NFL Week 1 Point Spreads – Tampa Bay Buccaneers vs. New York Jets Trends


The Tampa Bay Buccaneers and the New York Jets will be battling on the gridiron at MetLife Stadium on Sunday in season-opening action. NFL Odds makers currently have the Buccaneers listed as 3-point Spreads favorites versus the Jets, while the game’s total has been posted at 39.5.

NFL Week 1 Point Spreads It’s no secret that Rex Ryan is on the hottest seat amongst his NFL coaching brethren. There are questions about whether he has the locker room behind him and his bizarre postgame presser after Mark Sanchez was injured in a preseason game seemingly spoke volumes about his unstable job situation. Ryan genuinely doesn’t seem to care what image he is projecting at this point; if he did, he likely wouldn’t have left the Jets on cut-down day to watch his son’s Clemson football team play.

“Ryan’s intentions may have been pure, but his decision to leave on cut-down day will fuel the perception that he has lost power in the organization to new general manager John Idzik,” wrote’s Rich Cimini.

We’ll leave questions about why Ryan is willing to do things that could be interpreted as losing control of his team to others, but in the end, the odds are stacked against Ryan staying on as coach in 2014. So who might Idzik hire to replace Ryan, if the coach were let go?

Last time out for Tampa Bay, they were a 30-12 loser as they battled the Redskins at home. The Buccaneers failed to cover in the match as a 2.5-point underdog, while 42 combined points moved the game OVER for totals bettors.  In their last action, New York was a 27-20 winner at home against the Eagles. They covered the 5-point spread as underdogs, while the combined score (47) was profitable news for OVER bettors.
