The New York Jets were a trendy pick in the preseason to be the AFC's representative at the Super Bowl and they're off to a strong start at 2-0. Armed with a balanced attack offensively and tough defense that blitzes frequently, they will be a tough team to beat on Sunday. That being said, the Jets are just a slight favorite over the Oakland Raiders in week three.
OddsShark.com has the update on various betting lines for the matchup:
Bodog: Jets (-3 1/2; -110), Raiders (+3 1/2; -115)
5 Dimes: Jets (-3 1/2; +105), Raiders (+3 1/2; +125)
Top Bet: Jets (- 3 1/2; -110), Raiders (-3 1/2; -110)
As for the game itself, each team has shown both flashes of brilliance this season, though a fair share of costly mistakes have been made as well. Oakland will be looking to avenge a tough defeat to the Bills last weekend and one should expect the team to come out angry and determined to pull the upset. The Jets will not be an easy opponent, though, especially with most of their starters on defense healthy for week three.
