The Denver Broncos are coming off their first win of the season after an improbable comeback win over the Chicago Bears on Sunday where they erased a 21-point deficit to win by three points. They will now host the New York Jets who are coming off a tough home loss to the Kansas City Chiefs on Sunday Night Football.
According to DraftKings Sportsbook, the Broncos open 2.5-point home favorites over the Jets with an over/under at 41 points. While the Jets offense is pretty bad, their defense just gave Patrick Mahomes headaches for a full 60 minutes. But for now, Denver has the slight edge with oddsmakers.

I actually hate this line. The Jets defense is legit and darn near let their team to a win over the Chiefs last night. If I had to pick the Jets defense beating Russell Wilson or the Zach Wilson beating the Broncos defense, I’d probably lean towards Wilson having the upper hand here.
While I hope Denver can find a way to win this game, its hard to take a bet on that. If we get the Broncos defense of the first half, then Zach Wilson is going to have a career day like Justin Fields had. However, if that second half defense shows up instead, then I think I like Denver’s chances to win a close game against a very strong defensive unit in New York.
