As a team, Oakland is averaging 371.7 yards of total offense and 22.5 points per game while allowing 370 yards of total defense and 25 points per game against this season.
The New York Jets will look to build on back-to-back wins after a 34-17 win over the Washington Redskins last time out. Sam Darnold has thrown for 1,600 yards, 11 touchdowns and 10 interceptions on 63.2% passing while LeVeon Bell has 508 rushing yards and 3 touchdowns. Jamison Crowder leads the Jets with 562 receiving yards and 53 catches with 3 touchdown grabs while Demaryius Thomas, Robby Anderson and the aforementioned Bell each have 300+ receiving yards this season. Defensively, Jamal Adams leads the Jets with 56 total tackles and 6 sacks this season. As a team, New York is averaging 248.2 yards of total offense and 16.4 points per game while allowing 332.4 yards of total defense and 25.5 points per game against this season.
Oakland is 5-2 ATS in their last 7 games overall and 3-8 ATS in their last 11 road games while the under is 7-2-1 in their last 10 games against the AFC. New York is 2-7-1 ATS in their last 10 home games and 6-13-1 ATS in their last 20 games overall while the over is 4-1 in their last 5 games in November. Oakland is 4-1 ATS in the last 5 meetings between these two teams.
New York and a free field goal at home would be worth a look if the Jets weren’t one of the hardest teams in the NFL to trust and figure out. Oakland is starting to look like the Raiders team that we’d hope we’d see all along over the last couple of years and are starting to look like a legitimate threat for one of the wild card spots this postseason. The Raiders had a bit of a scare against Cincinnati and probably should’ve won by more, but we’re only being asked to lay a field goal here and the Raiders are just a better option than the Jets. I’ll lay the field goal with Oakland in this spot.
