Atlanta Falcons vs New York Jets NFL Picks, NFL Predictions & NFL Odds: The New York Jets will look to stay relevent in the AFC Playoff picture today as they host the rapidly fading Falcons at Giants Stadium this afternoon. This inter-conference clash is scheduled to get underway at 1:00pm ET and will be broadcast live on FOX. NFL Picks at online bookmaker SBGglobal.com have the Jets listed as a -7 against the spread home favorite.
Falcons Breakdown: Atlanta postseason aspirations were shattered over the past two weeks as the team dropped back-to-back games against the Eagles and Saints. The Falcons had set the stage for disaster prior to those contests by losing two out of three leading up to them (at Carolina, at New York). Injuries to star players Michael Turner and Matt Ryan certainly did not help Atlanta, which is now 6-7 overall and out of the playoffs.
The Falcons have had a rough time on the road this year, going just 1-5 (3-3 ATS) outside the Georgia Dome. Atlanta has posted an excellent 25.5 point per game average in their away games; however, they have given up a horrendous 28.3 per contest to host squads.
Jets Breakdown: New York looked destined for the scrap heap just a few weeks back, but Rex Ryan's club has become a factor again after reeling off three straight wins. The Jets latest victim was the hapless Buccaneers as New York scored a 26-3 victory against them at Raymond James Stadium on Sunday. New York, at 7-6, moved into the eighth spot in the AFC Playoff standings with the Jacksonville loss on Thursday night. A win for the Jets today coupled with Miami and Baltimore losses, and the team would move into the sixth and final postseason spot.
The Jets have not been an overwhelming force at home this year, sporting a 3-3 (3-3 ATS) record at Giants Stadium. They did win their last game at the Meadowlands, beating Carolina 17-6, but they lost back-to-back home games prior to that to Miami and Jacksonville.
NFL Picks Betting Trend: Atlanta is 0-7 straight up (3-3-1 ATS) over the last five years as a +7 to +9.5 road underdog coming off a loss (Under is 6-1).
Atlanta Falcons +7 (-110), Over 36 (-110), +250 (Moneyline)
New York Jets -7 (-110), Under 36 (-110), -300 (Moneyline)
