Saints vs Jets Predictions Week 14 | NFL Pick of the Day

Although it is likely to be overlooked, Week 14 of the NFL season features an interesting matchup between the New Orleans Saints and New York Jets.

The Saints made the switch to Taysom Hill at quarterback for a Week 13 Thursday night battle against the Cowboys, and although the versatile signal-caller had his moments, New Orleans still came out on the losing end.

The Jets, on the other hand, continued to show some signs of improvement in their Week 13 contest, a 33-18 loss to the Eagles. New York did a good job hanging tough in the first half.

Let’s dive deeper into this pairing and highlight our best bets and predictions for this interconference matchup.

Please note that all NFL gameday odds are current as of 1:00 p.m. ET on Friday, December 10.

Saints vs Jets Prediction

This section is being written under the assumption the Saints will have Alvin Kamara back at their disposal. The idea of a Week 14 return is supported by the fact the star back was able to practice in limited fashion leading up to the contest against the Cowboys.

Kamara should be nothing if not refreshed after having last played on November 7. A Kamara-led ground attack, supplemented by the threat and production of Hill is the key to success for New Orleans.

The Jets continued to struggle to defend the run against the Eagles, despite the availability of tackling machines C.J. Mosley and Quincy Williams. Philadelphia lit up New York for 185 rushing yards at 4.5 yards per carry. The Jets have given up the third-most rushing yards per contest (133.4/game) on the season.

The matchup isn’t bad for Hill through the air, either, since New York is also surrendering the fourth-most passing yards per contest at 263.4 yards per game.

On the other side, the going could be much tougher for Zach Wilson. While the Saints secondary has played downright poorly at times this season, this is still a savvy veteran defensive unit that’s picked off 14 passes and collected 26 sacks through 12 games.

Wilson is still going through plenty of growing pains with respect to ball security (11 interceptions), and New York’s offensive line has allowed its quarterbacks to be taken down 33 times, ranking them in the bottom half of the league.

New Orleans also forces teams to be one-dimensional due to what is typically an elite run defense. The Saints are giving up just 96.4 rushing yards per contest and allowing an NFL-low 3.4 RB yards per carry.

New York already struggles to run the ball — the O-line is facilitating just 3.96 RB yards per carry and the Jets are averaging the third-fewest rushing yards per game — so it would appear highly unlikely Wilson has much luck trying to run a balanced attack.

I like the Saints to eventually notch a double-digit win here.

Prediction: Saints 27, Jets 14

As detailed earlier, I see the Saints eventually wearing down the Jets in what should be a relatively low-scoring matchup, with what I assume will be a healthy Kamara playing a significant role.

From a statistical trend perspective, it’s worth noting New Orleans is 3-3 ATS on the road this season and 2-1 against the number in interconference games. In turn, New York is 2-4 and 0-3 ATS in those respective splits.

Zooming further out, the Saints are 34-29-1 (54 percent) against the spread versus AFC opponents since Sean Payton‘s arrival in 2006.

With the Saints still on the outer fringes of the NFC playoff picture at 5-7, I like New Orleans to prevail in our NFL bet of the day.

The Jets have been a poor defensive team in general, surrendering an NFL-high 367 points on the season. A good chunk of their troubles have come early in games, with New York tied with the Lions for second-most first-half points per home game allowed (14.5).

One needs to look no further than the Week 13 loss to the Eagles to find evidence of their tendency to allow visitors to get off to fast starts. Philly racked up 24 first-half points while playing with backup quarterback Gardner Minshew.

While the Saints haven’t exactly been a prolific first-half offense, they’ve actually performed much better in that regard on the road. New Orleans’ average of 10.6 points per first half on the road is a significant leap from the 6.0 points per first half it averages at home.

Hill should have worked off a lot of rust against Dallas, and assuming he has Kamara back in the fold, I like New Orleans to have a solid offensive first half in this spot.

NFL Betting News

  • Early money slightly leaning towards the over in the 49ers-Rams matchup

    DraftKings Sportsbook is reporting good two-way action on the over/under for the NFC Championship Game matchup between the San Francisco 49ers and Los Angeles Rams.

    Betting Impact:
    Per DraftKings, the over of 46 points has attracted 55% of the bets and 60% of the money thus far. Much moreso than the AFC Championship Game, the betting splits on the point spread and total in this game are much more evenly split, so the sportsbook does not have too much liability on either at the moment. From a moneyline perspective, Los Angeles's -170 moneyline odds have attracted 60% of the bets and 70% of the money.

  • Early bettors give slight lean to the Rams over the 49ers

    Based on the betting splits at DraftKings Sportsbook, the favored Los Angeles Rams are getting slightly more betting attention in their matchup with the San Francisco 49ers.

    Betting Impact:
    Per DraftKings, Los Angeles's -3.5 point spread has received 65% of the bets and 61% of the handle thus far. Bettors are clearly torn in this matchup considering the Rams have arguably been playing better football through the first two playoff games, while the 49ers have won six consecutive games against the Rams, including a thrilling Week 18 overtime victory in Los Angeles.

  • Early money more than 4/1 on the over in the Bengals-Chiefs matchup

    DraftKings Sportsbook is reporting one-sided betting action for Sunday's over/under in the matchup between the Cincinnati Bengals and Kansas City Chiefs.

    Betting Impact:
    Per DraftKings, the over of 54.5 points has attracted 75% of the bets and 85% of the money thus far. At this point, the sportsbook has big liability to the Chiefs point spread and the over in this matchup, as their most ideal scenario would be a Bengals cover in a low-scoring game at the moment. From a moneyline perspective, Kansas City's -335 moneyline odds have attracted 58% of the bets and 61% of the money.

    CIN vs. KC Game Page

  • Early money 3/1 on the Chiefs over the Bengals

    DraftKings Sportsbook is reporting one-sided betting action for Sunday's matchup between the Cincinnati Bengals and Kansas City Chiefs, as the majority of the action is backing the favored Chiefs.

    Betting Impact:
    Per DraftKings, Kansas City's -7 point spread has received 61% of the bets and 76% of the handle thus far. Cincinnati is shaping up to be the biggest need of any side or any total this weekend, as the public seems to be enamored with the Chiefs after their thrilling Divisional Round win over Buffalo.

  • 49ers-Rams over/under reaches lowest number of the week

    After another line movement, the over/under for the NFC Championship matchup between the San Francisco 49ers and Los Angeles Rams has reached its lowest total of the week.

    Betting Impact:
    Per DraftKings, the 49ers-Rams over/under on Sunday night was posted at 47.5 points. It was quickly bet down to 46.5 in less than 24 hours. However, it has once again moved toward the under, and now currently sits at 46 points. Given that there has not yet been buyback on the over, it is extremely unlikely we see the total get back to anywhere close to the 47.5 points it opened at.
