Against one of the season’s biggest disappointments in the Broncos (2-4), the Jets have a chance – one that might increase if Denver QB Russell Wilson (shoulder, hamstring) isn’t able to play. If Wilson is out, Brett Rypien will play. His one start was a win against the tanking 2020 Jets.

Reasons The Jets Can Cover The Spread

The Jets offense still doesn’t look great by the advanced metrics, but they have been better in the Zach Wilson era. Their biggest advantage, however, is on the defensive side of the ball, where they were dominant last week.

6th by PFF’s grading, the Jets have a great setup for success – the 4th highest Pressure Rate while blitzing 2nd least in the league. They get to the QB without sending extra men, which means they should be able to tee off on either Rypien or an injured Russ. Even if Russ is healthy, every Seahawks fan knows that Russ takes a lot of bad sacks, which is killer against the Jets.

Why The Broncos can cover the spread

Their defense is still very good – 2nd by DVOA, 1st by PFF, the Broncos have an elite defense. If they’re going to win this game, it’s going to require a virtuoso performance from the defense, which they can deliver. They’ve held the Niners, Colts, and Chargers to under 17 points in regulation a piece 3 of the last four weeks.

The hope would be that the Broncos offense could find something – they’re 11th in yards/pass, but the problem is they’re too predictable with drives starting with two runs. If they can find any creativity, then maybe they could be more efficient.

Reasons to bet the over

The Jets have had one of the more creative offenses this season, with Breece Hall breaking off long runs and increasingly inventive uses of Braxton Berrios. If the Jets can take advantage of the one Denver defensive weakness and Hall can break a long one – or a Berrios trick play goes deep – then the game will speed up.

The other reason for optimism is turnovers. Zach Wilson has been less turnover prone this season, but the Jets QB still has 2 INTs in 3 games. If he has to drop back a lot, he might revert to old ways and throw up a meat ball that either gives Denver good field position or a defensive touchdown. If the Jets can get pressure, that’s quick drive enders and potentially a fumble on the other side, which could be key.

Reasons to bet the under

These are two bottom 10 offenses by DVOA and PFF against two top 6 PFF defenses. Nothing about Russell Wilson when healthy suggests he can put up many points, and now with either him or Rypien starting, it’s unlikely they’re going to be able to move the ball against the ferocious Jets pass rush.

On the other side, the Jets increased success offensively has come against the Dolphins, Steelers, and Packers, three bottom half of the league defenses. The Jets have been impressive offensively, but they’ve yet to be in a negative game script or against an elite defense, which could considerably change the outcomes.

Jets vs. Broncos Props: Matchups To Watch For

Jets Sacks: the Jets have one of the league’s best pass rushes against the 27th best offensive line in the league by Adj. Sack Rate. The Jets should be all over either Rypien or a hobbled Wilson, and that should lead to a lot of sacks for the Jets’ ferocious front.

Breece Hall Rushing + Receiving Yards: Hall has been a beast the last two games, garnering 318 yards from scrimmage the last two weeks. As a receiving threat from the backfield and as a rusher, Hall has been a breakout in recent weeks, and against a defense that is 1st against the pass in every metric and 16th in yards/rush, Hall will be the way the Jets move the ball if they can.

Final Thoughts

This game is about the quarterbacks, but in many ways it’s not.

Russell Wilson being in or out should be a substantial part of this, but with the version of Russ we’ve seen so far this year it doesn’t seem like it would be that big of a deal if he was out. He isn’t playing like the player he was brought in to be – 21st by EPA/play and 25th by the EPA/Completion Percent Above Expectation (CPOE composite).

The Broncos offense is predictable and stagnant – Twitter was able to predict their penchant for starting drives run-run-pass on Monday night, let alone the Chargers coaching staff. On the other side, the Jets don’t have the talent or names, but they’re making the most of it with a well coached offensive approach.

The Jets pass rush should destroy whoever ends up behind center for the Broncos, and that’s where my mind keeps going back to. The Broncos have a bottom 10 offensive line against a top 5 pass rush – and a pass rush that continuously gets home without needing to blitz. If Russ is back there with a poor hamstring, he’ll be a sitting duck.

Best of luck wagering on Jets Broncos odds.
