The New York Jets host the New England Patriots in a suddenly intriguing divisional matchup on Monday Night Football to close out Week 7 of the 2019 NFL season. The Patriots are undefeated and heavily favored, but the Jets have Sam Darnold back in the saddle and coming off an upset of the Cowboys to get their first win of the season.
The Patriots are 9.5-point favorite at DraftKings Sportsbook and the point total sits at 44. The line opened at ten, but the betting public seems at least moderately intrigued by the return of Darnold. The Patriots are 4-2 against the spread, while the Jets are 2-3 against the spread.
There are some notable injury issues that need to be sorted out heading into the game. Patriots wide receiver Josh Gordon has been ruled out, while Julian Edelman, Phillip Dorsett, and running back Rex Burkhead are all questionable. For fantasy football owners, questionable tags for MNF are not good. Edelman is the most likely of the group to play, but we’ll see with the others.
We’ll be tracking everything for the game, from odds to fantasy. Check back here throughout for everything that goes down in what could be a fun divisional matchup.
