Football Betting at Get That Bet — Jets Need Pressure to Hold Off Chargers


The New York Jets are handicapped by a lot of things these days, and one of them is the fact that they don’t have a whole lot of available defensive backs. Unfortunately for them, they will be facing a team that really knows how to spread around the ball when they face the San Diego Chargers in Sunday football betting action that is slated to begin at 4:25 PM ET at Qualcomm Stadium.

The Jets are hitting some speed bumps, as they deal with a quarterback who is not all that effective. But then, as Get That Bet customers know, that is a scenario they are used to having, going back to Rex Ryan’s first year at the helm, when he placed all his faith in Mark Sanchez. This time it’s Geno Smith, drafted in the second round last year and still feeling his way around the league. With seven turnovers, Smith needs to play with more control, because the Chargers have a guy who is all about control in Philip Rivers throwing passes for them.

As it stands now, the Jets are 1-3, both straight-up and against the football pointspread, while the Chargers, after a heart-breaking opening game loss to the Cardinals, have roared back to win the next three and are 4-0 versus the points.

In the football betting odds that have been placed on this game at Get That Bet (, the Chargers are laying some points at home:

One of the things that makes Rivers so effective is the fact that he can find a number of different receivers. That includes wideouts like Keenan Allen, Malcom Floyd and Eddie Royal, as well as legendary tight end Antonio Gates. That will put a lot of pressure on the Jets’ secondary, which might not be able to handle it. As Get That Bet customers are well aware, Ryan tries to compensate with a lot of blitzing, and in this case he may find some openings, as San Diego is likely going with a third-string center, Doug Legursky, who will find himself having to deal with gap blitzes all day long.

While it is true that Rivers had some problems negotiating center snaps last week, football bettors must also concede that San Diego has been very good at improvisation on offense, ever since Mike McCoy arrived at head coach. In fact, Rivers had to play all of last season with two wide receivers out and offensive line re-shuffling every week.

Speaking of wide receivers, the Jets’ big off-season acquisition, Eric Decker, continues to be hampered by a hamstring injury that will, in all probability, limit his effectiveness. New York is not awash in wideouts, so this is a situation where Smith, who is not nearly the resourceful QB Rivers is, must come with a “Plan B,” and very early on. Written By Charles Jay Google +.
