The New York Jets have to be feeling, at the very least, decent right now. The team is coming off a bye week, and recently had a major 27-24 overtime win over the Tennessee Titans. Considering there were times that the Jets looked like they very well could be the first 0-17 team, the Jets have a big win to build off of and a week off for rest. The New England Patriots, on the other hand, have had some serious close losses in recent weeks to the Tampa Bay Buccaneers and Dallas Cowboys. However, even when they’re looking down, you can never discount a Patriots squad under Bill Belichick. When the rival Jets and Patriots face each other at Gillette Stadium this Sunday, let’s look at the player props you should keep an eye on.
New York Jets vs. New England Patriots Player Prop Search Tool
Mac Jones Under 246.5 Passing Yards
I’ve liked what I’ve seen overall from Mac Jones so far this season. And, no, that’s not just because I have a future OROY ticket on the young passer. Jones hasn’t been totally ripping opposing defenses to shreds, but he’s been putting together competent performances each week. But that’s just it, he hasn’t been putting up yards, even against sub-par defenses. In fact, he’s averaged 245 yards per game against the Dallas Cowboys, Houston Texans, and Tampa Bay Buccaneers the past few weeks, and none of those are exactly top-tier pass defenses. Jones only amassed 186 yards against the Jets in Week 1. Go under his total in this one.
Corey Davis Over 3.5 Receptions
Rookie QB Zach Wilson must be a big fan of Corey Davis, because he’s been getting the ball out to him consistently. The Jets WR has averaged 4.3 catches in his past three games, and it seems like the Wilson-Davis connection is starting to grow. New England has a fairly average pass defense, and I’m expecting Davis to get his fair share of looks as the Jets fight hard in this matchup.
Hunter Henry Under 37.5 Receiving Yards
As long as I’ve got Mac Jones going under, I’m going to do the same for his tight end. Hunter Henry hasn’t been making fans forget about Rob Gronkowski, but he’s put together some good performances, already finding the end zone three times. His yardage totals, however, haven’t been spectacular. Henry has only gone over his projected 37.5 yardage total twice this season, and I’m not sure he will until Jones really starts slinging the ball.
Damien Harris Over 64.5 Rushing Yards
Ah, another player I placed a future on, this time for the rushing total crown. Not looking good so far. Still, when he’s used right, Harris has been tearing it up. We saw this last week, as the running back amassed 101 yards with a 5.6 average and a touchdown. The Jets defense has been allowing 123.4 yards on the ground per game this year, and I believe the Pats will try to incorporate him more now that he’s found his groove. Plus, if the Patriots get up on the Jets early, they’ll want to run Harris to keep the clock ticking.
