It’s week 16, and the holiday season is in full swing as we take a trip to the Christmas capital to see how the Jacksonville Jaguars hold up to the New York Jets at the MetLife stadium. The Jets will have looked at weeks 15 and 16 as opportunities to get some wins on the board when the schedule was released earlier this year, but can they follow through with those expectations and get the W here?

Jaguars vs Jets Highlights
If you were hoping to bet on NFL games this week, this might be one of the harder matchups to call. However, we will give you some ideas as to how we see Jacksonville Jaguars vs New York Jets finishing. The series is all tied at 8 apiece, so it’s everything to play for, but how will this week’s southern opponents adjust to the cold of the Big Apple in midwinter? These two met on Boxing Day last season in New York, and that ended with a Jets win, 26-21.
In fact, the Jaguars haven’t won in New York against the Jets since 2009, but it was after that match that things began to change for the visiting team. The Jets had the worst defense of the year in 2021, and they will be up against it as the Jaguars boast a much-improved receiving corps. They should be able to provide quarterback Trevor Lawrence with the weapons he needs to repeat the form that saw him drafted as the no1 overall pick in 2021.
NFL betting odds will likely have a fairly tight spread on these two, but the visitors should be the favorites to cover it. It might be worth looking at the Over Points wager, as these two have gone 40+ points in all 5 of their last 5 games.
