Giants Vs. Jets: Will A Black Cat Cross The Path Of This New York NFL Battle?

It’s Giants vs. Jets in an NFL Week 10 matchup that is a battle of two lowly New York teams. Will the black cat return? Check out NJ sportsbook odds.

Call it the battle of New York, the battle of New Jersey, or the battle of the inept. It’s Giants vs. Jets. And maybe also a black cat.

The hapless New York Jets meet the lowly Giants in an NFL Week 10 matchup that happens every four years.

The Jets lost to the previously winless Miami Dolphins in Week 9. However, these same Jets actually opened up as ever-so-slight favorites over the Giants on the look-ahead lines posted at some of the top NJ sportsbooks.

At the very least, some NJ oddsmakers were calling this a pick’em game on Sunday night.

Most adjusted the lines to make the Giants the favorite as they prepared to face the Dallas Cowboys on Monday Night Football in Week 9. But New York lost that game, too. Some blame a black cat for the loss:

NJ sportsbooks must have been leaning on the fact the Jets are technically the home side for the Giants vs. Jets in Week 10.

A home game for both?

The thing is, both teams play home games at MetLife Stadium at the Meadowlands Sports Complex in East Rutherford.

So, both sides can really call this a home game. Although, Jets season ticket holders, if there are any left, will have the first choice when it comes to seats.

The Jets fell to 1-7 losing to an awful Dolphins team on Sunday, 26-18. Dolphins QB Ryan Fitzpatrick, a former Jet, threw for three scores as the Dolphins took a big second-quarter lead and never looked back.

Of course, the Giants headed into the Monday night game with Dallas sporting an almost-as-ugly 2-7 record. Rookie QB Daniel Jones showed promise after taking over for veteran QB Eli Manning earlier this year but has become turnover prone as the season has worn on.

The Giants stayed close to the Cowboys for three quarters on Monday night before Dallas pulled away. The 37-18 loss dropped the Giants to 2-7. However, that’s still twice as many wins as the Jets, which could be why the Giants are road favorites heading into this week’s game.

Giants vs. Jets: the rivalry and its history

Even though they play at the same home stadium, the Giants and Jets have only met 13 times in NFL history. The Giants lead the series with an 8-5 record.

The Jets actually won by a field goal in an overtime thriller the last time the two New York teams met in 2015. However, the Giants had won five in a row dating back to 1996 before that.

The Giants have also beaten the Jets in three straight preseason games held the past three summers.

The last Giants vs. Jets regular-season game in December 2015 saw then-Jets QB Fitzpatrick complete 36 of 50 passes for 390 yards and 2 TDs. Manning went 18 for 34 for 297, a touchdown, and an interception for the Giants. Neither team ran the ball effectively.

Fitzpatrick threw a nine-yard TD pass to WR Brandon Marshall with 27 seconds left to tie it at 20.

But in the end, Randy Bullock was the hero for the Jets, kicking a 31-yard field goal in overtime to make the final score 23-20.

Somebody has to win

Unless this week’s Giants vs. Jets game ends in a tie, one team will actually get a win this week, leaving their fans only slightly less disappointed on their New York side than the other.

And who knows? Maybe someone will let the black cat out of the bag on Sunday, too.

The game airs at 1 p.m. ET Sunday on Fox.

Cowboys Vs. Giants Odds: New York Big Underdogs To Turn The Season Around

The New York Giants look to turn the season around facing the Dallas Cowboys on Monday Night Football in NFL Week 9. NJ sportsbook odds favor Dallas.

The 2-6 New York Giants will be looking for some redemption and the chance to turn the season around facing the Dallas Cowboys in New Jersey on Monday Night Football this week.

NJ sportsbooks have made the 4-3 Cowboys at least a touchdown favorite, mainly due to the fact they beat the Giants by 18 points in Week 1.

However, oddsmakers may be forgetting a long history of close Cowboys vs. Giants matchups. Let’s take a closer look.

Cowboys get rest, Giants find rhythm

The Cowboys should be rested coming off a bye in Week 8.

But the Giants may have some rhythm, at least on offense, as they scored 26 points in a loss to the Detroit Lions on Sunday.

The problem with betting on New York to keep it close is the defense. The Giants gave up 342 passing yards to Lions QB Matthew Stafford and 35 points overall in Week 8.

Cowboys vs. Giants: NFC East rivals

Dallas leads the overall series between the two NFC East rivals with a record of 67-46-2.

In fact, the Cowboys have won five straight, including the 35-17 dismantling of the Giants in Week 1.

