3 units on Game Total OVER 43.5 -105 (risk 3 to return 3) RESULT: LOSS
Brett Favre, after a slow start learning the Jets system, has really taken off. The Jets have scored 85 points in their last two games with Favre throwing for 560 yards and nine touchdowns! He's completing over 70% of his passes on the season. That momentum should continue as I expect him to post another big game against the soft Bengal defense. Favre usually struggles when he gets pressured into mistakes, but the Bengals have recorded just three sacks on the season. The Bengals offense is very underrated right now. They have gone up against the defenses of Baltimore, Tennessee, Dallas and the Giants. In the one game they faced a poor defense (Cleveland), Carson Palmer sat out the game with an injury. Palmer is getting healthier, and should find some space against a Jets defense that is ranked 20th in the league. New York's defense is within 1 yard of the bottom of the league in passing yards allowed. I like this game to go OVER the total.
