After struggling in Week 1, the Jets are facing another imposing defense on Sunday in the 49ers. Here are the live odds, spread, total, and moneyline for Jets vs. 49ers in Week 2.
The Jets vs. 49ers odds are set at Jets +7 on Sunday. The total is at 42.5 with the Jets coming in at +260 on the moneyline.
Jets vs. 49ers Week 2 Live Odds
The Jets opened +6.5 at most sportsbooks back in May, but this line is moving a bit after Week 1 results. The Jets were completely inept offensively against the Buffalo Bills. Oddsmakers likely weren’t impressed by their performance.
With that said, the 49ers dropped their Week 1 matchup against the Arizona Cardinals despite coming in as strong favorites. The defending NFC champions are going to try and rebound from that disappointing loss with a big showing against New York.
After watching the Jets against the Bills, it’s tough to see a path to victory, but they do have enticing moneyline odds. After all, the Cardinals were hovering around +250 against the 49ers in Week 1 and they sprung the upset.
San Francisco will be without Richard Sherman and possibly George Kittle which should even things up a bit. However, the Jets recently placed Le’Veon Bell on IR and will have to rely on Frank Gore in the backfield.
The Jets vs. 49ers odds in terms of the total is set at 42.5 right now. The Jets showed that they can force some turnovers in Week 1. With Nick Bosa leading the unit, the 49ers have one of the best defensive lines in football.
This has all the makings for a low-scoring game after the Jets and 49ers struggled to score in Week 1. Both teams are strongest on the defensive side of the ball.
