside an over/under of approximately 36. Early betting has maintained these figures without much fluctuation.
Jets-Raiders Betting Preview
The Jets' recent three-game winning streak was halted by a 27-6 loss at home to the Chargers last Monday. Despite out-gaining the Chargers, the Jets struggled with third-down conversions, succumbed to eight sacks, and lost the ball three times due to fumbles. Their offense has produced just three touchdowns over the last four games.
Currently 4-4, the Jets are just behind in the race for the AFC playoff spots.
On the other side, the Las Vegas Raiders are experiencing a renewed sense of hope at 1-0 under their new head coach and starting quarterback, following a decisive 30-6 victory over the Giants. They showcased a balanced offensive attack and a secure handling of the ball.
The Raiders' performance has been unpredictable lately, with significant wins followed by disappointing losses, leading to a coaching change and a quarterback switch.
Both teams have faced five common opponents this season: the Bills, Patriots, Broncos, Giants, and Chargers. The Jets went 3-2 SU, 2-2-1 ATS, with a +7 YPG, while the Raiders matched the 3-2 SU and ATS but with a -21 YPG.
The last time these AFL rivals met was three seasons ago, with the Raiders securing a 31-28 victory in East Rutherford, with Derek Carr and Sam Darnold as the starting quarterbacks for their respective teams.
