Falcons vs Jets Betting Prediction 

Atlanta was able to get a huge win over the Saints last week and they are tied for first in the NFC South, despite having a losing record. On the other side, New York has lost four games in a row and the last two have been pretty ugly. The Jets were out scored by a total of 66-19 against Miami and Buffalo, and they are only 2-4 at home. Atlanta’s offense has played decently well over the last four games, but their defense has been an issue, allowing 25+ points in three of their last four games. I think this is a matchup that favors Atlanta, as the Jets don’t have the offensive attack to take advantage of the Atlanta defense. Take the Falcons here.
