What happened to the Jets!? After jumping out to a surprising 3-0 start under rookie head coach Rex Ryan, the Jets are on a three game losing skid. The Jets are banking that a visit to Oakland will help them avoid a fourth straight loss. The Raiders themselves are coming off a shocking upset over the Philadelphia Eagles and will look to extend the Jet’s losing streak. The Jets have looked slopping in their last three losses, particularly Mark Sanchez. Last week alone, the former USC start threw five interceptions and was emotional after the game. Ryan will stick with Sanchez in this one even though he has throwing for one touchdown pass and eight interceptions during the losing streak. As bad as Sanchez’s 56.7 rating is, the Raiders quarterback JaMarcus Russell ranks 35th out of 36 quarterbacks with a rating of 51.0. Some people have flirted with the notion that Russell could be the biggest first overall quarterback bust since Ryan Leaf. The Jets sixth ranked defense took a big blow last week as defensive tackle Kris Jenkins tore his ACL and was placed on injured reserve. Russell has seven career wins as an NFL starter and one of them was against the Jets last Oct. 19. Last year, New York lost all four of its visits to the West Coast, getting outscored 101-59.

Jets vs Raiders Betting Predictions:
Spread – I am taking the Raiders to beat this 7 point spread. They have talent on defense in Richard Seymour and Nnamdi Asomugha that will pester and continue the struggles for Mark Sanchez. They held the high powered Eagles offense last week to just nine points. The loss of Jenkins and also, the Jets will again be without wide receiver Jerricho Cotchery, who will miss his second straight game with a hamstring injury, as well as wide receiver Brad Smith and cornerback Lito Sheppard will greatly affect the Jets. This one will be low scoring game, with the Raiders keeping it close. Lay it down on the RAIDERS TO BEAT THE SPREAD at Bodog.com.
Over/Under – Take the UNDER 35 total points in this afternoon’s Jets vs Raiders Week 7 game. Both quarterbacks have been struggling mightily and both offenses in general have not played well. The defenses are the cornerstone for both teams so don’t expect enough scoring to eclipse the 35 point mark. $100 bet on the UNDER pays $190 at Bodog.com.
