The New York Jets host the New England Patriots on Monday Night Football this week.
Wes Reynolds and Dave Tuley preview the game and break down their best bets.
New England Patriots (-9.5, 42.5) at New York Jets
Reynolds: The Patriots (2-5 SU; 3-4 ATS) are still trying to adjust to life after Tom Brady and are finding it to be even more of a challenge than expected. It looked as if the Patriots were going to turn their season around last week in Buffalo, but Cam Newton fumbled at the Buffalo Bills’ 5-yard line as New England was driving for the winning score.
Bill Belichick and company now find themselves in a position to which they are not accustomed – 3.5 games out of first place in the AFC East standings. Plus, they are amid a four-game losing streak. What is the best way to end that losing streak? Play the New York Jets.
