NFL Monday Night Cash-In: Jets vs. Falcons

Wild on Sports
NFL Monday Night Cash-In

After a weekend of tough match-ups and even tougher lines we waited until Monday night to deliver our NFL Lock of the Week.

New York Jets (+10) @ Atlanta Falcons (-10)
Over/Under: 44.5

The desperate Atlanta Falcons (1-3) will play host to the surprisingly mediocre New York Jets (2-2) on Monday Night Football. Don't let the records fool you. These are two teams at opposite ends of the spectrum in terms of ability. Both teams are a little beat up right now but the Falcons and Matt Ryan's offense can still move the ball with the best of them...when healthy. The Jets will likely be with two of their top receivers in Santonio Holmes and Stephen Hill. The Falcons secondary is in shambles and could potentially have two street free agents starting at linebacker. Running back Steven Jackson will miss his second straight game. 

Despite the injuries, these are two very solid defensive teams. Most noteworthy, the inferior of the two offenses is led by a rookie QB who has yet to face a pass rush like that of the Falcons. Expect the Jets offense to struggle, while the defense keeps it just close enough to avoid embarrassment.

For those of you into historical trends -- five of the past six match-ups between these two teams have gone under the total.

Pick: UNDER 44.5
