Jumping off the Jets Bandwagon
The Jets lost in miserable fashion against the Colts last week. This performance and the locker room turmoil are causing the betting public to jump on the Broncos in this game. Over 85 percent of the bets are coming in on the Mile High City. The Broncos started out as (-2.5) road favorites but now the betting odds have the Broncos (-3) across all of the major sports betting sites.
Gone Gase Gone
The latest rumors indicate that Jets HC Adam Gase might be fired as early as Thursday and this could be his last game.
“I have been told that the New York #Jets owners have reached out to an agent to ask about coaching possibilities. Thursday is my guess… Adam Gase’s last day as a New York Jets head coach.” – @ColinCowherd

Rumors are flying that Adam Gase will be a goner if the Jets lose on Thursday night. Asked how he’s handling the speculation and criticism, Gase said, “This is the NFL. We’re 0-3 right now. We haven’t played well. We have to improve quickly. My job is… https://t.co/enFZOOBEWy

This is not a surprise as Gase as lost 30 games by double-digits in his coaching career and is 30-38 as a head coach overall. This could have an impact on the game. Players are not likely to go hard for Gase as many have been outspoken about his tenure with the Jets. Or they may play hard because they realize that they are auditioning for a new coach and want to prove they should play.
It may not matter as the Jets are missing three top pass catchers and a starting running back. This puts Sam Darnold in a tough spot.
Broncos QB rotation
Backing the Broncos with a bet is not a slam dunk. They are on the road with a short week and they don’t know who will play quarterback. Dre Lock is hurt, Jeff Driskel got benched and Brett Rypien looked bad. Is it time for Blake Bortles? Thankfully, no as the team has announced the starter for Thursday night.

Broncos vs Jets pick against the spread
I make a habit of never backing a bad team as a road favorite. The Broncos are 2-6 ATS in their last 8 games as a favorite and 1-5 ATS in their last 6 games following a double-digit loss at home. It’s hard to find many solid trends to back the Jets but they have covered four of the last five games as a home underdog.