Dallas QB Dak Prescott went 25 for 32 for 405 yards and four touchdowns in that game, outdueling then-Giants starter Eli Manning, who went 30 for 44 for 306 yards and a TD.

Although, Giants running back Saquon Barkley was impressive, posting 120 yards on 11 carries.

Rookie QB Daniel Jones will start for the Giants this time around. He went 2-0 in his first two starts for the team this year but has since dropped four straight.

The thing is, this Cowboys vs. Giants matchup has been historically closer than all that suggests this game will be. In fact, 25 of the 41 Cowboys-Giants games in this millennium have been decided by seven points or less.

Last season, the Giants came within a point of the Cowboys in the final regular-season game for both teams. The Cowboys won 36-35 on a Prescott to Cole Beasley 32-yard TD pass with about a minute to play.

That was a Sunday game at MetLife Stadium this past December. This one is Monday, Nov. 4 at MetLife with kickoff set for 8:15 p.m. ET. ESPN will televise the game.

NBA Betting: Brooklyn Favored To Net Their First Win In Friday’s Meeting With NY Knicks

Nets-Knicks betting odds for the first meeting of the two teams favor Brooklyn to get its first win while sending New York to an 0-2 start.

Brooklyn could quickly get the bad taste of its home and season opener out of its mouth. The Nets-Knicks betting odds favor Brooklyn in Friday night’s first meeting of the two teams this season.

Although both NBA teams come into the tilt at 0-1, the Nets had a better showing in their first contest of 2019-20.

That was partially due to a record-setting debut.

Why the Nets-Knicks betting odds favor Brooklyn

No player in NBA history has had a better debut with a team in terms of points scored than Nets guard Kyrie Irving.

Irving dropped 50 on the Minnesota Timberwolves in his first regular-season game in a Brooklyn uniform. Unfortunately for Irving’s team, it wasn’t enough to overcome earlier deficits. Minnesota escaped with a 127-126 overtime win.

New York suffered a similar fate in rookie RJ Barrett’s professional debut.

Barrett didn’t set any records, but he did score 21 points in his first NBA game. The San Antonio Spurs outscored the Knicks 37-27 in the final quarter to claim the 120-111 win, however.

While both stars had solid debuts for their teams, only one can lead his team to win No. 1 on Friday when the squads meet. Operators involved in New Jersey sports betting are more optimistic about Irving’s chances to do so.

Odds at NJ sportsbooks for Nets vs. Knicks

Several New Jersey sportsbooks have all the traditional bets plus alternate lines and team props available for Barrett’s first game against Irving.

The NBA spreads, moneylines, and point totals at three of the most popular books are pretty similar (as of 7 a.m. ET Oct. 25):

William Hill has an attractive +950 line on the Knicks winning the game by 1-3 points. FanDuel Sportsbook currently offers odds of +1000 that Barrett will score the game’s first point.

Other bets include half and quarter totals along with player statistics over/under lines. Given the history of this Nets vs. Knicks matchup, a lot of those bets are in play.

History of Nets vs. Knicks in Brooklyn

Since the Nets relocated to the Barclays Center and rebranded prior to the 2012-13 season, these two teams have been evenly matched. Each team has won exactly half of the 28 regular-season games played by the two squads.

In Brooklyn home games, however, the Nets have had a slight advantage. Brooklyn has won eight of the 14 meetings on its home court, including both home games last season.

Irving will be the focus of attention on Friday, and for good reason following his Nets debut. History shows him to be a capable foe for the Knicks, although not to the degree he beguiled the Timberwolves on Wednesday.

In 23 career games against New York, Irving averages just under 24.5 points per game. While that’s slightly better than his conventional career scoring average of 22.2 points, it isn’t lethal in and of itself.

As both teams are playing only their second games of the season, it’s way too early to make any assessments on either squad based on statistics. A solid strategy for both teams, however, might simply be trying to play some defense.

San Antonio shot more than 50% from the field on Wednesday against the Knicks. Minnesota turned the ball over only 13 times on the same night in Brooklyn.

Whether the Knicks have the firepower to overcome another 50-point effort by Irving is questionable, as is whether Irving has that in him. Because of those storylines, the Nets are a slight favorite to get their first win Friday night.

Packers Vs. Chiefs Odds: No Patrick Mahomes Makes Kansas City A Home Dog

NJ sportsbooks have the Chiefs as home underdogs against the Packers on Sunday with MVP Patrick Mahomes out and Aaron Rodgers playing better than ever.

