Los Angeles Chargers at New York Jets Betting Preview

In Week 9 of Monday Night Football, the Los Angeles Chargers are set to face off against the New York Jets. The Chargers currently hold a 3-4 record for the season, having secured a notable victory over the Chicago Bears in a Sunday Night Football clash. Positioned in the AFC West, the Chargers occupy the second spot in their division.

On the other side, the New York Jets, with a season record of 4-3, have been on an impressive three-game winning streak. Their latest triumph was an overtime thriller against the New York Giants. The Chargers are -3.5 in this game on the road.

Chargers Looking to Keep Momentum

The Chargers are eager to pick up a second consecutive victory, aiming to bring their season record to .500. In the seven games they’ve played so far, they’ve scored 174 points while allowing 168. Their passing game ranks among the best in the league, averaging nearly 259 yards per game, with quarterback Justin Herbert on the brink of reaching 2,000 passing yards for the season, needing just 110 more.

Keenan Allen has emerged as Herbert’s primary target, tallying an impressive 54 receptions, 643 yards, and four touchdowns this season. The running game has been shared between Joshua Kelley and Austin Ekeler, with Kelley leading the team in rushing yards with 305.

Looking ahead, the Chargers will face the Detroit Lions next week and embark on a trip to Green Bay, followed by a home matchup against the Ravens at the end of November. The Chargers roster boasts considerable talent, but they’ve yet to string together a consistent run of success.

Jets Looking to Grab Home Win

The New York Jets are eyeing a 3-2 home record and have already secured wins against the Bills in Week 1 and the Giants in their most recent outing. Quarterback Zach Wilson has thrown for 1,337 yards and five touchdowns this season, with Garrett Wilson as his primary receiving target, notching 39 receptions, 469 yards, and two touchdowns.

Breece Hall leads the Jets’ rushing attack, accumulating 443 yards and two touchdowns on 78 carries. The Jets’ ground game is averaging 109 yards per game. Defensively, the Jets have been solid, allowing just 18.4 points per game. To secure a victory against the Chargers, the Jets will need to ensure that Hall is involved early and often in their offensive strategy.

Looking ahead, the New York Jets will face the Las Vegas Raiders in Week 10 before traveling to Buffalo for their next matchup. They will then have the honor of playing in the first Black Friday game, hosting the Miami Dolphins on November 24th.
