Trevor Siemian QB vs. Mac Jones QB

Trevor Siemian has struggled mightily since taking over as the Jets’ starting quarterback. In four games, he has completed just 58.6% of his passes while throwing four interceptions and no touchdowns. Siemian is averaging a paltry 4.9 yards per attempt with a 63.9 passer rating that ranks last among qualifiers. While he has the arm strength to challenge New England’s vulnerable secondary, Siemian’s decision-making and accuracy have been extremely poor. Through 12 quarters as the starter, Siemian has led the Jets to just four offensive touchdowns. 

Meanwhile, Mac Jones has failed to progress in his second NFL season. After showing promise as a rookie, he has taken a step back across the board. Jones’ completion percentage, yards per attempt, touchdown rate and passer rating have all declined in 2023. With 12 interceptions compared to 10 touchdowns, he has struggled with turnovers and consistency all year long. Jones seems to have lost confidence in the pocket, often rushing throws under pressure. For the Patriots offense to function properly, he must regain his rookie year composure.

Jets’ Offensive Dynamics: Ground and Air Coordination

The Jets’ strength lies in their ground game, led by Breece Hall. Hall accumulated 816 rushing yards over 16 games with four touchdowns for an effective foundation of their offense. Garrett Wilson excels as a key receiver with 1008 receiving yards and three touchdowns across 16 contests – adding much-needed excitement to their aerial assault.

Patriots’ Offensive Struggle: Searching for Consistency

The Patriots’ offense has been less explosive. Ezekiel Elliott’s contributions in rushing (588 yards and three touchdowns over 16 games) are notable but not spectacular, while DeMario Douglas (with 548 yards in 13 games) does not create enough of an impact to consistently challenge defenses.

NFL Betting Odds: New England Patriots -128, Over/Under: 30.5

The Patriots are slight favorites with a -1.5 spread and a moneyline of -128, a reflection of their historical dominance over the Jets, despite their current season’s struggles. The low over/under at 30.5 points to expectations of a defensively oriented game.

New York Jets vs. New England Patriots Betting Picks

Considering the teams’ performances and betting trends, this game presents a complex scenario for bettors. The Patriots, despite a poor season, have a historical edge over the Jets, especially at home. The Jets, on the other hand, have potential in their offense but lack consistency.

For those invested in NFL Week 18 betting predictions, the Patriots might be the safer bet, especially with the game being played at Gillette Stadium. The over/under bet seems inclined towards the UNDER, given both teams’ offensive struggles this season.

Score Prediction: Patriots 17, Jets 13
