The Denver Broncos are facing the New York Jets on Thursday night as they hope to win for the third time in four games, but the odds have only been moving in New York's direction since the spread opened with the Jets as 5-point favorites.
According to our partners over from Odds Shark, the spread for Thursday's game has been changed to have the Jets as 6.5-point favorites over the Broncos. Despite having nearly identical records, the Jets are only up a game on Denver, it's abundantly clear that the Jets are the superior team.
New York has one of the best defenses in the league, but the team has struggled against quality opponents. Their four losses have all come against quality teams in New England, Baltimore and Oakland, but they've also had a pretty difficult schedule so far. It wouldn't be surprising to see the Broncos offense struggle against a quality defense like the Jets' one. The current spread is set at 40 points, compared to when it opened at 42 points.
