Bet on the NFL Monday Night Football in Week 13 features the New York Jets vs. the New England Patriots. In a true battle of the AFC East, these first and second ranked division rivals are both holding 9-2-0 records and will battle for the top spot this Monday.
As we come down to the wire, each and every game becomes that much more critical for teams fighting for a playoff spot. This weeks two featured matchups should be the most exciting games televised this Sunday. Expect both games to come down to the final moments of regulation and bet based off our predictions. The leaders of the AFC North will battle it out on the field this Sunday as QB Ben Roethlisberger attempts to bring his team to their third straight victory.
Big Ben is coming off of a game in which he failed to throw a touchdown. Although his team managed to grab the W in overtime against the Buffalo Bills, the Steelers are going to need their QB to produce in bunches against the Ravens.
The Patriots are the minus 3.5 point favorites with Sportsbook listing the total over under at 46.5.
Pittsburgh's defense leads the league in opponents rushing yards per game, giving up just 64 yards per contest and ranking fifth in opponents total yards per game. The Ravens offense ranks 14th in the NFL in total offense per game and 14th in total rushing yards per game.
Both the Jets and Patriots lead the way in the AFC East. New York has now won in each of their last four games and looks stronger than ever. QB Mark Sanchez continues to play effective football for the Jets and should be able to produce against a New England Patriots team that ranks second to last in total defensive yards per game.
New York's exciting defense (which ranks third in the league in total defensive yards per game) will have the task of maintaining QB Tom Brady from going off for a big game. New England leads the NFL betting spread in points per game, averaging 30.4 per contest. They've now scored at least 31 points against each of their last three opponents and have picked up impressive wins against the Colts and Steelers during that span.
