Tonight , August 16th, we will be treated with a battle of the New York’s to wrap up the first week of the NFL preseason, as the New York Giants take on the New York Jets at the New Meadowlands Stadium. Game time for this Monday night preseason game is set for 8:00 PM EST. Jets vs Giants Spread, Odds, and Predictions for this preseason match up can be found below!
The New York Giants had a disappointing season last year failing to make the playoffs for a fifth straight season after a solid 12-4 campaign in 2008. The Giants started the season 5-0 and looked like they were going to find themselves in the post season yet again, but they fell apart going 3-8 in their next 11 games to finish with a 8-8 record, which put them 3rd in their NFC East division behind the Cowboys and Eagles. Coach Tom Coughlin and the Giants organization plans to get back into the playoffs this year, but know it will be a tough road as they are in the most competitive division in the NFC.
The New York Jets, led by rookie QB Mark Sanchez, surprised a lot of people last season as they finished off the regular season with a 9-7 record which was good enough for a Wild Card playoff berth. As underdogs, the Jets went on to beat the Cincinnati Bengals 24-14 in the Wild Card playoff game, and then went on to beat the Chargers in San Diego 17-14 also as underdogs. The Jets fell to the Indianapolis Colts 30-17 in the AFC Conference Championship. The New York Jets Super Bowl odds are set at +1400 as we head into the preseason, making them one of the favorites in the AFC.

Jets vs Giants Preseason Predictions:
Spread/Money Line Prediction: The Jets have added depth to their roster in the off season with some pretty big name acquisitions, including former Pittsburgh Steelers receiver Santanio Holmes and Chargers running back LaDainian Tomlinson. The Jets have one of the best defenses in the league, even without Darrelle Revis who is currently holding out on the Jets. Jets coach Rex Ryan should have his team prepared well for tonight’s preseason opener game, I like the Jets to beat the Giants tonight. PREDICTION – JETS TO COVER THE -2.5 SPREAD
Game Total Prediction: Both teams have some depth on defense and I think the offenses will be working out some kinks tonight in their first preseason game of the season. I am leaning toward the under here tonight, but I think the main play is on the Jets. PREDICTION – UNDER 33 POINTS