The 5-2 Kansas City Chiefs will play the role of home underdogs for the first time in a long while this week. They face the 6-1 Green Bay Packers in the marquee NFL Week 8 Sunday Night Football matchup.

This is mostly due to the fact reigning NFL MVP Patrick Mahomes will not play after suffering a freak kneecap injury in a win over the Denver Broncos on Sunday.

Backup QB Matt Moore will start for the Chiefs in Mahomes’ absence this week.

However, New Jersey sportsbooks may also have the Packers as road favorites because QB Aaron Rodgers is coming off one of the best performances of his 15-year NFL career.

Rodgers threw for 429 yards and five TD passes to push the Packers to a 42-24 dismantling of the Oakland Raiders last week. He also ran for a touchdown, playing his way into the MVP conversation this season, just as Mahomes is possibly limping his way out of it.

Packers vs. Chiefs history

There isn’t much history between these two storied franchises.

Although, they did face each other in the first-ever Super Bowl. Vince Lombardi’s Packers beat Hank Stram’s Chiefs 35-10 to win Super Bowl I back in 1967.

Packers Chiefs history super bowl 1

All told, the Chiefs and Packers have only met 12 times in the NFL’s previous 99 seasons. Kansas City won five straight from 1989 to 2003 and the Chiefs are 7-4-1 all-time against the Packers.

However, the two teams are 2-2 in this millennium.

The Packers beat the Chiefs 38-28 the last time they played. It was an early-season Monday Night Football game at Lambeau Field in Green Bay in 2015. The Packers built a 24-point lead in the fourth quarter, and it took two late touchdowns by the Chiefs to make it as close as it was.

Rodgers threw for 333 yards and five TD passes against a Chiefs team that looks a lot different than the current one. He’ll be looking to do something similar on the road under the Sunday night lights this week.

A Sunday night full of questions

The big question this week is if Moore can be as steady as he was coming off the bench against the Broncos.

He didn’t make any critical mistakes and will need to avoid making any against Green Bay if the Chiefs hope to compete on Sunday night.

But there are still more questions heading into the game.

The Chiefs defense played better than it has all season against Denver. Will it continue its resurgence, or will Rodgers put together another MVP-like performance for the Packers?

The answers will come soon after the 8:20 p.m. ET kickoff at Arrowhead Stadium in Kansas City on Oct. 27. NBC will broadcast the game.

Eagles Vs. Bills: NJ Sportsbooks Giving Philadelphia Tons Of Respect

Coming off an ugly loss, the Philadelphia Eagles are getting a surprising amount of respect from New Jersey sportsbooks for NFL Week 8 vs. Bills.

Coming off an ugly loss against the Dallas Cowboys, the Philadelphia Eagles are getting a lot more respect from New Jersey sportsbook apps than they’ve earned.

In fact, the Eagles are just slight road underdogs against the 5-1 Buffalo Bills this week.

Tight lines for this NFL Week 8 marquee inter-conference matchup aren’t that shocking.

However, a Philadelphia team looking to get back on track should probably be bigger underdogs against a Buffalo squad trying to keep the ball rolling and prove they are a real threat in the AFC this season.

Perhaps the fact the Bills barely survived Sunday against their AFC East rival Miami Dolphins is impacting oddsmakers’ thinking.

NJ sportsbooks may be showing a bit of an NFC over AFC bias.

The 5-1 Buffalo Bills

The Bills got their fifth win of the season Sunday posting a 31-21 victory over the winless Dolphins.

Although, Buffalo was down 14-9 to the hapless Dolphins at the half and needed the fourth-quarter offensive explosion quarterback Josh Allen provided to secure the win.

Allen went 6 for 14 in the first half. Then he got hot late, going 7-for-7 with two TD passes on two fourth-quarter drives to give Buffalo the 10-point win.

The question coming into the Eagles game will be if the second-year QB will stay hot against Philadelphia or start as slow as he did against Miami.

Questions also surround the Bills defense for the first time this season. Second-year cornerback Levi Wallace was burned repeatedly against Miami.

Plus, the Bills’ pass rush was less than impressive.

A 27-point Eagles loss in Dallas

In the meantime, the Eagles got down early against the Cowboys on Sunday night and were never really in the game. Philadelphia ultimately fell 37-10 to a Dallas team that had previously lost three in a row.

Eagles QB Carson Wentz went 16 for 26 for just 191 yards and a TD in the loss. He also threw an interception and fumbled a snap late, ending any hope of an Eagles comeback.

Plus, the defense could not stop Cowboys running back Ezekiel Elliott or wide receiver Amari Cooper. Elliott rushed for 111 yards and a TD on 22 carries and Cooper caught five balls for 106 yards.

