2005 New York Jets NFL Handicapping Review Part 1
By Tom Wilkinson
The New York Jets entered the 2004 season with a lot of
doubts both within the team and within the sports betting
community. New York was coming off a 6-10 straight up mark
in 2003, which followed a 9-7 playoff season in 2002. Online
sports betting blogs were mixed with a wide variety of
opinion/posts on the prospects of the Jets.
New York got off to an assertive start with a 31-24 home win
against an improving Cincinnati team, beating the sports
betting odds in the process. The Jets next had a tricky road
game at San Diego and there were a variety of opinions on
potential football picks by sports betting players for this
game, which the Jets took 34-28 as 3-point road chalks.
After a bye and another win and cover against Miami, the
undefeated Jets hosted winless Buffalo and this is when the
online sports betting blogs began having a lot of trash talk
posts on how the Jets would bomb out the lowly Bills. This
is a great example of how so many sports betting players
allow themselves to be blindsided. The 6.5-point spread
looked like a gift to many online sports betting players who
unloaded on New York, who beat the Bills 16-14 while failing
to beat the online sports betting board and casino
After a win against lowly San Francisco, (and another
failure against the sports betting odds), New York traveled
to New England for a “prove it” game against the Patriots.
There was considerable debate at online sports betting blogs
about this game, which New England won 7-13, failing to
cover the 6.5-point sports betting line.
The Jets bounced back nicely with a win and cover at home
against Miami (41-14) in a game that many sports betting
players figured they would not be up for after their high
profile loss at New England. This is an excellent lesson for
sports handicapping football picks. Online sports betting
blogs were cool on the Jets after the New England loss,
which is always a good time for the independent minded
sports betting player to jump on a team against the online
sports betting boards.
New York was 6-1 straight up and 5-2 against the sports
betting odds at this point, and would confuse a lot of
sports betting players the rest of the way in 2004.
