The New England Patriots have opened as five-point favorites in their Week 2 matchup against the New York Jets. The over/under has also been set at 42.5 points.

Betting Impact:

Both of these teams enter this game 0-1, but New England's loss was more surprising given that they were beaten as three-point favorites by the Dolphins. However, that did not stop oddsmakers from making the Patriots bigger favorites than they were on the lookahead line, as this spread was -3.5 before last week's games kicked off. Thus, this is likely a reaction to New York's 19-14 loss to the Panthers and how poor their offense looked in rookie quarterback Zach Wilson's first start.