Now, the suspect-looking 3-4 Eagles have suddenly lost two in a row.

Plus, they’ll head into a game against a Buffalo team whose only loss so far this season was to the undefeated New England Patriots.

Yet still, NJ sportsbooks aren’t even forcing the Bills to give up the standard three-point spread most home teams have to.

Eagles vs. Bills history

The history between the two teams couldn’t have informed oddsmakers too much, simply because there isn’t much of one.

The Eagles and Bills have only met 13 times in the NFL’s 100-year history.

The Eagles won all four meetings in the 1980s. Then the Bills won four straight in the 1990s.

The Eagles have won three out of four this millennium. This included a 23-20 win the last time the two teams met in 2015. It ended on a 30-yard game-winning field goal with just 3:26 left in the game.

However, both the Eagles and Bills rosters have turned over considerably since then.

Only time will tell if oddsmakers are right in giving the Eagles so much respect this week.

Kickoff is set for 1 p.m. ET at New Era Field in Orchard Park, NY. Fox will provide TV coverage of the game.

Eagles Vs. Cowboys: Tight Lines At NJ Sportsbooks Are No Surprise

Another Eagles vs. Cowboys bitter NFC East rivalry game is the marquee Sunday Night Football matchup on the Week 7 NFL schedule. Here are the current odds.

Another Eagles vs. Cowboys bitter NFC East rivalry game is the marquee Sunday Night Football matchup on the Week 7 NFL schedule.

It’s the first of at least two meetings between the two teams as the 3-3 Philadelphia Eagles visit the 3-3 Dallas Cowboys.

Battle for the NFC East lead

The New York Giants and Washington Redskins have proven so inept this season that Philadelphia and Dallas actually share the NFC East lead at 3-3.

However, both teams limp into this Sunday Night game coming off losses.

In fact, the Cowboys have lost three in a row after a 3-0 start. Dallas actually lost to the previously winless New York Jets on Sunday, falling behind early and failing on a two-point conversion that would have tied the game in the final minutes.

The Minnesota Vikings beat the Eagles, 38-20, on Sunday. Vikings receiver Stefon Diggs torched a depleted Eagles secondary posting seven catches for 167 yards and three touchdowns.

The Eagles offense didn’t wake up until they were down 24-3 in the first half. Philadelphia got within four points in the third quarter, but the team was plagued by turnovers and miscues late as the Vikings ran away with it.

Based on that, and the history between the two teams, it was no surprise to see some very tight lines for this game at the top NJ sports betting apps.

Eagles, Cowboys and recent history

The two teams have met 120 times, including four times in the postseason, and a lot of those matches turned into memorable battles. Dallas owns the all-time Eagles vs. Giants series with a 68-52 record.

The tight spread for this week’s game indicates oddsmakers are expecting a close one. Recent history would suggest they’re right.

In fact, three out of the past seven Cowboys-Eagles games have gone to overtime, and the last three matchups were all decided by a touchdown or less.

The Cowboys won 29-23 in an overtime thriller the last time the two teams met.

It was December 2018 in Dallas. The Eagles tied the game with a touchdown in the final two minutes. However, the Cowboys ended it in overtime with a 15-yard TD pass from Dak Prescott to Amari Cooper.

Winning on a touchdown rather than a field goal meant Dallas covered the 3.5-point spread. The over (45.5 points) also came in.

The Cowboys also beat the Eagles 27-20 in Philadelphia on Nov. 11, 2018.

The Eagles tied the game at 20 in the fourth quarter. However, an Ezekiel Elliott rushing TD with less than four minutes to play won it for the Cowboys.

Philadelphia was 7.5-point favorites at home. The over came in with the teams combining to score more than the 45.5-point line.

Injuries may be a factor on Sunday

Injuries are likely a factor in the Cowboys having to give up less than the standard three points at home this week.

Dallas was down two starting offensive lineman and wide receiver Randall Cobb against the Jets this week. Three-time Pro Bowl receiver Cooper also aggravated a quad injury against the Jets. He left the game in the first quarter and did not return.

Thankfully, it appears Cooper’s injury is not as worrisome as originally thought.

Further news on these Cowboys players could move the lines later in the week.

On the flip side, Philadelphia has some injury troubles of its own and will likely be playing with the same depleted secondary that Vikings QB Kirk Cousins threw for 330 yards and four touchdowns against Sunday.

Kickoff is scheduled for 8:20 p.m. ET on Oct. 20 and the game will air on NBC.
