Monday Night Football Betting Odds: Jets vs Titans
Week 15 of the NFL season concludes Monday, December 17, 2012 at 8:30 PM ET when the New York Jets and Tennessee Titans meet at LP Field in Nashville, Tennessee. The Jets actually have a shot at the playoffs after winning two straight games while the Titans are playing out the string with a 4-9 record. New York is in desperate need of a win to stay alive, so we will back the Jets on Monday night.
New York Jets: Still fighting for a playoff spot
After grabbing two straight wins, the Jets are still alive in the playoff hunt in the AFC. New York comes in with a 6-7 mark overall and are just 3-3 on the road. The Jets are finishing out a stretch of games on their schedule that feature teams with losing records, making their push for a playoff spot much easier than some might have originally thought. New York, although on the road, should be able to grab a win.
Tennessee Titans: Playing the role of spoiler
Tennessee will try to play the role of spoiler on Monday night despite a 4-9 overall record and a 2-4 mark at home. The Titans welcome the Jets to town in the hopes of knocking them off and grabbing a fifth win on the season. Running back Chris Johnson will be hard to contain, as he is the eighth player in league history with 1,000 yards rushing in each of his first seasons in the league. The Titans have lost three straight.
This is not one of the premier matchups of week 15 in the NFL but it still brings intrigue to Jets fans back in New York as they wait to see if their team can make a late-season surge to grab a playoff spot. A loss would all but end their chances of reaching the post-season. The online sportsbook at Sportsinteraction.com has the Jets as -1 (-110) favorites. We will put our money down on the spread and the Jets.
