The Jets are 1-4 ATS in their last 5 games as an underdog and 1-4 ATS in their last 5 games overall. The Falcons are 1-5 ATS in their last 6 games as a favorite and 1-4 ATS in their last 5 games overall. The under is 6-2 in Jets last 8 games overall. The under is 5-2 in Falcons last 7 games overall.
The Atlanta Falcons are probably the better team on paper, but that's not saying much. The Falcons are also 32nd in scoring defense and just lost at home to the Washington Football Team. The New York Jets beat a good Titans team last week and are an average to above-average defensive squad, despite issues stopping the run at times. The bottom line is neither of these teams are good, they're poor offensively, and nobody knows how the travel will impact these teams. I wouldn't touch this personally, but I'll take the free field goal if forced to pick.
