Jets vs. Seahawks Betting Insights

Reasons The Jets Can Cover The Spread

The Jets still have a top 10 defense by both DVOA and PFF grades, and they did hold a Lions team that has been otherwise strong offensively to 13 offensive points two weeks ago. In Mike White’s two games before he got hurt in the Bills game, the Jets handily beat the Bears and moved the ball extremely well against the Vikings, before losing because they went 1/6 on converting Red Zone trips to Touchdowns.

If the Jets don’t run remarkably cold in the red zone against the Vikings, they’d be 3-0 ATS with Mike White and they’re playing a Seattle team that has lost 5 of 6 and looks lost.

Reasons The Seahawks Can Cover The Spread

Mike White is coming off of injury, which could lead to him being rusty and potentially making mistakes. The Seahawks do have one of the best Red Zone defenses at home, only conceding TDs 43.5% of the time, which could matter if the Jets struggle to score like they did against the Vikings.

The Jets offensive line is bottom half of the league in Pressure Allowed, which could create an opening for the Seahawks to get Mike White off his spot and into either sacks or mistakes.

Reasons to bet the over

The Seahawks defense hasn’t been particularly good in recent weeks, conceding 40 to the Raiders, 23 to the Rams with John Wofford, and 30 to the Panthers. If White is able to find his form, they could dice apart the raw secondary, which is talented but prone to mistakes.

On the other side, the Seahawks do still have a couple of big play receivers, and if Geno connects on a big shot, that will help speed the game up.

Reasons to bet the under

The Jets should be able to run all over the Seahawks – they’ve given up over 100 yards to running backs in 5 of the last six, and they’ve been vulnerable to long runs. If the Jets can get a rushing game going efficiently, they could score, but do so at a slower pace, hurting the total.

Jets vs. Seahawks Props: Matchups To Watch For

Tyler Lockett Receiving Yards – Given Sauce Gardner doesn’t love to travel inside, it seems likely the Seahawks are going to try and use Lockett the way they used to years ago, with a lower ADoT route tree and a large volume of receptions. If they can get him in open space by doing that, he should be a valuable part of the passing game.

Final Thoughts

The Jets are a fundamentally different team without Zach Wilson, and the Seahawks are a fundamentally different team now than they were early in the season.

For whatever reason – Geno being “figured out” or rookies hitting up against their conditioning limits as they adjust to 17 games as opposed to college’s 12 or 13 or whatever else – the Seahawks just haven’t been the same team since they departed for Germany. Since then, their offense has sputtered and their defense has been exposed.

On the other side, the Jets are a bit of a Jekyll and Hyde team too, but we know what causes the differences. When they get even remotely competent quarterback play, they can win – as the couple of not terrible Zach Wilson games and the Mike White games show. The problem is, the last two weeks, they’ve had sub-replacement level play, and last week they decided a former spot player in the CFL was a better answer than their recent #2 overall pick.

If Mike White gives the Jets anything this week, they should win. The Seahawks just aren’t the same offense they were early in the season, and with Seattle not likely to score much against an elite defense, the Jets don’t need good quarterbacking, they just need better than Zach Wilson.

Mike White is that. Good luck betting Jets vs. Seahawks odds.
