A week ago, the New York Jets looked like a team poised to contend for a Super Bowl title with Aaron Rodgers leading the way.
Unfortunately, that assumption lasted for just a few days.
The Jets announced this week that Rodgers, their top acquisition of the summer, has played his final game of the season after sustaining a season-ending Achilles tendon injury on Week 1.
With that devasting development, the Jets must now accept reality.
They need to move on quickly because the Dallas Cowboys are coming to add more insult to the injury.
The Cowboys are now -8.5 points in the spread, and Rodgers’ injury is a big reason why the spread widens that much.
Dallas is a solid pick to cover this spread. The Cowboys special teams and defense are absolutely terrific in their 40-0 domination over the New York Giants on Week 1.
The over/under has been set by oddsmakers at a rather low 40.5 points. In this game, both teams likely have offensive limitations, making the under a tempting wager.
I also recommend you to consider placing a wager on the first-half under (21.5), the Cowboys under 24.5 points, the Jets under 14.5 points, and the Cowboys moneyline (-450) in a same-game parlay.
In a contest when strong defenses are anticipated, this combination has a high probability to take place.
"Overall, the Dallas Cowboys clearly have the upper hand in this game, especially given that the Jets lost Rodgers and rookie quarterback Zach Wilson is still learning his way around. Both teams should play well defensively, with the Cowboys ultimately winning and covering the spread."
Prediction: Dallas Cowboys 24, New York Jets 10
