The 7-5 New York Jets got their biggest win of the season back in Week 9 against the AFC’s No. 1 seeded Buffalo Bills. The 9-3 Bills are well rested after taking care of the Patriots last week on Thursday night while the Jets just couldn’t pull out a game in Minnesota. Last time they matched up Zach Wilson was at quarterback for New York, but now their offense looks much better with Mike White and yet the Bills are still big favorites. 

Let’s see what Vegas thinks about this one up in western New York.

Jets vs. Bills Prediction and Pick

The Bills thought that Von Miller was the final piece of the championship puzzle, but now the veteran pass rusher is out for the season with a torn ACL and that could be a big blow to their pass rush. In the last matchup, the Jets only threw for 136 yards, but with Mike White at quarterback they are a lot more dynamic moving the ball through the air. 

The Bills have a top two offense in the league pretty much no matter how you measure it. Josh Allen played very well last week against New England, which is a good sign because he struggled in Week 9 against New York, throwing two picks. 

The Jets are a playoff caliber team, and have a good enough defensive line to get after Josh Allen all game. Their defense is top 5 in the NFL and anytime you have a dominant unit like that 10 points is too big of a spread. The concern is that Mike White turns into a pumpkin and isn’t good enough to keep the Jets in it, but he threw two interceptions last week and the Jets still outgained Minnesota by 200 yards and had a chance to win it. I’d be surprised if anyone in the league can blow out the Mike White Jets.
