The New York Jets come into their game against the Arizona Cardinals at MetLife Stadium as 4 1/2-point favorites, according to oddsshark.com.
New York hasn't been anything but an underdog in quite some time, but facing a team that hasn't won a game since September will usually help that cause. Arizona has simply been brutal since starting 4-0, giving it the same record as the Jets, 4-7.
The Cardinals aren't just losing by a small margin in many of those games either. In those seven contests, Arizona is 1-5-1 against the spread, with its only cover coming two weeks ago against the Atlanta Falcons. Of course, the Cardinals still lost despite Matt Ryan throwing five interceptions.
A match-up to watch will be the Jets' offense against Arizona's defense. New York has had its issues scoring, ranking 22nd in that department. The Cardinals actually rank 11th in that category defensively, due to some playmakers in the secondary.
