I know, I know - the Jets always win this preseason matchup. The theory goes that the Jets, historically the bottom-dwellers take this game more seriously and beat the Giants when they can because they certainly couldn't beat them in the regular season. Well, times have changed. The Giants won 4 games last year. One could argue the Jets are the better team. Also, the head coach has changed. Tom Coughlin is a tough as nails coach who demands the best from his players no matter when they are playing. After their 31-7 trashing of the Colts, the Jets will be taking it easier this game. In week three of the preseason, dogs facing opponents off back-to-back wins with the last being a blowout win cover nearly nine out of ten times. One unit on NY at +3 and one unit on NY to win outright.
