The Washington Commanders and New York Jets face off on Sunday in an NFL showdown MetLife Stadium. Let’s look at the betting matchup and give a free Commanders vs Jets prediction

Commanders Have Been Nothing but Disappointing

Early in the season, there was some hope for the Commanders, but all that hope is now lost. Washington has lost five straight games and a few of those have been blowout losses. Against the Dallas Cowboys and Miami Dolphins they have given up 45 points. In the last game against the Los Angeles Rams they scored 20 points, but the defense gave up 28 points. Sam Howell right now is playing for his future as the starting quarterback of this team and they are going to need him to play well. Washington on the season is averaging 20.1 points while their defense is giving up 30.2 points per game. In this game they are going to need the offense to have a strong game here. 

Commanders Betting Trends

  • The Commanders have won each of their last four games as road underdogs against AFC opponents.
  • The Commanders have failed to cover the spread in each of their last seven games following a road loss.
  • The Commanders have lost the first quarter in each of their last two Sunday games against teams that held a losing record.
  • The Commanders have lost the first half in each of their last six games against teams that held a losing record.
  • Each of the Commanders' last four Week 16 games as road underdogs have gone OVER the total points line.

Can the Jets Bounce Back?

The Jets season is all but over and there have to be some questions about if this team has just given up on the season. In the last game against the Miami Dolphins the defense was awful, but even worse was the offense that failed to score any points. Trevor Sieman got some extended run in the last game and he completed 14 of his 266 passes for 110 yards, zero touchdowns, and two interceptions. The Jets only had 12 rushing attempts and they need a more balanced attack. The Jets on the season are averaging 14.4 points while their defense is giving up 20.5 points per game. Zach Wilson is dealing with a concussion and it’s unclear if he’s going to be able to go in this game. The Jets will meet the Browns after this game.

Jets Betting Trends

  • The Jets have lost each of their last five home games against teams that held a losing record.
  • The Jets have failed to cover the spread in eight of their last nine games against teams that held a losing record.
  • The Jets have lost the first quarter in each of their last four games at MetLife Stadium following a road loss.
  • The Jets have lost the first half in eight of their last nine home games.
  • The Jets have scored the first touchdown in eight of their last 10 games played as favorites on the East Coast.

Commanders vs Jets Betting Prediction 

I am not too concerned about who starts at quarterback for the Jets, they are going to struggle to score. The Jets offense is awful and they don’t have a good quarterback available for them. The Jets defense is going to step up in a big way here and Washington is also going to really struggle here. Both offenses are going to struggle to score and this game is going to go under the total. 

The pick in this article is the opinion of the writer, not a PickDawgz site consensus.
