The New York Jets and Denver Broncos will face off on Thursday night in the NFL Network's weekly game. The odds favor the Jets, but the Broncos are coming off of consecutive victories.
The New York Jets and Denver Broncos will play in primetime on Thursday night in the now-weekly game on the NFL Network. The Jets have the better record on the season and, in a move that isn't exactly a surprise, the odds are in favor of the team run by Rex Ryan and Mark Sanchez.
The opening line for the Week 11 game is in favor of the Jets by a modest five points on the road, though there are some betting sites that give the Broncos as many as 6½ points according to the always excellent Odds Shark. Considering Tim Tebow is coming off of two straight victories, that might not be a bad chance to take if anyone is feeling like his leadership abilities might lead to another win on the NFL Network.
The over-under on the NFL Network game is at 42½, a bit lower than some might expect. Considering the Jets have gone "over" during 14 of their last 16 games on the road and the Broncos have gone over in their past five games at home, that might not be a bad bet either.
