New York Jets (+3)
Houston Texans (-3)
Two seasons ago when Rex Ryan took over the Jets, the hope was that he was going to be able to change around this normally suspect defense to get them to the playoffs. He’s done just that in back to back seasons. Now, with the 3-4 in place in Houston and new Defensive Coordinator Wade Phillips calling the shots on this side of the ball, the hope is that the Texans can finally get over the hump.
Houston is only a modest underdog this year on the NFL futures odds to the Indianapolis Colts in the AFC South, and depending on how this preseason goes, things could change dramatically. Though we aren’t so sure just how much we’re going to see the starters on offense, the defense is probably going to spend some extra time out there on the field in the first half as the team tries to get used to that switch to the 3-4.
Offensively, we know that QB Matt Schaub is one of the best in the biz. We also have confidence in newly resigned backup QB Matt Leinart to get the job done as well. However, once Head Coach Gary Kubiak hands the ball off to often inconsistent TJ Yates, it’s anyone’s guess what is going to happen. Of course, the Jets can say the same thing about QB Greg McElroy and QB Drew Willy once both QBs Mark Sanchez and Mark Brunell are done in this one.
New York has a history of not really showing a whole heck of a lot on defense in the preseason. The unit has always been good, but there shouldn’t be a crazy amount of pressure on Schaub and the Houston quarterbacks, which definitely plays into the Texans’ hands on the NFL betting odds.
There are some injury questions for Houston, as WR Andre Johnson, RB Arian Foster, and LB Brian Cushing have all missed some time.
These two don’t typically meet each other in the preseason, knowing that they play each other quite a bit in the regular season. The Jets have never lost to Houston, going 5-0 SU and 4-1 ATS in the five meetings of these rivals.
NFL Odds Picks – Still, Houston is going to want to get this massive season off on the right foot, and we just don’t see how it is going to do anything but win this one by less than a TD.
