Jets vs. Cowboys NFL Betting Lines Preview

Where: AT&T Stadium, Arlington, Texas
TV: NFL Network

The NFL Week 15 odds for this contest have the visiting Jets as 3-point road favorites to beat Dallas after opening at the same three points it currently sits at. The Over/Under Total for this contest is set at 41 and you can bet on the Jets as a -152 pick against the NFL Moneyline or Dallas as a +138 pick against the Moneyline. Jets Flying High, Cowboys…Not!

Why Bet The Dallas Cowboys at +3

Like George Washington, I can not tell a lie NFL gaming enthusiasts! The fact of the matter is that there is no good reason to back the Cowboys in this Week 15 affair! The Cowboys (4-9 SU, 4-9 ATS) are just 1-5 ATS at home this season and will once again be without quarterback Tony Romo, a player they clearly need as they’ve gone 1-8 without their starter this season.

Hell, even owner Jerry Jones knows his team is mediocre at best. “I don’t have the heart to put us in with those clubs right now, because I don’t want to – we’ve got more work to do than just get Romo healthy,” Jones said. “And I’m not just saying that to be magnanimous here for anybody in some way. But we’ve got a lot of work (to do).

“I want you to know that there are some things that we have to do better for us to have a healthy Romo and have an effective Dez Bryant. There’s some things we’ve got to really address and do better as we look over these last three games and in the future.”


Why Bet The New York Jets at -3

The Jets (8-5 SU, 7-5-1 ATS) are on a nice roll right now, having won three straight games including their overwhelming 30-8 spanking of Tennessee last weekend. New York has covered the spread in each of their last three games following a four-game ATS skid and are simply the better team on both sides of the ball in this affair.

Last but not least, the Jets have legitimate playoff hopes and will have a ton of motivation because of that fact.

“Offensively, we’ve got some good chemistry going right now,” veteran quarterback Ryan Fitzpatrick said. “I think our health is pretty good and so we’ve set ourselves up offensively just to continue to get better. It’s going to be exciting to see what happens the next few weeks with our group.”

Expert Pick & Final Score Prediction

The First thing I want to know is…who the hell is among the 29 percent of public bettors that foolishly believe the Dallas Cowboys are going to cover the spread in this contest? Sorry to inform you Cowboys betting backers, but there’s no way on God’s green earth that Dallas wins or covers the spread in this contest!

The Jets are a blistering 9-1-1 ATS in their last 11 games in the month of December and 6-2-1 ATS in their last nine games following an SU win. The Cowboys are 3-8 ATS in their last 11 games and a dismal 1-6 ATS in their last seven home games.

Again, there’s no reason whatsoever to believe the Cowboys can win this contest!

My final score prediction: New York 27 Dallas 10
