The NFL is showing off their wonderful product to the people of London by sending the New York Jets and the Atlanta Falcons to display this great game.

The game is great, but no guarantees on this specific game.

The Jets won their first game last week against the Tennessee Titans, 27-24 in overtime. Rookie quarterback Zach Wilson didn’t look too bad throwing for 297 yards and two touchdowns. New York faced a Titans offense that was missing its top-two receiving options in A.J. Brown and Julio Jones. Atlanta will be playing without Calvin Ridley and Russell Gage, maybe that’s a good sign for the Jets to pick up a win in London?

The Falcons took a tough loss to the Washington Football Team, losing on a late touchdown pass from Taylor Heinicke to J.D. McKissic with just 33 seconds remaining in the game. It wasn’t all bad for Atlanta though, as quarterback Matt Ryan threw for 283 yards and four touchdown passes; “running back” Cordarrelle Patterson caught three of Ryan’s touchdowns. 

Here are three prop bets for the Jets vs. Falcons in London, odds courtesy of WynnBET Sportsbook.

Zach Wilson OVER 242.5 Passing Yards (-125)

The Falcons passing defense has not been very good, so much so that the rookie quarterback for the Jets could find some success.

Atlanta allowed a season low 264 passing yards to Jalen Hurts of the Philadelphia Eagles in Week 1, and they rank dead-last in the NFL with 32 points per game against its defense.

I’m not sure how good Zach Wilson is going to be in the future, and this Falcons’ defense will make him look good in London on Sunday morning.

Corey Davis OVER 58.5 Receiving Yards (-125)

Not to keep verbally bashing this awful Atlanta defense, but they got torched by Washington’s Terry McLaurin in Week 4 as the receiver hauled in 123 yards on just six catches.

Zach Wilson has averaged just 6.7 yards per pass attempt this season, but last week averaged 8.7, a tell-tale sign that he may be getting more confident in throwing the deep ball. And in last week’s game Corey Davis picked up 111 receiving yards. 

I like this connection to grow even stronger in Week 5.

Cordarrelle Patterson OVER 4.5 Receptions (-125)

Ryan will have to control the offense this week with no Calvin Ridley or Russell Gage. And considering that running back/wide receiver Cordarrelle Patterson is third on the team in targets and second in catches, he should be a slam dunk to notch five catches in this depleted offense.

The Jets have seen a lot of running backs used against them as receivers. Christian McCaffrey of the Carolina Panthers caught nine passes for 89 yards in Week 1, James White of the New England Patriots caught six passes for 45 yards in Week 2, and Jeremy McNichols of the Titans caught eight passes for 74 yards in Week 4.
