NY Jets are 8.5-Point Underdogs to the Cowboys in Week 2

  • The Dallas Cowboys are favored by 8.5 points against the New York Jets on Sunday.
  • Zach Wilson is 8-14 as the starting quarterback for the New York Jets.
  • The total set at 39.0 points is favored to go under with -115 odds.

DALLAS – The New York Jets are 8.5-point underdogs to the Dallas Cowboys as two of the NFL’s best defenses go head-to-head on Sunday. New York will try to win without quarterback Aaron Rodgers, who suffered a season-ending Achilles injury in Week 1.

The Jets aren’t worthy of a bet on the Super Bowl without Rodgers. Even more, NFL sportsbooks give the Jets +330 moneyline odds to take down the Cowboys in Week 2.

Dallas Cowboys Vs New York Jets Betting Lines

Team Spread Moneyline Total
Dallas Cowboys -8.5 (-110) -440 O39.0 (-105)
New York Jets +8.5 (-110) +330 U39.0 (-115)

The Cowboys dominated the New York Giants 40-0 in Week 1 with two touchdowns from their defense and special teams. A dominant defensive performance moved the Cowboys Super Bowl odds up to +900; the fourth-shortest odds in the NFL.

Meanwhile, the Jets are trending in the opposite direction despite a 22-16 victory against the Buffalo Bills in Week 1. Rodgers’ absence dropped the Jets Super Bowl odds from +1200 to +5000 after the injury became official.

Can the Defense Lead the Jets to Cover?

Zach Wilson went 14/21 for 140 passing yards, one passing touchdown and an interception in the Jets’ Week 1 win. With such a good Jets defense behind him, Wilson proved he’s capable of covering an 8.5-point spread against the Dallas Cowboys.

The Jets forced Josh Allen to turn the ball over four times on Monday, including three interceptions by Jordan Whitehead. Cowboys quarterback Dak Prescott threw 15 interceptions in just 12 games last season.

As long as Zach Wilson limits turnovers offensively, the Jets dominant defense can lead them to covering the 8.5-point spread with -110 odds.
