The Jets and Patriots are currently tied atop the AFC standings, with the winner of this game claiming the top spot in the conference and the AFC East division.

With three consecution victories, including wins against Pittsburgh and Indianapolis, the public NFL betting lines action is on the New England Patriots (-3.5).

In their last three games, New England quarterback Tom Brady has thrown for 877 yards, 9 touchdowns and no interceptions. Brady’s passer ratings in those contests were 117.4, 123.1, and 158.3.

The New York Jets defense will be keying in on Brady, to try and halt one of the hottest passing attacks in the NFL.

The Jets rank 12th against the pass, giving up an average of 210.6 passing yards per game. Surprisingly, New York has allowed 15 passing touchdowns this NFL betting lines season – more than double the total for the top-ranked New Orleans Saints.

Additionally, the Jets have just placed their Safety Jim Leonhard on Injured Reserve, and he will miss the remainder of the season with a shin injury he sustained in practice.

Expect the Patriots to win and cover this NFL betting lines Monday.

Marcello’s Prediction: New England Patriots: 34 New York Jets: 27

Messina Mention: This will be the first Monday Night Football game that includes two 9-2 (or better) teams since 1990.

NFL Expert Pick: New England Patriots -3.5
