In the AFC-East standings, the Jets are in 3rd place with a record of 6-9. Within the AFC, New York is 13th, heading into week 17. New York comes into this one having not covered the spread in three straight games on the road. Their overall ATS record for the season is 5-9-1.

The Jets are coming off a win in their last game, where they beat the Commanders with a score of 30-28. Even with the straight-up win, the Jets did not cover vs. the spread against Washington. On the spread, the Jets were favored by 3. With the over/under line set at 36.5 points, the over hit with a combined 58 points.

Versus the Commanders, the Jets finished with 36 rushing attempts, and Breece Hall led the way with 95 yards. Meanwhile, Trevor Siemian had 49 pass attempts, resulting in 217 yards and a passer rating of 64.

With a matchup against the Browns’ offense, the Jets defense has allowed an average of 21 points per game so far. They currently are 9th in quarterback hits and are allowing 294.8 yards per contest.

Can the Browns Lock in a Home Win?

As week 17 approaches, Cleveland is in 2nd place in the AFC-North, coming in with an overall record of 10-5. In the AFC, they currently reside in 5th place. As the underdog, Cleveland has gone 2-3-1 this season compared to their ATS record of 7-2 as the favorite. At home, the Browns are 7-1 ATS and 2-4-1 vs. the spread on the road.

In their most recent game, the Browns picked up a 36-22 win over the Texans. Against the spread, the Browns’ 14-point win was enough to cover as 3-point favorites. Combining for 58 points with Houston, the teams exceeded the over/under line of 40.

Offensively, Joe Flacco totaled 368 passing yards with a completion rate of 64%. On the rushing front, the Browns had 30 attempts, gaining 54 yards. The team converted 6 of 16 third-down attempts.

Browns vs. Jets Player Prop

The passing yards prop for Trevor Siemian against the Browns is at 171.5. According to the odds, there’s a 54% probability of him exceeding this figure, with an under payout of -115.

Siemian has thrown for 393 yards on 88 attempts so far this season. His completion rate currently sits at 52.3%, and he maintains a passer rating of 53.8. Although Siemian played well last week, he will be facing a much tougher Browns defense than what he faced against Washington. I’m taking the under for Siemian’s passing prop.

  • The Prop: Trevor Siemian Under 171.5 Passing Yards (-115)

Browns VS. Jets Predictions

From the time the lines were first released, Cleveland has transitioned from -4 point favorites to their current line of -7 (-110). Conversely, New York is currently +7 (-112) point underdogs on the road.

I’m leaning towards New York to cover as 7-point underdogs in this matchup. Look for New York’s defense to continue playing well and keep the Jets close in this one. I’ll be placing my bet on New York before the game kicks off.

The Pick: Jets +7 | -112 at Fanduel Sportsbook
