New England Patriots look to extend their winning form to two in a row when they take on the NY Jets at MetLife. Here’s a mini-betting preview complete with NFL picks.

Patriots vs. Jets

MetLife Stadium, East Rutherford, NJ

4:25 PM ET

Point Spread Value

The New England Patriots bounced back in week 11 with a 30-17 win over the San Francisco 49ers, all while covering a -10.5 closing spread. It marked the fourth time the Patriots covered a spread of 7 or more in 2016. (The only miss was a 31-24 loss to Seahawks at Gillette as the -7.5 home chalk). We can safely assume the NY Jets and the Seattle Seahawks couldn't be more different, a gulf apart in quality and form. The Jets are 3-7-0 SU and ATS with a -6.5 losing margin on average and -4.3 differential versus the spread. The Patriots are on the road but, arguably, it's impossible to look beyond the Patriots (8-2-0 ATS with a 9.1 winning margin and +4.2 differential versus the spread) on our week 12 NFL picks

The Survivor

It's an AFC East showdown. By virtue of divisional rivalries, this could get a bit ugly, heated and competitive. However, given the form the Jets are currently mired in – two wins in their last eight games, it's impossible to see how they would mastermind what would be the biggest upset of the season. Take the Patriots on your week 12 straight up picks.

Game Totals

Consider the Jets offense is sputtering a mere 17.9 points per game and the defense is conceding 24.4 points per game four of the last six games have cashed on the UNDER. The most recent account was a woeful 9-6 loss to the Rams in week 11. Patriots are 4-6-0 in O/U betting but the offense is firing at all cylinders scoring 27.1 points on average. Defense has been solid and allows just 18.0 points per game. By these NFL betting trends, the total does look high on this game.
