How to bet the Week 16 Thursday Night Football game

If I were to tell you that the Jacksonville Jaguars travel to the Meadowlands to take on the New York Jets on Thursday Night Football in Week 16, you might very well in a normal year tune out. Not so fast, my friends! The Jets are only one game back of a Wildcard berth and the Jags are suddenly back in the divisional race, just a game behind the Tennessee Titans. We’ve got some bubble team excitement!

With Mike White still unlikely to start for the Jets, Zach Wilson will continue to lead a team that had clearly moved on from him just a few weeks ago. The Jags counter with a red-hot Trevor Lawrence, winning three of their last four games including a stunning comeback against the Cowboys last week. If the Jags can negotiate past this Jets team, all that stands in their way of the AFC South title will be a moribund Texans squad and a home game against the Titans for all the marbles. Exciting stuff!

As much as I like the Jets defense, I’m believing in the Trevor Lawrence hype. Everything is starting to fall into place for this team and bonus - they get to play Zach Wilson. I’ll gladly take the Jags in essentially a pick ‘em spot here and I’ll take the over on a laughably low line just because I can’t consciously bet under on 38 unless it’s weather related.
