Raiders vs. Jets 2013 odds: New York slight favorites at home

The Jets are only a field goal favorite to beat the Raiders at home.

The New York Jets host the Oakland Raiders in Week 14, and Vegas is predicting a close match. According to OddsShark, the Jets are favored by just 2.5 to 3.5 points.

With the season effectively over for both teams, there's not much at stake except pride and a possible roster spot next year for players. The Raiders lost their fourth game in five weeks, falling to the Dallas Cowboys, 31-24. They did manage to cover the +9.5 point spread. Oakland falls to 4-8 in the standings but have been a good bet for gamblers, going 8-4 against the spread.

Geno Smith hit rock bottom last week, getting benched for Matt Simms in the Jets' 23-3 loss to the Miami Dolphins. The Jets have named Smith the starter again, but their playoff hopes are almost over and Rex Ryan is right back on the hot seat. New York fell to 5-7 in the standings and 6-6 against the spread. They must win out to get a shot at the final wild card spot in the AFC, but they have no control over their destiny.
